Bluetooth? Not nearly fast enough for reasonable inter-computer
connections; it's only a couple of hundred kbits per second. Wifi's at
54Mb/s now (although I've never actually achieved anything about
14Mb/s), and wired Ethernet is just starting to become 10Gb/s capable
(although 1Gb/s is a bit more easily achieved).
There is something to be said for wired Ethernet - it's a lot faster
than Wifi. But I agree with the main thrust of your argument - for
most people, Wifi is vastly better.
