Best Bluetooth Speaker Under $70?

Best Bluetooth Speaker Under $70?

Is this the best bluetooth speaker for under $70? I’ve tried many portable speakers and man, they’ve come a long away. They’re loud, bassy, and generally distortion free. The good ones all cost $100+ so when Soundfreaq sent me the Sound Spot to try out, I was a little skeptical. However, I am familiar with the company as I’ve tried their original Sound Platform speaker before and came away quite impressed. So what do I look for in small, compact bluetooth speaker? It has to look good, sound good, and painless to pair. Hit the jump for my review.

Expected iPhone 6

Expected iPhone 6

Is designer Heo Leo onto something? Not sure, but his analysis of recent redesigns by Apple has some weight to it. No wonder his iPhone 6 concept looks predictably surreal. Good job Leo!

Purion is an ion air purifier designed as an integration into a traditional Agungi – or Korean fireplace made of natural stone and soil. While heating, the main device purifies and sterilizes air in the room while portable stick ionizers are charged wirelessly in the Agungi’s opening. Each can then be carried to other spaces in the home where they emit negative ions.

If a Laptop and Desktop Made Love

If a Laptop and Desktop Made Love

U.DTR stands for Ultra Desktop Replacement, and that’s exactly what it aims to do… remove the shortcomings of both laptops and desktops to form one ultra-versatile replacement device. The most obvious improvement is the “necked” touch-screen that elevates the monitor to a more comfortable height, similar to that of a desktop computer. Did we mention it’s touch-screen?! Other extras include an angled, more ergonomic keyboard, thoughtfully placed ports, and reduced battery weight.

The Sawdust Sucker Upper

The Sawdust Sucker Upper

The average person doesn’t keep construction goggles or a shop-vac handy, so it’s likely that you know just how irritating it can be to have dust and debris flying all over the place (especially in your eyes) when you’re using a drill! This ingenious device called the Motorless Vacuum uses the drills own rotational power to move the internal fan and create suction which draws dust into the reservoir. After you’re finished drilling, just remove the peripheral and dump the sawdust!

Versatile Tablet PC

Versatile Tablet PC

A transforming Tablet PC is the best way to describe the Apollon. The device functions as a book reader sized tablet and can morph into a large 15inch 16:9 ratio screen. To make life easy, the Apollon uses dual OS. Windows OS for wide mode, which is effective at using heavy programs and watching wide resolution medias. The Android OS for the minimized experience intended for casual use like web surfing and PDF viewing.
