I bought this Bluetooth USB dongle earlier this week, plugged it in this morning, installed the software and went online – via mobile. IT WORKS! IT ACTUALLY WORKS! Can you imagine?

No need for any dumb Nokia modem drivers, no huge software packages that need to be run on autostart, no buggy user interfaces – this little stick just works the way it is supposed to be working. Technology that makes me smile again :-)

Hat tip to my ndugu Mzeecedric for pointing me to the updated wp-shortstat plugin as well as to SlimStat – on which I’ll need to have a closer look once I’ve decided on my next wp-theme/template: Regulus 2, Fauna Beta 3, Sirius 1.0 or K2 Beta Two? The latter one comes with an awesome AJAX-powered live search among other goodies. I especially like K2, but understand that it will be difficult to implement my neat (Tusker-styled) Flickr-badge. Stay tuned!

  1. Sounds good. UMTS? I was thinking about the posibility using a bluetooth dongle with a modern cellphone as a VoIP Phone? Or any bluetooth headset for wireless phonecalls via my ADSL-Line.

  2. You mean, the cellphone as the actual headset for use with VoIP? The software which came shipped with the stick (link above, BlueSoleil) has a SKYPE support. Let me check that.
    Yani, I am afraid it might not work coz the phone (my phone, that is) does not support the headset profile – but maybe yours.

    As for the BT headset – sure, that’s possible. Just this stick + a headset and then Skype & Co. That BlueSoleil Software bridges the gap between the two systems (BT & Skype).
