    Philips AJ393517 Stereo CD Clock Radio
    Average Customer Review: 3.5 out of 5 stars
    list price: $69.99
    US | Canada | United Kingdom | Germany | France

    Editorial Review

    The Philips AJ393517 stereo CD clock radio is loaded with features thatwill ease you into the beginnings and endings of your day. The dual alarm can beset for two different wake-up times, and you have the choice of waking up toyour favorite CD, radio station, or beeper melodies. No matter what yourpreference is, the gentle-wake feature will gradually increase the volume toensure a gentle and certain awakening.

    The minimum and maximum alarm volumecan be set to your requirements. In addition, when waking to CD, the silent CDalarm start wakes you to the sound of music instead of to the sound of the CDdrive searching for the right track. The track is already preselected and readyto play.

    Still need a few extra minutes of sleep before starting your day?Then press the repeat alarm, which switches the alarm off for nine minutes. The24-hour alarm reset eliminates the need to manually reset the alarm after eachuse by automatically resetting the alarm function for the same time on the nextday.

    The weekend sleeper function makes sure that either one or both alarmfunctions are switched off during the weekends. This clock radio has a self- powered backup. In case of an interruption in power, the clock will hold thecurrent time and the alarm settings for three minutes. With the sleep/slumberfeature, you can listen to music while falling asleep without the worry ofhaving to turn off the radio. This feature will play up to 90 minutes of musicand automatically shut off. ... Read more

    1-0 out of 5 stars Great features, but not a good alarm!
    When I first bought this alarm clock, I loved it.I had returned six or more alarm clocks from the place I bought them because they were all lacking in fundamental features in one way or other. (Who wants to wake up to track 1 of a CD every time, really??!?Please Timex, hire some decent product developers!)

    So when I got this home, I was thrilled.I love the weekend sleeper, the alarms which can be set completely independently (including two separate CD tracks), and the built-in self-recharging backup battery!

    I even love the CD failover, when it works - if there's no CD in the drive, the alarm kicks in instead.The problem is, sometimes the CD will spin up and fail to play.I don't know why, it just sits and spins for 2 hours and doesn't play.But the alarm doesn't kick in either.So as an alarm clock, it's been a complete failure on several occasions.Like this morning.That's why I'm looking for a new alarm clock/cd player today.

    Oh, and if you turn the volume more than 2/3 of the way up (it's a very loud player, very nice), the CD will skip.A lot.Why don't they take a cue from the portable CDs and build anti-skip in?I don't know.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Button positions
    This would be a good alarm clock, escept for the button positions. For some reason the designer put the 24hour alarm reset button right next to the small snooze button. Everytime I tried to press snooze and get a few more minutes of sleep, I turned the alarm clock off.

    In the end I bought a funky rooster alarm clock with a huge snooze button and a chinese accent. It's weird, but it works great. This one has been relegated to the garage.

    It's a good radio; it's a good CD player; it's a good clock; it even looks cool, but it' not a good alarm clock.

    5-0 out of 5 stars VERY VERY VERY GOOD DEAL!!!
    I got the stereo today and I LOVE IT!The size is a bit big for a desktop radio, but the sound is crisp and clear.I like the fact that Philips added a bright backlight feature, which displays the time.If you're looking for a good cd/clock/radio, look no further! ... Read more

    PalmOne VIIx Wireless Handheld
    Average Customer Review: 3.5 out of 5 stars
    list price: $199.99
    US | Canada | United Kingdom | Germany | France

    Editorial Review

    When the Palm VII was first released, it garnered a lot of geek chic, thanks to it being the first handheld to include an integrated wireless modem. With more and more wireless handheld devices and peripherals entering the market (such as the RIM Blackberry and the OmniSky Minstrel modem for the Palm V), is Palm's wireless entry still a viable alternative? Definitely (but with a caveat or two).

    The Palm VIIx handheld has had its memory bumped up to 8 MB (from only 2 MB in the original Palm VII), and it includes all the practical features we've come to expect from Palm--the easy-to-learn (and use) Palm OS, a sharp screen with contrast-variable backlighting, and infrared beaming of information.

    But it's the wireless connectivity--and the ease and quickness of installation and connection--that really makes the Palm VIIx shine. You'll first need to add the Palm VIIx's two AAA batteries, which are also used to charge the modem's internal, rechargeable ni-cad battery. It takes about 70 minutes to fully charge the device. But that'll give you time to play around with the other Palm apps or practice your Graffiti writing skills.

    Once charged, we simply flipped up the radio transceiver antenna (which also turns on the screen) and connected to the Palm.net network in seconds. Then we set up our account and chose a monthly service plan--which reminded us that wireless ease doesn't come cheap. These plans range from $9.99 for 50 KB of information downloaded (and $0.20 per additional KB) to $44.99 for unlimited usage. The Palm.net site estimates that 50 KB equals about 150 downloaded Palm screens of information--which isn't that much if you're doing a bit of online shopping or checking of sports scores.

