Review: Edifier Bric Bluetooth Connect Wireless Speaker

Edifier Bric Bluetooth Connect Wireless Speaker

Edifier is not only known for their Bluetooth speakers; they’re easily recognized by their elegance in design and styling and the Edifier Bric Bluetooth Connect (iF335BT) is certainly no exception.

It has a built-in microphone allowing it to operate as a hands-free speaker kit when you’re using your phone and a neat little output device when you’re streaming your tunes. Its appeal is further enhanced with a pocketsize wireless multifunction remote. It has a beautiful black frame with a matching grill. It’s quite square at the front with rounded edges and curves to the backside. It has two chrome reflex bass ports on either side and two front-facing 70mm drivers under the hood. While it’s classified as portable, at 11.8” x 3.54” x 5.23” (W x H x D), this unit is not really designed to be thrown in a backpack or purse and used on the go. It can run on batteries, albeit six AA cells, but it also runs on AC power with the supplied adapter.

If you’re a big fan of LEGO and have an iPhone 5 or iPod touch (5th generation) then you might be excited to know that Belkin has just released its LEGO Builder Case for iPhone 5.

The model for iPhone 5 is slim and form fitting with a sturdy plastic back and quasi-flexible easy to grip frame. It’s ruggedly designed to protect your iPhone from scratches or against accidental drops. There’s no protection for the bottom edge or front face, so you’ll need another option for that. However the case’s wrap around design does leave the outer shell with a raised edge. So when it’s laying face down, your iPhone is slightly raised and the glass is not touching whatever surface it’s on.

If iPad mini was a car it might be a BMW 1 Series

iPadMini

Being accustomed to using an iPad, I thought it would be an interesting exercise to leave the iPad at home and take along the iPad mini.

After all the buzz and announcements regarding Apple’s Mountain Lion, or OS X 10.8 the OS X’s 9th major release and the over 200 new features it would bring, I couldn’t wait to take it for a test drive. I quickly recalled the events of a year ago during the last major release, Mac OS X Lion. It was then l made the unfortunate choice of sitting and watching the screen anxiously as the new OS downloaded and proceeded to install.
