This paper introduces the origins and characteristics of Bluetooth and Wi-Fi (IEEE 802.11b), and mitigates some of the confusion surrounding them. In the following pages, we will hold these technologies up side by side, in order to better compare and discuss them. We will show how they can complement one another and improve the lives of consumers, as well as benefit corporations by enabling a workforce to stay connected, informed, and thus more productive. By explaining each technology and deconstructing the debate surrounding them, Socket hopes to illustrate how Bluetooth and Wi-Fi can be used to enhance your productivity and lifestyle.
