MY THOUGHTS

I have been wanting to get myself a nice little portable speaker that I could use with my iPad for when I video chat with friends and family. I always find the volume on ipad isn't loud enough so when I got the chance to try out the Kinivo ZX100 Mini Portable Speaker with Rechargeable Battery and Enhanced Bass Resonator  I couldn't wait to try it out. 

I tried it out while video chatting and I was quite happy that I could finally hear someone talking and not having to ask them to repeat themselves a bunch of times. Then I decided to listen to music  to see how the sound quality is. Considering this is a small speaker and it isn't very expensive I think the sound quality is very good. 


To charge the portable speaker I plugged it into my laptop but if you have a USB plug to wall adapter you can just plug it into that and in the wall to charge it.  The battery life is ok but I don't really use it for longer than an hour and I plug it in to charge for an hour or 2 before using it.  

Only thing that I think some people will not like is the little wire that plugs from the speaker to the earphone plug on your device it very short but personally I don't mind it at all. 

These come in different colours and right now they are less than $20 .

Disney/Pixar’s INSIDE OUT opens in theatres June 19, 2015





From an adventurous balloon ride above the clouds to a monster-filled metropolis, Academy Award®-winning director Pete Docter (“Monsters, Inc.,” “Up”) has taken audiences to unique and imaginative places. In Disney•Pixar’s original movie “ Inside Out,” he will take us to the most extraordinary location of all—inside the mind. 
Growing up can be a bumpy road, and it's no exception for Riley, who is uprooted from her Midwest life when her father starts a new job in San Francisco. Like all of us, Riley is guided by her emotions – Joy (Amy Poehler), Fear (Bill Hader), Anger (Lewis Black), Disgust (Mindy Kaling) and Sadness (Phyllis Smith). The emotions live in Headquarters, the control center inside Riley’s mind, where they help advise her through everyday life. As Riley and her emotions struggle to adjust to a new life in San Francisco, turmoil ensues in Headquarters. Although Joy, Riley's main and most important emotion, tries to keep things positive, the emotions conflict on how best to navigate a new city, house and school.
