Blue Tooth Most Overhyped Worst Technology Ever

Postby acsguitar » Tue Aug 15, 2006 2:17 pm

So I got a T-Mobile SDA and my girlfriend has a Motorola Razr.

Thought i'd play with bluetooth cause I always here about how great it is.

#1. Razr won't sync with PC
#2. Razr won't sync with SDA
#3. SDA will sync with PC but can't transfer


Basically the instructions on using bluetooth are horrific at best. It seems there are no instructions at all half the time.

I've probably spent 2 hours trying to get anything to work with bluetooth and it never has.

This technology stinks
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment

Spent some money on it, used it once and now it's lieing around somewhere.

Not that great I agree, great money producing technology though. Like so many things are.

Btw, that sig needs a border. :-b

You're damn skippy on that one! ;-D

As for Bluetooth, I never cared much for it. It's just one of those cool little tidbits you get with whatever device you buy just to say you're in the know of technology. Last month when I upgraded to a RAZR V3M, I was going to buy the Bluetooth accessories but didn't think I needed it anyway. I could use a USB cable for it though to hook onto my PC.

I believe you're thinking of BluRay. That's a type of disc drive, like CD and DVD. But I guess they could be using bluetooth for wireless controllers...didn't think so though.

Ahhh......I think you are correct Teddy. I haven't studied PS3 much, but knew it was blue-something. :-b

Thanks for the correction. ;-D
