Bluetooth Hits The Streets

The folks pushing Bluetooth are finally realizing that just putting Bluetooth out there and expecting people to come rushing in isn’t necessarily the best strategy. They’re now starting to push specific uses of Bluetooth. They’ve decided the best area to focus on right now is ways to use Bluetooth in the car, and are specifically targeting Bluetooth-enabled solutions to tackle the recent trend towards banning mobile phone use in cars. Since most of these laws allow hands-free kits (whether or not it actually makes driving-while-yakking any safer), people see it as an easy to understand use of Bluetooth technology. It’s good to see people pushing what a technology is good for, rather than just pushing the technology itself.
