Remote Control For The Not-So-Lazy Guys

Universal Remote ControlYou know you need to get off the couch to change the channel, well now you will want to! Introducing the ultimate in handheld / wall mounted remote controls! The newly minted Universal Remote Control KP-900 does both; mounts on the wall, or unsnaps from its mount to boldly go where you go.

The true couch potatoes will hate it, but the guys who like a little exercise, not to mention cool gadgets, will want it. When using Universal Remote Control KP-900, you take your pick. Mount it on the wall or just leave it at the couch. If you choose the first one, you need to stretch a bit by snapping it in and out of the wall mount from time to time. But if you don’t keep it somewhere, you’ll get crazy (even lazy) finding if it gets lost. For the Ladies out there – this is the ideal way to get your man moving – just mount it our of reach so he has to get up – and be sure and ask him for a cup of coffee while he’s up!

It takes a moment getting your fingers used to the keypad, but you’ll quickly be able to switch between Saturday games faster than ever. Its LCD shows the activities selected in its mini screen, making it adaptable to loads of different hardware, and it is pretty very easy to use. It comes with software that makes setup easy. So, configuring your home theater and the electronics in your living room will hassle free. Who knows, maybe you can every set it up to stop the dog from barking and the push of a button!

Toshiba 26HL47 REGZA LCD HD TV–The Cure for the Common Cathode

The Toshiba 26HL47 REGZA LCD HDTV is one gorgeous TV! Priced below 700 dollars, the 26HL47 is inexpensive compared to other LCD televisions on the market. Yet this flat panel display uses LCD technology so it is much less susceptible to onscreen burn-in and consumes less energy (and produces less heat) than Plasma TVs.

It’s about that time, folks: when the year comes to a close, and your old worn-out TV starts to look its age. But what can you do about it? Over the next couple of days, I’ll show you some flat panel TV options from the extremely budget conscious to the stuff your dreams are made of.

High-Def DVD Formats Multiply over Weekend

High-Def is here whether you like it or not. Luckily, in the good ‘ol USA we have fairly decent selection of HD programming already – while other areas of the world still have none, even the EU has a serious shortage. When it comes to buying movies in High-Def, you currently have two options: BluRay and HD-DVD. Competing formats reminding me of the VHS vs Beta days of Video Tape.

Over the weekend, two announcement were made regarding new formats of High Def DVDs. The first to be announced should be a consumer favorite – lower cost players, lower cost media. Called the ‘HD-VMD’ – this high-def versatile format uses red lasers like standard DVD and CD players – lowering costs dramatically and only a bit over that of current DVD media and players. With a set-top player expected to be under $200, this new format may be a late starter – but big winner in the High Def DVD arena.
