The technologist with the broken technology

Well, that didn't take long at all. I've managed to break my new Treo 600 in record time. The wonky headphone adapter that is needed to plug-in headphones for mp3 listening was acting up on the drive to Tahoe last Thursday. Sometime Friday morning, I bumped the adapter just right and now my phone thinks the headphone adapter is permanently 'in'. As you can imagine this resulted in some phone calls that went a lot like a pre-recorded message. 'Hi, this is Jason. You can probably hear me right now but I'm a dork and ruined my multi-hundred dollar phone with a $5 headphone adapter so I can't hear you. I'll call you back if you would be so kind as to leave a message.'

If I use the hands-free adapter I'm golden, but it's not really cool to walk around with that thing wadded up in my pocket. I don't know if I'll get it sorted out by the time I'm at Etech next week. I'll make a point to keep Verichat on so I'll be IM-able. See you in San Diego.
