I remember when I first started working in this industry, one of my first jobs was to review a pair of wireless RF headphones from some low-end Chinese manufacturer. They were terrible. Interference that manifested itself as random bursts of static blasting through the headphones, they showcased both the need to buy better quality, and the shortcomings of RF technology as a wireless audio standard. These new Sennheisers are all digital though, which should mean static is a thing of the past.
I hate cordless phones. So when Gizmodo reader ournextcontestant asked why Obama was using a corded phone instead of a cordless phone in this photo, I felt it was our duty to explain.
We all know that home phones are disappearing into that wonderful void known only as obsolescence, but until all the baby-boomers and their tech-fearing ways die off, we’re stuck with companies trying to come up with different ways to make DECT phones exciting for old people. Which is probably why this Telstra Colombo cordless phone is both a) named after an old, decrepit detective with a face in a permanent state of strainage and b) they made it red (although it also comes in black).
Logitech is updating one of its most popular mouse and keyboard sets, the Wave Cordless Desktop with a slightly touched up Wave wireless keyboard–new paint and a longer, ridiculous three-year battery life–and a whole new mouse, the MX1100, which is a mutant hybrid of the oooold MX1000 and the more recent Revolution mice.
The Vtech IS6110 is the little cordless telephone that could. There is a lot of functionality packed into one tidy little package. It is a fully featured DECT 6.0 cordless phone that includes a full QWERTY keypad and lays claim to being the first cordless phone to deliver instant messaging capabilities. All you do is plug the base station into your PC and you will be able to roam around your house instant messaging to your heart’s content.
