Soup up Your Bathroom like a Boss

Morning routines could be such a pain in the butt, but that doesn’t mean there’s nothing you can do about it. Take your whole bathroom ceremonies for example: there’s always a way to make it more exciting. After all, mornings are when you set the tone for the day ahead of you, so why not make it as enjoyable as possible?

Awesome bathroom

Now, it might seem impractical and even dangerous to bring your precious gadgets into the bathroom, but believe it or not, there are pieces of wonderful technology out there that are especially made for our own bathrooms. And in our world today, it’s very easy for each and every one of us to get one. Here are a few:

Waterproof Bluetooth speakers

By now, we already know and accept it as fact that the age of wires is almost over: we’re living in a wireless world. And Bluetooth speakers are no exception to that. In fact, this is one of the most common accessories these days, especially if you’re looking for something to add to your bathroom. All you have to do is look for one that doesn’t fizzle out when it’s splashed with water, and that’s where models like the iDuck Wireless Waterproof Speaker come in. Aside from that, though, there are a lot of brands out there that provide you with a lot of options preference-wise. There’s the Braven BR-1, which provides some real quality audio and adequate protection from backsplashes and such.

 

Waterproof phones

Contrary to what some of you may think, not all smartphones are fragile little things that get broken at the slightest of scuffs. In fact, there are models out there that provide enough protection and are durable enough to withstand even water damage. The Samsung Galaxy S5, for example, may look like it’s too elegant to even be scratched, but it’s totally waterproof. Apart from that, you also have models like the Sony Xperia Z3 and M2 Aqua, which are just as water resistant.

Waterproof shower radios

You can always stream music or podcasts, but there’s just something about the radio that’s, well, timeless. And perhaps that’s also the reason that manufacturers have come up with a variety of waterproof radios you can take with you to the shower to enjoy some FM.

Aside from beign waterproof, these models are actually built for the exact purpose of being taken to the bathroom that some even include certain features like suctions that you can stick to a wall while you take that much needed R and R. Furthermore, these things have a mammoth of a battery lifespan, which can last more than 12 hours before having to recharge them. Plus, some models can even be linked up to your phone, which makes it a pretty versatile radio slash speaker unit.

Of course, these are all just accessories you can add to your bathroom. You shouldn’t forget that the point of it all is hygiene, and you’d need the best shower heads available for that.

How to Choose the Best Monitor for a Great Home Cinema Experience

Movies are one of the primary sources of entertainment in the modern world today, but more importantly, it’s a wonderful and innovative art form. So, it’s only right to have the best viewing experience in order to appreciate the grandiosity of the medium. As such, the world today allows us a variety of modes to choose from when it comes to how and where we want to enjoy our favorite cinematic masterpieces. Perhaps you’re the kind that makes it a habit to regularly visit the local theater and enjoy the current offerings; maybe you’re a channel surfer that likes to stay at home and see what’s on while you make a night out of it; or perhaps you prefer your movies to be watched from a computer screen, sent directly from your hard drive.

Monitor for Home Cinema

Personally, we here at Gamingbuff think the third option is the best. No offense to theaters and television, but there’s just something economical and convenient about having everything you need, from entertainment to professional tools, all in one device. And that’s where computers are able to get the edge in that department. Ah, but it can’t just be any computer; it’s too general a term. We’re talking about the full experience here, and we think that only desktop computers, especially custom assemblies, are the kind that allows you the maximum in terms of personalization and overall quality experience. No offense to laptops and even tablets, but these gadgets limit our view because of their relatively small size, which makes the whole movie experience somehow filtered.

So, with that being said, let’s look at how you can search for the best monitor for your home cinema experience. First and foremost, you will have to choose a size that suits your needs best. In doing that, all you have to think about is the number of people you think will regularly watch movies using the monitor of your choice. If it’s just you who will be usually enjoying movies this way, then a respectable screen of 24 inches will just be perfect for you (plus, a screen that size can accommodate a couple more people should you have company). If we’re dealing with groups, though, then your best bet will be something along the lines of 34” screens. And believe us, it’s a marvel to watch films at this size, regardless of the number of people in front of it!

Now, your viewing experience can be enhanced with other than a high screen resolution. For movies, this is not too big a concern, but it can still affect your viewing experience. Unlike video games, movies don’t necessarily have to rely on screen resolution in order to be enjoyed. For gaming, I recommend these monitors that have really high resolutions. You’ll see that the site contains a lot of information that could guide you in choosing the best unit not only for your home cinema, but for other purposes as well. So, don’t hesitate to contact them, as they’ll be more than happy to help you out!
