I'd like to use a cheap, wireless bluetooth speaker close to where I use
my laptop and I would appreciate recommendations for a cheap USB
bluetooth adapter that would work.  I'm in the US.  The only somewhat
useful data I've come across so far was here:
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/HardwareSupportComponentsBluetoothUsbAdapters
however only one actual adapter is listed for Ubuntu 14.04 and it runs
like $50 US, way more than I care to spend!  Other adapters there work
fine for earlier versions, but that doesn't mean they'll work with
14.04.  Unfortunately, although some 1545's came with already built in
bluetooth cards, mine wasn't one so no go there.  Thanks in advance.
