Very occasional thoughts concentrating on the useful.

New technology addiction

I've gotten pretty addicted to my wireless bluetooth on-the-ear headset for my phone. It's hard to imagine that I'd ever want to regularly give up the use of a hand to talk on the phone again. (It's rechargible, BTW.)
I wouldn't get the same headset model if I had it to do over again, though. (I have the Motorola H500.) The audio input and output is great for home use, but the thing is a bit too flimsy to carry around all day. (It would be nice if it had a small secure case that fit on my belt.) I tried putting it in my computer case, but everytime I walked around the button would get pressed and it made my phone redial!
It also feels a little floppy and loose on my ear, so I don't like wearing it when I'm not making a call.
