Sound stalks you around the room

SpeakCraft creates 'theater in motion'

SpeakerCraft

In some ways this speaker system is the polar opposite of the super-thin model just blogged. We're talking about direction this time, not dimension. Now that we've thoroughly confused you, read on.

Where the Final Sound model lies flat and immobile, the "TIME Five" from SpeakerCraft can be mounted flush on the ceiling but can "automatically drop down to a 15-, 30- or 45-degree angle and then rotate to aim toward any position in the room." With a remote control, the company claims, it can create a "theater in motion" experience.

We were all excited about the possibilities until seeing the price, which Red Ferret puts at $750 each. So for now, we'll be sticking with the THX system at our local theater. (And no, it's not just because they remind us of Stormtrooper helmets. Even though they do.)

Outcry over iPhone 'Error 53' and bad USB Type-C cables

Be careful when replacing parts. Poorly made cables can fry a laptop, and iPhones will stop working if the Touch ID button is repaired outside of Apple. It's a lesson some are learning the hard way.
