Bluetooth refers to a short-range radio technology aimed at simplifying communications among Net devices and between devices and the Internet. It also aims to simplify data synchronization between Net devices and other computers.

Products with Bluetooth technology must be qualified and pass interoperability testing by the Bluetooth Special Interest Group prior to release.

The Bluetooth 1.0 specification consists of two documents: the Foundation Core, which provides design specifications, and the Foundation Profile, which provides interoperability guidelines.

Bluetooth's founding members include SPAMSPAMSPAMSPAMSPAMSPAMSPAMSPAM, IBM, Intel, SPAMSPAMSPAMSPAMSPAM and Toshiba.

Just seems to me that in the City and Heavily Residential or Buisness areas that you're putting a Lan Jack outside your house.

Well, Bluetooth, (unlike that crappy Segway) is actually supposed to be a fairly revolutionary technology. SPAMI don't really get all what it's supposed to do that will make it so great, that is different that what wireless LANs can do now, unless the whole point is that they're making it affordable, so that they can have everything on wireless LANs. SPAMI heard that it only costs like, $15 per bluetooth chip (chip, not device), or around there.

I know that when our company attends high-tech trade shows, there seems to always be a "bluetooth" pavilion of companies with these so-called "revolutionary" products!
