Philips SHD9100 – Wireless headphones never looked so stylish

Philips SHD9100 – Wireless headphones never looked so stylish

I've got a pretty decent pair of headphones that I use when I feel like zoning out into my own little world while listening to my music very loudly. Yes, I'll probably be deaf by the age of 35, but I've come to terms with that. The worst thing about my headphones is that they only have a 3-foot cord. If my PC didn't have a connector on the front for them, I'm pretty sure I wouldn't be able to use them. What I wouldn't give for a really nice pair of wireless headphones such as the new ones from Philips.

White Spaces Coalition “Cause the FCC Won’t Let Me Be”

So, as a reminder, there is a government mandate that analog television signals are to cease as of a February 2009. That means that all of the wireless spectrum that was previously allotted to this purpose will become open for business if you will.

Well, almost as soon as that mandate was made, just about all of the major players in the technology world grouped up and formed the White Spaces Coalition. The companies that are included are as follows: Microsoft, Google, Dell, HP, Intel, Philips, and Earthlink.

Philips tentative answer to AppleTV’s streaming media

Philips tentative answer to AppleTV’s streaming media

I'm not going to make the obvious "borrowing of industrial design" comment, but Philips partially-unveiled answer to the AppleTV looks to be sticking a little too closely to established media streamer form for my liking.  Inside the brushed-aluminium box is a 40GB hard-drive, while you can plug in larger hard-drives round the back, as well HDMI, optical audio and a WiFi connection hidden inside.

Philips helps consumers go green

Philips helps consumers go green

Lately companies have put out more and more products that are considered green. Philips has now released the Green Tick logo to help consumers recognize products that are a bit more environmentally friendly.

This logo is placed on products that are 10% better in comparison to other products on the market. However, they only have to be better in one of these five categories: hazardous substances, energy efficiency, weight, packaging and recycling. Although it is great that Philips is taking a step in the right direction, the logo does not mean that the product is completely green. It just means in comparison to other products it is the lesser evil.

Although there are not all that many products with the Green Tick logo, Philips intends to bring up that number by the end of this year.

Latest Pronto remote is ‘Lite’ in name only

Latest Pronto remote is ‘Lite’ in name only

As remote controls go, we all know there're different leagues that they aspire to.  Some low-end handsets are content with replacing a crusty old faithful; others add multi-device control and perhaps a little LCD display.  And then you have the big league, the remotes that actually border on Mensa challenges; Philips' NX ProntoLite easily falls into that category.

 

Introducing the Phillips Longneck

Introducing the Phillips Longneck

Don't you just hate notebooks that look and act just like all of the rest? Apparently the guys over at Phillips are tired of just that.

They have developed a laptop that stands out, or at least the monitor stands out; it is the aptly-named Longneck. The 12-inch display is movable and extendable so you can adjust it to the most ergonomic position. It is powered by an Intel Core Duo, 1GB of RAM and a 100 GB hard drive.
