Amazon Deal: Philips Wake-Up Light $65

I bought the Philips Wake-Up Light about a month ago for $90. My 16-year-old daughter loves it, and since she has been using the Philips wake up alarm I’ve not once had to reminder her that it’s time to get up for school.

There are many new products that get amazing sound from a compact package when it comes to television audio.

It is not that I expect theater sound and booming bass, but half of the time I just cannot hear. When I am watching Hulu or Netflix I want to…


Review: Philips Multimedia Speakers 2.0. Cute But Party Hard!

I remember a day when listening to music meant a stereo was in the room with you. Since today out music is completely mobile, the old fashion stereo unit is almost extinct. I find myself listening to a computer or my iPhone.

Philips Norelco arcitec 1090 Electric Shaver Review

Wet or dry? That’s the question men have faced since the invention of the electric shaver. For years, I used Braun electric shavers, but they weren’t waterproof and  I got tired of buying refills for the cleaning base, so I switched to the vibrating Gillettes a year ago.
