Cheap Car, Cheap Speakers

When your car’s manufacturer selected the contractor for the speakers, all it cared about was ‘How Cheap?’ and ‘Can They Hear the Weather?’ If you care about music – you’ll be getting your own speakers.

Bass junkie? Can’t get enough bottom? Stop turning up the bass, which just distorts past a certain point. Instead, turn down the mid-tones, turn down the treble then turn up the volume.

Men's Luxury Lifestyle Tip/Fact #1

The good news for American travelers seeking luxury is that there are more high-end hotels around the world than ever before. The bad news is that not every expensive, glitzy new hotel is a luxury property. There has been a huge worldwide hospitality building boom for the past decade, in established hotel markets like New York, London and Paris, as well as red hot emerging destinations such as Morocco, China and Southeast Asia. As chains expand in numbers and geography, keeping up their standards of quality becomes a challenge, and only the best international luxury hotel brands have succeeded at delivering the consistency of excellence that luxury travelers expect. Toronto-based Four Seasons is a great example of a brand that put so much time in over the years developing very detailed standards, practices and training that it has been able to grow fairly quickly while retaining its reputation for excellence.
