We all know that we live in an age where we are constantly on the move and we stay connected through our mobile phones. Whether we need to make calls to the pre-school, take part in a conference call, check email, surf the web, tweet a little, or facebook, it’s all at the palms of our hands, anywhere and everywhere we go.
Living in a society that is globally connected through a piece of device, how do we make sure that this mobile movement will be safer, rather than being sorry. With people being on the phone all the time, especially in their car, since it’s usually a downtime to connect with loved ones, or taking a last second business call on the road, there are so many hazards involved. I’ve seen them first hand. My husband was side swiped and rear ended, in a month time-span because each driver was either texting on the highway, or holding onto their mobile phone while doing a lane change. Sounds crazy, right? The fact of the matter is that it happens everyday and probably almost every minute of the day in this world. So how do we make sure that we keep it safe?
Safety is more important then any device or call made in this world. While your own safety is top priority, other people’s safety is as equally important. Being a parent has made me become more cautious than ever because I am responsible for my children’s safety as well.
After another car almost hit me, as the driver was clearly engaged in a conversation, I decided that I had to get some sort of hands-free device for my car. I hate the ear buds that came with my Blackberry, as they break after a month of use (I’ve bought it 2 more times, same thing happened), and I also purchased a high-end Bluetooth earpiece that hurt my ear so much, I could no longer bare the pain. For a couple months, I literally stuck my phone in my bra, and called it a day (it’s hands-free).
One day, my phone in my bra completely went down my shirt and I was like, okay, time to get a bluetooth for my car. So after looking through multiple sites, I came across a little gem of a bird named Parrot. From the Parrot line, the Parrot Minikit Slim was perfect for me and my lifestyle. It was sleek and lighweight which made it visually appealing and practical. It was so easy to use, as you just had to charge it, turn it on, stick it on your sun-visor, and use it.
I was so excited to use the Parrot Minikit Slim, I literally called everyone on my phonebook to test it out. The sound quality was perfect and you could adjust the sound to make it right for you. Also, when my friends called in, the phone would say my friend’s name, and with the right pronuncation. It was amazing and I named the gal on the my Parrot, Sheena (she sounds like a Sheena)! If you want to go back to your phone to speak, you can press the button on the hands-free and it will transfer the call back to the phone. It’s just so simple to use!
I think the Parrot Minikit Slim is perfect for anyone who is looking for a no fuss hands-free Bluetooth for their car. It’s attractive, has nice sound quality, and super easy to use. At the price of $99, it’s definitely worth it! Plus, I use it to talk to my friends when I am in the bathtub, it’s just the ideal bluetooth for me.
