    People like D-link make bluetooth adapters that plug into a USB port that are tiny and cheap, if you wanted to add bluetooth functionality to one of your macs. I do that for my old iBook, I think it was $20, and that was years ago. I bet you can find them for free with rebates these days.

    i believe that only the 8100 has been sucessfully used as a modem on a Mac
    i'm still waiting for someone to come up with a solution for the 8700c
    good luck!
    you can easily get a Bluetooth USB dongle
    they are like 25 bucks on TigerDirect of Buy.com
