    Our favorite smart phone gadgets [Gadgets 007]

    The editors of Boing Boing recommend technology they love and use. Xeni, Jason, and Mark check out a Bluetooth speaker, an earphone cord manager, a compact phone recharger, snap-on earpod clips, an app for insomniacs, and more.

    Our picks this week:


    Logitech Ultimate Ears BOOM Wireless Bluetooth Speaker: $200 (photo above) Powerful, crisp sound in a highly portable, water-resistant speaker. Perfect for the office, your hotel room, the beach.

    ankerAnker Astro Mini 3000mAh Ultra-Compact Portable Charger: $20 Want a surprise? Battery life on my smartphone sucks. I'm always looking for small, simple external packs that last.


    sprngSprng Clips $10: These clips snap on to your Apple Earpods to prevent them from falling out, by hooking under the antihelix (curved prominence of cartilage) of your ear.
