“My sister-in-law recently told me about someone who walks into her office every day dressed in a long black trench coat, sunglasses (regardless of the weather), and a huge Bluetooth earpiece for his mobile phone. “I think it’s just part of the whole Matrix look he was aiming for,” she says. “It was just jewelry.””
USA Today today has an article on how technology becomes part of our lives not only as something useful, but also as jewelry and decoration. Including the great photo of bluetooth lederhosen you can see above.
(Also, I really fancy a sentence that’s not quite relevant here, but there you go: “Bluetooth turns technology users into Pinocchios without strings.”)
