One of the latest devices […]

08/16/2011, I am quite sure that all of you have heard about the story of the boy who cried wolf – and perhaps police in Detroit have reached that numbed state since they recently announced that they will require proof of crime before they will actually head off to respond to burglar alarms.

07/11/2011, Smoke alarms are both a blessing and a curse. A curse when you’re cooking or toasting bread, and the minute your culinary creation gets slightly burnt, there goes the alarm. Jokes aside, smoke alarms can be lifesavers, notifying us in our sleep the minute smoke is detected, giving us time to quickly assess the situation and make a decision. However, there are times when you are out of the house, […]
07/08/2011, A while back we reported on a doorbell that would ring your cell phone whenever somebody pressed it, and allowed you to have a conversation with whoever was at the door.

Especially so if you have had a wild and wacky weekend that had you grooving away into the wee hours of the morning, sending your liver wave after wave of booze to process and detox while you down them shots with wanton abandon. For some, we would like […]
