Close Shave

Is it just me, or is there a distinct lack of gadget news lately? Sure, Engadget and the like have a steady stream of ‘company X releases DVD player Y’, and the usual 50 or so Korean cameraphones per day; but the real news seems slow. Perhaps it’s the quiet before the next-gen storm at E3?

Anyway, on a totally different note, MSNBC had an elightening article about how to get the perfect shave, including a nice link to some shaving gadgetry. Call me totally stupid, but with all the hype around amazing shaving gels, I’ve never thought to thoroughly wet my face before applying foam. Sure I make sure to shower first, but then I usually dry my face before foaming and shaving. I have to say that the slight modification of water then foam has made the world of difference.

Not sure if I’ll take the plunge down the $100 badger-hair shaving brush route though. There’s shaving, and then there’s OCD.

  1. Yep, we’re in sort of a quiet period right now. Last month was the big CeBIT and CTIA shows and next month is E3, so April is traditionally a pretty slow month for gadget news.
