My Bluetooth Headset Reference

Because of California's lovely little law taking effect on July 1, 2008, it'll be a crime to talk on a phone while driving, without a hands-free set. I personally strongly disagree with this law, because frankly not everyone who gets on a cellphone while driving is doing so erratically. I wouldn't object to a law mandating that being on a cellphone in the fast lane should be a crime, but talking on a cellphone while stuck in stop-and-go traffic, or when driving at 2am with no one else on the road? Please.

Nevertheless, I make an effort not to leave the house without a bluetooth headset anymore. It's become yet another irritating thing I must carry with me in order to function as expected in modern society.

Jabra BT150

One of the first bluetooth headsets I acquired was the Jabra BT150. Frankly, it sucks. It's got a little charger that wants to be USB but isn't, and the pairing method isn't anything approaching normal. That having been said, I can find it because I don't use it if I can avoid it, so it's my primary backup headset. For reference, you pair the BT150 by holding down the power button (the silver bit where the blue light flashes) until it turns on. Then, while it's on, you press the power button and the volume up button (the + key) at the same time, and thus place it into discoverable mode. The blue light turns on solidly, and life is good.
