If a game could only have one of them, which would you pick?

We use bluetooth to play games here at work during lunch, while waiting for meetings to start, etc.

Favorites include Flight Control and F.A.S.T.

Sometimes we crowd around one device and play SlotZ Racer...

Wifi. Not always someone locally to play, but almost always someone worldwide.

Check out my blog for some technical details on both:


To summarize:
Bluetooth is nice for it's ad-hoc capabilities, but if you want reliability, throughput and more than 3 clients there is no way around WiFi :-(

WiFi, but even if I had the OS 3.0 update it'd be the same.
