Happy National Dictionary Day!

October 16th is National Dictionary Day, and we at Hammacher Schlemmer want to be sure you’re commemorating the occasion fully prepared. We have a number of products intended to educate and inform when stumbling across an unfamiliar locution.

Point and Click DictionaryThe Point and Click Dictionary slides easily over reading material, where its flip-up camera scans any word on the page with the touch of a button, then displays the definition on a 2.4″ color LCD. It provides meanings of over 500,000 words from the Collins English Dictionary, as well as translations from French, Italian, Spanish, and German.

Only Unabridged Electronic Dictionary

The Only Unabridged Electronic Dictionary is the carry-around version of the 2,662-page Webster’s Third New International Dictionary, Unabridged. Instead of the 12-lb printed behemoth, this mousepad-sized device allows you to type in the word meaning you seek (either as written or phonetically) on the 64-key QWERTY keyboard, and receive definitions on a 4X3-inch screen. It even includes word games, a thesaurus, punctuation and style guides, and a one-year subscription to Webster’s online version.


Advanced Electronic Crossword Puzzle DictionaryThe Advanced Electronic Crossword Puzzle Dictionary also has a QWERTY keyboard that affords access to 325,000 clues and answers from the third edition of Merriam-Webster’s Crossword Puzzle Dictionary, making the most difficult of Sunday puzzles a breeze. Question marks replace those letters you’ve yet to identify (such as id??t??y), giving the dictionary further parameters for narrowing down possible answers.



Electronic Bible and Scripture DictionaryThe Electronic Bible And Scripture Dictionary references both the classic King James Version, and the most popular modern translation, The New International Version, using the Holman Bible Dictionary. Readers can search by scripture reference or key words, highlight passages, or look up selected words or phrases in the dictionary. The device can select daily devotional verses for inspiration, or prompt readers to memorize crucial passages through the Learn-a-Verse function.

Variety and functionality await you in the reference section of Hammacher Schlemmer. Be in the know, and choose the electronic dictionary that best meets your needs. It’s the very definition of preparedness.


Thunderclap Alarm Clock

I bought it for my husband – now for the first time in 27 years I don’t have to wake him up. It is wonderful. – Patty in New York

The Thunderclap Alarm Clock is not your ordinary wake-up call. As the name suggests, this is for the serious over-sleepers who just can’t seem to drag themselves out of bed each day.

Thunderclap Alarm ClockGetting a good night’s sleep is important. As is being able to awaken and get to work the next morning. And whether it’s the din of an air conditioner, traffic noise coming through the windows, or a humidifier or fan in your bedroom, there are elements conspiring to keep us from arising from our slumber. This clock is the answer. Adjustable tones and volume — up to 113 decibels of volume, to be precise — let you take control of your mornings. Or someone else’s. Your sluggish roommate likely won’t be able to ignore a 113-decibel gift, no matter how late the study session went.

Need to wake everyone up for a road trip or important event? C-Dog in Michigan says:

I finally found an alarm clock that is an ALARM CLOCK. My hearing isn’t what it used to be and I had trouble hearing different alarm clocks but not this one. In fact, if I turn it all the way up, I wake up my entire household. I highly recommend it to all who can’t find a decent alarm clock. You will never oversleep again!!

And if noise alone isn’t enough, slip the vibrating pad under the mattress for an alarm experience you can feel as well as hear. Not to mention, the 3 bright LEDs which can be set to flash in cooperation with the audio portion of the Thunderclap Alarm Clock.

If you have a difficult time getting a good night’s sleep, without worrying about whether or not your alarm clock will wake you up in the morning, you need The Thunderclap Alarm Clock from Hammacher Schlemmer. You’ll get out of bed, our Lifetime Guarantee is sure of it!
