Bluetooth Wireless Technology

Often times when I'm working with a client the subject of Bluetooth wireless technology comes up. I'm surprised that most people really don't have a clue what this technology is and the practical applications for it's use.

Let's start by defining Bluetooth wireless technology:

Define Bluetooth Wireless technology: A technology specification for linking portable computers, personal digital assistants (PDAs), and mobile phones for short-range transmission of voice and data across a global radio frequency band without the need for cables or wires. Bluetooth is a frequency hopping technology in the 2.4GHz frequency spectrum, with a range of 30 feet.

My most common use of Bluetooth wireless...a wireless headset for one of my phones. Comes in handy. I get a horrible signal in one part of my house on my cell phone. I set the cell phone in the part of the house that gets a solid signal then I'm free to roam 30 or so feet away from the phone and carry on my conversation.
