Woman And Technology

There’s a name for those little ear buds that everyone’s sprouted all of a sudden. You know the ones I’m talking about. The Bluetooth-enabled wireless earpieces for cell phones that have a kind of weird sci-fi feel to them.
It’s not official, of course, but tell someone you got an “OhuraUHURA” and they’ll know exactly what you mean. Particularly if they’re geeky.
Who? Ohurathat’s Uhura The Star Trek crew member best known for her little wireless earpiece receiver, that’s who.
UPDATE:So much for my Geek street-cred. Greg Dewar writes in to correct my spelling. And rightly so. Although I note that the geeks at Gizmodo got it wrong, too.
