Bluetooth all bark, no bite?

Author: JT Smith

CNET: "Microsoft will not add support for Bluetooth to its next version of the Windows operating
system, XP. The company is one of the lead members of the trade group that is developing the
Bluetooth standard.

The lack of support from the Redmond, Wash.-based software giant isn't fatal, but it will likely
slow the technology's once strong momentum. Without Microsoft, Bluetooth adoption becomes
slightly more onerous for hardware manufacturers and software developers as the software
giant won't deliver a family of device drivers or other software to simplify how the technology
gets incorporated."
