SlashGear 2012 Holiday Gift Guide: Audio Equipment

SlashGear 2012 Holiday Gift Guide: Audio Equipment

There are three different ways you're going it give the gift of audio this holiday season, the first being the massive amount of smart devices out there with their own external speaker - so many do these days that it's taken for granted - see: all of the smartphones, notebooks, and tablets we've worked with for several years - they're all able to play music, imagine that! The second way you're going to give the gift of audio is with speakers galore, starting with the Jawbone BIG Jambox and/or the Jawbone Jambox standard edition - or with custom color combinations if you wish with the company's new "The Remix" initiative - it's fun stuff!

Early-Adopters Must Learn to Wait

Early-Adopters Must Learn to Wait

Early-adopter shouldn't mean beta-tester. The Jawbone UP saga is a great example of this: pushed out too soon, eagerly picked up by keen geeks, and now the subject of a huge refunds program that's costly both financially for Jawbone and in terms of their all-important reputation. Yet do we bring some of this post-purchase misery upon ourselves - as consumers, enthusiasts, geeks - in prioritizing and praising so doggedly the very first to market? Manufacturers have learned we'll gobble up what we're given, rough edges and all.
