Bluetooth on Vista and Mac: Different but equal

Beginning Bluetooth device setup in Vista and Mac OS X

Mitch Ratcliffe turns his examination of the user experiences with Windows Vista and Mac OS X to the increasingly prevalent Bluetooth networking technology and its implementation on the two systems.

One of the major differences between Vista and Mac OS X where you will find the command to start the process of setting up a Bluetooth device. The Vista Add Device command is in the Bluetooth Control Panel whereas you can begin the process from the Desktop on the Mac by clicking the Bluetooth icon in the toolbar.

Vista handles audio Bluetooth devices, such as headsets in a separate pane of the Bluetooth Control Panel.
