I have a Bluetooth Addiction…

Hi, my name is Ted, and I’m a Bluetooth addict.

I have, on my desk at work right now, no fewer than six Bluetoothdevices. They are as follows:

  1. JBL Elite 700 Active Noise Canceling headphones.
  2. A generic BT speaker branded with the 8×8 logo.
  3. JLab JBuds Air wireless earbuds.
  4. Anker earbuds
  5. August branded over-the-ear headphones (I’ve got another pair at home).
  6. TaoTronics TT-BH040 Active Noise Canceling headphones.

I bring this up because I just purchased the JLab JBuds Air and they arrived today. I have a soft spot in my heart for JLabs, they’re California-based and have really good quality devices for a VERY competitive price. I’ve only had them for an hour or two, but they passed the Run The Jewels “Hey Kids (Bumaye)” bass test. That is to say, they have pretty good/excellent bass for what they are. I’ll give them a week or so to see how they do in a real-world environment (call quality, battery life, ease of use, etc.) and circle back and do a proper review of them. In the meantime, enjoy DJ Shadow and RTJ’s classic Nobody Speak:

you wanna hear a good joke?

Hello World!

So, the old blog had been sitting fallow for almost four years, the last post was February of 2015, so I’ve decided to nuke it from orbit and start again. My hope is to update this once or twice a week to do a couple of things:

  • Work on my writing skills: I don’t do a lot of non-business writing anymore and am feeling rusty. Let’s try to fix that, eh?
  • Write about what’s happening in and around my life: I do some pretty interesting (at least to me) things like D&D, Comic Conventions, and I work in IT and see some cool tech come across my desk.
  • Write creatively: You might see some short stories on the site, you may not, but it’s a goal.

That’s it for now. Stay tuned!
