Isn't Bluetooth great?

I'm underwhelmed myself, and wondered if you are, too.

Just for the record, who uses any Bluetooth devices OTHER than mobile phones? Is this technology thriving, diving, or merely gathering speed?

What's Bluetooth?

Have to agree, very underwhelmed also. Only use it to synchronise and transfer files to and from a mobile phone running Windows CE (mostly to synchronise Outlook) I find that the range is so limited that I have to be in the same room therefore it would be as handy to plug in a USB cable. If the range was greater - it would be more beneficial. It was also a pain in the butt to get Activesync communicating properly with an Orange SPV C500, but at least I now know the procedure!

I do however like using a bluetooth headset in the car even though I think everyone who has one stuck on the side of their face (myself included) looks like a proper prat!!

I got a top of the range headset from motorola with a motorola phone (a bundle deal) and the quality of the sound was rubbish, the gadget was too futtery (if that's how ya spell it).

I liked the look of a bluetooth desktop in PCW but the above expereince put me off buying it.
