SlashGear interviews Futura 2000 on Samsung and the power of cross-branding

Marc Ecko Spraypaint Can shaped bluetooth speaker announced

If you're aware of Ecko Unlimited, you know they're apt to making clothing that's aimed at the streetwear crowd, tending especially to those who love graffiti - this has translated rather enticingly, it would seem, to the tech and audio world with their new "Spray" bluetooth speaker.
