YOu can send them if the other computer has bluetooth. Speed in my dorm from about 10 ft away is about 25-30kbps if I recall correctly

I send files to and from my powerbook g4 and my sony ericson t610 all the time. it s really awesome and unbelievably easy to do! i also networked 3 g5s using the bluetooth discoverable option. we can share files and so forth. its really easy and totally awesome. im a win user primarily but mac rocks! :flower:
