Philips Norelco SensoTouch3D model 1250X Review
Just in time for the holidays, the Philips Norelco SensoTouch 3D 1250 makes a great holiday gift for style-conscious men.
The Philips Norelco SensoTouch 3D 1250 electric razor ensures little pressure and fewer strokes are needed to get smooth skin. The three-dimensional GyroFlex component allows the shaver to perfectly follow the unique contours of the face and the UltraTrack shaving heads pivot around, tilt inward, and flex outward to adjust seamlessly to every curve of the face and neck, facilitating a faster shave.
The NBA Playoffs are in full swing and they’ve been airing these great commercials (see below). I’m lovin one in particular about “Staying Focused.”
Men usually get a bum rap from women for not being able to multi-task. Even if that is true, is it a bad thing?
Don’t get me wrong I’m just as guilty of having Gmail, Facebook, Twitter, Outlook, and Excel open all at the same time and toggling back and forth like a pin-ball. But I know when I really want to or have to get something done I need to resist all the evil time sucks of the Internet and just plow through. Continue reading »

We’ve talked about why we like Boxee before here on Ploomy. At the Consumer Electronics Show (CES), Boxee has just unveiled one of my favorite pieces of hardware coupled with one of my favorite pieces of software.
What is the Boxee Box?
Boxee is the best way to enjoy entertainment from the Internet and computer on your TV. Boxee is launching their IPTV set-top box powered by the Nvidia Tegra 2. This is the big brother to the Tegra that powers the Microsoft Zune, and several other upcoming Windows Mobile 7 phones.
Rather than using the traditional content provider model, Boxee is a rather unique IPTV solution in that they are a portal to content providers. This is great because it allows for almost any video content on the Internets to be accessed. Continue reading »
If you’ve ever had to sign a birthday card for a co-worker by passing around a “manila envelope”, then you know what a silly process it is. Most of the time the recipient knows it’s coming and it’s really just a formality.
This is why you’ll like GroupGreeting.com, a free service that allows you to create a digital group card that multiple people can sign and share from anywhere in the world.
By creating a group greeting card, you can have the whole office, team or group of friends sign a card for an individual without having to pass around a physical card. It’s very much like an ecard, but what makes it different is you can create one card and have everyone in the office sign it (even if they are in different locations). Continue reading »
I’ve never been a fan of games made in conjunction with a movie, but a few weeks ago I was tapped to review GI JOE The Rise of Cobra the game and couldn’t help but be excited.
You must understand though that I grew up in the eighties and so for me GI JOE represents not only countless childhood cartoon watching, but also it’s a chance for the powers that be (studio heads and game makers) to redeem themselves after having already thoroughly destroyed the Transformers franchise.
After 30 minutes of playing:
After watching the game intro, I already knew I was in trouble. The graphics were dull, blocky and showed lots of visible jagged staircasing (and this is on my 60″ Sony with full 1080p). Just for fun I loaded up COD 4 and Killzone to compare quality and it was night and day. The difference is so glaring, but again I remind myself that I am comparing apples to oranges and reset my sights accordingly. Continue reading »
Did you know?
“74% of girls agree that hair is one of the first things they notice about a guy.”
National Survey of 2,500 girls 18-24 conducted by StrategyOne June and July 2008.
AXE, the popular grooming line which you’ve come to know now has a line of AXE Hair care products aimed at giving you “girl-approved hair.” The line includes 5 new shampoos, a conditioner, and styling products that are designed to take your hair care to the next level.
Since we always like to give you the heads up on all things men, here’s the lowdown. Continue reading »
Cheaters, the reality show which has exposed so many cheaters over the years, is celebrating their 10th anniversary season.
To celebrate with them, we’ve asked the Cheaters’ host Joey Greco, to kick some knowledge our way with his Top 10 Signs She May Be Cheating On You.
While there may not be a definitive sign other than being told, ‘I’ll be busy tonight, I’ve got a date’, these signs, while perhaps contradictory, are more indicative when viewed in combination with other behaviors. Continue reading »
At long last, the G.I. JOE The Rise of Cobra movie is out this week. Reviews so far have been sparse as Paramount hasn’t let the critics see the flick. Along with the movie release, Electronic Arts is releasing its G.I. JOE game version simultaneously. The game will be available across multiple platforms, including Playstation 2 & 3, Xbox 360, PSP, Nintendo Wii & DS.
