Caller: Hi. Can you talk?
You: What? The baby’s screaming. Can you hear me?
Caller: Clear as a bell. I’m wearing my new Jawbone Prime.
You: What’s that? A kind of face cream?
Caller: It’s a wireless headset from Aliph, a personal technology company here in the city.
You: Sorry. I was nursing the baby and dropped my phone. It’s impossible to hold it while getting him to latch.
Caller: This gizmo stays put in your ear and has even better noise cancellation than its predecessor. You could be calling in to a meeting at work while pushing the stroller in the wind at Crissy Field and they’d never know.
You: Wait. The baby was crying. I’m back. Did I lose you?
Caller: No. Just your hearing.
Caller: Never mind.
