Cobra brings Bluetooth technology to CB technology


Back in the day before everyone had cellphones, my teenaged brain had the idea that my friends and I should all get CB radios as a way to stay in touch and coordinate our runnings around.

It never happened, but I blame the CB’s stereotype of a tool of communications for toothless whiskey-brewin’ types. But if I tried again today, I might get somewhere. Cobra is debuting a CB system for trucks that incorporates Bluetooth, so you can pair it with your phone and use your CB handset to talk over your cell as if it itself were a CB.

And yet, somehow, people still die of cancer.
