I was in the local convience store the other day trying to figure out why a man would attach a cell phone to his belt when I saw a man with two cell phones on his belt. Have the geeks taken over, and that blue tooth thingy is just giving up all dignity, and self respect. I have no question here other than the statement that there are a lot of shameless jerks at the convience store near my house in the morning.

I was in Woolworths when a gentleman was showing off his superiority and importance by barking orders to the manager of one of his businesses very loudly.

Every so often he glanced round to check everyone in earshot was suitably impressed by comments like 'I have a manager in each of my 6 businesses yet I spend my day having to run those businesses myself. Just do things how I would - you know that never fails.'

The conversation finished when the phone rang while he was in mid sentence.

In California, come July, cell phone users will be required to use a bluetooth (or other hands-free device) if they want to talk on the phone while driving.

I don't care either way, but I'm sure we'll soon be seeing more people wearing a bluetooth in each ear. Hey, you too can have a conference call between your ears!

Doubt it!

That law is in effect here but yet, there are still TONS of people driving holding a phone to their head!


But Al, Belts!?

I got a super belt; It holds my two cell phones, garage door opener, TV remote controll, iPod, GPS system and my Swiss Army knife!

hey now...

Our government collects a fortune from people caught talking on their handhelds while driving but apparently studies show the distraction is just as dangerous with hands free.

I haven't been caught yet so the eyesight requirements for our traffic police must be quite low.

Justin's right- the utility belt's the only way to go.

At least until we get "Deus Ex"-style multi-tools.

Al,

Submit to technology. You will be assimilated. Resistance is futile.

Although, I kinda agree on this point, two phones are a bit much...

I have 3 - 1 private and 2 business but I never let anyone see I have more than 1 - not good at home when all 3 and the landline decide to ring at once.

I don't have one. I had one for about 7 years, it sat at home on the charger all the time.

When those blue tooth thingies go off does your head start vibrating?

I have a cell phone but only my sweety, my daughter, and several agents have my number.

Anyone remeber the math and engineer nerds with their slide rules (OK, so I had/have one too)?
the blue tooth ear phone thingys kind of remind me of "7 of 9" on Star Trek (although it did look good on her).

Here in New Jersey, they just recently passed a law prohibiting driving while talking on a hand held cell phone. Too much of a distraction but not many people follow the law. There aren't enough cops on the road to stop everyone.

Strange law though. You can't use a hand held cell phone but it's ok for a woman to apply makeup and a man to shave. It's also ok to read something while driving.

I passed a car the other day and the driver was applying makeup with one hand and had a cigarette in the other. No hands on the wheel and this was on the highway. That seems to ok.

Back on topic, cells phones on a belt are common here. Most guys don't like to cary them in their pockets and the belt is convenient.

I did have three cell phones...one personal with my Little Rock number, one personal with my Memphis number, and one business. I loaned by personal-Memphis phone to my sister, and she lost it (fortunately it was a pay as you go phone so when whoever got it ran out the minutes, all I was out was twenty bucks for the phone). Business phone I had to turn back in when it was determined that I didn't fit in with the company. So, now I'm down to just my Little Rock line. I have a bluetooth thingy, but I think I'm unusual in how I use it. I don't affix it to my ear and leave it there. I turn it on, and when it rings, I'll attach it and answer. I usually put my phone in my pocket...which can prove interesting when I forget it's in my pocket and I'm in the car and it rings!
The only stupid question is the one not asked.

You are just a slave to technology. Justin carries a TV remote, ipod, garage door opener, and a GPS on his belt, he is my hero.

I'm not sure if it is legal to drive and talk on your cell ph in Nevada I thought there was a law against it, but just this past week I had seen an on duty Las Vegas police officer on her cell phone while driving. It was obvious that the call was not duty related as well. Just proves that some police officers are not very good drivers at all either. Nor do some have any type of working brain matter.

Actually it's not. I think it's considerned "driving to endanger" although why that doesn't fit in with cell phones so they need a special law is beyond me.

I had a cell phone belt holder once. My cell phone slipped out of it and I never saw it again.

Actually, the CA law is weird in that it doesn't allow you to talk on a hand-held cell phone- but you can text-message to your heart's desire!

Seriously!

Why aren't there also laws against talking to the passengers in your car?
