Your laptop, smartphone, and tablet probably all have integrated Bluetooth support. Bluetooth is a standard that allows devices to communicate wirelessly. Most people are familiar with Bluetooth headsets, but there are more things you can do with Bluetooth.
My favorite use for bluetooth is pairing my PS3 controller with my desktop/laptop. Even though its not natively supported, the third party tools do an incredible job.
Other than that and tethering my phone when out, I find bluetooth to be a little limited - especially for transferring files.
I also had a Gigabyte bluetooth mouse that was easily one of the top 5 mice I've ever used... too bad I lost it.
I'm a big fan of Bluetooth devices I have Bluetooth capability on all of my PC's (10). Mostly I use it for audio devices (2 speakers, 1 pair of headphones 4 speaker adapters) I can connect my tablets and smartphone to every audio source around the home and have options for when I'm on the go too. I have 4 HTPC's set up around the house and I use Logitech DiNovo Mini BT keyboard mouse combo to control 3 of these. I have GoGroove BT FM transmitter to give me Bluetooth capabilities in my car and even have a Bluetooth OBD2 device so I can see stats from my car on the tablet I have a mount on my dashboard for. My latest phone has an NFC Chip and an app that lets you right NFC tags for your device so now I have the ability to touch my phone to the device and connect which is a nice added feature to Bluetooth functionality.
Like Dereck, I am a big fan of bluetooth technologly. As I type this on my Kindle Fire, I am connected to the web with bluetooth tethering app on my smartphone, I am typing on a bluetooth keyboard so that I am not slowed down with a touchscreen keyboard. One of my favorite devices is a complete communications installation on my motorcycle helmet. I can ride through the country listening to Pandora. If I get a call, I can answer it, totally hands free using voice commands. I can dial using voice commands. I can communicate with up to six other bikers while riding, again totally hands free. I can talk comfortably with a passenger on the bike, and when the conversation is going nowhere, I can go back to Pandora. All at 75 MPH. Cool
can we create a network of bluetooth devices to share files and communicate with each other like a wireless network using routing and other methods?
