    I get my first mac tomorrow and with it I am getting a magic trackpad.
    When viewing youtube videos of the trackpad I saw how you connect them via bluetooth. In the video i saw that the person had their iphone connected via bluetooth to their mac too.

    This got me thinking - what are the benifits of doing this?
    What am i able to do that i can't through itunes?

    I genuinely don't know what benifits being able to connect the two machines via bluetooth gives. Can someone elaborate?

    Thanks!

    There isn't much advantage. Bluetooth is just a battery drainer IMO.

    He could be tethering his iPhone's 3G to the Mac.
