But the bluetooth is either broken or deliberately disabled.

The latter, part of Apple's strategy is to take existing, open protocols add something proprietary to it and licence it. So, instead of DNLA (media streaming over the network) you get "AirPlay" and Bluetooth is only useful for connecting to Apple headphones. People don't mind paying a premium as long as stuff "just works" and that is something that Apple generally does get right.
