| This is for beginners and very much by a beginner.
It's intended to get an intuitive overview for hobbyist needs. It may get you started, but to be able to do anything remotely clever, follow a proper course or read a good book.
Some basics and reference:
Volts, amps, energy, power · Ground · batteries · resistors · changing voltage · transistors · fuses · diodes · varistors · capacitors · inductors · transformers · baluns · amplifier notes · frequency generation · skin effect
And some more applied stuff:
Input and output pins · wired local IO wired local-ish IO · · · · Shorter-range wireless (IR, ISM RF, RFID) · bluetooth · 802.15 (including zigbee) · 802.11 (WiFi) · cell phone
Sensors: General sensor notes, voltage and current sensing ·
Knobs and dials ·
Pressure sensing ·
Temperature sensing ·
humidity sensing ·
Light sensing ·
Movement sensing ·
Capacitive sensing ·
Touch screen notes
Actuators: General actuator notes, circuit protection ·
Motors and servos ·
Some stuff I've messed with: Avrusb500v2 ·
Hilo GPRS ·
Thermal printer ·
device voltage and impedance, audio and otherwise ·
amps and speakers ·
basic audio hacks ·
digital audio ·
Less sorted: Common terms, useful basics, soldering ·
Arduino and AVR notes ·
ESP series notes ·
signal reflection ·
pulse modulation ·
electricity and humans ·
resource metering ·
Microcontroller and computer platforms ·

Bluetooth works in 2.4 - 2.4835 GHz, in 79 separate 1Mhz channels
Bluetooth continuously hops channels, to lessen the probaility of consistent interference with other devices and other protocols (in particular 2.4GHz WiFi).
Busy areas still have congestion problems, though.
- Bluetooth 1.1 and 1.2 versions is 1mbit in theory, ~700Kbit/s in practice
- Bluetooth 2.2 can reach ~1 to 3Mbit,
- Bluetooth 3 HS can do ~24mbit in theory, 3 plain is still ~3MBps
- Bluetooth 4 didn't really change speed(verify), but changed low power details
