Call it conditioning, developed over many years: Tiny speakers always make me think, “Oh boy, is this going to sound tinny.” That’s why I was so pleasantly surprised by the Democracy Revolving Portable Bluetooth Speaker. Made by folks with backgrounds in car audio, Democracy handles deep bass with aplomb and displays no noticeable distortion even when it’s cranked all the way up.

Weren’t we supposed to have universal mobile phone charging by now? I think I remember hearing that discussed at various conferences and in position papers about technology standards. But we’re not there yet- Apple’s insistence on the new proprietary Lightning connector starting with the iPhone 5 may have had something to do with that- and so until then, we’ll have to be content with the Digital Treasures ChargeIt!

Everyone loves a good comeback story, especially if the protagonist is worthy of adoration. Sort of like the Christopher Nolan reboot of the Batman movie franchise. Or Mickey Rourke’s excellent return to acting in The Wrestler and Iron Man 2. Yeah, that’s right, comics!
Need a way to watch a lot of content on your mobile devices, without needing to actually download it all? There’s now a solution in the form of the Dane-Electric Media Streamer.
With the vast (and ever-growing) sea of audio products available, it becomes harder and harder to get noticed. It takes the right combination of elements to get that attention and then deliver with quality that people will love and keep.
Wireless speakers have recently been making a bit of a turnaround in terms of design vs. quality. The ultra-portable fist-size type are being eclipsed by bigger and more robust versions. People are looking for better sound quality in a design that they can still bring anywhere.