    The other important factor to remember is that you won't be able to view the entire Internet. The Palm VII connects only to certain sites that offer Palm Query Applications (or PQAs), which send Web Clippings instead of HTML. These Web Clippings are specially configured minipages that minimize both display requirements (to fit on the Palm VII's screen) and bandwidth usage. Thus, while we weren't able to view the day's English Premier League scores on Soccernet, we could read headlines at ABC News, get driving directions with MapQuest, and check airline flight status using Travelocity. (The Palm VII comes with 22 Web Clippings, but you can download more from www.palm.net/apps--from Merriam-Webster's online dictionary to a Starbucks locator.)

    E-mail was a snap using the included iMessenger app and the Palm.net e-mail address that we set up. This account won't hook up with an existing POP account, but there are several good third-party apps on the market that you can install to grab e-mail from your regular accounts.

    Ultimately, the Palm VIIx--and persistent wireless connectivity--isn't for everyone because of its online limitations to proprietary Web Clippings. But with a lot still in its favor--the robust Palm OS organizer environment, hassle-free activation, quick connection to the wireless network, easy e-mailing, and good nationwide coverage (featuring about 260 major metropolitan areas)--the Palm VIIx handheld is still king of the wireless jungle. --Agen Schmitz ...

    4-0 out of 5 stars Good, but a bit dated...
    I had one of these before replacing it with a Handspring Treo.If all you need is a PDA, and don't care too much about it being a mobile phone or not, this is a good unit.The screen is relatively easy to read, with a simple back-light option.Although its not color, the battery life is pretty good.Keep in mind that these units don't come with rechargeable batteries, so you will be using a lot of regular batteries here.I have seen some people hack the cradles for these to include a recharging facility, but its not stock standard.

    The good thing is the memory.8mb is a good amount of RAM for average PDA stuff, although I must say that 16mb is certainly better.But the fact that you can pick these units up for a song these days, and there is a healthy used market for them as others like me trade them in on up-market PDAs, there is no reason why for infrequent use, this isn't going to do the job.

    I'd pass on the Palm.NET option though.Although it is pretty decent to have it, its very expensive to keep and slow, slow, slow.Depending on the plan you get, you could be paying $... per month for high data volumes and with the availability of GPRS/GSM Internet through carriers like T-Mobile, Sprint, etc. it doesn't take long to justify spending more money on a current model Handspring Treo, etc.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome technology!
    I just ordered the Palm VIIx after going to Saturday brunch with a girl that brought her's along in order to check current movies listings and show times. She checked her email and weather reports (being that it was another rainy day in Seattle) and other stuff... I was utterly amazed at all that she could do from the breakfast table. As she was leaving to go to the bathroom (which lasted about 7 minutes) she said "go ahead and browse while I'm gone"... Seven minutes was all I needed to realize that I can no longer live without one of these babies... I went and purchased a Palm IIIxe from a local store and later realized that I did not have the same machine as her Palm VIIx. I really like the Palm IIIxe but since it does not have wireless internet, I decided to order one on Amazon.com at a much better price than local stores. I gave the Palm IIIxe to her daughter today and she was very grateful since she's never had her own PDA and her mother is always using her own. WORDS OF WISDOM - You can't be too critical of PDA's. I don't expect for it to do what a 1GHz Dell laptop or my dual Pentium III Xeon server will do... I only need the PDA while I'm out of the house or office and want to be able to check my email and surf the net until I can get home to my high performance machines.

    5-0 out of 5 stars OLDER MODEL... BUT STILL A GREAT MACHINE
    First and foremost, ignore any bad reviews you may see here about this item.I've had my Palm VIIx for a year and a half and it's been terrific.Every once in a great while I'll hit a glitch with the thing, but they've always been extremely easy to resolve.All in all, I've found this item to be a tremendous time saver and it has become an integral tool.

    This is also a good buy (with it's low price) for those of you who are thinking of purchasing the Palm Zire Handheld but want more features than it offers.The Palm VIIx is currently (as of 11/24/2002) priced about $10 cheaper than the Zire.It's only priced lower because it's a model from two years ago and Palm is pushing their newer versions. ...

    Casio CD312SBBE CD-Cassette Boombox With AM/FM Radio (Blue)
    Average Customer Review: 3.5 out of 5 stars
    list price: $59.99
    US | Canada | United Kingdom | Germany | France

    Editorial Review

    The sleek, rounded corners, striking silver finish, and compact body ofthe Casio CD312SBWE boombox are just the beginning for this snappy little rig.The Casio CD312SBWE also sports a top-loading 24-track programmable CD player,front-loading cassette deck, and AM/FM radio.

