Default What do you use your BT for? - 06-27-2009, 07:31 PM

My mini 9 isn't currently equiped with BT, but since they're inexpensive Iwas thinking of installing one. I wanted to ask you all, what exactly do you use your BT for/with?

Dell Mini 9 | Mac OS X 10.6.1 | BIOS A05 | 2 GB RAM | 16 GB RunCore SSD | NetBookMaker/Installer
1.66GHz Intel Core Duo Mac Mini | Mac OS X 10.6.1 | 2 GB RAM | 60 GB HDD | 1 TB External Storage Drive
1.33GHz PPC G4 | Mac OS X 10.4.11 | 1.5 GB RAM | 40 GB HDD
Get Dropbox

I don't use my BT - disabled it in the BIOS.

I have used it in the past, when I first got my Mini 9 I spent some time with it connected to a monitor, using my Apple keyboard and Mighty Mouse with BT. But apart from that, I haven't used it.

My keyboard and mouse are now paired with my Mac Mini again and I haven't used BT on my Mini 9 since.

I only really use BT for keyboard and mice - and don't bother at all on my laptops ('cos the keyboard is built in).

I use it to tether with my Blackberry if I need teh internets in a pinch. I'm thinking of getting Logitech's new bluetooth mouse so i can stop using a usb port when i use my VX Nano.

I have a Logitech bluetooth laser mouse, works really well. I would find it really annoying without bluetooth because wires are messy to carry around everywhere, and I personally can't stand trackpads (all, not specific to the Mini) except for short periods of time. I miss the little rubber tipped "mouse button" that laptops used to have.

I use it with a Microsoft 5000 Bluetooth Mouse, tethered to a Smartphone and with Motorola S9 Headphones. Love not having to use a USB port for the mouse.

Logitech Mouse and wonderful Apple aluminum keyboard (the short one) for serious work. BTW, thanks for the BT on/off fix that somebody figured out. Awesome.

$29.00 Dell Mobile Mouse and a Nokia cell phone. I'm thinking about a stereo headset.
