Plug, Configure, & Play


There's no such thing as plug and play in Bluetooth.

It's usually plug, configure, and then, maybe, play.


Devices that do only one thing (such as printer adapters and headsets)

fare better than more complex devices (such as access points and

PDAs with integrated Bluetooth).


While the technology may be simple to understand, it's clear that

many vendors have forgotten to make configuration software that

 is user friendly.

That's not surprising considering the technology industry's track record--hardware is easy, software is hard.
