Handoff feature still incompatible with older Macs, even with Bluetooth LE adapters

Handoff feature still incompatible with older Macs, even with Bluetooth LE adapters

Earlier in June, Apple unveiled a treasure trove of new features for not only iOS 8, but also for their Mac lineup, all bundled together in Mac OS X Yosemite. Depending on the person, though, some of the individual features may be worth most of the fuss, including things like Continuity, or Handoff. With the latter, users of iOS 8-based devices will be able to start an email on their mobile gadget, and then continue right from where they left off on their Mac. It may not be limited to emails, but it looks more and more like there might be one very large limitation to Handoff right out of the gate.
