SuperTooth Disco Twin Dual Bluetooth Speakers Review: Because Two Is Better Than One (Especially In Stereo)

Last November, I reviewed a product called the SuperTooth Disco 2. It's a really great little Bluetooth speaker, because it manages to pack a ton of sound into a small, attractive (I think so, at least) package. But it isn't the most refined  speaker ever built, and its decreased audio output when compared to its predecessor did leave a little to be desired.

It also was missing something - a feature that it originally promised to ship with: wireless stereo pairing with a second Disco 2 speaker.

In Case This Carrier Buyout Nonsense Wasn't Ridiculous Enough, Verizon Also Wants To Buy Clearwire's Spectrum For $1.5B

We just got done breaking down the proposed Dish-led acquisition of Sprint which is in no small part about gaining control of Clearwire's sweet, sweet spectrum. Now we're hearing that Verizon is reportedly also throwing its bid in, but not to buy any of the companies involved.

In a recent filing, Clearwire disclosed that an unidentified "Party J" offered up to $1.5b for the airwaves that it owns.

In the cutthroat world of mobile office suites, developers are always trying to bring more features to the table so you'll pick their offering as your go-to. And when it comes to that arena, I personally can't say anyone does it better than Mobile Systems with Office Suite Pro. It's been my personal choice for, well, a long time.

Today the office-on-the-go was updated to version 7.1, which brings with it several new features, including some rather unique options:

What's in this version:

New features in 7.1:
*Oxford Dictionary of English integration (available as a separate add-on product)
*Ability to perform Google search form Word documents
*Insert image from camera (in Word/Excel/PowerPoint)

Starting with Jelly Bean 4.1, there's a simple and somewhat obscure solution: check the App Info menu to disable notifications. But that can get tedious, especially if you're setting up a new device. Developer Giorgi Dalakishvii has created a more elegant solution, which puts notification settings for all your apps in one handy place.

Sprint is currently in the midst of a buyout with Japanese company SoftBank that would give the foreign telecom control of not only the Now Network, but Clearwire as well, and infuse the company with some much-needed cash. Dish Network, however, hopes to derail these plans with a bid of its own, offering more cash than Softbank has on the table, as well as synergy with its existing television and and broadband packages.
