Philips-wireless-airplay

There are a lot of products lying around our homes and offices that we never quite needed but really, really wanted. A wireless speaker system for streaming music from our iPhones, Droids and BBs is pretty close to the top of the list. You could just unplug the speakers from your computer or load up Spotify or RDIO… but you already have apps for those so why not cut the cables? It’s especially hard not to rationalize when the speaker system in question looks like it was designed by Dyson like this Philips Fidelio system. If you have an iPhone, use the free Fidelio app and stream with AirPlay – while your iPod/iPhone/iPad charges. You’re not in the quiet if you have some other device, you just have to hook it up with a cable. It’s also battery powered, so you can literally take it with you if you want.

Laguiole-Oyster-Knife-IF2

While you can go all MacGyver and shuck oysters with a screwdriver or other household tool, we highly recommend you invest in a good oyster knife. Why? Well, for starters, it’s safer. The best oyster doesn’t taste so hot when you’ve got something sharp stuck in your palm. Secondly, it makes the process easier and a bit more refined. Laguiole is an iconic name in knife making and the French brand has you covered when it comes to shucking thanks to the Laguiole Oyster Knife. Made of 420 stainless steel and complete with a wood handle, the Oyster Knife measures 6 ¼” and makes easy work of even the toughest shell. You just need to supply the cocktail sauce.
