Designer Stubble for the Lazy Man

All this talk of sexy stubble clearly has electric razor manufacturers in a tizzy.

As they try to outdo each other -- whose device is sleeker, easier-to-use, more attractive resting on the bathroom sink -- we (that's those of use who have yet to go electric or yet to grow a beard) get to sit back and giggle at the results.

Wired's Charlie Sorrel give us a particularly honest critique of Remington's Touch Control Beard and Stubble Trimmer:

.  .  . Sure, “shaving” once a week is lazy enough, but to do it without pressing any buttons or turning any dials? Heaven. The Remington also sports self-sharpening titanium blades, charges via USB (actually kind of useless in the bathroom), a motorized comb (sounds dangerous) and — most importantly — can cut at a ridiculous 175 different lengths: from 0.4 to 18mm. This makes my Philips, which runs from 1-18mm in huge 1mm steps, seem like I’m scraping my face with a flint.

This made me laugh.

But perhaps I'm smiling because I don't have to wrangle my facial hair into lady-dazzling stubble each week?
