bluetooth? wifi? the future is wireless (hopefully, imo)



I tried a bluetooth headset but it had enough extra latency to throw me off (I play rhythm games sometimes). In theory my wifi's fast enough for copying data to/from my phone, but I don't think it offers an easy way to do that (and my camera doesn't have wifi at all).

I could HotSync my Treo over Bluetooth 10 years ago and it was an effortless two-way sync with reasonably good conflict resolution.

It amazes me that nothing quite gets that right these days.


Maybe something like that would be usable for text or sound, but transferring a video over bluetooth is paniful.


WiFi is clearly the correct solution in 2017. It's just sad how this has gotten harder for users as technology has otherwise improved.
