When it comes to Bluetooth headsets...some people love ‘em....some hate ‘em....and some don't really like them but wear one to avoid a ticket for holding a phone while driving.

"For instance, one of those dial apps lets you actually post to Twitter and listen in on your Twitter feed. Or you can send a text message to someone...all using your voice."

Some of the apps require service subscriptions. The different downloadable voice styles for the headset...are free. The Jawbone Icon sells for under a hundred dollars.
