Last Tuesday in the gadget section at the back of the Australian IT  
section they had 2 pairs of bluetooth headphones.  They had a small  
bluetooth dongle you could plug into your TV and you could pair the  
headphones with your phone and laptop as well at the same time.  If  
it could be done with headphones it could be done with a bluetooth  
sound card.  Is there such a thing?  I just got a USB sound card  
recently.  It's like a USB headset but has jacks to plug in your own
