Jabra versus Plantronics

Using the Headsets

Interestingly, the Plantronics does not release the Bluetooth connection after making a call. I need to shut it down to connect to the phone with my Tungsten|T. The Jabra releases the connection after each function. I need to research this more. My observations have been that you can not have multiple nodes simultaneously active on the PAN, but I need to confirm this.

Bug or feature. &#59;) Comparing the Plantronics to the Jabra shows an interesting difference. With the phone settings the same, and no way to change the headset settings that I've found so far, these two headsets hold the Bluetooth connection differently. The Jabra connects, releases and reconnects for every step; this seems to cause the Jabra to miss some data transfer. The Plantronics seems to hold the connection until you turn off the headset; it gets everything but is annoying when I want to connect my Palm via Bluetooth to the phone. Let's say I've used each of the headsets to issue the voice command to call you on your cell, but I don't get a connection. So I wait until I know I'm in a good cell zone and issue the command to redial. On the Jabra, I touch the multi-function switch, wait for beep (BT connect) then boop (issue name command) "Chris", phone says "Chris", then boop (issue location command) "mobile", phone says "mobile"; then I get ba-blooop - no cell sound from phone; later I touch the multi-function switch on the Jabra, wait for beep (BT connect) then boop (issue name command) "redial", phone says "redial", then BT connection goes away until the headset reconnects with the phone in the middle of a ring. On the Plantronics, I hold the TALK switch for about 2 second until I hear a beep (BT connect) then boop (issue name command) "Chris", phone says "Chris", then boop (issue location command) "mobile", phone says "mobile"; then oddly enough no sounds; later I hold down the TALK switch again until the beep (BT connect) then boop (issue name command) "redial", phone says "redial", but the BT connection sticks and I hear the phone repeat "Chris - Mobile" and it rings. So... bug or feature?

I'm Joseph A. di Paolantonio and this blog has two main foci: my interest in food, and my interest in the future. This provides a look into my personal life, and is separate from my consulting work…though there will be overlap. I am an independent researcher, working as a strategic consultant and I'm an executive with over 20 years of commercial experience with a technical interest in the intersection of Internet of Things, with advanced data management and analysis methods. I view data science as a team activity, and I feel that the IoT must be viewed as a system. I am leveraging my past activities to understand the adoption and impact of the IoT; first, as a system engineer in aerospace, where I developed Bayesian risk assessment methods for systems within the Space Transportation System (including the Space Shuttle), Extreme Ultraviolet Explorer, Gravity Probe B, and many more, and second, as a enterprise data warehousing, business intelligence and analytics professional. Between my aerospace and IT careers, I indulged my hobby of cooking by starting a food company, Montara Magic, centered around my chocolate sauces. My education combined chemistry, mathematics and philosophy. I performed research into molten salt fuel cells in graduate school, and in photovoltaic materials for a short time in industry. The lure of bringing the human race into space was strong, and when I was offered the chance to combine my chemistry and mathematics skills to develop new risk assessment and system engineering methods for space launch and propulsion systems – I couldn't resist. I perform independent research and strategic consulting to bring value from the Internet of Things, Sensor Analytics Ecosystems and data science teams.I am a caregiver, a lover of science fiction and speculative fantasy, and my passion to learn has led me to a pilot's license, an assistant instructor in SCUBA, nordic and alpine skiing, sea kayaking, and reading everything I can, in as many topics as I can.
