Those straight, upright lamps found their way into every home, almost like they were part of some Invasion of the Body Snatchers-style alien takeover scenario.… READ THE REST
The biggest frustration most Bluetooth speaker owners face is when they realize their speaker is completely inadequate for serious booming.
