A-Z of Internet tools and techniques: Letter B

So here we are with Letter B of the tools and techniques which you can use to get the most out of the Internet.

B stands for….

Bluetooth

“Bluetooth gives wireless communication between devices on an opt-in basis and can be used to transfer information easily.” It is an open wireless technology for communicating over short distances between devices.

So you can have bluetooth mobile phone headsets; headphones; mice; keyboards; printers; speakers; and even games consoles use this technology.

If you have an older PC that does not have Bluetooth embedded then you can get a Bluetooth adapter that will let the PC communicate with other Bluetooth devices. Most recent laptops come with a built-in Bluetooth, if this is missing you will need to get an external gadget, these are called dongles.
