Slightly more than a week ago, we brought you word that there is a spanking new generation of Apple TV that is ready and waiting to cater to the masses as the never ending quest for entertainment in the living room continues.

Apple intends to make more headway into your living room this time around, where the Cupertino firm has rolled out a brand new generation of Apple TV. Those who own the current Apple TV, you would know that it supports Full HD resolution since three years plus back, and the all-new Apple TV is going to deliver a whole lot more than just a visual performance. In fact, Apple is set on delivering a revolutionary experience to the living room that will be based on apps which have been specially built for the television. These very apps on Apple TV will allow you to choose what to watch and when you watch it – all at your convenience, of course.

It does not matter which season it is at the moment wherever you reside here on earth – it certainly does not pay at all to remain cooped up indoors all the time, since it can definitely drive someone nuts. Well, hitting the outdoors would also mean that you will need to be well equipped, especially when the weather is less than forgiving. Well, for those of you out there who love to spend your time outside of the comforts of home, with plenty of sand, water or snow around, then keeping yourself company (along with others who accompany you) with your favorite tunes would definitely be something worth checking out. While there are many other kinds of waterproof speakers out there, the Hercules WAE Outdoor 04Plus Rugged Speaker might be the perfect – and final purchase for you.
Whenever one travels, there would be a need to keep oneself occupied. Of course, the other alternative would be to sleep, but that would be missing out on the sights and sounds of the journey. Some of us would keep ourselves occupied with a good book, while others might prefer to watch a movie, although I am quite sure that other than sleep, the other common denominator would be to listen to music. Now, one’s musical tastes can be very personal, as it differs from one person to the next. The thing is, a pair of headphones is often the medium of choice for you to listen to your favorite tunes, but there are times when a travel speaker is required – which is where you will need to scout around and see whether there is anything suitable out there. Marshall knows this, which is why they have just announced their new Stockwell travel speaker that looks to be a decent candidate for general needs.

A pair of earphones or headphones can be a very personal thing – after all, some of us prefer the sports type which will remain in place no matter the kind of vigorous activity which we are involved in, while others are more than happy with a premium pair that while they are not waterproof, let alone sweatproof, they will be able to exude a quality of audio unlike any other your ears have been treated to before. Having said that, there is a myriad of earphones out there to choose from, and it can get rather tricky trying to hunt down the perfect one. With the Phiaton PS 202 NC earphones, this particular set has been specially designed to target the avid traveler, business commuter or just about anyone else who is seeking for a wee bit of peace and quiet.
