I’m guessing this is just a midnight Woot — hope it’s a back to back Woot Off though! :>) Don’t ever remember ending prior Woot Offs on such a down note. BTW, where is the podcast for today’s Woot?

TRU dat!
The promotional copy for these phine, phunky phones says they utilize “the latest in cutting edge technology,” and aren’t you relieved? There’s nothing worse than outdated cutting-edge technology. That bit of redundant marketing is the only thing we don’t like about ‘em, though. Here’s what we do like:

They transmit on frequencies that are well nigh interference-free, and at juiced-up power levels, too. Result? Clearer, higher-quality audio, whether you’re talking to live single girls in your area who want to party or getting a guilt trip from mom. Why do you never visit her, anyway?

You want features? ‘Cause these suckers have features. Dual speakerphones (both on the handsets and base) let you talk on the phone while leaving both hands free to gesture expressively, though it will be lost on the party at the other end of the line. There’s an integrated digital answering machine with all the capabilities you’d expect (like remote message check). And, of course, you got your flash, pause, hold, and redial with memory storage of the last three numbers you dialed. Handy, too, is that you can dial from the handsets or from the base.

The handsets (two included) use digital spread spectrum transmission for mad range, yo, while keeping static to a minimum. By comparison, any other phone sounds like it transmits on Channel Z. They also have the kind of heft and aerodynamics that Russell Crowe would appreciate.

The three-line handset LCDs work in conjunction with caller ID services so you can call those neighbor kids back to explain that actually, what you meant was that your refrigerator was functioning normally. In addition to your speed-dial presets, the TRU5885-2A1 will store a handsome hundred names and numbers.
