Default Techno Brat

I think I have offically reached "techno brat" status. Beginning of the year, I bought myself a long over due Dell laptop. This thing is gorgeous and sports, of course, my new favorite thing-bluetooth. Upon the unfortunate drowning accident of my beloved Motorola phone, I aquired (by trade of my hard earned cash...oy), a like new V710. This thing is now my little toy which I pretty much waste much of class time randomly pushing buttons on. Well, this lead me to having two bluetooth devices but having nothing in common, they don't really have much of a function together. So, today I purchased a Motorola bluetooth headset online (HS850)--earning, I think, my official status.

So yeah, random I know-just thought I'd share .

I know the feeling. Seeing how I spend so much time in my car for work, I started off by putting my CB back in it so I could be warned of hiding officers. I then replaced the deck with an aftermarket one that will also play WMA files. All the time having GPS hooked up to my old laptop while I drive. I then purchased a new laptop with bigger screen faster, etc.. much better for the GPS. On top of all that I now have Satellite radio in the car. Oh did I forget to mention I installed a car starter/alarm in that car, that I had from a previous car.


So anyone that comes in the car with me is kinda shocked at how much stuff I have going on in there. Gotta stay occupied while driving you know.

I was thinking brat was kinda of the girly version of geek. And anyone who knows me knows, as it is, I'm slightly snobbish about my gadgets.

I'll let you know what I think when I get it. This is the part I hate about online purchasing-waiting for the US Postal Service to do it'* thing. I'm hoping this one is a really good headset, I've read reviews both ways, the biggest complaint being lack of volume. So we'll see.
