Although it looks nice, mounting a flat panel TV above your fireplace can take years off of its life if you aren't careful. Aside from possible smoke damage, your new LCD or plasma screen was built to run at a specific temperature (check your owners manuals for exact specs, but usually between 32-100°F), so watching a movie and building a roaring fire can actually damage the components inside your TV if it gets too hot.
Now that you're Mr. and Mrs., you'll want to invest in a few things for your new lives together. And where better to start than in the electronics department? I've talked at length about the benefits of having a small and compact camera around to capture great memories, and the Flip UltraHD, as well as the new (and oh-so-stylish) Olympus EP-1 fit the bill quite nicely.
Of course, the pair of LCD screens are a nice touch (a waterproof number for your bathroom, and a 42-inch model for your living room), and although the George Foreman Indoor/Outdoor Grill is pretty low tech, I think it's fit for any geek-chic apartment or house out there. May you enjoy your steaks well-done for many years to come!
Bathroom gadgets are so much fun, especially when you can take them in the shower! Here's another waterproof device that is sure to be a hit with gadget gurus. Featured on 7 Gadgets, this 8-Inch LCD Screen by Sharp comes with 640x480 resolution, an audio/video input for any kind of media source, and a waterproof remote. I can totally picture myself using it to watch all my favorite TV shows and movies while taking a bath. These LCD screens are priced around $240.
Thanks to TeamSugar user SweetPeasMom for sending us this very helpful tip! Now you can get the LCD screen on your digital cam spic and span without using harmful liquids or abrasive cloths.
"One of the best ways to clean the screen on your camera is to use a piece of scotch tape. Just dispense the tape, lay it across the screen and press it down, remove it, and any fingerprints or smudges will go with it!"
Also try using scotch tape to clean your keyboard- I promise it's quick and easy!
