NOVERO TheTalkyOne Bluetooth Speakerphone: Stylish Hands-free Living

Last year we reviewed Novero’s TheFirstOne as one of the most stylish bluetooth headsets on the market. This year Novero is unveiling yet another stylish solution for hands-free living– TheTalkyOne. Yeah, their product names are a little quirky, but TheTalkyOne’s feature are far from it.

TheTalkyOne is a minimally-designed Bluetooth speakerphone, about the size of an iPhone that lets you make calls and stream music anywhere that you are – in the car, home or office. It is ideal for anybody that needs the added flexibility in their digital life, but doesn’t want to settle for the usual unattractive (or just down right ugly) digital products.

perfect for car use, especially with the many
“no cell-phone while driving” laws

F E A T U R E S:
Crystal Clear Sound: TheTalkyOne uses best-in-class DSP, and the latest in noise reduction and echo cancellation technology

Bring Your Music with You: TheTalkyOne streams music in multiple file formats from your phone or Bluetooth enabled MP3 player, through stereo music streaming (A2DP 1.2)

Text-to-speech functionality allows TheTalkyOne to distinctly read text messages and announces the names of callers, if supported by your phone

Simple Pairing with Multipoint technology: Connect easily with 2 mobile phones. If traveling with a passenger, calls can be taken from either handset

Go Anywhere: TheTalkyOne is compatible with all major Bluetooth phones, and can be effortlessly mounted in any car, home or office interior with its versatile clip

It’s only $139, and you can get it here.

Summary: As usual the guys kept it classic in traditional tuxedos and bow-ties. Robert Downey Jr. was on of the few who stood out wearing blue-lensed wayfarers, a blue bow-tie, and Lanvin sneakers. If I had to give my choice for the most well-groomed it would probably go to Ryan Reynolds, he looked damn-near flawless and exemplified the “grooming trend” of the perfectly trimmed, light, 5 o’clock shadow.

Winners for the 2010 Academy Awards:

Best Picture: The Hurt Locker
Best Director: Kathryn Bigelow, ‘The Hurt Locker’
Best Actress: Sandra Bullock ‘The Blind Side’
Best Actor: Jeff Bridges,’Crazy Heart’
Best Supporting Actress: Mo’nique, ‘Precious’
Best Supporting Actor: Christoph Waltz, ‘Inglourious Basterds’


(Front L-R) Director Kathryn Bigelow, screenwriter Mark Boal and producer Greg Shapiro, and (rear L-R) actors Jeremy Renner, Brian Geraghty and Anthony Mackie accept Best Picture award for ‘The Hurt Locker’ onstage.

Designer Sneakers: Lanvin, Prada, Louboutin, Armani, Gucci, Burberry, and more.

Just in case some of you guys aren’t familiar with the styles, I’ve posted a few designer sneakers below.

Jimmy Choo Sneaker Collection + The Rise of Men’s Designer Sneakers

Lanvin, Prada, Louis Vuitton, Louboutin, and now Jimmy Choo. The market for designer men’s sneakers is evolving at a rapid pace. In such an unstable economy, is this a wise move? Well, Louis Vuitton’s collaboration with Kanye led their shoes to be sold out… yeah $800-$1200 pair of shoes were sold out in a matter of days, some even sold out in hours (many were pre-ordered though).

Shoe connoisseurs are still hawking them on eBay for up to $2,000… yeah, pretty crazy. So, clearly there is a demand for these high-end sneakers.


Louboutin Spiked-Hi Top Sneaker, $835

With producers like Pharrell and Swizz Beatz tweeting about and wearing the new men’s Louboutin shoes, Christian has had alot of great publicity. I’m just curious about the overall sales of his studded shoes so far (if anyone has an idea, feel free to comment). And I really want to get a look at his complete collection because so far it seems to be never-ending, lol.


3 of Jimmy Choo’s high-top sneakers

Jimmy Choo will be adding his fancy kicks to his pre-fall 2010 collection. There will be 8 styles, 5 high tops and 3 low tops. The materials for Choo’s sneakers will range from suede to patent leather to snakeskin. And the price? $470 to $630. That’s a few hundred lower than his luxury sneaker counterparts, so the price is definitely more economy conscious (in terms of luxury footwear)… But I guess the question is: will the lower price mean he’ll sell more? maybe even sell-out faster? Or will his lower price tag just leave him with lower profit margins? Only time will tell. The Jimmy Choo sneaker collection will be available to purchase online in May.

What do you guys think about the rise in men’s designer sneakers? Which ones are your favorite? Are you willing to buy them or will you stick to your $50 Chuck Taylors, $100 Supras, and $150 Jordans?
