All-in-one iPhone speaker docks are everywhere, except apparently, in your home or office otherwise you would’ve scrolled down to a motorcycle or something. The bean-shaped Cocoon from Denon looks weirdly cool and sound-wise it definitely doesn’t suck. Inside it’s got two 4mm tweeters and two 100mm woofers powered by a four channel Class D amp. It’s also DLNA and AirPlay enabled.
How high are you right now? No, not the medicinals, like high resolution, high definition? That kind. If your answer is, “not very” hit Canon’s new EOS M.

It’s loaded with ports to connect to everything plus it boasts next-gen Bluetooth aptX.

One of the saddest things about spending a big night in the gentleman’s club with the boys is that in the morning nobody remembers what really happened.
