bluetooth is a fucked up protocol and I hate it with all my heart

I am fully emotionally and physically prepared to beat the ass of anyone who is prioritizing bluetooth support over wired connections.

the guys who invented bluetooth were like "we should make a protocol that assumes that every person has an entirely separate set of headphones for every device, that also doesn't work as a mic if you're using it to listen at the same time."

@wgahnagl "Also let's name it after a Danish king for some reason."

@anarchiv dawg, this dude's whole lineage is ridiculous as shit
He was the son of King Gorm the Old and of Thyra Dannebod
his son Sweyn Forkbeard
this guy, 10/10 maybe I can forgive bluetooth a little

@wgahnagl Why spend one second plugging your headphones in when you could spend 10 minutes alternately turning both them and your phone's Bluetooth service on and off and repeatedly pushing the little sync button, only to have them finally connect to your neighbor's car instead?
