Philips O’Neill SHO8801 The Snug headphones specs


Philips O’Neill SHO8801 The Snug headphones - as I saw these on sale at eBay today I decided to give it a closer look at see what are these interesting headphones all about.
First of all I should mention they have really nice cool design, this particular model is called Black Ice and it really looks nice. But headphones aren't about looks, they are all about sound quality.
Philips O’Neill headphones
Philips O’Neill SHO8801 The Snug headphones
Philips on-ear headphones deliver the perfect combination of DJ-quality sound, flawless fit, and sporty urban style. With cool black graphics, The Snug features a tough, tangle-free cable, reinforced aluminum connectors, premium audio quality, and soft, noise-isolating ear cushions to prove there's tons of substance behind all that style. Perfect for anyone who refuses to stay in one place, The Snug has a durable, flat-folding design, just throw it in your bag and rest assured that nothing will crush these super-tough headphones.

Another interesting thing about the Philips O’Neill SHO8801 headphones is the price. They are offered for less than £20 which is a very good price for a product like this one.

These headphones are built to last. Unlike headphones with plastic cables, The Snug is constructed with a flexible, tangle-free fabric cable that won't bunch up and disrupt your listening experience. Cable stress relief means that if the cable gets caught, it will disconnect without pulling on your headphones or listening device, a great feature for active users. For even greater protection, strong aluminum connectors reinforce the audio jack to prevent breakage.

Amazon Kindle Fire HD review at For consumers blog

Amazon Kindle Fire HD review - the new Amazon tablet hits the market these days and the interest is huge so far. We suspect there are going to be some delays with most deliveries of the 7-inch Amazon Kindle Fire HD as many sellers are taking pre-orders which won't be shipped on time.
So what is the new Kindle Fire HD all about. First of all we should mention that there will be few different Kindle Fire HD tablets. Three different versions of the new Amazon tablet will be available from 14 September. One of them will have a 7-inch screen and the other two will be equipped with 8.9-inch displays. The operating system for these is Amazon's OS based on Android 4.0 with plenty of interesting and useful applications specially developed for the Kindle Fire HD tablet.

How to remove Facebook timeline

How to remove Facebook timeline

Facebook timeline, is it possible to remove or disable one of the most controversial Facebook features ever?


How to remove/disable Facebook timeline - OK so many of you have their profiles in Facebook updated with the obligatory timeline design which most of you don't approve at all.
Facebook admins promised that all profiles in the social network will be upgraded to Facebook timeline no matter if you like it or not. That is what's happening right now, almost all profiles are converted to this new design.
How to remove Facebook timeline
Facebook timeline can't be removed
So why is the FB timeline so hated by almost everyone?
I can only assume that most Facebook users got used to the old functional design which finally was working all right and don't want any more changes to their private social network. The new multimedia design of the timeline doesn't suit everybody's tastes and many people are complaining. I am going to be honest with you - there is no way of removing the Facebook timeline. Probably Mark Zuckerberg will keep on updating the new design but it is here to stay for quite some time.
There is a small trick that can soften the effect of the new timeline. There is an application that makes the timeline looks like FB wall with just one column but it is still the same multimedia info design. That is the only way that I am aware of and I think this is the only way possible to manipulate your public profile on Facebook.
Good luck everyone and enjoy your social life outside the Net more.
