    Hi guys, I have two questions:

    1) Does peer - to - peer gaming requiere a bluetooth connection? I ask this cuz I remember reading from Apple: Play with your friend beside you or across the country. It said something like that. How will the two devices connect over bluetooth if they are miles away?

    2) Does Push Notifications require an internet connection? Say, if my ipod is in sleep mode it won't receive notifications because it's WiFi is temporarily turned off?

    Thanks in advance.

    Peer to Peer gaming utilizes Bluetooth, so I don't know where you heard the other thing.

    Push notifications requires an internet connection of some sort.

    *These are things that a quick, 10 second search can yield. (Please think about that next time

    Obviously they are referring to the internet when they say "across the country". Duh.

    that's why I had doubts cuz i was like 80% sure I had seen that it could be done across the country in the Apple page. Seems I hallucinated.

    Of course it can be done across the country, but not with bluetooth.
