Hammacher TV remote wrist watch

If you know us well, you’ll know that we’ve got a soft spot when it comes to all things gizmos and gadgets related that can be strapped to the wrist. The latest Hammacher wrist watch may not be a mobile watch but it is a mouth watering geeky TV remote control wrist watch, another reason to keep our arse on the couch and not even have to bother picking up the remote.
Now often these watches may have plenty of functions and features but can look hideous, this one from Hammacher on the other hand has a retro touch to it, not too far off from some of Diesel’s watch collection in my view. There are six buttons on the watch’s bezel command essential functions (volume, power, channel up/down, play/rewind/fast forward) of televisions. It’ll also control your DVD player and any other devices that use infrared signals. The brushed stainless steel watch also functions as an accurate digital timepiece with alarm, calendar, and chronograph. For $100, I reckon that’s not too bad, is it dorky?

AT&T MiFi 2372 review

In the week or so that I have been testing the AT&T MiFi 2372 by Novatel Wireless, it has already saved no less than three lives. First, it saved my cable guy’s life. You see, Time Warner Cable provides the worst home Internet service I have ever experienced. I can’t even think of a close second. If providing terrible home Internet service was a sport, Time Warner Cable would be on its tenth consecutive undefeated season. Forget the fact that my upload speed is capped at 60Kbps and I’m lucky if I can get half that — it has been months since I’ve gone through a full day without at least one service interruption. Months. Unfortunately, Time Warner Cable has an exclusive contract with my building so I have no choice but to endure its abysmal service. Last week, as a Time Warner Cable technician entered my home for the sixth time in two months, I realized that this certainly would have spelled serious trouble had it not been for my trusty new back up device. Before the Mi…
