Whether you’re thinking about letting that five o’clock shadow breathe, taking a razor to your chest, or hedge trimming below the belt, grooming can be a fuzzy issue, especially when it comes to pleasing the ladies.
But fear not. We’ve got your back (so to speak). We tracked down five celebrity babes with strong opinions on how a man grooms his face, torso and nether regions.

You don’t need to go all caveman, but there’s a way to groom with class while maintaining your masculinity. Check out their insights by clicking here.

A phone’s features are only valuable if you can get to them quickly. Having to navigate through several screens just to get to Search and Maps is so 2008. Windows® Phone 7 makes it easier.
The new Windows Phone gives you access to Bing with the click of a button. Bing saves you time by suggesting Search terms based on your entry, feeds you local news, and shares nearby areas of interest on the Map. Plus—you can access all of this information via Voice Search. Where’s the nearest pizza restaurant? When is the movie playing? What’s the fastest way to get around the city? Bing Maps gives you turn-by-turn directions, as well as a street-level view of your final destination.
Your phone and Facebook – two things you use every day that don’t always play nice together. This is a shame because the most interesting Facebook updates come not from people sitting at home doing nothing, but from people who are out in public experiencing new things.
The Windows Phone 7 combines the best of both worlds, bringing your contacts and Facebook together in a way that makes social networking on the go a whole lot easier. The People Hub is social media central, a place where you can see what your friends are doing and where you can let them know what you’re doing. The innovative Me Card lets you update your status or change your profile picture across multiple social networking sites, all from your phone. Check out the new Windows Phone here.
Meet Windows® Phone 7, a phone that’s designed for how you actually interact with it—not how someone else thinks you should. It’s the only phone with a Start Screen and Live Tiles, allowing you to see everything you care about—faster.
The Start Screen is where the action is. It’s customizable and updates constantly. Animated Live Tiles show pending messages and appointments, news and weather, and game and friend status. And it’s all refreshed wirelessly through the web. You can add friends, apps, play lists, photos and other favourites to the Start Screen, making them easy to access. And as an added bonus? You can update all of your social media accounts at once. That alone should save you oodles of time every week. Check out the new Windows Phone here.
We’ve all been there. Midway through a grueling plane ride, with no in-flight entertainment to speak of, when suddenly your portable music player flashes that godforsaken low-battery warning you’ve been dreading since the moment you realized you left your charger back home.
So what do you do when the music finally cuts out and all you’re left with is three seconds of ear-ringing silence followed by the phlegm-choked gargled snoring of the 300-pound Texas soccer mom sitting to your left? Now there’s a way to escape your misery: ChargeCard, a tiny, portable battery charger that’s compatible with just about any electronic device you can throw at it. It weighs only two ounces, measures just a quarter-inch thick and carries twice the charge of most other portable battery chargers. So, take that, boredom. Check it out here.
Tony Hawk, Bear Gryll’s Kevin Durant, Mark Sanchez, and Mark Messier. What do these certified tough guys have in common? Besides being made of steel, and subsisting on a steady diet grit and adventure: of they have sweaty pits.
Sweaty pits that demand constant, unflagging protection. That’s half of why they’ve each signed on in support of Degree’s new deodorant and antiperspirant, Chain of Adventure. The other half of the reason is that its smell is tough enough to suit their style, yet nice enough to please the ladies that flock toward their muscles and scars like so many migrating birds of paradise. So, when you’re getting ready to jump off a cliff into a waterfall washout filled with bikini babes – we think you know where you can turn to keep your game tight from takeoff to splashdown.
Microsoft is throwing a very big, very user-friendly hat into the ring of the next generation of smart phones with their new Windows Phone. Take what you like and dislike about the iPhone and the Droid, and ignore it. This is totally different.
The big things to think about here are the Hubs. These are dedicated places on your Start screen that amalgamate relevant content. Mouthful? Yeah. Here’s what that means. There’s a hub for people where all the info you need from Facebook, and other social networks is fed. There’s a Hub for music and video where you can browse through your media, there’s another for office stuff where you can stay on the ball at work. And, they’re all updated on a second-to-second basis. Beat that (pro tip: you can’t). Check it out here.
