It can be valuable when you work with a projector in a room where the
computer does not lie in front of you. My supervisor does that. For anything
else Bluetooth/Wi-Fi peripherals are an overkill. Yet, I see them used on

intended, DFS as its a gross generalisation. I have come across people who
burn a CD to pass on a couple of photos.
