A Bluetooth Speaker For Under $30 That Has Me Sold

March 24, 2015

To compliment my Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 Tablet, I went on the hunt for a bluetooth speaker. Never having owned a bluetooth speaker, I soon found that there are so many different models and types of these speakers to the point that you can easily get lost in the hunt.

What I was looking for was something that was reasonable in size, sounds good, and is under $50.  If you are not familiar with these little speakers, they are primarily used to wirelessly connect (via bluetooth technology) your smartphone or tablet so that you can listen to music, podcasts, videos, etc… It actually adds a whole other dimension to your handheld devices.

After researching bluetooth speakers at various sites on the internet, I ended up at Amazon where I could make cost and feature comparisons and get a good feel of where a particular speaker stood based on the customer reviews (which is a strong point at Amazon).

What I found was a bluetooth speaker called the DKnight Magicbox (for under $30), that in my opinion, deserves a 5 star rating. As a matter of fact if you look at the customer reviews on this speaker you will find that the DKnight Magicbox has had over 5500 customer reviews and is carrying a near 5 star rating.

Straight out of the box I was able to seamlessly connect my tablet to the speaker. The first time I heard the sound, coming from such a small footprint, I was totally amazed. Yes, you can spend a lot of money for a bluetooth speaker, but I am telling you don’t do it.  Give the DKnight Magicbox a try before you do.

Here is what I liked about this speaker:

  • It just plain looks nice (with a rubber top and rubber bottom)…
  • There is an “on and off” switch on the side of the unit and controls on the top of the unit (for volume, to move forward/backward in your music que, to pause and to answer your phone)…
  • When charging, a red led light is displayed.  When the speaker is fully charged the light will go out.
  • There is a micro SD card slot on the unit.  Load your MP3’s on the SD card and speaker will play them…
  • It has two highly powerful 40mml total 6W acoustic drivers that produces a wide spectrum of audio…
  • It is less than $30…

Wireless Speaker Adapter for Bluetooth Audio Devices

March 27, 2013

It is amazing the sound quality that can be had from our smartphones and tablet computers; especially, when you can drive that sound to a your speakers or home theater system. One way to accomplish this, without the mess of wires and actually connecting the device to the speakers, is to use a wireless speaker adapter for bluetooth enabled audio devices (such as your iphone, android phone, ipad and android tablet).

I went on the hunt for such an adapter and came up with the Logitech Wireless Speaker Adapter for Bluetooth Audio Devices that is not only made by a reputable manufacturer, but is cost effective and carries a good review rating.

Wireless audio streaming

  • Instantly stream music, movie soundtracks, Pandora and game audio from your tablet or smartphone to your home speakers
  • Great for iPhone, iPad, Android phones or any Bluetooth-enabled audio device
  • Far better sound quality than you get from your mobile device’s tiny built-in speakers

Auto Adjust The Brightness Of Your Monitor For The Time Of Day

January 4, 2013

I bet that many of my fellow tech bloggers spend a great deal of time at their PCs’, often working into the late hours researching and writing their next article… I know myself, I fly with the owls and hang with the opossums. A lot of this has to do with the mind of the geek not shutting down; BUT, have you ever thought that your computer monitor may be playing a part in this and is actually keeping you up?

Think about it, most everyone owns the big LCD and LED monitors that are very bright and that brightness stays at the same level both day and night. At night, the level of brightness becomes even more radiant and glowing and can actually impact and stress your eyesight and cause headaches; resulting, in sleeplessness or the delay in falling asleep.

Some studies indicate blue light is beneficial during the day, but late at night it can negatively affect your sleep pattern.

There is a software solution, that I have used for the past three year, called F.lux that I will not live without.

Flux

F.lux is a FREE software application that you install on your PC that makes the color temperature of your computer’s display automatically adjust and adapt to the time of day at your location. There is a feature built into the software that allows you to pinpoint your exact location down to the longitude and latitude. Once the location is entered, F.lux does the rest.

f.lux makes your computer screen look like the room you’re in, all the time. When the sun sets, it makes your computer look like your indoor lights. In the morning, it makes things look like sunlight again.

In a sense, as stated on the F.lux web sitewarm at night and like sunlight during the day”. The nice thing about this app is that you can manually adjust the color temperature to tweak it to the level you desire. You can even temporarily disable F.lux or exit F.lux and your color temperature will return to its’ normal settings. The night setting is the setting where you will initially notice that the display gives off a fleshy tone and you may not like it at first; BUT, with continued use it may make a difference in both your vision and health. I can honestly attest, after 3 years of using this app, it is a big help!
