4/22    Costco is selling "Bluetooth Capable Premium Digital Hearing Aids" for
        $1999.99 a pair.  My Bluetooth cell phone headset is maybe $30 for one
        ear.  Why does hearing aid cost so much?
        \_ Medical insurance?
        \_ Does $2000-your medical deductible = $30?
           \_ How come insurance companies allow such rip-offs?
              \_ They're partnered with the BCPDHA company.

1/3     What headphones (non-earbud) do you use or recommend for your
        Ipod or other MP3 Player?
        \_ I borrowed my friend's Sennheiser HD500 and could hear sounds
           I've never heard before on many songs. They're quite pricey
           but you'll notice the difference in sound quality.
        \_ I wonder why iPod doesn't have bluetooth. I hate the wires.

12/29   Motd gadget guru, I would like to get a noise cancellation
        headphone for use on airplanes and commutes, should I go with
        something like Sennheiser PCX 250, or Shure E2/3c? The Shure
        is more portable, how well does it work in airplanes? Thanks.
        \_ Related question, are there any noise cancellation headphones
           with volume control? My Dad would be interested in such a

12/30   Looking for a Windows Mobile-based PDA.  I'm mainly going to use
        Excel Mobile on it and keep addresses/phone numbers.  HP iPaq line
        or the Dell Axim line?  Good/bad experiences with either?  Thanks.
        \_ tell us about the real estate market!
        \_ I just upgraded from an iPaq 3835 to an Axim x51v.  The wireless is
           pretty nice with the x51v, but there are tons of problems with the

12/20   I have a Nokia 3220 (the one with rubber lights on the side).
        Since it doesn't have Bluetooth built in, I bought the AD-5B
        Bluetooth adapter which on the web site says is compatible
        with 3220. I also bought a Bluetooth headset. Here is my
        problem, after plugging in my AD-5B into the 3220, I pressed
        the control key and the Bluetooth headset sync button, but
