• New Philips mobile lets you pop in a AAA when you forget your charger

    I really don’t know why we don’t see more of this melding of the new and old school. Sure, there are products on the market that let you charge your phone with batteries or through the car’s cigarette lighter, but these are aftermarket solutions. This one has a slot for an AAA battery built in, letting you rock out with 3 more hours of talk time. Of course, a AAA is a bit… Read More

  • Review: Philips AJL308 Clock Radio

    So this is a clock radio. Not very exciting, right? It plays music, tells the time, and kind of sits on your bedside table waiting to be hit every morning at about 6:30. But wait… what’s that? A 7-inch TFT LCD? A USB port? SD slot? This is no ordinary clock radio! The AJL308 is actually a photo frame masquerading as a clock radio. It has a… Read More

  • Philips phone can sit in your drawer for two months

    The Xenium 9@9 from Philips has an amazing two-month standby time. That’s roughly half as many months as 2000 Flushes lasts. If you decide to talk on this phone, you could do so for 17 hours. As such, I’ve decided that it’s a GREAT business phone. You could work two 8-hour days where you literally talked all day long and you’d still have an hour left over to call mom… Read More

  • Philips SHD9100 wireless headphones look dandy

    Wireless headphones. Yeah, I’ve never had the best experience with them in the past either. Granted, this is like 1992 we’re talking about when I was trying to watch “Thundercats” without waking my parents, who expressly forbade me from watching shows staring talking cats. *Anyway*, Philips has what looks to be a good++ pair for around $350, the SHD9100. It works on… Read More

Philips’ new amBX peripherals will include things like a rumbling wrist rest, surround speakers with built-in 16-million color synchronizing lights, and fans that sit on your desk “simulating everything from a… Read More

  • The Future Of Copyright Protection Is Here And It Costs $11 An Hour

    It’s no secret that video sites like YouTube benefited from added traffic generated by hosting copyrighted content. But as these sites get acquired, integrate advertising, or just want to avoid a billion dollar lawsuit, they seek to shed their seedy past to stay kosher with the big media giants they hope will feed them content and advertising dollars. There are a lot of startups… Read More

  • Philips DCP850 Portable DVD Player Review

    Having traveled quite a bit in the last six months I really could have used a portable DVD player to drown out the roar of the engines, the terrible movie choices made by the airline, the crying baby two seats over, or the constant jibber-jabber from my girlfriend (just joking, M). While I haven’t had any flights during the review of the Philips DCP850, I have had a handful of train… Read More

  • Vizio Launching 52-inch LCD TV Next Month

    I just finished spending a few months with a Vizio HDTV and for the price, you really can’t complain too much. Those with a thirst for the big screen and a small budget will be excited to know that Vizio will be selling its new 52-inch model online and at Costco stores next month. Word from Taiwan is that the set uses the same exact LCD panels used by LG Philips. Though not cheap by… Read More

  • A History Of The Compact Disc

    SiliconUser has a great piece on the history of the Compact Disc. The most popular music medium to date, the CD actually has quite a complex history that makes for a great read. Turns out the idea for the Compact Disc was born in the 1960s and eventually evolved into a combination of emerging technologies. By 1979, a working prototype was shown off in both Europe and Japan with Sony and… Read More

  • Philips Ambisound First Impressions

    I had the pleasure of checking out a few of Philips upcoming products today in Times Square and I’m not lying when I tell you that I’m pretty darn excited about a few products. The Ambisound home theater system, for instance, caught me by surprise. The sound quality was on par with other top of the line systems and its streamlined design adds a touch of class to any media center. Read More

  • Color A4 E-Paper: Porn Just Got Even Portable-er

    LG and Philips just announced that they’ve created the first A4-sized sheet of color e-paper, a massive step forward in the future of portable reading matter and/or pornography. Trust me — the first color e-paper device will not be used to deliver an illustrated version of As I Lay Dying to the masses. The sheet is completely flexible and uses power only to redraw the screen during… Read More

    DLO, recently acquired by Philips, announced today an updated version of its popular iPod case, the Jam Jacket. Like the old Jackets, the product is designed to protect your DAP from dings and damage by encapsulating it in a rubberized sleeve. Pretty standard stuff.

  • Philips VOIP8411B Skype Phone Does The Job While Looking Pretty

    With the VOIP8411B, Philips jumps into the hurly-burly world of Skype handsets. Fortunately for the Dutch conglomerate, its handset is the best looking of the bunch. It doesn’t do anything that other Skype handsets don’t do—make Skype-to-Skype and SkypeOut phone calls—but it also works as a POTS handset. Remarkable! Read More
