bluetoothBelieve it or not, Bluetooth is not dead. Instead it is thriving, despite all the negative karma around the short-range wireless technology. According to Bluetooth SIG, 5 million products with built-in Bluetooth are shipping every week. Nice PR touch: At this pace, if you were to combine the range (30 feet) of these Bluetooth units, one week’s worth would take you around the earth and one year’s worth to the moon SIX times. A stack of 5M Bluetooth chips (1mm each) would be higher than the tallest 12 buildings in the world combined. Bluetooth headsets, mobile phones, cars and mice are in the category of devices that are shipping in volume. Wonder that would happen when BT headsets hit the market?
