The combination alarm clock and Bluetooth speaker quickly migrated to my teenage daughter’s room, where it has apparently found a permanent home. Is this an alarm clock or a Bluetooth speaker. Technically, it’s both, but based on its features, the Sound Rise leans more toward alarm clock. On the alarm side, there is extensive functionality and customization options. You can set two alarms — perfect for a student who has different wake-up requirements for weekdays and weekends. You have the choice of waking up to a chime, radio, or music from a connected device, with gradually increasing volume to avoid the shock of abruptly having a loud alarm blaring in your ear. You have control over the maximum alarm volume. Snoozing doesn’t require hitting the “Snooze” button precisely — you can mash the buttons in the general vicinity to get that effect (again, perfect for teenagers). So yes, the Sound Rise has your alarm needs well covered. It doesn’t have a battery (other than the backup battery for the alarm clock) and if you listen to FM radio there’s an included flexible antenna. Sound is better than pretty much any alarm clock you’re going to encounter and on par with a decent portable Bluetooth speaker.
On an overnight flight last year, Melissa Hoistion struggled to catch some shut-eye between Las Vegas and New York. Restless, she reached for a sleep aid: the SkyMall catalogue in the seatback pouch. “Every time I get on a flight, I flip through it,” said the New Jersey resident, who works in public relations. Theories behind the magazine’s unfortunate demise abounded, such as competition from passengers’ personal gadgets and in-flight entertainment, including WiFi. Hoistion responded to the news with a mournful message on Twitter. “My first flight in memory without it,” wrote one loyalist. Bemoaned another, “Sitting on the plane knowing that there’s no more SkyMall. And another: “The fact that SkyMall is no longer a thing is an American tragedy. Three months later, SkyMall jolted back to life. In April, C&A Marketing, a manufacturer, distributor and online reseller based in New Jersey, saved the in-flight catalogue from the shredder. (Hoistion’s firm represents C&A Marketing. “Your favorite in-flight catalog is back.
For the record, I’m not saying Apple is “better,” I’m just saying they dominate the market with all devices that have that “cool factor,” where as Microsoft makes extremely practical low-risk decisions when dealing with the consumer’s market and... Creating the first MP3 player that’s barely useful is kind of like saying “first” in the comment section without contributing to the conversation. In another words, being first to an invention is usually not what enables the first similar invention to do it well or even perfect it. What world do you live in. I get that you like Apple, like, you know, sooooo much, but that does not mean you... It matters little that someone did it first if it brings little to the table. Taking something that exists and improving it significantly IS innovation. If that isn’t innovation, then there can be no innovation because every “new” idea is derivative of something prior. Ford made the most innovative car in its history but he was nowhere near the first.
