Idea: Corded DECT phone

Philips DC255 DECT phoneI bought a new home phone this weekend. Two of the extra handsets from my Siemens Gigaset setup had given up after years of daily use, and since new add-on handsets are nearly impossible to find (and very expensive), I decided to go for an all new system. One thing I noticed was that it’s very hard to find anything really nice. When DECT was a new technology, getting a new phone was exciting. There were lots of models to choose from, and some of them were really sexy.

It may be the current recession, but all three stores I visited had the same bland, boring and cheap models. None of them offered anything special, and the only model with a decent color screen was gathering dust in the back of the display and had only a single handset.

Logitech MX400 corded laser mouse

Logitech MX400 corded laser mouseMy Logitech MX1000 mouse stopped working yesterday. The mouse pointer simply wouldn’t move any more, even though clicking did work. I guess it’s a sensor problem, so I’ll have to send it in for repair. The first Logitech mouse to fail me, in what I guess is ten years now. But with work piling up I needed a replacement asap. That’s why I got an MX400. As a backup. But after using it for a couple of hours I don’t think I’ll put it away when the MX1000 gets back.
