The Philips DiamondClean Sonic Toothbrush HX 9332 ($220) boasts a timer that assumes the all-important chores of reminding you to switch sides every 30 seconds and "nagging you to brush for the dentist-recommended two minutes." The DiamondClean has five cleaning modes and comes with a USB port that makes it the first electronic brush that can be charged by a laptop. Plus, its everyday charging dock is a "plug-inable" drinking glass. Source: Lifehacker.
