When was the last time you have used Bluetooth on a PC? Almost never. Bluetooth was intended for devices to connect together wirelessly. Through Bluetooth, devices can send files and control other devices remotely. On PCs wireless devices like mice and keyboards come with their own dongles and doesn't require additional hardware. Don't want multiple dongles? No, problem. New Logitech devices come with Logitech Unifying dongle that allow multiple devices to share the same dongle. Furthermore, this blog post mentions that Bluetooth devices have a serious lag to them and may not work properly with PCs.
But that doesn't mean that Bluetooth is useless. It found its niche in mobile devices. It lets headphones and car sets to connect to the device and on most non smart phones and Android and Symbian phones files can be transfered over Bluetooth.
All in all, Bluetooth is a pretty niche technology that have usefulness only among the mobile devices.