I really hope G.I. Joe the movie or game does not suck. I am still trying to recover from how Transformers was trashed and hope GIJ does not suffer the same fate with the movie or game.
As soon as we get our hands on our game copy, we’ll put a review together.
This past week at work sucked for me. This is why this past weekend I was excited to try out the Nintendo Wii’s latest boxing title, Ready to Rumble Revolution (by Atari). It would allow me to relieve some stress and have some fun punching somebody’s lights out.
With the latest incarnation by Atari, Ready to Rumble Revolution makes its way onto the Nintendo Wii console. If you were a fan of Midway’s original Ready to Rumble Boxing, or the follow up Ready to Rumble Round 2, there is definitely a striking resemblance. Both those previous games had a sizable following and accounted for countless hours of button mashing good times.
Here are my quick thoughts on the game.
From time to time people send us cool websites to check out and most of the time they are the same tired web 2.0 type stuff. I don’t write about all of them, but sometimes I get sent a link to something pretty refreshing and this site fits into that category. It makes no fuss about being nice and is named Get the F*&k Outta Here with that Bullsh*t.
The name G.T.F.O.H.W.T.B.S is perfect since the material thus far is so straight up and makes no apologies for ripping a new one to all who read it. I found myself nodding to many of the rips on people and wondering to myself, did he just say what I think he said? Well he did.
The two authors have something interesting going on here and in a funny way they are just delivering the truth. Who can ask for more?
Here is an excerpt from one of their posts:
“To all the girls I’ve loved before, who’ve traveled in and out my door…
Dedicated to all the girls I’ve loved, f*&ked, kissed, fingerbanged, casually dated, seriously dated, sorta hung out with, groped, ate out, went out on one date with and never called back, freaked at a club, got head from, etc… Please, do us both a favor and delete my cell number.
I’m not gonna pick up and shoot the sh*t with you. Your text messages ain’t cute. You’re probably just being yourself and the real you must annoy the crap outta me. Please move on and leave me the f*&k alone.
I’m sure there are a lot of you out there who have men or women from your past, and that’s where they need to stay, in your past! Don’t get me wrong, there might be some females that you used to…”

Santa was a little late this year for me, but the big guy did come through. I recently got a copy of Activision’s newest World War II shooter, Call of Duty: World at War.
Although the game will be very familiar to fans of Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare (uses the same game engine), this version is anything but just a reskinning of its predecessor. There are new enemies, weapons, maps, modes, challenges and more.
Students of history know that the battles on the Pacific and European fronts were some of the most brutal in warfare history and Call of Duty: World at War reflects that. It’s a bit more grittier and altogether more chaotic. Having the likes of Kiefer Sutherland and Gary Oldman who lent their voices to the title yelling orders at you was great in a weird as well.
Things we liked about Call of Duty: World at War
- The ability to play the campaign in either single-player, two-player (split screen) or four-player (online co-op) mode was a very welcomed addition.
- Vehicle mode – Maybe it reminded us of playing Ikari Warriors back in the day, but there is something about being in a “tank” that will never get old.
- The flamethrower (aka blowtorch) was a nice weapons upgrade that we had heard a lot about. It is indeed the signature weapon in this installment. It took a few uses to get the hang of it, but after that it was easily the weapon of choice. There are also molotov cocktails which were typical, but cool nonetheless.
- Zombie mode. If you remember only one thing from this review, just remember that Zombie mode rules. You have to beat the game once on any level to unlock, but trust us, it’s worth it. The first couple rounds you’ll think the zombies are dumb and slow (because they are), but as you progress the Zombies get faster, have more entry points and become that much harder to kill. If you’ve ever had nightmares of being chased or attacked by zombies, you will find it pure entertainment purchasing new weapons and defending yourself against these zombies.
- If you are familiar with Halo’s “Skulls,” you’ll appreciate the Deathcards which are tucked away in the campaign which unlock certain modes and cheats.
