RantGrrr @ Bluetooth and BLE Pin

Why not a compact, reliable, and easy to use radio protocol? Is that too much to ask?

Even BLE is just laden with UUIDs and various services and "characteristics" you have to "publish" just to read and write some data. I understand having to advertise, but they make it ridiculous.

And the power consumption and speed leave something to be desired even where BLE is concerned.

If that weren't enough, every single API i've been forced to work with to support bluetooth on every platform I've tried has been either murderous to use, and half documented, or rickety as heck, or both.

Why is this so difficult? And why in the heck Microsoft, did you make it so you have to thunk through to the Windows RT layer or whatever to get access to bluetooth? It's just nonsense. All of it.

*headdesk*

None of this had to be this way. Where did we go wrong?
