    Waldorf Astoria, Shanghai: the ultimate gadget hotel

    By 17 October 2011

    It's not every day that you open the door to your toilet to watch it automatically opening its door for you, but then it's not every day you find yourself staying at the Waldorf Astoria in Shanghai. Being a journalist can be a pretty good gig from time...

    Panasonic ES-RF41 4-blade Wet and Dry shaver hands-on

    By 18 July 2011

    Currently there seems to be an ever-growing trend to persuade men that they need to spend more time, and indeed hard cash, grooming themselves. Now more than ever men are being exposed to the same marketing that women have had to endure - it is now common...

    Remington Titanium 360 F5790 shaver review

    By 27 November 2009

    It was with some trepidation that the Remington F5790 was received as previous attempts with electric shavers have always proved rather ineffectual when compared to the close cut you'd receive from their wet counterpart. Seeing as this review conveniently...

    PowerPlus Piranha wind-up electric shaver review

    By 13 May 2009

    Hand crankable bike lights, torches, radios and phone chargers are one thing, but a wind-up electric shaver? We have, quite literally, put our neck on the line to see if the Piranha from PowerPlus can really cut it. With two flexible rotary heads, a pop-up...

    Panasonic ES8249 Pro-Curve shaver review

    By 8 May 2009

    When we think high-tech shavers we generally imagine a Braun or Philips, but can Panasonic’s top of the range wet and dry, the ES8249, cut it with the big boys? From a design point of view the ES8249 ticks many of the right boxes; it’s silver and...

    Oral-B Vitality Precision Clean electric toothbrush review

    By 2 December 2008

    When it comes to electric toothbrushes, your options tend to break down into two major players: Philips with their Sonicare range, and Oral-B. Interestingly you’ll find claims on the boxes of both that they are the most recommended brand by dentists...

    Braun Series 3 390cc shaver review

    By 11 November 2008

    Braun has long been a force in shavers. The 390cc sits at the top of the Series 3 line of shavers, offering a flexible twin foil type arrangement and a host of features, without reaching to the extremes of the Series 5 and Series 7 models. But can it...
