It Takes a Lickin!

Wednesday, March 21, 2007


About six months ago I bought a Plantronics Discovery 640 Bluetooth headset based upon a recommendation from a friend. It's been great. It works as advertised, and is very small and lightweight -- my main criteria for a headset.

A week ago I was at my vacation cabin and misplaced it. I looked everywhere and couldn't find it. Last night I came back to the cabin, whereupon it proceeded to rain hard all night. This morning I found my headset, on the ground just outside my door. It spent the entire week outside, on the ground, in the rain.

I took it inside and put it on the charger. It fired right up. Now that's tough!

[For those of you under 30, the title was a reference to a Timex ad. They make these things called watches. Which is what people used to use before cell phones when they needed to know what time it was. Super-geeky people used to use their pagers, which is what used to ruin your home life before your boss discovered your cell phone number. ]
