    Hi Andy, great article. A couple questions:

    - Can it handle detection of multiple blue-tooth devices at a time?

    - Does the 2.4GHz antenna screw with your existing 802.11 a/b/g WiFi network?

    Hi Andy,

    Great work!

    In Chicago Marathon, last Sunday, contestants wore a chip on the shoe lace for race information transmittal. Were they using Bluetooth.

    Thanks for info.

    Regards.

    The device discovery of C4F devkit bluetooth  has a virtual memory (VM) leak. Just watch what happens to the VM each time you search for devices.

    Nice Work.

    If there's one thing I'd suggest it would be to add a way to execute commands when the watched device disappears

    @John, did you do a small scale test of this, is it just BlueBoss or the actual kit?

    Is there a method to DiscoverDevice(), not Devices() at a very quick rate.  For instance, I would like to return simply the address as soon as it appears then call the method again.  I would like to scan the cars as they drive by my house.

    check out the http://www.codeplex.com/C4FDevKit which Andy used to do this.  An API in there may do what you want.  I don't know if bluetooth itself will do what you're asking however.

    Hello, I'm working on a project that requires me to extend the range of an USB dongle as much as possible. Have you any data on how much does a panel antenna like yours extend the signal?

    Thanks!

    @Jirshiri, the code is in c#.  We don't have a VB.net port but what you can do is use Telerik code converter to switch the code over.  http://converter.telerik.com/
