HANDS FREE
Using a handheld cellphone while driving is already banned in some states. Here are several accessories to help you make sure you don't break the law. what size speakers are in my car
* If you're driving in New York and you get a call on your cellphone, it might cost you a lot more than the airtime charge you're usually billed. Last summer, New York became the first state to enact legislation (effective Dec. 1) banning the use of handheld cellular phones while driving--the fine is 100 bucks. At press time, more than 20 states had similar legislation pending, so if you don't want to lose your right to dish and drive consider buying yourself an early Christmas present: a hands-free cellphone kit.

Cellphone manufacturers say their view has always been the same. "Nokia's position is: Don't use a phone while driving," according to a company spokesperson. Right. Of course these companies cannot change human behavior. What they can do--and have done--is create hands-free solutions to let you chat while keeping your eyes on the road and hands on the wheel. Here is a look at some of the latest products.
More Talk, Less Trouble
The starting price for a wired earbud model is about $12, and prices go up to $300 or so for a cutting-edge wireless connection kit. Permanently installed systems with phone holders, Speakers Reviews How to choose the Best Car Speakers and microphones sell for about $250, plus installation. In addition, there's a wide assortment of options well-suited to both drivers and "walker talkers."
The latest technology in wireless communications is called Bluetooth. One of the things this technology can do is connect a Bluetooth-enabled cellphone to a Bluetooth headset without a wire. Bluetooth is just one of the wireless transmission standards that could replace cables between laptops and cellphones, computers and printers, even between digital cameras and computers. Bluetooth-enabled devices operate in the 2.4-GHz RF (radio frequency) with a bandwidth of 1 megabit per second. Bluetooth devices don't require a line of sight, but there is a limited operating range of 30 ft. between devices. That means you could answer a call while driving even if your cellphone were in the trunk.

