Resistance is Futile.

Damnit. I've been assimilated. I finally broke down and got a Bluetooth earpiece for my phone. I've been spending so much time on my phone while driving with the new sales job that I decided I needed a hands-free piece to reduce the distraction while driving. I know I'm still running a risk, but it's kind of hard to make sales, place orders, and still have time to do everything I need to do without being on the phone while driving.

I wasn't planning on Bluetooth for two reasons. One, I thought they were fairly expensive. Two, I hate those jackasses that walk around in the grocery store/movie theater/office bathroom (not kidding on that one) using their Bluetooth just to try and look cool. I look cool all by myself, without any outside help. Stop laughing. All of you.

However, my boss and several other salespeople I know all recommended them highly. Then, when I arrived at Best Buy, this one was on sale for about $25.00. I think that's because it's blue and most people want black or silver, since the same model in black or silver was $50.00. Since I only plan to use this while driving, and don't care about appearance so much as function, I gladly paid half price for a blue one.

I hate to admit it, but I'm a pretty big fan of this little gadget. It works incredibly well, I barely notice I'm wearing it, and it's extremely user-friendly. It really does reduce the distraction of holding a phone while driving. Don't worry, though, you won't catch me crip-walking down the street flashing my Rolex and talking into my earpiece...yet.

Resistance is Futile.

JT out.

I never quite understood how the Bluetooth thingy catches the voice. It seems too far away from the mouth!
I have no idea, but it works so well I suspect some sort of witchcraft.
Same principle as your cell phone uses, just a lot lower power. What's your new "Borg" name?

(yes, I admit, when I first saw one of those things, MY thoughts went to that Star Trek episode, too)

See www.bluetooth.com for more details. It's pretty nifty.
Your new Borg name is 24PBR.
Bubba - I believe Blu has come up with tthe perfect Borg name.

Also, I still suspect small devils.
