There, I've said it. I feel better already. I've been thinking along these lines for more than three years, but that's the first time I've made it public. I'm very rarely inclined to trash such major efforts, but the jury's back, and really has been for a while. Bluetooth is toast, finished, over. Stick a fork in it. It's done.