Ericsson was the first company to utilize Bluetooth technology, including it in its T28 World Phone and a compatible headset last spring. While a Bluetooth module adapts the T28 for hands-free use, several new Ericsson phones will have Bluetooth capability built in. The Bluetooth solution adds $229 to the cost of Ericsson's T28. Bluetooth is likely to remain at the high end of phone solutions for a while.
Motorola's Timeport 270c phone becomes Bluetooth-capable when you add the plug-in module ($150) and compatible headset (price not yet available), which will be in stores by the end of the year. Motorola is also introducing, within a few months, a Bluetooth PC Card modem that will provide a laptop with 56-kilobit-per-second (Kbps) data-transfer speed. Currently, speeds are at 19Kbps.
Accessories maker Plantronics will deliver the M1000 Bluetooth headset this fall. The $149 over-the-ear headset has a noise-canceling microphone that is positioned a few inches from the mouth for optimum voice clarity. The headset needs power to be able to send and receive signals so the M1000 packs a rechargeable nickel-metal-hydride battery. A charger, which is included, lets you recharge the phone and headset simultaneously. Talk time for the headset is 3 hours with a recharge time of 1 hour.
Another wireless alternative comes from Axyys Corp., in the form of a $149 wireless headset/speakerphone called Avant. Unlike the infrared-based remote control you use to turn on your TV, Axyys uses a widespread infrared beam (50 [degrees]) and five transmitters to send signals between the headset and phone. The base unit that comes with the headset plugs into your vehicle's cigarette lighter. It also doubles as a speakerphone for use when you're charging the headset. The headset has 2 1/2 hours of talk time with a recharge time of 8 to 9 hours.
Axyys ships adapters with the Avant to make it compatible with virtually all cellular phones. But, not all cellphone manufacturers offer this kind of compatibility. The headset for a Nokia 8290 phone won't work with the Nokia 6160, for example. And even though a generic 2.5mm headphone plug that works with many cellphones (and cordless phones) will fit into a Nokia 8290 jack, the headset won't work without an adapter because Nokia adds a third connector to enable certain features in its phones.
Some Nokia headsets come with a button on the cord that lets you send and end calls without having to fumble for the phone. Motorola, too, plans some send/end features that will require a proprietary headset.
Bottom line: Know your phone's manufacturer and model number when shopping for a headset.
Low End
If you're looking for a simple, inexpensive hands-free solution, you won't run short on choices. Earbuds like the Recoton JTH930 ($12) are less expensive options. The Recoton piece uses foam-covered earphones on a coiled wire that connects to the 2.5mm jack on a cellphone. The same wire holds an integrated omnidirectional microphone and a lapel clip. Keep in mind that earbuds fit some ears better than others and can be uncomfortable over long stretches.
Other headsets provide boom-style microphones that rest closer to the mouth. Recoton's JTH940 over-the-head ($16), JTH950 over-the-ear ($12) and JTH960 ($20) behind-the-neck headsets all sport noise-reducing windscreen microphones. They also have lapel and belt clips to help manage wires.
Headphone maker Koss has come up with a unique in-ear headset design that also boasts a boom microphone for more accurate speech pickup. The Koss ComPlug ($20) has an expandable ear cushion that fits into the ear like an earplug you'd use when swimming. This allows for a custom fit that offers comfort, and isolation from outside noise. The noise-canceling microphone is attached to the end of a tubular structure that collapses when not in use. The ComPlug has a 2.5mm plug and comes with a lifetime warranty.
As competition heats up in the entry-level hands-free accessories market, expect to see extras packed into cellular phone headsets. The Motorola FM stereo radio headset ($55) is a hands-free headset with an earbud like many other hands-free cellphones. If you walk a lot with you phone you'll appreciate the built-in FM tuner, which shows station frequency on the phone display. You can use the phone keypad to store and recall favorite stations, and if you get a phone call while listening to the radio, the headset automatically mutes. Incidentally, 1 hour of radio play eats up 5 minutes of talk time.
Next On The Menu
Combination kits with a separate speaker are the next step up from portable hands-free accessories. Ericsson's Quick Install Handsfree HF 6100 ($50) comes with an integrated charger, speaker and microphone. A separate phone holder can be mounted to the dash. Nokia has a similar solution called the Express Car Kit, or CARK-120. It works with the 8260 phone and sells for $120. Both products can be transported from vehicle to vehicle.
Road warriors who make business calls from the car require the best voice quality available, and that comes from a professionally installed system. Unlike the aforementioned kits, these systems include a permanently mounted phone holder, and a microphone and speaker that are wired to locations far enough apart to prevent feedback. Installed car kits also can be integrated with a car's electrical system. This means when the phone rings the radio mutes, and, with some models, you can hear the caller's voice through the What are the best car speakers. These kits sell for about $250, not including installation.
It's not just accessories that deliver hands-free solutions. Voice recognition, voice dialing, speakerphones and other built-in phone features are expected to draw consumers. Motorola's Timeport 270c has 20 voice presets that let you dial by voice. Press a button on the Bluetooth headset to make a call, say a name, and the phone will dial the number.
New Ericsson phones sport a feature called Magic Word. Pick a word you never use in everyday speech--say, abracadabra--and that triggers a switch to voice-recognition mode. You can then choose how to handle calls without taking your hands off the wheel. Some Ericsson headsets have voice tags that enable you to tag a name to a number and call by speaking a name. You also can answer a call by saying "answer," and refuse one by saying "busy."
Clearly, a no-install, no-wires approach is most people's dream for hands-tree cell-phone use. It remains to be seen whether Bluetooth will be the ultimate hands-free solution. According to market research firm Strategy Analytics, more than half of all cellphones will be Bluetooth-enabled by 2006. Still, Bluetooth products have been slow to come out of the gate due to issues with interoperability between devices. But the big three phone manufacturers--Ericsson, Motorola and Nokia--remain committed to the Bluetooth technology as a wireless solution. Nokia says it will have a Bluetooth product in the next year or so. Ericsson and Motorola are already in the game.

What Internet browser are you using? The file that should have downloaded is named something like
Apache_OpenOffice_4.1.4_Win_x86_install_en-US.exe
Exact form depends on language chosen. Double clicking this should put the OO installation files on your desktop and then proceed to install.
Apache OpenOffice 4.1.5 on Xubuntu 18.04 (mostly 64 bit version) and infrequently on Win2K/XP

Instmsia and instmsiw are updates for the Windows Installer. Instmsia is for Windows 9x, so you should get a "wrong OS" error on XP, but you probably don't need to update the Windows Installer anyway unless you're using an old version of XP which hasn't been updated. There are two Setup files, Setup.exe and Setup.ini. Double-click the Setup.exe file, not the Setup.ini file.
