Musemini DBoom Speaker – Review

On September 9, 2013, in Audio, Battery, Bluetooth, Music, Review, Speakers, by Curt Blanchard

Musemini DBoom speaker
Manufacturer: Musemini
MSRP: $129.99
Musemini DBoom

Wireless Bluetooth speakers have proliferated to the point where they have become an entire category unto themselves. There are literally hundreds of styles available currently. They vary widely in price and quality. Let’s look at one that sounds terrific and is priced accordingly—Musemini’s new DBoom.

Colors

At seven inches wide, the DBoom is midway between a pocketable and a tabletop size speaker. The room-filling sound quality, however, is much bigger than either. The larger physical size allows Musemini to include a pair of high quality drivers and passive sub-woofers that really put the boom in DBoom. The unit has a huge dynamic range with six watts of stereo power from two upward-firing speakers. Volume levels can reach an astonishing, distortion-free 95db. The upper and lower ends of the sound spectrum stay evenly balanced from soft volume levels all the way up to seriously loud ones.

SuperTooth HD
Review

On September 6, 2011, in Audio, iPhone, Navigation, Review, Wireless, by Mike Breed

SuperTooth HD Review
Company: SuperTooth
Price: $129.00 USD

As a commuter with a fairly long drive to work each day, I often find myself in situations where I need to use my iPhone while driving. Aside from the fact that using a cell phone while driving can be dangerous, it is also illegal to do so in New York State. Utilizing a Bluetooth handset and going hands-free is the only safe and legal option for motorists needing to use their cellular devices in my area of the country.

I’m not a big fan of in-ear Bluetooth devices. I find them uncomfortable and distracting, and that’s not a situation I want myself in while driving. The SuperTooth HD speaker phone seems to fix that dilemma with its visor-mounted handsfree system.

Verbatim Bluetooth Wireless Notebook Laser Mouse – Review

On February 4, 2009, in Review, by Russ Walkowich

Verbatim Bluetooth Wireless Notebook Laser Mouse
Company: Verbatim

Price: $39.99
http://www.verbatim.com

I’ve been using Verbatim products, primarily their recording media, for many years. I’d always found their products to be reliable and priced well. Imagine my surprise when I found out that Verbatim also produces other items, such as the Bluetooth Wireless Notebook Laser Mouse. Most people still have had a tendency to use a USB mouse, plugging a wireless receiver into one of the USB ports. Well, when you’re using a MacBook, having only two ports can be a bit of a hindrance.

NewerTech MAXPower Wireless USB 2.0 Stick Adapter and Extension Cradle
Newer Technology

Price: $52.99
www.newertech.com

I know what you’re thinking. Why would I need a wireless USB stick adapter when I have an airport extreme card built into my Mac? Let me list a few reasons why the Newertechnology MAXPower Wireless USB 2.0 Stick Adapter & Extension Cradle (MAX) might be worthwhile to you:

1) You have an earlier Mac that doesn’t have an Airport Extreme card (AEC).
2) Your current AEC only supports 802.11b or 802.11g protocols (MAX includes 802.11n support) and you want the speed 802.11n provides.
3) The network you want to connect with has a weak signal (You get up to 4x greater range with the “n” protocol).
4) The card in your current Mac is not working.

Apple PowerBook G4 Titanium owners are painfully aware that AirPort reception range is woefully inadequate. The thin titanium sheathing of the case severely inhibits the built-in antenna. The newest PowerBooks, the aluminum 12″ and 17″ versions, have antennae located around the edge of the screen bezel, which is supposed to improve reception range.

But most Titanium owners are not going to sell their existing computers and buy a 12″, a 17″, or wait for the rumored 15″ aluminum version, just to get better AirPort range. What alternatives are there for better AirPort reception?
