Aliph's Jawbone ICON Bluetooth headset is getting some nice needed additional functionality that'll enable users to accomplish a myriad of things without getting too distracted. Owners can simply visit the “Innovations” section of MyTALK at mytalk.jawbone.com and add this neat new feature at no additional cost. Basically it allows Jawbone ICON owners to use their Bluetooth headset to listen to podcasts, music, turn-by-turn driving directions, or listen to a live play
-by-play of a sports broadcasting. When you look at it closely, the MyTALK feature allows the headset to stream any audio via Bluetooth from your cell phone
. Hosain Rahman, Aliph's CEO said, “Customers said they wished their Jawbone ICON could both be used for phone calls and for listening to music, eliminating the need for wires. We responded, and now with the MyTALK platform, we are able to satisfy their desire immediately. This is just one example of how Jawbone MyTALK breathes life into Jawbone ICON and lets our users get access to the latest functionality in seconds and with just a few mouse clicks.” Although the MyTALK service is free to add on for any Jawbone ICON owner, the headset itself will set you back $99.
