So, the holidays are near, and the two hottest gifts that your kids, husband/wife, significant other, and relatives will be asking for are new gaming systems, namely the ultra-hot PlayStation 4 and XBOX One. I’m asking for both and will probably end up with a deluxe checker set, but that’s how my wife rolls.
Working out can be a mind-numbing task. The scenery might change if you’re running or biking on a trail, but the sound of your breath and the rhythmic pounding of your feet can be hypnotic and unbelievably repetitive. If you go to the gym, it’s hard not to notice that most of the people are listening to their iPod or some other MP3 player.
Docking speakers are great if the connector on your smart phone or tablet fits, but if you have the newest iPhone or iPad or a non-Apple device, compatibility is more likely to come through a wireless protocol called Bluetooth (BT). Many source players including notebook computers, phones and tablets have a BT transmitter built in.
We’ve all got them: those large, bulky, thick bricks of plastic battery chargers. Or a drawer full of charging cables, with various plugs compatible with dozens of devices, both new and old. They’re bland, uninspired, and kept hidden—only brought out to perform their task, then tucked away again.
