creating a bluetooth dongle...?

ive been waiting for my dongle i ordered from dealextreme.com for far to long and i am a very impatient man. ive set out to make a dongle, or try until it finally gets here. ive considered many options but its looking like this will be the most promising. my friend gave me a slightly damaged ipod touch (2nd gen?), which i found out has a broadcom bluetooth chip in it. i ripped up the ipod, found the chip, and the datasheet. ive messed with some circuitry before, but i am lost on this. im actually pretty novice with this sort of thing, but ive experimented and learned a lot on my own. i am eager to learn. my goal is to make this into a usb bluetooth adapter. i have all the ipod parts (may need some?), usb cables are abundant, and i have a soldering gun and i am able to use it. could someone please help guide me in the right direction? i am sorry if this doesnt belong here.. this is my first post here, but ive been enjoying the site for a while now. i am a big do it yourself kind of guy and will most definitely be uploading some of my ideas when i get around to it.

Lighting powered by an AC to 12V DC 4pin Molex adapter?

Hello  I'm making a gift out of a traffic light that I'm going to snazz up (paint red, replace lenses with stained glass, new lighting) And I'm going to use computer case lighting as I am familiar with it. As I don't want to use a psu just to power molex connectors I'm going to use this www.crazypc.com/products/7410.html AC to 12V DC 4pin Molex adapter I'm going to have a set up something like this; adapater-www.pctoys.com/840556088547.html molex on/off switch-www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx molex splitter-www.crazypc.com/products/neon_wire_red-8430R.html Red EL Neon Wire-www.crazypc.com/products/82520U.html LED Meteor UV lights-and another light of some kind maybe a liquid cold cathode www.crazypc.com/products/8230B.html I believe the adapter will be able to power this, however I'm not sure as I've never used one before so any input is greatly appreciated. I also need to know whether the on/off switch will be able to control the whole string? Thank you
