  • Samsung "Touch of Color Series #7" HDTV
      This television has a "touch of color" around the perimeter allowing you to incorporate it into the color scheme of your room. The cool factor takes yet another step up with the built in RSS feed screen that can be pulled up over whatever you're watching transparently to give you info like weather, sports scores, news and more.

  • Samsung DUO High Def DVD Player
      OK, so by now you probably heard that the war is somewhat over between which format is going to dominate the next generation of DVD playback market. This means to me that I can get an entire DVD collection of HDVDs, the seeming looser in the battle, for a good price! With my new plethora of movies in sight, I also want a player that will be able to play the winner's format, Blu-ray, and last me for years to come. The DUO plays HDDVDs, BluRay discs as well as regular DVDs!

  • Zoombak GPS Locator For Dogs and Cars
      GPS location for the important things in your life was a hot trend this year. Zoombak is a company that makes devices that tie together advanced GPS technology systems with your cell phone and satellites, to bring you extremely accurate and fast location information. Attach the device to a dog with the comfy pouch or place the pager-sized unit in your car. Go online and set up a safety zone. If the device goes outside of the zone you'll receive a text message saying that you've got some action! Get online and access a map that'll give you the devices' location within a 30 foot radius! You can also do an "on-demand" locate from your cell if you're not near a computer too!
