First off, I love technology, I don't hate ipods or cell phones, I think they're great ideas and very conveniant, I feel naked and adrift in the world without my cell. But those damn NEXTEL two-way walkie talkies. First, I see no point in them, with the advent of cell phones, why on Earth would one opt to purchase a device that allows other people hear their entire conversation? The only scenario that I can see where these would be useful is for work sites so that the bosses and employees can keep in touch with one another on site, but in public? Second, the dreaded double *CHIRPING*ing sound they make. I must hear this sound at least 4 times a day, sometimes more (those are counted as whole sessions BTW, and not individual chirps), when I go to work. Why does it make that sound anyway is what i'd like to know, is it to let you know to talk or to let the other person know to talk? Cell's are smaller, more discrete and most importantly they are...*silent*, except when they ring of course, but at least most people have catchy tunes or jingles as their ring tone. Eh, okay, rant of the day ended.
