Atheros pushes Bluetooth as PC PAN

Hey, maybe this whole Bluetooth thing really will work out. I have been having my doubts.

But today Atheros announced plans for a Bluetooth part customized for PCs. I know Dell has been a big backer of Bluetooth. But there's plenty of competition for who will be the personal area network of choice from Bluetooth, WiNet and a host of proprietary links such as STS.

Atheros' backing for Bluetooth makes me think this technology may really become the PAN of choice. But I keep scratching my head wondering why we don't see a wireless iPod…anybody got an answer for that one?
