There's just something about these XPS Diamond speakers that makes me want to wretch. Sure, full USB means no clutter. Yeah, I guess a mini remote is nice?
But I don't want to look at giant, meh-looking orbs while listening to music. But the worst part is the PR: "An outstanding design, honed to appeal to female audiences." What does that even mean? Anything plasticky and vaguely shaped like jewelry is a girl's best friend? You can do better. [7 Gadgets]
