So how does Blutooth really work?
the complexity in simplicity
What are blutooth devices?
How does the thing work?
Blutooth uses low power radio waves to transmit data. It is short range usually and ends up ranging up to 32 feet, sometimes only 30 feet. One reason why many devices require alternative forms of data transfer when transferring data is because of the low range on BT devices. I believe that blutooth has a huge lookout towards future with much change yet to come. An example of this is Wifi, and how it changed to the most used internet service. My lookout for blutooth is that it would become the most common source for media and file transfer.

Air Drop feature
Apple uses Air Drop as a feature on its MacBooks as a feature to transfer files among other Mac computers using both Wifi and blutooth. This is my favorite feature on the Mac and by using it, one can get a good understanding of how blutooth works. If you do not own your own Mac, the Miller Learning Center has available iMacs for us. Try this out!
Blutooth in cars
Another favorite blutooth feature of mine is being able to access blutooth in my car. This allows me to play music and get driving directions, wirelessly through my speakers. In my opinion this is a great example of how blutooth makes many features such as navigation, obsolete try this out for yourself!
FIND YOUR OWN BT EXPERIENCE!
In my opinion BT is the new feature used all around the world that promotes wireless media and file sharing, and it will continue to add features to much of our current technology. Find your favorite use of BT and share it on Twitter!
