I’ve been having trouble with Bluetooth on Apple devices for the past few days, and today as I was working with my iPad in some new ways, the situatin got worse.
I have had my Mini lose connection to the mouse at random and frequent intervals. I’ve replaced the battery, rebooted the system, reconnected the mouse. Nothing helps. Every time the Mini reboots, it says it can’t even find a Bluetooth device, then it finds the device and attempts a pairing, then it says it can’t find one again. This goes on until I restart the machine. Ridiculous.
Using an Apple wireless keyboard with the iPad, I had the iPad not only forget it had a keyoard attached via Bluetooth a couple of times, it couldn’t even “see” the keyboard a couople of times until I turned Blueetooth off and back on.
So I wonder do I just have bad luck or is it true, as several of my *nix buddies have told me repeatedly, that Apple’s implementation of Bluetooth just sucks?
