    I'd wait for 2.1 because you're in Canada. From what I hear, it should have better canadian support

    I'll have 2.1 support when I get a copy

    No worries. Thanks for the info though, I'll keep searching the possibilties because I know the BT headset has noise cancellation qualities. Thus should work as a mic for a PC.

    Yeh, the BT should work well. The problem comes in with how windows supports it. I hope its been fixed though

    I haven't seen any other recommendations for voice recognition microphones to use other than the Logitech one, so I wanted to reply and let you guys know what I use.

    I use the "Omnidirectional Boundary Microphone" from Radio Shack (Part Number 33-3022). It's stellar. It's a little bulky, and requires a button-size battery when in use, but I love it. It costs $39.99 or so.

    I have tried a ton of condensor based microphones (like the Sony phones you can buy at Fry's for $99 and up). They're junk. I never got them to work with a computer, ever.

    I mainly started using these Radio Shack (I hate that store nowadays, never shop there) ones for home automation stuff, and it works great in huge rooms in a house. One room of mine is like 36x18' and I can command the computer from anywhere in it. It's really amazing.

    Once you've tried all the more expensive solutions, you'll agree with me.

    I like the computer desktop mics sometimes, but they require you to be really close to it for it to work. With my boundary mic, anyone in the car could talk to it. I have them planted all over my house too

    Now... If I can only figure out how to get Radio Shack to pay me for this "plug"

    I think Frodo has that one. But he still hasn't had a chance to test my software...

    The only problem I see with this is that it isn't noise-canceling.

    BTW: Shouldn't your A4 have a build in MIC?

    Well, even though we all know that Audi makes the best cars on the planet ( ) my 2001 does not have a built in mic. There is nothing the car would use it for anyway, atleast not my year/model, so I don't know why they'd put an inactive one in, unless they have a uber secret blackbox recording all the swearing when people cut me off and sends it off to headquarters!

    Man, I get silly when I wake up at 3AM...
