Bluetooth Smartphone Accessories
Motorola DROID Roadster 2 and Jawbone ERA Headset
Smartphones are great when they are accessible in your hand, but put them in your pocket, purse or briefcase and functionality greatly diminishes. Bluetooth wireless accessories from many companies have been created to help give people safer access to voice operations of their smartphones. Accessories from Motorola and Jawbone are easier to purchase now that they are available from Verizon Wireless Stores. They have a wide range of gadgets for the home and office.

Talking while driving with a smartphone in hand is extremely dangerous and several states have outlawed the practice. Bluetooth headsets and portable speakers from Motorola and Jawbone are highly recommended, if you must talk while driving. Motorola makes a speaker that clips onto a car visor while Jawbone has engineered a very light headset.

Nokia Lumia ICON Black

Verizon recently introduced their best Nokia Lumia smartphone in mid February called the ICON. Nokia combined the best parts of the Lumia 1520 and shrunk them down into a smaller form factor, perfect for carrying around everyday. The 20MP camera on the Icon has manual controls, which helps me to take better photos. Sharing photos with friends via Instagram, Facebook, Vine and other networks keeps them up to date.

Sharing photos that are 20MP in size usually takes a while, but Verizon’s 4G LTE service helped me to get them posted faster than with other services. Their service works in many more places that the others don’t. Most of the photo sharing apps I use now allow videos like Vine and Instagram. I need the fastest 4G LTE available to get my posts out there.

What is success and are you evolving with social media are two questions I was given this month for article contributions I gave to two top users on Twitter. Those two users are Sean Gardener and Ann Tran. If you are a fan of Twitter or social media in general, you already know about them.

Sean, who worked with Emily Thomas and Marsha McCullough on their article, sent me several questions about what success means to me. The questions were; what is your game plan in five words or less, tell a story about in a few sentences that people may not know and define success in about 100 words.
