    Scouting Around For the Best Bluetooth Headset

    Its all the rage these days. Blue tooth this and Bluetooth that. Seems that people are really obsessed with having access to information that doesn’t involve cables. And this is precisely why Bluetooth was built. To avoid messy cables and the possibility of hit and miss infra red, there must be a way to transfer information quickly. Bluetooth solves this problem by allowing devices to talk or link to each other while they are around.

    When Bluetooth came out for the cellular technology sector, it was a huge success. People who want a little or a lot of leeway with information transfer find it on Bluetooth. Many people now use Bluetooth technology to transfer calls from their cellphones directly to cellphone earpiece called a Bluetooth headset. This headset helps people work hands free while leaving them connected to their unit. If you want to get one of the best Bluetooth headsets on the market, what do you need to know and do?

    The first thing is to make sure that the Bluetooth headset is compatible with your cellphone or existing equipment. Some headsets and cell phones have different specifications but work with the same Bluetooth protocol. You can but the most expensive out there but may not work with your unit.

    The next line is the headset style. There are many headsets that can wrap your ears and some of them have in-channel type buds that completely isolate your ears from headset noise and nothing else. If you are looking for comfort, the headset is afraid to come out more comfortable but tends to fall.

    Prices also vary. The more features, the more you pay for it. You should see if you really have to use this feature. Most people prefer to get one based on convenience rather than features but sometimes you can find a good price or an exchange between the two.

    Here are some guidelines you can look into before buying a Bluetooth headset:

    1. Can the headset be worn with glasses? Would it be comfortable?

    2. Will the your ears be sore after having the headset clipped to your ear for the whole day? Does it affect your balance?

    3. Is the voice clarity okay? Can both parties be heard? Are there any static noises?

    4. Are the controls easy to adjust when they are attached to you or do you have to remove it in …

    Replacing Metal Wiring With Fiber Optics

    Copper wiring (or typical metal wiring) has served us well. From the advent of twisted pair technology all the way through to the metal (or copper) wiring found in our computers that allow electrical impulses surge from component to component to give our computers some semblance of life. However, a new trend in this form of wiring is likely to start taking place. It is interesting to note that the materials used in technology that transfers a signal over great distances often winds up finding its way into our home computer related technology. Consider copper wiring that was (and still is to a large extent) the predominant material used in telephone cabling. In your computer if you open it up you are likely to see all manner of soldered copper and metallic wiring all over your motherboard, graphics card and even on your hard drive.

    As fiber optic cable has started becoming the new way of transferring telephone signals – it is soon going to find its way into our computers. Fiber optics essentially works via laser impulses. These impulses convey a signal much more efficiently and faster than a standard electrical impulse that is conveyed via copper or metal cabling. Fiber optic transmission of data signals are looking like they are going to become the next big thing in terms of computer design and development because of this.

    If you have ever had to back up data between two different hard drives then you are probably aware of how time consuming it is. Fiber optic computer components (in the first wave of fiber optic computer technology) promise to transfer data at speeds of up to fifty gigabytes per second. Compare that to copper wiring which transfers data (at a maximum) of ten gigabytes per second and the difference is really noticeable. This technology is not likely to hit the market in an accessible way for quite a while yet – it is something to look forward too however.…
