BlueTooth Speakers by BlueAnt

Bluetooth speakers are a great way to put audio sound where you want it without running wires.

Couple of things to keep in mind when toying with the idea of getting a stereo bluetooth speaker system...

1) You must be running a device with Bluetooth A2DP capabilities (Advanced Audio Distribution Profile). Any Mac running either Leopard (10.5) or Snow Leopard (10.6) is fully compliant with A2DP and can take full advantage of the stereo aspect of Bluetooth. There have been bluetooth speakers around for some time but those haven't been stereo. Only with the release of Leopard (10.5.6 to be specific) has this capability be available for the Mac platform. The version 3.0 software release for the iPhone and iPod touch bring this feature along too.

2) Keep you expectations within reason. Remember, Bluetooth is a "NEAR-BY" technology meant to transmit within a 10 meter (approx 30 ft) range. This means that it will work fine for a normal room but not-so-well for broadcasting across the whole house.

Big sound from a small box.

Mouse - Apple Mighty Mouse, Wireless

If a wireless mouse calls to you, you might want to consider this mouse from Apple. It's the same mouse that I reviewed in an earlier post (Mouse - Apple Might Mouse Wired) but instead of being a wired version, it is a wireless model.

It uses bluetooth technology to communicate with your Mac. It has the same pros and cons as the wired version, with an extra pro for being wireless.

I won't repeat myself with all the details but if you would like to know more, just visit the link above for my full review.

Keyboard - Apple Bluetooth Wireless

Sleek and compact, this Bluetooth keyboard by Apple gets my top pick for those looking for a small keyboard without all the hassles of being tethered to your machine by a cable.
I'll admit that I wished this had a numeric keypad but if you're looking for a compact entry divise, this can't be beat. It works well and sits nicely on your lap so typing while leaning back is quite comfortable.

I use this keyboard in tandem with my wired keyboard. When I get into my writing mode, I grab this, lean back, and start typing away.
