Best Bluetooth Headset?

I have no idea, but definitely one of the most innovative I've seen in a while. I just hope it works properly.

Maybe we should pair it with the thinnest watch phone for the perfect mobile solution? (free the pockets, free the world..... or something).

Foot Pump Power

Orange have released a camping friendly phone charger as part of their sponsorship of Glastonbury. Given the rain that normally accompanies the event, and the general lack of sunshine to power solar charges over there, this could be a life saver for the weekend long festival. In fact, it might just be a good idea in general - lots of exercise if you want to gossip away on your phone for hours on end....

Bluetooth Bracelet

If you really can't be bothered to reach into your pocket to see who's calling, this bluetooth bracelet with caller-id might be just the ticket for you. And it's only $25 - seems a bit of a bargain to me.....

Obama get his new job next week

I'm wondering if he's having second thoughts already? After constantly using his BlackBerry during his presidential run, now that he won, the scary secret people are going to take it away. It'll have to be replaced with something NSA approved, which means probably one of the two dogs of a phone above are what he's likely going to have to try to fit in his pocket.

On a similar note, we've gone an informal (but definitely always considered) rule about email in the office. If we ever get approached by a company looking to acquire us, and they're going to force us to use Lotus Notes, the deals off. No questions asked, no debate, no further negotiations - it's just off. Best idea we ever had (well, not really, but I like it a lot).

Handsfree For Tonks?

Following yesterdays debarcle of iPhone proportions, and his inherent hatred for bluetooth headsets, maybe this is the perfect solution for Tonks?

I'm sure we've all been in them - the meetings you really want/need to get out of, but just can't find the right moment. Or the blind date where you need an escape option really really early? Welcome to Fake Calls for the iPhone - you cane even pretend Mr Jobs is calling you directly to offer you that perfect R&D job you've always dreamed of.

Mercedes iPhone Dock

Confession time - I put in my order for a new 3G iPhone yesterday, so only a month or so to go before I get my hands on (please, please let the exchange synching work like a dream). Obviously, Mercedes were thinking about me when they announced this little toy yesterday - the iPhone dock. It charges your phone, hooks it into the phone system in the car, and allows you to get at your music from the hifi. Now all I have to do is work out two things - can they retrofit it to existing cars, and can the wife survive without the CD space....

Jawbone II - The Return

My favorite Bluetooth headset (actually, I've only ever owned 2) just got updated this week. The Jawbone II is smaller and lighter than the original, and still packs all that top secret electronic wizardry to prevent noise that shouldn't be in your speech (like the 40 mile an hour wind as you walk from the airport to the rental car office) from being there.

It's been initially released in black (like the pic here) and apparently silver and gold (!?) are coming soon. The only downside to the smaller size is that the talk time has gone down from a supposed 6 hours, to just 4, although standby time has been increased. I have a feeling that the first gen never actually got to 6 hours, so maybe they're just re-rating to a more realistic number, but what would I know.

Blood Powered Tattoo/Phone Thing?

Cool but very scary concept. I'm guessing JB is already in the queue to get one, so he can realize his dream of the perfect gadget.

New Sony Ericsson Phone

It even almost got named after our company (close enough if you've been drinking all day anyway). Lots of text details here, but just the briefest preview in video. It'll make you want one (maybe)

Modular Phone - The Answer to all of our Prayers?

Sometimes phone carriers in the US just don't get what people really need (or they do, but they want some extra cash so ignore people) - a phone that works is obviously the number one thing, and then for me personally, I want to be able to have a couple of different phones for different things. Completely lost without email access on the road, I couldn't give up the full keyboard BlackJack II I now carry around, but when it comes to the weekend, and going out on the lash, I really would just like a little phone that slips inconspicuously in my pocket. I used to have a setup like that, with a Sony Ericsson Walkman phone for the weekends, but that gave up the ghost when I was back in England for Christmas.

So, the fact that a company is bringing out a modular phone (called modu), with a core piece nice and tiny that makes the calls, and then being able to bolt on different bits as needed, sounds pretty cool. Normally you'd just blow something off like this, but the guy who runs this company invented the usb memory stick, and sold his last company for almost $2 billion - which means he's probably quite smart, and has lots of money. So, here's hoping - DVICE sum up all the reviews so far if you want to check it out.
