    do you have a stupid question and you are too embarrassed to ask someone in real life? googling doesn't make it clear? ask it here.


    when it comes to tech, i'm badly uninformed so ima ask:

    i use my smartphone to listen to music etc while wearing ear buds. if i get blue tooth earbuds, will i be able to leave my phone in one room and listen to music from the phone in another while wearing the blue tooth earbuds?

    will i be able to mute the sound from the phone and only have it come through the buds?

    i've been reading up on it and i think yes but i'm not sure.

    :dontknow:




    i'm thinking i'm the only one with a stupid question but you never know. :leaf:

    I assume you could use the ear buds through bluetooth, but I think the phone can't be muted. My only question is about some javascript programming so I won't ask it

    I had a set of Motorola bluetooth headphones. Yes, they would work at a respectable distance from the phone. IDK about your muting question.
    I didn't like them. They were great when they worked, but I wore them at work, so I needed something that would go for several hours. Mine wouldn't. They also didn't work outside, at all. I know other do, but mine would cut out immediately if I stepped outside. I could never figure out why.
    I guess what I'm saying is; stay away from Motorola.

    i worked for motorola for a few months. they kept track of every second, not minute but second of your work day. if you were 30 seconds late from lunch, your paycheck would be reduced by one minute. :jj:

    they kept telling us they were people friendly and then would put ex nazis in charge of quotas.

    i would never buy a motorola product! :grad:

    The distance all depends on the set you buy. I use blutooth headphones in my shop to listen to music even netflix while I do woodworking. All sound, phonecalls included, come thru the headphones. Most will have a tiny mic included to answer calls.

    Mine are fairly cheap so the distance sucks. I can't go more than 30 feet or so without the quality dropping.

    I paid maybe $40 or so.

    Here's a great site to search reviews on ANYTHING.

    http://www.toptenreviews.com/


    You can get a pretty good idea of what to look for in features and price ranges.

    how i left motorola was kind of funny. my gf's uncle was a big wig with the company. my gf and i decided that i was going to stop dealing ( :nocheer: ) and we were going to live like people with jobs. :jj:

    so i got a job that was kind of fun. it was wire bonding. we'd use a magnifier to bond wires to a mother board kind of thing. very delicate work. anyway i got to know some of the people and one day i decided to sell a bag to a guy who couldn't find any.

    dumbshit leaves at lunch and comes back with red eyes and a smile. his supervisor knew what was up and asked him where he got the pot. he pointed at me. then the manager asked for the pot and he gave him the baggie. it turns out that this dummy had never smoked good pot before and he got way higher than he thought he would.

    stupid bastard! so management hauled me into a room with him and asked if i sold him pot. i acted shocked and accused the dummy of using me to cover for someone else.

    they asked if i would take a lie detector test and i said sure. i was to come back the next day. i left and that was that. the gf was very cool about it, she lived with me after all. that's when i got back into contracting. i eventually stopped selling pot. took awhile though. :leaf:
