Bluetooth wireless speakers have becoming extremely popular over the past couple of years. They can be used with multiple devices and are powerful enough to provide music for an entire room. They are also small enough that you can easily throw them in your backpack or laptop bag. LUXA2 has a new Bluetooth speaker in their GroovyW, but it is not your ordinary Bluetooth speaker. It comes with a removable wireless / wired charging station giving you 4000mAh of extra power for your portable device. The GroovyW also supports NFC for pairing, has touch panel controls, a microphone to take calls and comes with a companion App for both iOS and Android.
Music is such an important part of many people’s lives, as we speak I am listening to an awesome playlist that helps me concentrate when writing reviews. When you have great music you want to share it with your friends.

While this is a great idea these earbuds cost under $20 so we will have to see just how well they sound.

The whole idea behind Gigabyte’s BRIX ultra compact PC kit’s are to give you a functional PC with an extremely small form factor. This makes them perfect for a media or internet machine. Their small size means you can put them pretty much anywhere as well. While the BRIX systems have been out for a while the BRIX projector is a newer product that takes a BRIX ultra compact PC Kit and adds a micro-projector for a complete and very cool setup. It is actually quite impressive that Gigabyte has been able to fit a projector right on top of the BRIX, making it not much larger than the normal version. The Gigabyte BRIX Projector that we are taking a look at today is powered by the Intel i3-4010U 1.7GHz processor and Intel HD 4400 graphics. Being that this is a “PC Kit” you will need to install your own DDR3L memory and mSATA drive. Let’s take a look!

When you first take a look at the GroovyT Magic Boom Box you think that is your typical portable or Bluetooth speaker, but it is not. Unlike those speakers the GroovyT requires no wires, Bluetooth or even WiFi to work. So how does it work?

Over the past few months I have been hooking up my phone to my Stereo or PC speakers via a 3.5mm audio jack. Which also means I have to leave it plugged in next to my TV or my PC and when I receive a phone call I then have to remove the phone and answer and redo the whole process when I get off the phone. I have a very nice home theatre system and really don’t feel the need to upgrade to get the special perks of some of the new technology. Portable Bluetooth speakers are great when you’re out on the go but not when you want to be in your house and want to listen to music on your home theatre system. Well over the past few years there have been some options, but they all cost a good chunk of change. A few weeks ago I received the Diamond Wireless Music Receiver which broadcasts over Bluetooth. Lets take a look and see if this wireless music receiver will fit your needs in your house.
