USBGear Bluetooth Adapter
Wireless printing is valuable to laptop owners or anyone who needs access to a printer regardless of which computer they use at home. While printers with 802.11 or Bluetooth built-in are frequently expensive, adding the function to an existing printer is now possible through an adapter from USBGear. The Combo Bluetooth printer adapter converts almost any printer, including USB and parallel port models, to a Bluetooth wireless model that the computer can recognize using the original drivers. USBGear describes the adapter as a useful way of printing from a PDA or another handheld that may not have an easy way to connect to the printer directly. The connector works with Macs, Windows PCs, and any other Bluetooth-equipped system that supports Bluetooth printing. It ships today for $68.
