Two weeks ago, I was presented with a challenge:  can a bluetooth headset with a significant API be programmed to work with the Telerik ASP.Net AJAX controls?  The headset in question, a Plantronics Legend UC is a fine headset. With a desire in my mind to address any challenge to the capabilities of our controls, I accepted the challenge and began working with the hardware.

The result of my efforts was documented and posted to CodeProject.  On that site, you can read about how I enabled the headset to effect a "clock-in" and "clock-out" action with a timeclock service.  Coupled with our Notification control, I built a really neat interaction between hardware and software using WebAPI, JavaScript, and a bit of c#. 

I encourage you to check out the article at CodeProject.  

If you attend our AJAX webinar on Tuesday, this is the headset that I will be using to give my presentation.  I encourage you to register, there are giveaways planned and you get to hear me give my FIRST Telerik webinar.
