Hands-Free Happy

We can multi-task like crazy at home and at work, but not when we're driving (although we admit to make-up application each morning on the way to the office -- our day job).

In addition to a weird carpal tunnel reaction of hand numbing, we just can't drive and chat on our cel. We hate that. We would rather go talkless than have to hold our cel. For awhile we had the Motorola HF820 Easy-Install Bluetooth Car Kit (seen below) and it seemed to work fine, but was very touchy -- sometimes it wouldn't turn off, sometimes it wouldn't turn on -- and we got a few complaints about the sound quality from callers.

Today, we're trying out our new device (seen above) and so far, so good, everything seems to be working according to plan. We'll keep you posted on the progress and the quality. Our CFO got a Blueant wireless bluetooth and it seems to have crapped out yesterday morning; he's only been using it for a couple of weeks at the most.
