Comparing this high-end portable audio system to an iPod is like comparing a Ferrari to a Ford Fiesta. The AK 100 features 32GB of storage, 16-hour battery life, a 2.4-inch touchscreen, & a super-sharp Wolfson DAC. It’s capable of playing MQS, Ogg, FLAC, WAV, WMA, APE, and even MP3 files. And if these file types don’t compute, stick with your Fiesta.

Why spend an irreplaceable 2 hours of your life sitting among all those foul-smelling, mouth-breathing Hobbit cultists at the movie theater when you can order current-release theatrical films in the comfort of your home theater with Prima Cinema?

She’ll be happy to drown out the painful sound of your shower singing with this blue-tooth powered showerhead speaker. And if you persist after the water is off, she’ll remind you that you can remove the speaker from the head and place it on the vanity while you sing and shave.
If speakers encased in shiny, black plastic boxes or polyvinyl orbs aren’t really doing it for you, maybe you should get some Jacks. Constructed using light, high density concrete and a turned hardwood stand, the design is not just unique; it’s also functional. Concrete projects sound while reducing vibration for truer tone.
While offering functions similar to other activity trackers like Nike’s Fuelband and FitBit, this device called Shine from Misfit Wearables—a company founded by ex-Apple CEO John Sculley—is much sleeker, carved from a block of solid aluminum.
