The crowded market of Bluetooth speakers continues to grow. Bose is adding a new speaker to their SoundLink line with a tiny/portable speaker, the SoundLink Micro ($110). The Bose SoundLink Micro Bluetooth Speaker is just 1.5-inches high and 3.75-inches square and weighs 0.64-pounds. We can expect to see this speaker for sale around...

This Ocean Wave Projector ($19) is pretty cool. Pretty cool for your next psychedelic party or if you just have a tough time falling asleep. The ocean wave projector creates a relaxing visual display (in dark rooms) on any surface you point it at, mainly the ceiling. There are seven colors and brightness settings. There is even a built-in speaker for playing music but the quality of said speaker is suspect. For me, it is about sleep. Turn on the Ocean Wave...

The SOUNDBOKS speaker is portable… just like a YETI Tundra 65 Cooler is “portable”. They both have handles anyway. That isn’t the point really as this speaker system claims to be the loudest portable speaker (119dB). Not sure if that is the case though, considering the DiamondBoxx Model XL says it goes to 120dB. I digress. The

Apple isn’t always first to the game with gadgets, but they are often one of the better options. I am sincerely hoping this is the case with their latest entry into the smart speaker arena. Apples latest gadget is the HomePod ($349) which is landing in the US, UK, and Australia in December of this year. The speaker does similar tricks as the Alexa and Google Home speakers but should blow them all away when it comes to sound quality. At least that is the pitch. You simply talk to the speaker like you would with Siri on your iOS...

I have lived in apartments and condos with walls so thin I could hear my neighbors daily conversations and other things. Things I didn’t want to hear. And I am sure they could even hear all of the noise we made on our side of the paper thin walls. I have never been so self conscious about my shower singing. Now imagine if you were practicing singing, guitar, flute, or playing video games. Especially at odd hours. Yep, you would not make the neighbors happy. Unless...

Apparently the 1980’s trend of big “portable” boomboxes is making a comeback, with some modern technology of course. Think Bluetooth portable speaker on steroids, basically a Bluetooth Boombox. Apparently this trend has been developing steam… news to me. Some how I ended reading online reviews of the Aiwa Exos-9 ($299) and had to dig a bit...

This strange touch-sensitive musical instrument, dubbed the Otamatone, is right up there with the kazoo. Kinda neat but not gonna get you into your local band. Easier to explain with a good old fashioned video, after the break. ...

First off – this one is worth watching. This is OK Go’s “The One Moment” music video which is about four minutes long but was shot entirely in one 4.2 second clip with a high speed camera. Hit the “continue reading” button below for the video. ...
