I had to once again get into reading many many reviews and articles on the latest tech in tv to get up to speed before purchasing a new TV. Luckily I have a head start with regards to some of the keywords and knowing what would be more important than other very trivial details.
Had to say for example that on a tv for sale for £999 a plastic stand and bezel of a less than premium finish is not good enough mr Samsung !
Luckily I was into my thin flat screen tv bezel in a big way and anyone who gets that detail right has obviously got the rest right ? Well read on for I am about to elighten you on the

This will end up a long review and I shall keep coming back to report. To note I am a little annoyed already at the yellow sides - so this forces you to get good opaque bedding if you don't want yellow show through. Why ?
AKA The Clean 9 Review
When I first heard that the main ingredient of a detox was Aloe Vera I was intrigued as I had only ever seen this plant in use in the bath or shower !
I am one of the many sufferers of lower back pain caused by the muscles locking down on the spine. This is a catch 22 scenario and it can be very hard to get the muscles to let go and let all the juicses start flowing again, amazingly when that happens the relief comes as quickly and mobility is restored. If left untreated the scenario leads the sufferer to be very disabled.
The JBL pulse 2 bluetooth speaker is designed for great sound and practicality. It is also stylish going that extra mile in th trend of speakers being visual as much as audible.

It is priced at around $55 on Amazon, so it’s at a medium price range.

Schick Razor Trimmer

Do not confuse this with the series 7 in 1 kit which has the 3000 series label too! Possible confusion here and we have seen product manufactures use this to their advantage in the past..
This shaver is better. The 7 in 1 struggles to do anything particularly well. This shaver however seems to have one of the better motors and battery out there though still no we don't have a super duper one! The only criticism which is consistent with this is the accuracy at short lengths. So if this isn't why you are buying this as you are looking at lengths greater than 1-2mm say then the accuracy factor isn't a problem.
Really an amazing option for the money if you want to get the job done and are not afraid to have a few fiddles with a less than ideal 'tray' and charging scenario. If you can put up with that then you might find this ideal. It isnt for cutting your hair but can be used very well to trim a beard.
A specific and trendy style of camo can seen everywhere and so Queshark chose this style for their fishing series. I liked them so much I bought a pair and am sharing the review here.
The Beard Boss might be aptly named. After exhaustively going through underpowered rechargable trimmers this a replaceable battery (2 AAA included) operated shaver is dare I say Bossing It?
If your a runner like me and struggle with earbuds falling out then consider these. They have a rubber wing which as you can see in the image helps to pressure the earbuds so they don't move. I have used them myself and can attest that it works! Hooray finally earbuds can be mine..

I really didn't know what to call this. And depending on the title it changes if this is good or not. For eample if you say this is a clockwork radio then the main function is that and then it runs down too quick after cranking for a minute. But if you say charge it then it becomes a power bank and has a radio built in then its great. So you might say the crank is just for the LED torch function then it's taking on a different quality and use case scenario. So you have to be kind and realise what is supposed to be used for what. Read on..
We are adding to this listing to keep it updated with the latest keyboards from apple.

The shaver also includes an efficiency cap that helps you with less painful hair removal as well. This shaver is made with comfort in mind and is effective both wet and dry making it a super convenient choice.
The Remington brand is one of high quality at a cheaper price point. For instance, The Remington Electric Foil Shaver shown here is around $30 dollars on Amazon. It’s about at a medium price point, and it’s a good product for the price. On Amazon, it received an overall 4 star review based on over 200 customer reviews. This shaver has many features including Smooth Glide Technology.

