Harman Kardon Esquire Mini Speaker: Australian Review

There are dozens of Bluetooth speakers available in Australia today that follow a standard template: internal rechargeable battery, Bluetooth, microphone for handsfree calls, and a set of mono or stereo speaker drivers to make the best use of that precious remaining chassis space. Harman Kardon’s Esquire Mini doesn’t pack the outright punch of its bigger brother, but it’s significantly more portable and makes a great hotel room companion for those short overseas trips. (OK, get your mind out of the gutter.)


This Transforming Briefcase Turntable Is A Walkman For Your Records

Just because you prefer the warm, crackly sound of vinyl records to MP3s doesn’t necessarily mean you also like being tethered to a home stereo whenever you want to listen to your record collection. So Pyle has created this portable turntable that transforms into a briefcase for easy transport, and also includes a rechargeable battery powering a pair of flip-out speakers.


Waking Up Will Suck Less With This Ambient Light Alarm Clock

Studio Proper's PA2 Bluetooth Speaker Hangs From Your Wall, Sticks To Your iPhone

Melbourne design team Studio Proper is best known for its Wallee mounts for iPad and iPhone. (They’re not terrible, either, according to you.) But they’ve branched out from cases and mounting systems, dipping their toes in the waters of technology with a novel, circular wireless speaker.

Parrot Zik 2.0: Australian Hands-On, Pricing And Availability

Parrot’s original Philippe Stark-designed Zik headphones were an impressive exercise in design meeting high technology — powerful noise cancelling and all-out wireless sound quality wrapped in plush full-grain leather.

How To Get Handoff To Actually Work In OS X Yosemite

If you’re anything like me, you were really excited to try out the new Handoff feature in OS X Yosemite and iOS 8.

Beats Pill XL: Australian Review

When Jawbone released the Big Jambox, it was the first big tech brand with a super-sized wireless speaker to up-size from the original Jambox. Then Ultimate Ears jumped onto the bandwagon with the Boombox. Now, Beats has its own plus-size Bluetooth speaker, taking the design of its original Pill and giving it a serious dose of steroids. If you want to go big, the Beats Pill XL is the Bluetooth speaker to choose.


Moto Hint Review: The First Bluetooth Headset I Wasn't Ashamed To Wear

Bluetooth earpieces have always stuck out. I mean they have literally stuck out of your ear. Perhaps they’re not as much of a fashion faux pas as Google Glass, but there’s definitely a stigma about them. To combat the cyborg look, some wearable manufacturers are building smartwatches, but Motorola also has a backup plan: a tiny, handsome earbud that can act like a personal assistant.
