    "Bluetooth technology is based on short-range radio technology. Bluetooth is a cheap alternative to such other wireless technology as IEEE 802.11b, which is actually quite expensive. Unfortunately however, Bluetooth is a lot slower then 802.11b and its range is also shortened which makes it more appropriate for people on the move and/or who like to have the ability to link up to another computer copy over a few small files and pack up and leave. Bluetooth is the perfect solution for laptop networking."

    BoPC has just posted their review on a BlueTake BlueTooth Kit ::

    "The ability to connect multiple devices wirelessly was, in the past, very expensive. Your only choice was 802.11b wireless networking. Even a small network of 3 computers could cost you (on the cheap side) 300USD. I do not care who you are, 300 bucks is a lot of cash. What has been on the table for the last year or so is a standard that would allow a user to connect multiple devices together, without the hassle of wiring, and do so with out spending a fortune. This is what we are looking at today. BlueTake's Solution for Bluetooth networking. BT007 and BT009 Bluetooth devices."