    In our tests, we found that the cute little music maker works well either on thego when powered by 6 D cells or at home with the supplied AC cord. It's also gotone of the cleanest designs we've seen, with a symmetrical layout and clearlymarked functions. Our only gripe in this department concerns the minijack forheadphones, which is located on the back of the unit's.

    That said, this is a good-sounding boombox--with clear vocals, a respectabletreble, and a sonic presentation that's bigger than you might think. Radioreception is just average (the mono switch helps with hard-to-get stations), butthe CD player works quite well and is a snap to program. The cassette deck isfine for playback, but the lack of a tape counter and noise reduction of anykind makes all but the most casual recording a bit of a pain. There are also notone controls, but there is an electronic bass boost, which we recommend leavingon at all times; otherwise the sound is too thin.

    For the money, Casio's CD312SBWE manages to combine decent sound and basicfeatures in a sweet little package that's also fun and easy to use. --WayneGarcia

    3-0 out of 5 stars A decent boombox....
    The only thing that really lasts the longest is the radio.The CD player lasts a long time,but after a year or 2,it gets so it skips on CDs.The tape player is the most disappointing of all-after 2 months,it starts eating your cassette tapes.I guess they're making cassette players [poorly] these days....

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great little Boombox for the price!
    Everything operates perfectly for me. Great station selectivity
    and station separation on AM/FM. Nice sound for size.

    The boom box is worth its money. I really enjoy this.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Perfect for a dorm room or your den.
    I was actually surprised by this lamp when I first took it out of the box. It is extremely well made very sturdy and good looking as well. I use it to study at my desk or when I read in bed and I haven't had a problem with poor lighting since. Since I have been using this cool desk lamp I wonder how I was able to read at all with the poor lighting situation I use to have. Standing alone this lamp with a 40-watt bulb lights up half the room and is totally more than enough to read by even when it's the only source of light!

    The brass base and arm looks really nice with the blue glass and the height of the lamp is enough so that you have plenty of light even if your book isn't directly under it, this is an excellent buy. You won't be disappointed at all!!

    4-0 out of 5 stars Beautiful, but...
    This lamp looks pretty nice. The shade is beautiful. While, one big short of this lamp is that you cannot adjust the position by bending the arm. The brass arm looks nice, but it is fixed. It would be better if the switch could control the intensity of light. This switch is just for on/off.


    5-0 out of 5 stars What a Beautiful Lamp!
    Everyone who's entered my dorm room has commented on this great lamp! I was worried about the lamp being flimsy or too light but its perfect. The base and stem are quite sturdy and the lamp shade is heavy glass. The inside is white and the outside blue so the lamp looks as if it were glowing without casting a blue light. This is a great reading lamp! ... Read more

I can keep abreast of my appointments, and be able to joint down notes without the threat of loosing papers because they came apart from its binding.

    Editorial Review

    It's still hard to get a triple word score, the tiles are still made of wood, there's only one "X" in the whole box, and family feuds are increasing exponentially. But after 50 years, Scrabble has had a face-lift: a swivel base allows the board to turn so players don't have to work upside down, a plastic grid helps keep tiles in line, and a handy bag stores the letters when they're not in use. The premise hasn't changed at all--two to four players battle it out to make high-scoring words from seven little letters--so choose a dictionary before play begins to avoid ugly confrontations. --Lynne Sampson ...

    4-0 out of 5 stars Deluxe not like the old Deluxe
    I purchased the new deluxe Scrabble game for my sister in January and was terribly disappointed in how it was made.We both love to challenge each other in Scrabble matches when we are together and her game really needed to be replaced.I was embarrassed at how cheaply the new game is.For the wonderful game that it is, I do believe they could have made a much better version of the turntable model for the price I had to pay for it.Hope they will improve it soon.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Fantastic fun for those who love words and word play...
    This along with the official scrabble dictionary is the perfect gift for those who love scrabble. It has a TURNTABLE, that is all I need to say.The turntable makes this so much more enjoyable as it is so easy to manuever it to view it straight on in front of you. I wish the game were a bit more substantial but it is a vast improvement over a traditional set because of the turntable as you just store everything in the base. ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Perfect digital camera for kids!
    Our son loves this camera and we do too.The price is amazing (new priced at $10 - $15 in the Marketplace or eBay), it has auto flash, and easy to download pics to the computer without wasting money on developing.The company did go out of business, but there is an amazing following on the internet and it is easy to find up-to-date software to download pictures (most of it FREE).The quality of the pictures is not great (outdoor pictures are pretty good; indoor with flash are over-exposed) but better than expected for the price.The camera is also powered by a 9v battery so no special digital camera battery needed.I really can't say enough good things about this camera.It is the perfect way to introduce your children to photography without investing a lot of money.

    I know the company has went out of business and the cd is useless but somebody has created the site http://www.thejamcam.com/ for all the drivers and software. This camera is a good starter camera and definently recommended. One bad thing about it is that it drains up the 9v battery quickly while using the flash frequently.
