Bluetooth headset is a great invention and like some other gadgets it has a specific usage. Bluetooth headset is very useful when one’s both hands are engaged. For example, while driving, fixing a car while getting instructions from a friend, or when a new father is calling his wife to get instructions on how to change their newly baby born diaper. This makes sense to use a Bluetooth headset but when a man uses his Bluetooth headset while he is in a coffee shop or walking in street, with both hands in pockets, this is stupid. Why in the world anyone wants to be caught talking to himself?
Last year, a friend of mine bragged about his new over $700 Nokia N (add a fancy number) cell phone. $700 is even more expensive than a good new laptop! This Nokia phone has a GPS and internet beside the redundant huge memory to save stupid ringtones and video clips. Anyway, one time while travelling out of town we lost our way. So, I asked my friend to check the address from his phone, which is embedded with a GPS. It turned out that we neither could use the GPS nor the internet because it is a paid service which he didn’t pay for. My question is why buy an insanely expensive phone if all what you want to do with it is make phone calls?
