Wafer Thin Television

As part of my daily routine, I do some reading on the news online. And there’s one article that really caught my attention and it’s all about the wafer thin television. I remember the first time I saw the plasma TV in the mall. I was wondering where did they put the rest of the set because we are all know how the old TV model looks like, it’s so bulky behind the screen. I think this Sony XEL-1 is the next generation of plasma TV but it’s more skinnier than ever. It’s only eleven inch widescreen television and just less than an inch deep. It’s very stunning yet for sure it will make a big hole in my pocket.

A New Radar Detector for her Birthday?

When my hubby was working as a sales engineer, he drove as much as forty thousand miles a year or so. He had a radar detector because sometimes he would get behind schedule and had to drive fast to get to his next meeting on time. Now that he is retired and we have started working out of our home, he doesn’t need to be in a big hurry much anymore. He gave away his radar detector to his daughter who was having a lot of trouble getting caught speeding. That was a few years ago and that was not a great radar detector. His daughter’s birthday is coming up and maybe he should buy her a new radar system for her birthday. It would be a good idea to check to find out which is the best radar detector of 2012.

Installing New Printer

A few months ago we bought a new printer and we hadn’t installed it until now. Currently my husband is working on it so I can use it in printing the documents that need to be sent off before Christmas. The old printer still works but we needed to buy a new one because the color didn’t print very well and we wanted the documents to look better. It is still functional but we decided to give it away to one of our friends who doesn’t have one. I’m crossing my fingers that my hubby can get the new one running today so I can start printing.
