The good thing about Bluetooth wireless is that it's not like infrared. Basically that means you can work it through walls. You don't have to point it towards the computer or any other device you have Bluetooth in. I know it's becoming more standard in a lot of the devices so if you were thinking about getting a product with Bluetooth wireless in it, then you should definitely do it. Visit for more information.
