There is something about a cordless telephone with extra-big buttons and amplified sound that gives you confidence. Take the receiver to any comfy-cozy place in your home or dial your best friend without squinting or asking for assistance. Best of all, you can converse easier than ever because incoming sound is amplified by 40dB, and each keypad button audibly repeats the letter and number when pushed. The telephone ringer is a real kick – 90dB of amplification that ensures you know the moment a friend calls.

Sometimes – when the stars align just right – a great product is delivered at a very attractive price. That’s the case with our giant-button speaker phone with flashing ringer. This phone doesn’t sing or dance and it doesn’t do magic tricks. But it does do all the basics... and at a price that begs the question: How did they do it? The first thing we noticed was the huge buttons. At 1x1.25 inches with big, bold numbers, you can’t miss them. Literally! You don’t have to worry about hitting the wrong number and misdialing. Then we considered the extras: 10, two-touch speed dials; 3, one-touch speed dials; hold button; last number re-dial; volume control; two-way speaker phone; and a flashing ringer. Whew! If this corded phone came with wings, we’d understand … because it’s flying out of our warehouse. To paraphrase a famous quote, yours is not to question why, yours is just to buy, save, and enjoy!

Have you noticed how the most expensive, elegant watches are getting away from notches, dots, and other markings where the numbers should be? They’re going back to easy-to-read numbers. Maybe this is one upside to the Boomer generation maturing! And, ila products are as innovative as ever! They are easy to read with bold numbers on white or silver faces and beautiful leather or expansion bands. And they offer a choice of a male or female voice. These men’s and women’s watches can be set with just one button. These watches are gorgeous!
