My advice to speaker shoppers who prioritize sound quality is go for a good set of big speakers. They conjure the sound of music more realistically than tiny ones. I know all too well that most folks settle for something smaller, and usually it's a case of the smaller, the better. That's why designers are always trying to get bigger sounds out of smaller speakers. Enter the Vanatoo Transparent One, a 10-inch-tall powerhouse armed with a 5.25-inch aluminum woofer, a separate rear-mounted 5.25-inch passive radiator, and a 1-inch silk dome tweeter. This little speaker made a … Read more
A car like the Scion FR-S, driven on a twisty road, makes you feel like a really skillful driver. The 2014 BMW M6 Gran Coupe offers no such validation. Unless you push it to extremely dangerous speeds, it will take that same road and make it feel like a walk in the park.

The successor to the HTC One could arrive at all four of the big wireless service providers in early 2014, according to recent chatter.
A pair of tweets from the well-connected @evleaks Twitter feed suggests that HTC will release its next flagship across AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and Verizon within the next few months. It's not clear if this means that all four will carry the device on the same launch day, but it would be a big win for HTC no matter what the timing.
Operating under the code name M8, HTC's next big phone is … Read more
