Are all bluetooth adapters created equal in the sight of God? Or are there better and worse bluetooth adapters? All I want is a thing which'll plug into a USB port and send and receive bluetooth.

A brief search of the net would seem to suggest that such a device is called a 'dongle'. I shouldn't be filled with loathing and hatred by that. It should be a matter of the utmost inconsequence to me. Yet I can't but find such a revoltingly cutesie neologism sickening beyond belief.

Given that I work but yards from the TCR, that presumably would be the place to obtain one. I'm not sure I wouldn't prefer to buy one over the net, though, if only to avoid having to use the word 'dongle' in conversation. I begin to understand some of the enormous benefits that potential purchasers of, say, hardcore pornography must see in commerce conducted by means so joyfully free of interaction with humans. Humans whose eyes one must meet whilst saying 'I'd like a dongle, if you have one, please.'
