Finally received my BT
Dongle but it took more than a month to arrive and was shipped from Hong Kong not the U.S.
I actually like having an external BT
adapter since I seldom use BT
. I know it's off when it's unplugged and the nice little rounded head makes it unlikely to catch on external stuff and tear it or the Mini. When I plugged it in, it came up right away in both XP and Ubuntu without having to install any additional drivers/software.
Don't know about the rest of you, but I've been working in electronics and soldering for a long time and there's no way I'd take a chance on frying my Mini 9 by adding activity lights, etc. Those little copper runs are just too small to solder to without special equipment.
