As you all know in this technology age, everything is very good and automated. One technology that we call Bluetooth is very important in helping us to transfer data between two or more bluetooth enabled-device without using cable. But it also has its own disadvantages. Bluetooth can cause brain cancer, but it is a rare possibility. So what do you know about the advantages and disadvantages of Bluetooth?

Yes, transfering files to and from, or connecting cell phone calls to PC or any other BT compatible device, COM ports, and I use it often as remote control in my mobile to my PC when I am lying in my bed and want to switch songs or so. Disadvantages are maybe distance limitations, speed limitations (but I think this is not big deal) and maybe for me hard to instal drivers (but this is posible fault of the manufacturer of device not the technology). Brain cancer? Ok, if it can cause it, add BT to endless list of things which can cause it as well.

The advantage of having blue tooth is that if i take a photo when i am out and about then i tend to blue tooth it to my laptop and then i can send it as this is better than finding the cables for my phone aswell as then trying to just put one photo on to my laptop.

Advantages Can transfer files for free Fairly broad coverage radius of up to 10m as long as no walls or barriers in the form of electromagnetic interference Can be used for multiplayer on some games Can be used to transfer files from computer to phone and vice versa Disadvantages Sometimes, transfer files from mobile phone brand A, brand B to the mobile phone, walking slow. On another occasion, transfer files from your mobile phone brand B, the brand of A can walk with transfer speeds up to twice the transfer speed A to B. Example: Transfer file from HP HP Nokia to Sony Ericsson for example 676kb/menit, but the file transfer Nokia to Sony ericsson can get 1 MB / minute. In other words, Bluetooth transfer speeds are not fixed and depends on the device that sends and receives. Sometimes again, the file transfer, there are infiltrated into the file to be sent, so in addition to getting the file, the recipient mobile phone is also getting a virus. Tip: Often characterized by the message "Thank bluetooth messages from an unknown device?" To minimize the possibility of getting a virus, better not to receive messages from a known device.

Now they're incorporating bluetooth into cars as well. I have Nissan & I have bluetooth built right into the it. When I'm listening radio or cd while I'm driving & the phone rings, then the music mutes automatically & I can answer the phone without taking my hands off the steering wheel. Like others mentioned, data transfer between devices are very convinient too.

The advantage of Bluetooth is it is free of charge. Now most mobile phone has Bluetooth feature. So it is convenient to transfer files by Bluetooth. Today the Bluetooth earphone is also popular. So you can listen to the songs from your mobile phone or talk with someone else by the Bluetooth earphone. The disadvantage of it is that usually the connection is within 10 meters. If the file is large, it takes a longer time. I love China

NOt sure if bluetooth will cause brain cancer.For me, i think that the advantages of bluetooth technology is that it is convenient to use it to transfer file between the phone and the computer, provided they have bluetooth devices.However, the rate of transfer is too slow due to its technology limitations. Hope the computer engineeers will come out with a faster bluetooth technology
