So, i was watching TV last night and this commercial for an injury lawyer came on.  the commercial starts out with the "client" speaking to a receptionist.  i'm not really paying too much attention because of the type of commercial it is, but i notice an gray and white headset on the operator with the "Xbox360" clearly showing on the side of the head facing the camera.   i was dumbfounded.  who in their right mind would call this freaking lawyer when they notice their operator is wearing part of a video game console on his head.  Pure Idiocy.

You do know there are multiple brands of headsets and they all work on multiple types of devices, right?  I've got a Playstation 2 USB headset I use when I'm going conferance calls though my PC.

if you've ever seen the 360's headset, you'd know there's only 1 thing it could possible plug into. i use the SOCOM logitech USB headset on my computer too but the 360's will only plug into the controller.

If I've ever seen the 360 headset..... *rolls eyes* What forums you on boy? *SLAP* *SLAP* *SLAP* That connector is a universal, it fits in cell phones, cd players, all kinds of things.

Umm, Comorat, the 360 headset only plugs into the controller, nothing else.

I must have imagined all the other things I've hooked it up to then, thank you for bringing this delusion mental state to my attention. Now the healing can begin.

In Sarah Silverman's new sitcom on comedy central... one of her gay friends was screaming at 13 year olds in a halo2 multiplayer session.

look, the curvature alone on the headset's plug prevents it from being plugged into a large number of things.  the point of this entire thread is that if you are an attorney who wants to be taken seriously,  don't have some low budget commercial where the operator is speaking to a "client" over a piece of video game paraphernalia.  i just found it to be funny.  similar to a toddler vacuuming the floor with his multi-color, ball popping vacuum.

Yes, The Sarah Silverman Program is genius. But it will be cancelled, no doubt about that. Just like Stella, it is a "smarter than it appears" comedy that only a small crowd will appreciate and it will be tossed out the window, and missed I should add. America today wants mindless, uncreative, loud, obnoxious, easy to get dribble like Mind of Mencia.

Maybe he broke off the plastic that makes it only plug into the controller? Because he is right, that gold connector is basically universal.
