I walked in the editor’s office and was shocked to discover she had become one of Them. Attached to her ear like some alien wildlife tag was a Bluetooth earpiece for her iPhone.
It’s funny how new technologies keep creeping into the workplace. My Mac Book Pro sports a Bluetooth wireless mouse, digital cameras have options to allow for Wi-Fi downloading and even the latest iPod has options for web browsing while you sip your coffee at Starbucks.
I don’t have an iPod touch, I still download my pictures with a memory card reader and I don’t want to look like I am receiving signals from the alien mothership while I walk around downtown Tracy. Now if they ever invent a wireless coffee maker that allows me to pour my coffee while I am still in bed I’ll be all over that.
