Product selection with your network

Published by at 12:42 pm under collaboration,knowledge sharing,networks

Steve Crandall\'s old Western Electric handset updated with a modern speaker and microphone.  There is a switchable bluetooth/usb link to the MacBook Pro.  Charging is done using a usb connection.  Built 2005.I have a tendency to destroy my computer headsets/mics with regularity. I run over the cords, the plugs loosen and then the sound degrades. It is time again to buy a new set, but instead of buying the cheapest set at the local office store, I decided to get the recommendations of my network – since many are also frequent users of this product.

Here is what I learned.

Now all I have to do is make up my mind. That is always the hard part and the downside of research. But the fact remains that with a less-than-140 character question, I got quick, actionable feedback. Think about that in terms of knowledge management and knowledge sharing!
