New Rules  
1. Stop wearing a Bluetooth headset when you're not on the phone. You're just trying too hard to look cool. Besides, Bluetooth headsets are not even remotely new! They're only new to poor CDMA customers (Verizon and Sprint here in the states) because those carriers didn't want you to be able to transfer data without using their network (hint: so they can charge you!) Those on GSM networks have been enjoying Bluetooth headsets for years now, mainly because U.S. carriers can't really control anything because it's a worldwide standard. Seriously, if you're not talking or carrying around two babies and a bag full of groceries, you look like a fucking idiot. Not to mention, you're just needlessly running down the battery. This is like when AOL users were let out onto the net for the first time and went around saying, "Have you heard of this 'new' thing called email?" Oh. Dear. God. Stop.

2. STOP USING THE TERM "Web 2.0." It's idiotic. The web doesn't have huge upgrade points, and if it did, we'd probably be on Web 152.3. The web is constantly evolving over time, and you know it. "Web 2.0" is just overplayed businessspeak. STOP IT STOP IT STOP IT.

That's all... for now. Now someone get me a Coke—STAT.

---We now return you to your regular, boring life... already in progress---

Totally agree on both points. I have started making fun (openly) of morons with those headsets. They are not cool, they just look really stupid.

i'll have to admit, that i would make fun of those people driving with those damn headsets, thought they were so lame and ugly. guess who got one (free) with his phone and uses it regularly?

*sigh* i can't help it, it is so convenient that i can still have both hands to do nothing. i mean its great in the car but i notice even at home i don't turn off the earpiece and use it whenever i get a call.

tho for the record, when i am in the store what not i do put the piece in my pocket until my phone rings. usually i don't use a cart but a hand basket and to carry that plus a 12 pack (soda) or water and balance the phone between my head and shouldder, not so cute esp. when it pops out and falls to the ground.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not dissing using the headset. I've been using mine for years and love it. I almost can't handle having to hold a phone any more. The only problem is I often leave the phone in a room and venture too far with the headset in my apartment and start getting cut off. Mine stays in my pocket until I get a call or need to place one.

But, yeah, it's people who walk around the store or outside with in on when they're not talking on it. Stop pretending people want to talk to you!

I'm not returning to my "regular, boring life", David.

I'm returning to my "life 2.0".

Thank you very much.
