DAILY MANIFESTO

Big Sound, Little Gizmo

Posted on Wednesday, March 7 @ 20:03:21 Eastern by Duke_Ferris
We get a lot of tech oddities sent to us and most of of them are just that: odd. But I realized recently there's one that Saitek dropped by and gave me that I've been using just about every day. Time for the props.

I have to admit that I can't make heads or tails of Saitek's signature flight sim controllers, there's a certain critical mass of buttons and knobs that causes my brain to short circuit. So that part of the presentation just left me drooling, and nodding in a way that I hoped would indicate that I had clearly attended four years of flight school and thus I'd understood everything.

As a parting gift they left me with a little portable kidney bean shaped speaker called the A-100 that had some truly impressive sound for something that's only a few inches long. There are a lot of add-on speakers for MP3 players, but I assure you there is no better size-to-sound ratio than this sucker. You can actually feel the air coming out of the little subwoofer.

Still, not that useful unless I'm traveling, I thought, and it got stuck in a drawer. That is, until I discovered pandora.com, which has since become one of my favorite sites on the whole internet. The problem was how to listen to Pandora Radio throughout larger areas of my life, and not just in front of a computer. I don't have a Media Center PC hooked to my home theater (yet), and the PS3 web browser dies when confronted by pandora.com. Then I remembered the kidney bean.

The solution: Pocket PC (or laptop) + Saitek A-100

Sure, it doesn't get loud enough to rattle the windows, but it's plenty of volume for normal use and I can listen to my Pandora Radio in the kitchen, the garage, the yard... anywhere with wifi.

Everybody's life should have a soundtrack.
