We speak with blogger Jill Cordes who tries to help us with our personal device addiction, and as always, we share our genius and fail moments of the week.

headphones in the car

So, re: headphones in the car while you're driving...I used to think people were douchebags for having headphones on while driving, but then I got an iphone as part of my job, and the iphone headset looks exactly like the regular just-listen-to-music headphones except there's a tiny microphone built in. So when I'm on the phone handsfree, now *I* look like the douchebag driving with headphones in with a kid in the backseat. (I swear I hardly ever talk on the phone while driving, not that you're judging me.)
