I have QQ v 5.4.1 installed on my Google Nexus 7 pad. I am not currently logged to QQ. If I place my pad on my UK passport, QQ opens and asks me to log in. This seems a bit creepy, any explanations?

There is a thing called NFC. The NFC is a new technology that enables devices to connect without cables, just by a simple touch. Most likely, this feature is enabled on your tablet and since the passport is biometric, it interacts with it. To disable this feature on your Nexus 7 pad, go to Applications list > Wireless & Network > NFC. Uncheck the box, then touch the items again, and the tablet won't react.
