A Lo-Tech Girl in a Hi-Tech World

When it comes down to it, there is no way to ignore that technology is the way of the future. For years, while I was constantly connected to my computer and cell phone, all I wanted to do was be out of reach. I found technology to be a nuisance more than anything because I was accessible to everyone that had my cell phone number or my e-mail address. There was never any peace and quiet where I could focus on the task at hand.

Then I entered the real world. With a real job and real responsibilities, including a business of my own, I realized how incredibly convenient and handy technology can be. I suddenly needed to be accessible to the students coming to my yoga class. I needed all of my e-mail addresses and calendars to sync up to my cell phone, my iPad and my computer. While I don’t want to admit it, I have come to find that sometimes you need technology, even when you’re out on the water or have hiked miles into the woods because you simply never know when an emergency will strike.

If you have not yet caught on, I am a very busy person. I am constantly on the phone for work and checking my e-mail. I am always working on something on the computer or driving to my next adventure and this is what led me to my next realization – I need a hands free connection to my cell phone that is smart and wireless. I cannot handle getting tangled in my cord for my headphones with the in-line speaker anymore.

When I began looking at headsets, I really had no idea where to start, but luckily, I was introduced to Plantronics through working at SKC Communications. I use a W730 at work daily, allowing me to flow seamlessly from desk-phone to computer, so I knew automatically that this was something that this is a feature I needed in a Bluetooth headset and then I found the Voyager Legend UC.

Over the following weeks, I will be giving an overview of the headset using my very busy life as the testing center. I don’t claim to know very much about technology save for knowing how to use (most of) it and how perform very elementary troubleshooting steps with it when something goes wrong, so here I am, a low tech girl in a high tech world, where we can all learn together.
