Default What is the differance between infrared and bluetooth?

I have a question which is fully not related to computer but it's partially does. I want to know what is the difference between a bluetooth device and a infrared device. I am having both in my mobile and on my PC. I recently bought a infrared device on comment from my friend but don't know about it so I want to know if they are inter-related to each other ?

Bluetooth is a lot faster and safier. And if you use infrared, you must have straight line from (for example) tv to remote controller. Bluetooth does not need it.

Well, as far as I know, infrared and bluetooth have a good advantage in a mobile phone.. But what is more advantage and have a good usage these days is the blutooth device because it can be easily plugged in a computer to be able to access anything you want in your phone..

Well suppose if you want to share a file between two mobile devices, if you use the bluetooth method, you can roam around within a particular distance but if you use infrared, you need to keep both the mobile device very close to each other or else you wont get the file transferred.

yeah obviously. you are correct. If you have noticed the newer versions of bluetooth can have more distances between the devices. The technology improves for the better.

like previously in mobile phones we had cdma only, then came gsm and now its 3g. it is improving.

i was told by someone that we can using bluetooth only if the two mobiles are in the range of 10 metres.so i think in the future this will also be made better.
