I don't know about you, but I use a single earpiece-mic (with
button on mic) wire -- one ear.  I then leave the other ear
free for listening to traffic.  Since I ride on the right
side of the road (for those of us in the US), that earpiece
goes in my right ear, leaving my left free to listen for

I can listen to my MP3s (not only music, but personal notes I
take when I work), hear incoming calls (over any MP3
playback), answer incoming calls (pauses MP3s playback), make
calls with voice dialing, etc...

About the only thing I don't do on the Linux PC is record the
voice names and associate them with contacts for voice
dialing.  Everything else -- calendaring, contacts, MP3
uploads/playlist editing, etc.... is done on the MP3.

As I said, don't make excuses, I'm not asking for them.
If you make excuses, I might share my "to each his own."
But I will _never_ assert it's "the right tool for the job."
It's just what I want, and what works for me.
