Resistance Is Futile

I've never been a big fan of bluetooth earpieces.
You know, the little pieces of plastic that people put in their ears so that they can walk around Wal-mart talking on their phone without spending the energy it would take to hold the phone in their hand. Usually when I see those people, I first hear them talking to themselves and I become concerned that they might need a visit from "those nice young men in their clean white coats" ((They're coming to take me away! Ha! Ha!))But then I see their earpiece and I realize that they are on the phone. Second, once I see the device in their ear, I'm reminded of "The Borg" on Star Trek. Once we start adding electronic devices that light up on our faces, we're only a few technological steps away from becoming part robot.

I started this by saying I'm not a big fan. I think before I go any further, I should probably admit that I do own one of those little annoying gadgets. But I've only used it a handful of times. But only in the car, and only when I was by myself. Plus I got it real cheap. Ok, that having been said, I'd like to tell you about my new toy.

For Father's Day this year I got some nice cards from my wife and kids and a little cash to play with. I had heard from Chris that with the new iPhone software update that I could now use wireless headphones to listen to it in stereo. I decided to look into that a little more. I wanted to find something that could be used both for the ipod and the phone and that would be rugged enough that I would not have to worry if I dropped it while on the treadmill or chasing kids around the house. So that led me to the Motorola S9-HD headphones. They don't exactly make me look cool, but I figure they don't make me look like a Borg either. And they're definitely better than driving down the road with wired ipod earbuds in my ears.

So If you're driving down the road and you see this handsome devil in the car next to you....

do two things...
1.) Give me a call. so I can say hello to you from my new toy.
2.) Get far away quickly before you get caught in the gravity of that massive face.
Wow that's a big face.


  1. "You will get brain cancer and be sterile" LOL! Nice....if....when I get a job I will have to get much?

  2. I first found them at Best Buy for $99. But that was more than I willing to spend. Then I found them online at for $59 plus shipping. Still a little pricey, but so far I haven't regretted it. They work great.

  3. I really want this gadget.

    I also want the rest of the head gear to go with it so I can use it as a costume at the Fall Festival.
