I had been reading some of my favorite blogs and saw that the second generation Jawbone Bluetooth headset had been released. I haven’t really been a fan of handsfree headsets. Using Skype more and more on my computers, it has quickly become only second to my iPhone. I’ve just been using the built-in mic and speaker on my computer, but I figured I should get a headset for better call quality. I had read a lot of good reviews of the original Jawbone and since they claimed the new one is better than the original, I figure I’d give it a shot.
I decided I needed to get an office telephone. My cell phone reception indoors was not as great as it should be. I don’t want to say it’s poor because I would consider no reception poor. I can make and receive calls but sometimes the calls would drop. I guess you could say the service was intermittent. It looked bad for me to my clients that calls would just drop. Most were understanding, but i felt like that was unacceptable. I was debating a normal land line telephone, but was interested in VOIP. Vonage had been hit by the media about their recent IPO and stock losses, but I figured it was a risk I could take in picking up the service.
