Xelibri 3 Mobile Phone
obvious that the design of the latest Xelibri series from
Siemens has but one goal in mind ¡V to turn cell phones into
fashion accessories. Out of the 4 models the Xelibri 3 especially
stands out as it does not even have a number pad on the phone.
as a ¡§personal communication device¡¨, or PCD, Xelibri 3
is completely voice controlled. You say ¡§call¡¨ and the phone
calls out for you. A dual band GSM phone, Xelibri 3 fortunately
has not sacrificed phone functions for good looks. It has
backlit navigation keys, polychord ringtones, a 5-line FSTN
display, call lists, and supports SMS and EMS. For its voice
controls features, the Xelibri 3 supports speaker independent
digit dialing, and speaker dependent name dialing. The package
comes with a necklace and headset.

One of the hottest toys this year is the Explorer
Globe by LeapFrog. It¡¦s not just a globe with geographical
information on it, but an interactive globe that talks back
to you with all that information, once you touch it with a
specially equipped digital pen.
Aimed at children 8 years and older, the Explorer
Globe has two basic modes ¡V the learning mode and the quizzing
mode. The child can select one of the 10 learning modes using
a dial, learning the names of the different countries, their
population, currency, capitol, the flying distance and time
between countries, etc.. There are also 6 quizzes, testing
the child¡¦s knowledge of countries, capitols, etc.. The fun
part about the globe is that it can be played alone or with
3 other friends, and the difficulty level can be adjusted
as needed, creating a total interactive experience, and learning
geography can be just as fun.
Taiwan's air, water and soil have been sacrificed for economic
development, and Taiwan's population is now paying a terrible
price. Cancer is now the leading cause of premature death.
Every 11 minutes someone new is diagnosed as suffering from
cancer. Fortunately, new to Taiwan is a company called Usana.

Most users of essence have heard of hydrosol. A number of
clinical tests of hydrosol have shown it to be very effective
in terms of health both physical and mental. Aromatherapy
expert Nicole said that hydrosol products on the market are
constantly proliferating, but most products don't have a good
understanding of consumers' needs. Here is her simple introduction
to hydrosol: "GOLGEMMA SA hydrosol is the water-soluble
material acquired during the distillation of organic plants
from the south of France to extract their essence. It has
health properties and is a natural skin refresher which can
be directly sparyed onto the skin or face. It can also be
added to bath ater to purify the water. Its mild, non-alcohol
containing qualities give a mild and long-lasting affect."
Hydrosol is different to plant essence in that because it
doesn't contain alcohol it will go mouldy eventually. The
shelf life of this pure cream is about one year after opening.
Basic use method is spray, smell, wipe and swallow. Call MAURY
