Earlier this week, I was contacted by CBC News to see if I’d be interested in talking on camera (as a technology expert) about various bluetooth devices and handsfree technology on the market. The reason for the story was the new law which goes into effect in British Columbia as of January 1st, 2010 where drivers are basically banned from using any kind of electronic device while operating their vehicle. This has led to a huge increase in sales and interest in handsfree devices and the CBC wanted to give consumers some information in order to wade through all the products on the market.
Hopefully, I helped to clarify some things for folks out there.
Here’s the segments edited together from the news broadcast which originally aired on December 31st on CBC News (Vancouver) which I captured with my TiVo (sadly not in high definition but I needed a haircut anyway):
Thanks to my pal, Tris Hussey for the recommendation to the CBC producers.
