MacMice Intros Bluetooth Danger Dongle
Friday, November 3, 2006
Posted By: Glenn

MacMice today released its new miniature Danger Dongle USB Bluetooth adapter. The Danger Dongle is a small white "stick-type" USB Bluetooth adapter that works with all Mac OS X or Windows XP computers, and provides state of the art connection speeds with its USB 2.0 and BT 2.0 + Enhanced Data Rate (EDR) connection protocols. As most of you know, many early model PPC-based Mac minis lacked Bluetooth connectivity. I thought this might be of interest to some of you PPC-Based Mac mini owners looking around for a solution. The Danger Dongle is priced at $30.

Can't see much use for bluetooth -- but if someone would make an inexpensive usb wireless adapter like the PC cards, so we could use wireless internet, I could take my old Mini into the wireless age.

Anyone?

Blazing-fast 54 Mbps Wireless Internet Access with Superior Range
Netgear's 54 Mbps Wireless USB 2.0 Adapter enables 54 Mbps wireless Internet access to either your desktop or notebook PC. New antenna technology delivers greater range so you can move extended distances without losing your connection. Setup is now made quick and easy with a new Smart Wizard™ Install Assistant. High-level WEP encryption shields your network from wireless eavesdroppers without sacrificing performance.

It may not be compatible with Macs, but the product certainly does exist.

Yes, like that one. But does anyone make one that will work with a PPC Mini? Has anyone tried one with their mini?

Thanks,

DMS
