I abhor anyone who wears bluetooth headsets. Do you really need to stay that connected? They are so silly looking.

However, with the imminent hands-free driving law coming into effect for Ontarions, choices are limited. It's either I get a bluetooth speaker system for my car, use my existing wired earphone/mic that came with the device, get a BT headset, or choice four - risk getting a $500 ticket for holding the phone to talk.

I chose option 3, surprisingly. I would use the wired mic/headphone, but it's inconvenient to carry it around, having to de-tangle it each time I get in the car. The winter cold will snap the wires if I leave it in the car.

Future Slop had a BT headset by Nokia on sale for $24.99. has a $10 mail-in rebate form.

Not bad, but Best Fry also price matches plus 10% of the difference. I drove over to purchase the device and got an additional $.80 off. Bonus!

A new beginning, or something like that

So, how long ago since I've updated this blog? Too long.

Lots have happened. I took a hiatus from looking through the camera for reasons I'm no longer sure.

Quite frankly, I've not had the time to pick up the camera to take any sort of pictures. I started burning out.

Well, I'm back. Maybe not camera-wise (personal life took a 180, and now I'm back in the high-tech sector.)

But I'll post here? Sure.

I've yet to upload a set of pictures from my Calgary trip, will do so, soon.
