A couple of news stories this morning got my attention just because...
The biggest fad for play among kids these days is water bottle flipping. They take the 12 ounce bottles of water, flip them in the air and try to get the bottle to land sitting up. The flip on floors, window sills, tables etc for hours.
Then one business has already begun its Black Friday sales online. Treblab a headphone company, is offering a pair of waterproof headphones with noise cancellation and built in microphone and waterproof for 78 percent off. Was 179.99 and is now 39.99.
That's a huge come down in price which makes you wonder about the quality of the product. But all this fascination with headphones and earbuds also makes me wonder. Every tech sale whether Black Friday or not, has headphones on its list. What is with the headphone obsession?
We see people wearing these things all day long. They have no idea of what's going on around them and we wonder just what is it they're listening too so constantly. And, waterproof? Are they seriously showering or swimming while wearing headphones?
