Get Award-Winning Sound With The Sound Stack Bluetooth Speaker [Deals]

CoM - soundfreaqexposed

If there’s anything today’s Bluetooth speakers desperately need – it’s more bass. Too many of them sound too trebly, which often translates to too tinny. That’s not cool. Thankfully, the guys at Soundfreaq have brought back the beat with Sound Stack – a true audiophile’s dream.

With enhanced Bluetooth, docking for 30-pin connected iDevices and innovative audio enhancements, the Sound Stack speaker is a powerhouse. Fill any room with full, accurate sound thanks to Soundfreaq’s proprietary DubSub™ system, a unique 2.2 speaker configuration that pairs two Kevlar-reinforced drivers and two active subwoofers. Combine that with a tuned, triple-ported housing and their UQ3™ spatial sound enhancement technology and you’ve got an acoustic force to be reckoned with.

And Cult of Mac Deals has the Sound Stack for just XXX during this limited time offer — including free shipping!

Wired’s New Cover Asks If You Really Want To Be Like Steve Jobs

Wired’s New Cover Asks If You Really Want To Be Like Steve Jobs

Our friends at Wired have released their August issue, and the magazine features a cover story called Am I Steve Jobs. The cover photo is an earlier picture of Jobs depicted with a halo and horns drawn around his head. Three lines express the self-contradictory nature of Apple’s late CEO: “He was a Buddhist and a tyrant,” He was a genius and a jerk,” and “How his life story has become an inspiration for some and a cautionary tale for others.”

The new issue is available now and can be downloaded in Apple’s Newsstand (weighs in at a healthy 532MB). The main article borrows heavily from Walter Isaacson’s biography, so you may have heard many of the Jobs anecdotes before. There are, however, some interesting interviews that add to the discussion. The focus of the piece is mainly taken from a business and entrepreneurial perspective, but anyone who has followed Jobs and Apple should get at least a little out of it.
