    Hi all,

    Does anyone know whether "any" USB bluetooth module will work with a Mac, or just the Apple sold D-Link ones? I've seen some very reasonable ones here in the UK manufactured by MSI and am thinking of getting 1 or 2 as a way of adding compatibility between my new Bluetooth phone and iMac and iBook...obviously, if I can pay £20 rather than £45 I'd be most happy, so just wanted to know what peoples thoughts are on this.

    Cheers

    Most adaptors seem to work fine. I picked up a Mitsumi one for £25 about 7 months ago and it works fine.
