    Does it strike anyone else as bizarre that the Devices charm in 8.1 doesn't show Bluetooth devices or USB devices?

    I hardly think about it since i never use whats there.
    But now that you mention it, that charm could sure use some sprucing up.

    but then again, maybe its meant for showing content relevant peripheral features as opposed to everything attached at a given time?

    Seems like its intended to be a hub for sending things from your device to another device. Obviously the main vision is an analog to PlayTo where you're sending your screen to a compatible device, but they then include "sending" content to a printer and "sending" your desktop to a projector. "Sending" audio to a BT device seems like a fair comparison.

    Of course all of this is only useful within metro apps, which is a head scratcher.

    Personally I wouldn't be surprised to either see charms dumped entirely in Win9 or completely overhauled. Seems like a dud.
