Hands Free Device


I have to admit, I owe Drew an apology. I always made fun of him for wearing this (what I previously thought to be a) dorky bluetooth attachment in his ear. Oh, how I foolish I was. I know this now.

California has passed legislation that as of tomorrow, all cell phone calls while driving must be made using a hands free device. I bought one.

It's AWESOME. I love being able to talk without holding a phone. In fact, I always thought I didn't like talking on the phone. I've since realized that mostly I just don't like holding the phone. Talking is just fine. I love being able to just talk into the air as if I'm having a normal conversation. It's great.

Now I know, people with these attachments in their ears who just kind of talk into the air look crazy, like seriously insane... but I just don't care. That's how much I like this little thing.

I'm sorry Drew, you were right all along.

However, I still don't think people should just ALWAYS wear them--as if, even though they are talking to you, they are just hoping for a call so that they can stop talking to you...

If that is the case, it could be posted on thatsrude.com

I'm just saying.

I agree. I only wear it when I know I'm going to be on the phone.

See, I've gone past that. Now I have a combo stereo bluetooth headset / handsfree device. I can listen to my music that's stored on my phone, wirelessly. Then, when I get a call, the music pauses, and I press a button on my headphones, I take the call, then the music starts up again when I'm done the call.

When you get one of those, then you'll be as dorky as me. :)

drew you are always like 2 steps ahead of me in your technology geekdom.

I finally broke down and got a cellphone last month.

We don't even have a normal phone anymore, so we are forced into cell phone geekdom.

(You should get a hands free device, peaj!)

Whoa! You just back off with your new-fangled gee-whiz gizmos! They can lead to moral torpitude and couples dancing, let em tell you. Next you'll have us all pushing bits through the Intertubes on a Sunday, by gum.

If God had meant us to have so much technology, He'd have given us gift cards to Best Buy.

Oh no! God hates Best Buy... God buys stuff from Amazon.
