Sony is taking preorders for their $300 Wireless Neckband Speaker.

Reminds of the Bone Fone from 1979.

Bone Fone was the first thing that came to my mind too.

Didn't RCA Victrola do that 120 years ago?

I remember the JS&A catalogs and the Bone Fone.

Somebody I knew had one, and it was terrible.

The idea was interesting, the implementation severely lacking.

I tried bone conduction headphones as was sufficiently disappointed that the AfterShokz 'phones never interested be.

Ok, they did until Leo Laporte start singing their praises.

Then I knew they weren't worth the money.

Now wearable speakers like this Sony neckband are of interest to me, just not $300 worth.

I'll wait for some competition, maybe even something from Alibaba Express.

That Sony thing does look like nice kit, though.





Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody matters or nobody matters.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

I literally clicked on this to bring up the Bone Fone. They were pretty cool.
