I’m writing this posting in the Hartford airport waiting for my connection. Lots of people using wired headsets for their phones. Silly people, don’t they know the future is now?

Product Review – Motorola Bluetooth Headset


hey, it's even on sale!

Overall
Function - 8

The Breakdown
Function

Speaker – 9
In ear quality is quite good
Microphone – 8
You have to talk a little loudly to have people hear you, picks up ambient noise as with all headsets

Works one room over, I can’t ask anything more

Nothing makes you look like an international jewel thief, secret agent or high powered CEO (or cutting edge tech nerd) than wireless.

- Target brings design home -

My roommate and I have been discussing how the world is becoming increasingly homogenized.

Q: What’s it like living in Florida?
A: A lot like Ohio, we have Chili’s, Lowe’s, Wal-Mart, Chotchkees, Flingers, Best Buy

And Target. Who says design has to be expensive or hard to find? As I was walking down the isles of my local target, take a look at what they sell now:

Wow, I know I’m a sucker for bent plywood, but these pieces look great.

Clearly, it’s a Poang chair, and a Buskbo style table, but the prices are reasonable and there’s a Target in your back yard.

I have a post coming out about the store Target and the interesting design furniture I found there. The post was written on lay-overs while traveling this past weekend. I would have posted it, but I have yet to find free internet at an airport.

Signal Strength:
Orlando: 0
Hartford: 0
Columbus: 0
Cincinnati: $5.00

If everyone had Bluetooth phones, and published blogs on them, we'd all have free material to read everywhere!
