Bluetooth. Awesome.

I can’t believe I’ve been missing out on this for so long. It’s useful for so much more than handsfree headsets and brain-killing wireless headphones!

My phone has a presenter mode when paired with a PC (and, yes, it can be used as a mouse as well… but I’d never do that :P) and works at a range of at least five meters (which was kind of as far as I could walk whilst still seeing a screen in this place). You’d pay $90 for that kinda gadget on its own!

The only problem I’ve got with it is the lack of a presenter timer built in — if it had that, it’d be perfect. Guess that’s what you pay the $90 for these days :P

If I ever said anything bad about Bluetooth just being a gimmick, consider it sufficiently retracted.
