Windows 7: Latest Bluetooth headsets, Win 7 incompatible. Discoverable, then nada

Latest Bluetooth headsets, Win 7 incompatible. Discoverable, then nada

I always thought of Bluetooth as such a simple act of connecting as speaker wire is to a speaker, when your friends thought "Aren't you afraid of electrocution?"

Well at the moment, I would welcome a good life ending jolt, just to complain to my maker that Windows and Bluetooth are not working as "A TEAM"

I recently obtained a pair of headphones that work great as a hands free solution to driving while listening to music and then taking a call, all controlled by a few buttons on the right earpiece. Unfortunately you have to leave one ear off when passing a cop, otherwise it looks like you have your parents headphones hooked up to a boombox, and you will get pulled over.

So I thought, well they have such great fidelity for the price, like getting Bose for $20 American, I'll just pair it with my Sony Vaio Win 7 64 laptop, barely 2 yrs old.

Well it can pair with the laptop, bur the fun ends there. All the wonderful troubleshooting devices on Windows 7 (that you know have a 1% chance of solving the issue) can't seem to connect. Finally, when Windows gives up, it directs you to Broadcomm or whomever lay claim to the ******* child known as Bluetooth.

Yes I tried all the driver suggestions.

You know what the big Broadcomm fix for Windows 7 does? - Stops after you've downloaded it, and start installing it, saying "an OLD version of Bluetooth has been found, you must remove it before attempting to install this update"

I guess someone forgot bundling. That old Bluetooth crap is more attatched to your device than the dead skin, and ashes, and crumbs of illicit substances found in keyboards of even the squeakiest clean users. (Internet users of course)

So, any of you hotshots got a clue?

It's a BT M18 also found as BTH-M18.

Apparently, I'm not alone. So let's ripoff bluetooth! Come on, any of you internet/computer savvy geeks, with an entrepreneurial spirit, want to make our own wireless system? That are "compatible" with bluetooth? - Give it another name, preferably not a reference to a color, like that of some berry or a rotten tooth. Whyerlessound® There you go.
Compatible with all bluetooth and wifi devices. No more searching for drivers on unfriendly corporate sites, no more "You ain't buying? Move along!" feeling from the Government Media Telecom Complex. We need a stealth fight back attitude here. Where's the fighting spirit? Is it all the Soy milk, and gender neutrality brainwashing our boys, and lowering their testosterone, while raising their estrogen?? Anybody???
