Even though BlueTooth has been around for at least 8 years we
here at BizNet have not talked about it much. Why? Because it
was still very under utilized and not in wide spread use. The key word is was. Now
with PDA’s, Cell Phones, and even cars coming with BlueTooth it is time to
talk about it.
BlueTooth is really nothing new or magical.
It is simply a wireless standard, that allows different device to
communicate with each other. This
has been done in the past with different technologies.
But what makes BlueTooth exciting is that with this newer technology they
are able to get more of the desired effects to work, with fewer “bugs”.
And it’s that lack of “Bugs” that is leading to
BlueTooth showing up in more and more places and device.
Over the years I have played with lots of wireless device,
and even though most were good ideas, they feel victim to the weakness of the
technology they used. I have not
yet found this to be the case with BlueTooth.
I have found that it holds a good usable range and has a strong
resistance to interference. In
other words, it works in the real world!
With this in mind, If you are shopping for a new gizmo and
you can get it with BlueTooth, do yourself a favor and get the BlueTooth
At this time I do not know of any aftermarket car stereos
that are BlueTooth enabled, but with a lot of new cars coming with sound systems
that are enabled, and more and more cell phones coming that way, it is only a
matter of time.
In fact I have no doubt that at some point and time
“BlueTooth” will even start to show up on high end audio and video gear.
Now if you already have a cell phone or computer you are
happy with, and don’t want to make that upgrade. Relax, there are lots of adapters already on the market, with
even more on the way.
