My car that I got last December is going to have a Bluetooth module so I can use the car microphone and speakers and buttons on the steering wheel to talk to people while the phone is still in my pocket.
Well, the car module is not available yet, but I went ahead and got the Motorola V600…
The car module is still not available. I got tired of waiting, and just so I could play around with it, I got a USB Bluetooth module. It’s cool! I can transfer pictures I take without having to email them to myself (thus incurring charges from T-Mobile), and I can put files ON the phone – now my background is a nice high quality photo of Zachary.
OK, now the coolest part is that I can use the cell phone as a modem for my laptop and dial out to an ISP. No wires, cell phone within 30 feet, just a bluetooth dongle and drivers installed on the computer. This is cool because now I can support remote sites from work, which pretty much blocks outbound shell access.
I don’t have an ISP, but I want to get one of those thingies that can detect an incoming data vs fax vs voice call and route it appropriately. That way when I am on vacation I will still have dialup access anywhere I go. That’s the plan, anyway.
