A very quick question.....

I was just reading a newspaper article about how digital media is causing the demise of in-car CD players. It said that people are using their Smartphones instead, together with in-car wifi (if only I had it!). Alternatively, they are apparently streaming media via bluethtooth.

I have an android phone, but do not understand them saying the bit about bluetooth (which I never use). I thought bluetooth was mainly for switching stuff from one phone to another, for example. How could you use it for in-car streaming of media? Am confused!

Bluetooth is a short range version of WiFi.  Basically let's you connect something without wires.  If your car radio does not have bluetooth capabilities you can add it at a cost of between $30 and $200*.  The simplest universal adapter is the FM adapter which just requires a clear channel on an FM radio.  (Wasn't one in the Miami area - too many radio stations.)  You tune your radio to the same channel pair up the adapter andy our android and tell your android (no doubt there's an app for that)  to send the music over bluetooth
