I'm a self described electronics neophyte. As an example, I just bought my first smart phone about a month ago. My kids are grown and gone, and my wife and I are left to our own devices, literally. Our dogs, although quite friendly, seem to be of little help on the subject. I have long commutes, and currently use an mp3 player with ear buds. I'm looking a communication systems. I'd like to start simply, and progress, if my interest continues. Any opinions would be welcomed.
