All you have to do is ask!

Category: Tech With Red

Introducing the ivee, a voice controlled talking radio brought to you by Interactive Voice Inc. Just say it and the iveealarm clock will tell you the time, alarm, temperature and allow you to select sleep modes and sounds. It also has a built-in digital FM radio which makes this the ideal alarm clock in anybody’s home or office.

You say “Hello ivee” and she listens allowing you to speak over 30 voice commands. Have you ever had trouble with setting your alarm clock in the past? Is the one you have ancient and looks like it should be in the movie Back to the Future? If so, this slick white base unit with a built-in nightlight works right out of the box. It has a 5 inch LED display which is easy to see from far away. For the snoozers out there, this clock features up to a 9 minute snooze time. In case of a power outage, the included round button cell battery will last for up to 100 hours so you will always wake up on time.

It features voice recognition technology power by NLP (Natural Language Processor) so there is no training required, just talk and ivee™ listens – all you have to do is ask.

Vtech - designed to fit your home and your life.

We have brought a series of VTech phone systems to you in the past. What remains constant through these offerings is the great value, unsurpassed quality and ease-of-use experience.

In this blog post, I’d like to explain DECT 6.0 technology and help you make an informed decision when purchasing your next cordless phone system. I firmly state to all those I know that you must only consider DECT 6.0 technology when it comes to buying a cordless phone system.

DECT is an acronym for Digitally Enhanced Cordless Telecommunication. It provides the best sound quality, security and range in cordless phones. This means that you get interference free crystal clear conversations and the phones will not interfere with your wireless networks and other electronic devices. You can protect yourself from identity theft with the digital security this technology offers. In simple terms, your call is digitized and encrypted, making it nearly impossible for someone to eavesdrop.

With VTech, all you need is one phone jack and you simply plug in the handsets. The phone jack cable comes in the package too. You are able to change the way you communicate in the home by using the Intercom feature so no more shouting, “Dinner time!”

The Shopping Channel

Currently, we are offering the VTech DECT 6.0 Digital Cordless 5-Phone System. This means - just like my parents Sam and Janice - you can put the phones in places you always wanted them. My mom has one in the laundry room, and one on her night table. My dad put one in the garage since he is now retired and spending a lot of time there and in the backyard gardening. Another unit is at the basement stairs so even if you are entering the home from the side door, you will always answer the phone on time. The last unit found a home in the kitchen, which means Janice never runs for the phone anymore, the way I remember she used to.

Tune in to watch us talk and learn about Vtech phone systems.

Shop, swipe & smile with the SmartSwipe

SmartSwipe PC Credit Card Reader is the world’s first personal credit card reader that attaches to your computer and allows you to swipe your card at your PC just like you would at a retail store. This product offers a truly safe online shopping experience. You have been warned - the future of online shopping will include Smart Swipe. Just image a world where you never again expose your credit card number over the internet meaning you never type in anything, you simply swipe, smartly with the SmartSwipe.

The Shopping Channel

Why use SmartSwipe? This answer is very easy friends. You may not know this but there are extremely sophisticated hacker programs waiting to steal your credit card information while you shop online. Sure you have antivirus and programs on your computer that help, but unknowingly, you may download malicious software onto your computer that makes is vulnerable to hackers. Identity theft is all over the news and it’s the number one cybercrime. Avoid being the next statistic adding to the $10.9 million in losses from identity theft (in Canada).

Your SmartSwipe is a plug and play device that is easy to use. Your card information is encrypted and never stored onto your computer. What’s more is that the company has a guaranteed insurance policy for consumers. You need to have a Windows based computer using Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7 and Internet Explorer 6 or higher, internet connection and an available USB port.

I recently made an online magazine purchase, and because of SmartSwipe I felt more secure about making the purchase. I will be taking the SmartSwipe with me while travelling because with wireless internet, hacking can occur so I can still make my online purchases but now with peace of mind by using my SmartSwipe.

I am excited to share with you that this product was created by a Canadian and is sold all over the world. It has received excellent reviews all over the world from hundreds of reputable technology reviewers and I am glad that I can showcase this product to you at The Shopping Channel. Watch me present it live this Friday.
