Robert McLaws: Windows Edition

Blogging about Windows since before Vista became a bad word

WindowsNow in PC Magazine (Again)

I just got my copy of the January 2007 edition of PC Magazine, which is dedicated to the Vista launch. Although the gaming console rundown on pages 40-41 have some pretty glaring errors (the 360 doesn't do HDMI, the 360's WiFi is A/G, and the Wii controller uses Bluetooth, not infared... among the most glaring), there is no mistaking that we're one of their Top 5 Vista Resources (page 88).

Thanks PCMag for once again showing us some love.

    But the Wii Remote does use Bluetooth, doesn't it?

    Perhaps the writers were confused about the Wii controller.  It does in fact use Bluetooth for communication.  However, it uses infrared emitters as the method of allowing the control.


    The sensor bar is just an infrared emitter.

    The controller communicates with the console with buetooth, but it uses a IR camera to see what the heck it is looking at.
