Mobile Phones March 25th, 2002 @ 6:04 pm PST
I don’t know if I’m ever going to get used to “hands-free” kits for mobile phones. I was inadvertantly fooled by a man speaking into his “hands-free” kit this afternoon. This was probably the thirtieth time this has happened o me. I was strolling through the Century City Mall when I found myself walking towards […]

A recent survey of 6,000 people by recruitment company TMP Worldwide found that irritating mobile phone rings are the top workplace nuisance, followed by malfunctioning equipment such as photocopiers, fax machines and printers. I recently finished my first stint as a contract programmer. (Although I was employed for a few months in 2000 on a […]

And when my call was done, I unwrapped […]
Mobile Phone PDA combination November 2nd, 2000 @ 6:07 pm PST
Baby! It really doesn’t get much cooler than this! My Visor and my cell phone combined?! Awesome! The only drawback is that my Visor is much larger than my phone. What I really want is a Visor/phone combo that’s only as big as my phone. With a camera. That plays video games. And unlocks my […]
