Bluetooth Personal Wine Management System...
Prize for most useful (?) Bluetooth gadget of the week must go to this little hoo-ha.

Ever felt you've just got so much wine you can't keep track of it all? No? You mean you dink it straight away? Well if you don't and you do happen to feel intimidated by the sheer volume of high-priced booze in your cellar / cupboard / box in the corner, then the Intelliscanner Wine Collector it just what you need. It provides a wireless solution via Bluetooth. By connecting to an Internet database of barcodes, the Intelliscanner will provide all the important information a wine buff might need, such as the name, region, winery, variety, type, age, and colour (although if you didn't already know that...) Perhaps the £160 it costs for the Bluetooth version would be better spent buying even more wine and all other information could be garnered by, oh say, drinking the stuff; although there is a wired compromise which costs a lot less at £100.
