Bluetooth And Apple




The new Apple powerbook G4 are among the first



computers to offer Bluetooth technology 2.0+EDR.



The 2.0+EDR technology, which still backwards



compatible with 1.0, is up to three times faster



than previous versions, offering maximum data rate



transfers of up to 3 MBps. Being the first company



to certify a system with 2.0+EDR, Apple continues



to make great use of the Bluetooth technology.





Full support



In addition to the powerbook G4 portables, there



are other Bluetooth enabled computers available



from Apple, including the iBook, iMac G5, eMac,



and the Power Mac G5.





Making life easier



When you turn the Bluetooth feature on, your Mac



can easily perform a file transfer or even a



synchronization. From the Bluetooth selection



menu, you can choose to either send a file or



browse devices, quickly and easily. Or, you can



click the sync button in iSync to update your



cell phone or Palm OS handheld.





The Mac and GSM/GPRS mobile phone with Bluetooth



work to make each other more useful. By using



iSync, you can keep your phone updated without



having to type any info, as you can keep the



information in the more manageable address book



on your Mac instead.





You can also use your Bluetooth enabled Mac to



print documents and digital images to select a



printer that also supports the technology of



Bluetooth. Or, you can also use a headset to



talk to your friends during an iChat session.





Your Mac also has the ability to use Bluetooth



technology to communicate with your Palm OS



handheld. This way, you can perform a HotSync



operation without using any cables. You can also



send your business card or calendar events directly



to someone else's handheld usingthe technology of



Bluetooth.





The implementation of Bluetooth by Apple is the



latest in a series of moves that have caused



great shift in the computer industry. Apple



established USB as the standard interface with



the launching of the first Mac back in 1998.





Since then, Apple established the 802.11 wireless



standard of networking with the launch of the



iBook and AirPort in 1999. During 2003, Apple



launched AirPort Extreme, which was based on



the new 802.11g high speed technology of wireless.





Now, Bluetooth helps to further strengthen the



dominant position of the Mac in wireless



communications, helping to preserve Apple's



reputation for being the first to market with



innovative technology that integrates right into
