CIRAGO MICRO USB BLUETOOTH ADAPTER INTRODUCTION
As technology in our world becomes increasingly wireless, Bluetooth is showing up in more everyday electronics. Just about every cell phone, PDA, and laptop being released has it already built in. Even newer video game consoles like the Nintendo Wii and Sony Playstation 3 use it for their controllers. For the transfer of sound and data between devices over a short range, Bluetooth is the way to go. Should one not have a PC with Bluetooth capabilities, it is easy to purchase a USB adapter like the one I will be reviewing today. It comes from a company called Cirago whose name might not be as recognizable as some manufacturers, but they've been around for some time. I look forward to ditching the USB cable I've been using to transfer files between my PC and cell phone, so let's check this adapter out and see how well it works.
