JVC goes Kaboom

Not everyone enjoys the isolation of headphones for enjoying music. Those who wish to share their tastes with everyone on the block will welcome the JVC RV-NB10 Kaboom, the latest incarnation of the well-liked but long-discontinued line of boom boxes. The Kaboom's familiar cylindrical shape features two subwoofers, JVC's Super Woofer Bass System and 52 watts of total power. The included wireless FM transmitter enables MP3 playback, and a quarter-inch input lets you hook up a microphone or guitar.

"We haven't made Kabooms since the nineties," says Hideomi Tsuya, manager of JVC's Consumer Audio Division, said at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas today. "But customers kept calling in asking for a new Kaboom. When we saw an old model on eBay for US$500, we knew it was time to make a new one." RV-NB10 Kaboom, out in the US in March, will cost US$299.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
