The Goods (What's in stores today)
So if they ban cell phones while driving, you need to know this: Most lawmakers are OK with hands-free phones. Which leads Jabra to suggest you try EarSet, a speaker-microphone combo that plugs into your phone and ear. And, get this, it comes with a jar of things that look like Gummy candy EarGels. Plug the EarGel in your ear, then the speaker into that and it eliminates road noises. Price varies depending on your phone. (800) 327-2230 or www.jabra.com.
