blue tooth is a device communication tool
it's like a mini internet between all devices (that have bluetooth enabled) within a particular radius...it allows you to send files from one device to another without connecting them with a wire

Thanks to Christina, Art, Trevor, Iain, Steve, and Barry (if I missed
anyone it's information overload, please excuse) also to Jon for admitting
he didn't know what Bluetooth is... (I know the term, do I get half
credit?)  But no one has answered that one yet.

The various tidbits seem to add up, so after I download & print out and
memorize I can probably/possibly fake it when looking for the cable, etc.
But a fair picture emerges... even just the fact that it can be done is
new info.  Again, thanks to "the list."

My brother has twin grandkids in California, ours is in Seattle (is the
continent tilting toward the west?) and says they got webcams and can now
watch baby chew on his rattle in real time. We'll probably do that too, as
much easier than living on an airplane.  (If I can't operate a cell phone,
I probably can't operate a webcam, but my brother, who lives in New
Jersey, a suburb of New York, will teach us -- tho he doesn't know that

So far, only a cell-phone grandparent, which evokes mixed feelings... a
colleague of my husband's seems to have circulated a broadside -- the
whole crew called to "congratulate" us... Very sweet of course, but I
don't understand the congratulations: WE had nothing to do with it.  It
happened on its own... But extremely interesting... one's own "child "
turning into a father becomes a different person.
