Old school

I've spent about sixteen years in the wireless industry. As you can imagine, I've been through several evolutions of technology and related accessories during that time. I've always been pretty game to try the newest thing that came down the pike, but the one I can't seem to cozy up to just yet is the Bluetooth headset. Something about it just bugs me. Maybe it's the fact that it's very hard to tell when someone is on the phone. Maybe it's the look...just a little bit Jetsons. Or Star Trek. I'm not sure which. I've tried to adapt, believe me. I really have. And, I'll probably try again someday.

But today isn't that day.

So, when Oregon's new law came about this month, and everyone was snapping up their new wireless headsets and speakerphones, I went digging through my archives and found this.

I may be the only one sporting this little number, but at least you'll be able to tell I'm on the phone.


  1. I've decided to just not answer the phone while I'm driving. Too distracting for me, hands free or hands engaged!

  2. That's the best plan yet! There really are few things so urgent that they can't wait just a little while.

  3. Hey! The BlueAnt Supertooth Light Bluetooth Handsfree Speakerphone is for you!! (I just like saying that name). Actually, it works great. But I don't know why people aren't going back to those earplug/microphone things - we've all got them somewhere! Free, and they work.
