      I seem to remember that Luke Dubois got this working once. But it's not a tested (or, likely, supported) application of the serial object.

      Thanks for your reply Jeremy! You can now add me into the list of people who tried with success a bluetooth communication with [serial] !
      -I'm using the eb500 bluetooth card with a Basic Stamp 2. (http://www.parallax.com/detail.asp?product_id=30068)
      -Need the computer's bluetooth address to get a connection with the eb500. We can get it with the "ifconfig " command on the osX Terminal.
      -If "ifconfig" command don't give you the info, try a bluetooth connection with your computer and another computer. The other computer will find and show the address.
      -Need to create a RS-232 bluetooth serial port with the "bluetooth serial utility".
      That's it!
      Ho! And if you're using a Keyspan serial-to-USB interface for the BS2 programming, unplug it before starting MAX. Unless the eb500 won't connect.
      Works pretty well. More reliable than a RF antennas.
