      I was addicted to my Blackberry - had to give it up - had no control over my use in the car. This was before the texting and cell phone bans.

      Yes rb11, auto accidents are something to be taken seriously now.

      The amazing thing about your Hub subject is the small headphones have come way down in price and there is such a variety to choose from. I would vote that auto accidents are the highest fatality in this area.
