Short info

Avoid a ticket in California by using the headset like the Plantronics Discovery 925.

Detailed information

With effect from 1 July 2008, California and Washington will be among the many states which prohibit using your cellphone with your hands while driving.  One could of course still use a wired hands-free, but the Plantronics Discovery 925 will come in handy.  Super light-weight, it weighs in at 0.3 ounces only.  It comes in a carrying case, with a built-in rechargeable battery which recharges the device when you slot it into the case.

The package also comes with a USB charger and an AC charger, which you can connect to either the charging jack on the earpiece itself to recharge the device directly, or connect to the charging case to recharge the case.  3 earclips come as part of the packaged contents.

Plantronics' AudioIQ gives you noise cancellation, its multipoint technology allows you to pair up with up to 2 devices at the same time, and a single charge gives you 5 hours of talk time.  Leo thinks this is better than the Aliph Jawbone or the BlueAnt Supertooth Light (Episode 362) and feels very comfortable.  A worthy replacement of the Voyager 510 (Episode 252, which Leo lost while kayaking) or the Discovery 655 (Episode 173).

An Epitaph for Leo

Martin O' Connor from Galway, Ireland, who registered the url www.gadgetising.com (which has now lapsed) for Dick in Epsiode 148, suggests the following epitaph for Leo's tombstone, which Dick and Leo discussed in Episode 589 (while talking about the name for Leo's autobiography):  "Another TWiT, is in the can."


Leo uses the URL twitlive.tv for TWiTLive.  A listener has registered twitlive.com and he is transferring the registration to Leo, which will take a little time to come through.

Thursday Theme?

Mike Wills of Podcastmike.com has done a Thursday theme for no-theme Thursday.  Maybe not, says Leo Cowell.
