I Like These Things

A few months ago, I saw the UPS man up at the courthouse wearing this thing. Even though those guys run a hundred miles an hour, he couldn't stop talking about it. It's a stereo bluetooth enabled headset. The UPS guy had a phone that served as an MP3 player which, of course, beamed the music to the headset.

I bought a pair since my phone does the same thing. Greatness. And it has some controls on the side which allows you to answer phone calls. I'll wear it in the car and around the house, but I'm not wearing it out in public.

At Amazon.

If you wore it backwards you would look just like that black guy on Star Trek.

Now they just need to make iPods with bluetooth. Dammit. I hope Steve Jobs isn't listening...

Why not wear it in public. Don't you want some middle-aged short guy with balding hair and a gray beard to question you about it. ;)

I love these new fangled gadgets as well, just picked up a cool Sony Walkman WM-D6C at Nells Nook. I wear it when I jog, but I can't seem to get the Bryan Adams tape to eject....so after my first hour of jogging I usually flip it over to the Eagle 97.1 KEGL.

All Bluetooth headsets or earpieces, no matter where or when they are worn are douchebag badges.

think frustrated, there are Bluetooth adapters for iPods. And the iPod touch has Bluetooth, it just isn't activated.

How come 30 seconds after I went to that link and looked at that techno-crap, Amazon sent me an email about a cheap iPhone - ($200 off or something)? Are you making anything off Amazon, B? Apparently you are, or you should be. I didn't buy one tho - I prefer the Princess Leia look myself. Your new thingy reminds me of the one the blind black guy on Star Trek wears, only yours is backwards.

Ooops! I forgot to turn my cookies off the other day.

I thought I had lost my mind one day when I was in Wise County quite a few years ago (I think about 1992 or so). (Actually I probably had lost my mind, seeing as how I was IN Wise County). I saw this guy pacing around, apparently talking to himself.

It was at a Title Company. He was getting quite irritated, and gesturing all over the place.

I asked the sweet little old ladies what was wrong with him, and one said "Oh, he's Jewish". I kinda followed him around a little bit and discovered he was talking to someone on his cell phone, using a wired headset he had snaked up his shirt.

I'm thinking that's probably when all those fancy McMansion developments started being built around Decatur. You know, after they started cropping up farther west from Trophy Club.

The Devil,
I am still trying to figure out why you would go to Nells Nook to buy a Sony Walkman..?? Much less 97.1 the Eagle, which has been off of the air since a couple of years ago..

Now that was funny!

BSG said...

Nope. Not making any money from Amazon. And, although I'm no expert, I think it's impossible for a person to visit a web site and then have the site "discover" your email address and then send you an email.

But I could be wrong.

4:39 here, B. I guess it's because I'm an avid user of Amazon.....I get some funny things after visiting BON's site - even on the side bars that advertise things I might like to buy. Yep.......it can and does happen. You should be afraid - very afraid.

Those fantasy-football-playing Sodomizers better be careful who and where they buy their stuff from (if it's over the internet) is all I can say. And remind them not to use a county credit card.
