FIRST THINGS FIRST
Music, for this hack i listened to an iTunes Genius playlist based on Evil by Interpol. Including CSS, The Bravery, Modest Mouse, Yo La Tengo, Menomena, MGMT, Franz Ferdinand and Death Cab.
it was beautiful.
In order to do this, I of course needed a bluetooth dongle! (I love saying dongle. dongle dongle dongle!) After shopping, I pulled out the trusty credit card (lifesaver of the unemployed) and purchased this mighty little dongle.http://www.meritline.com/premiertek-usb-bluetooth-wireless-dongle-adapter-w-antenna.html
it even has an external antenna! great for hacking into a better one.
upon receiving my package in the mail, and pulling out the usual junk (except the nifty USB extension cable! SWEET! a female USB plug for my next project!) I came to the mighty dongle of justice. the first thing i noticed was the case was already coming apart... so i finished the job and oh my! discovered that it has no external antenna. just a faux one.
so after some googling. found this
this fancy instructable, on adding an external antenna.