This is one of the highest rated, more expensive hair removal systems/ shavers on Amazon. It’s more expensive for a reason, and here are some of the reasons why. The Braun Silk has more features than a typical electric shaver. The features include: a shaver head, a trimmer cap, a high frequency massage cap, a skin contact cap, a charging stand for an always charged device and a bonus facial brush. These features make it more than just a hair removal system. For instance, the facial brush can be used to clean your face of impurities and give you a facial at home. Also, the message cap can ease the pain of shaving by giving a nice sensation while you shave.
Trimming your beard is one thing, but grooming it is another. Most people just seem to trim their beard but the one who grooms it seems to stand out. That’s why beard grooming is an important aspect of every man’s life- especially the one who wants to get ahead! But for a perfect grooming, you need a perfect trimmer. That’s where BaByliss Beard Trimmer comes in. It’s just a fantastic trimmer with loads of features which are really hard to find on any other trimmer in this price range.
First of all, the trimmer has an ergonomic design which makes it easier to trim and allows you to get a perfect trim. Secondly, it comes with an Advanced Contouring Floating Head which tracks the curves of the face for a comfortable and accurate trim. Precision Engineered Cutting Blades give you a sharp and perfect trim. It also comes with Precise Motorized Length Control with precise 0.2 mm incremental changes.

It also supports both cord and cordless use which provides you with more versatility in styling. Now that we have discussed a lot about the product, let’s summarize the pros and cons of the BaByliss iStubble+ Beard Trimmer.
Beard grooming can sometimes prove tedious and expensive if you visit a barbers. But it is an important part of every man's life, so you have to do it.
Grooming your beard to suit your tastes (or your partners even ;)) takes time and patience. You also need the right grooming kit.
That's where we come in. Today, we are here to discuss an awesome beard grooming kit –the Remington MB4045 Beard Kit.
This is a fabulous product and provides a lot of features which makes it great value for money and a must buy for those who want excellent facial hair.
First of all, let's see what all do we get in the kit. So, you will get the following items in the Remington MB4045 Beard Kit:
Universal because you can sit any laptop on it but particulary matched to the brushed aluminum apple laptops like macbook pro or macbook air. The stand is good because it increase slightly the aount of desk space you have by having space under the laptop but for me I like that it lifts my laptop screen to very much the same level as my secondary monitor. If you are only using this laptop then combining this with a keyboard allows you to have a 'grown up' working setup. Higher monitor and separate keyboard feels much more relaxed. There are secondary benefits that allow a hot running laptop to get more circulation around it. So if your laptop runs hot then don't put anything under the stand.

Free up the way you listen to music with a portable bluetooth speaker. I review the Ultimate Ears Boom - one of the more expensive ones on the market but that simply seem more appealing than the rest. One of the less spoken of features is the mysterious logo showing IPX4 on the rear - this means that it can handle splashes and maybe even use in the shower ! I wouldnt need to go to those lengths but it clearly won't have an issue therefore with moisture - so long as it isnt extended contact with it.
EDIT Dec 2015- this is an older model now the amazon listing should be your first port of call for checking this new model out but really expect much of the same. This works out of the box in extending your XBOX ONE internal memory ! Awesome news indeed.
Older model review follows...[EDIT End]
I just took possession of my western digital 'MY PASSPORT' USB 3 portable hard drive. I got it for my Mac Book Air (MBA). I am very happy with the weight the size and its damn sexy. I went for blue. Its a 1TB model and it was pretty much plug and play the MBA spotted it needed formatting straight away and also defualt TIME MACHINE for me. Its wonderful being a part of the mac eco system. You must read more of this if you are in the market take advantage of my research as always and desire to get the best value and stye in products.
I will be contributing to this review as time permits. So far I am enjoying the rapid boot times given by SSD and am not feeling any heat issues. The screen seems to have been thought through in terms of the resolution as well, things dont appear too small. I couldn't decide if I needed the power of the i7 and probably will be using it at limited times for some video converting.
I needed something to transport / protect my functional uber stylish and practical Macbook Air 13 inch. After cruising past the long queue for the iphone 5 release in westfield I found a few cases and sleeves. And the one I was looking for the Knomo 13 inch envelope. Its double the average cost of most offerings but will proabbly look good next year when these others are looking grubby at least I'm justifying the premium price tag of 64.99.
