bigjambox-gallery-main-12

Jawbone’s Bluetooth Jambox Smartspeaker is a miracle. Hearing this tiny speaker (and also Soundmatter’s FoxL – on which the Jambox is based) for the first time will quite literally make your jaw drop. So will the price: $200. That’s a lot for a portable speaker of any size, much less one that is only six [...]

Audyssey Audio Dock Air

When I reviewed the South of Market Audio Dock from Audyssey, I was blown over by the sound, the bass, the size, the... well, just about everything. Everything, except the Bluetooth wireless.

iHome_IP4_1

Does anyone remember the Apple Newton? It was arguably the first handheld mobile device and it was way ahead of its time. However, it had so many issues, it ultimately failed in the marketplace. Well, I remember the Newton. I owned four of them and I loved them all. Now, if you are wondering what [...]

Audyssey_LES_Audio_Dock_4

The one thing I really missed from the Audyssey South of Market speaker dock I recently reviewed was Apple’s AirPlay technology (plus no headphone port, but I digress). I was so sure that the next version of that speaker would have it. I was wrong – sort of. Audyssey has released an AirPlay speaker. It’s just [...]

No one has ever mistaken me for an environmentalist, however, I drive a hybrid car; my previous car ran on E85; I replaced most of my light bulbs with CFLs and I sort my trash for recycling.  I do these things, not because it makes me feel good.  I do them because it saves me money.  Hence, when [...]
