A: Utter horror! The Bluetooth headset makes even the best-dressed men look like something out of Star Trek. In fact, there is something specifically Ferengi about them. I bought the most discreet-looking unit I could find, and I can hardly bring myself to use it in the car—though the law prohibits handsets and I’ve got one offense on my record already. It’s funny, but the hands-free phone is one innovation I just can’t get used to. I still think people are walking down the street talking to themselves. Convenience is fine, but dignity comes first. I’m waiting for the fedora phone or the monocle-cord mike with hearing-aid phone—it should look like one of those hearing aids that the singer Johnnie Ray wore in the ’50s.
