Win a Jawbone ICON Hero for Dad this Father’s Day

I have a new piece of tech that I absolutely love. It is a Jawbone® ICON Rogue. This lightweight Jawbone® Bluetooth headset has solved a major problem for me. I am a podcast junkie. I listen to sixteen different podcasts. I’m constantly listening to them as I work and on my rides to and from work. The problem is that many podcasts are recorded really low and having a headphones on while I listen to them is fine but being in the car they are hard to hear. This problem has been solved by the Jawbone® ICON Rogue.

I am able to put the Jawbone® ICON in my ear and listen to podcasts to my heart’s content, anytime anywhere. The reason for this is the app I downloaded to the headset, yes an app for it! You can check out all the apps at MyTalk. You can personalize the software on your ICON very easily.

I’ve used the Jawbone® ICON Rogue to not only listen to podcast but also to do a Sykpe call on my Droid which worked perfectly. Phone calls are crystal clear too because of NoiseAssassin® which is military-grade noise-eliminating technology. This is great news because I make a lot of calls in the car and being able to hear everything is key. On the other side the people I have talked with hear me perfectly as well.

So, I was given two of these Jawbone® ICONs. I got to keep one of them and I am able to give one of them away, to you! More on that later.

I was so impressed by the packaging for the Jawbone® ICON. The headset itself was on a display stand and below that was a compartment with all the accessories like different ear piece cushions, there are three sizes for both in the ear and over the ear options. I initially thought I needed the smallest size so it would fit nice and snuggly in my ear. I was wrong, I needed the largest size and the fit is perfect. I don’t need to worry about it falling out and I don’t need to use the over the ear option to secure it.

another thing I love about the Jawbone® Bluetooth headset is that I can charge it via USB. There is a wall plug provided and it is a small stealthy one, which is awesome. I’m just so impressed that the headset can be plugged into any USB port and be charged. It makes it so much easier when I travel. Everything comes in that great package. Such thought was put into this product.

I’m running a contest from now till Father’s Day to give away the second Jawbone® ICON Bluetooth headset. This one is called the Hero.

I decided to give this one away because Dads are Heroes and I’d like to hear more about how your Dad is a Hero. So that is the contest.

  1. My dad is a hero for a few reasons. He was born in 1926 and lived through the depression in West Seattle, WA. His dad passed away early in life, so he learned to drive (although he detested it) so he could take a job delivering groceries to support him and his mother. During summers, his friends and him would build small skiffs (sailboats) and sail them from Fauntleroy to Alki Beach (West Seattle Wa) for fun. My dad graduated in a half class meaning, his mother accepted his diploma for him. He was already enlisted and serving our country during wartime overseas. I can only imagine how scary that was for her and all the other mothers there at West Seattle High School.

    Later on, my dad gets this crazy idea that he’s going to float a wooden hull from Indianola to West Seattle (before I was born). He ended up building a 30′ sailboat from this hull and it was the same sailboat I learned to sail with. Unfortunately it broke moorage and we both watched it slam ashore and it literally disintegrated before our eyes. We both cried. I think one of his better fun things is that he’d create small Linux based screensavers of sailboats and have them running on his computers randomly just to irritate my mom. 😀

    My dad’s eccentric as all get out. Unfortunately, he also has advancing Alzheimer’s too, so I try to get as much family history out of him while I can. But I’m grateful to him for all the lessons he’s taught me and the appreciation and respect for the beach and nature he taught me as well. Everyone should be so lucky to have that from someone in their lifetime.

    (I did check out the website you mentioned above but found another contest that was different than this that involved video. You don’t want me explaining this story with blonde and blue hair with an iPhone video, seriously)
    .-= Look at what Johanna Baxter wrote blog ..My Memorial Day =-.

  2. He’s always there for us and will do anything for his family. This would be cool because he could talk on the phone while doing other work. (He pretty much does this already, but it’s hard with a phone in his hand)

  3. HI Drew actually i was looking for this kind of stuff. Whatever information u posted on this blog its help me a lot. Thanks.

  8. and I should win that Jawbone, not because I want it, but because my father that I’ve always aspired to be exactly like when I grow up is a technophone. This could turn him. This is the man who told me in my formative years to speak eloquently since that was the only way to carry my ideas accurately. If I wasn’t going to convey them accurately, why waste the time trying to form good ideas. This is also the man that told me the only secret to women is that they’re people. Stop trying to figure them out. I’d only break somebody’s heart, and it’d most likely be mine. He would talk about anything with me, except his time as a medic in Viet Nam, where he spent my 2nd – 4rd birthday, except to say he wished he didn’t have to miss that part but a man’s gotta step up to his responsibilities. No matter what. He’s the man that taught me that even when family is wrong, you stand up for them in the face of whatever mess they’ve made. Families can straighten it out amongst themselves later and eventually I’d make at least that big of a mess. He taught me that integrity is expensive to maintain, but you can’t buy it anywhere else and it’s the only thing you’ve got that is yours. He taught me that saying you love something/one isn’t the same thing as loving it/them. Without the show, the words are useless. He taught me that smiling and being yourself are the easiest ways to make friends, that chivalry is worth it, and to plan for things you can’t control. In his words “keep that car maintained, it’s really crowded out there walking.” I’m pretty sure he didn’t just mean cars. I love my dad, and I hope he has an awesome Father’s Day no matter who wins Drew’s contest.

    1. grrr. Just read the requirements – this had to come first – sokay, even though I just disqualified myself, I may buy him one of these anyway. Baby steps – I just got him to start using Google Apps. He still won’t SMS though.

  9. I always believed that wired headsets were the best, I’ve tried each headset there’s, and I will be able to inform you unquestionably that the Sound ID 510 Headset is the best, plus if in case you have an iphone there’s an app for that.
