I'm in full agreement. As annoying as Apple can be sometimes, their products (particularly their consumer products) are wildly popular, and not supporting the most popular of those is really pretty foolish. Heck, the RER came with an iPod cable- unlike the 430N, you can't use some other media player (like a Zune) with its USB cable, you are stuck with an iPod. So they recognize and wed you to an Apple product for a media player (if you don't like the incredibly moronic way the internal HD handles files), but don't spend the little time it takes to make the Bluetooth work.
IMO, Apple shouldn't be let off the hook here, but let's face it- they aren't going to change the way they do things. It's up to everybody else to keep up with Steve Jobs and his tendency to laugh maniacally in his mountain fortress while shouting "Standards? I'll show them STANDARDS! I'll show them all! BWAHAHAHAHA!!!"
