4 Th u rsd a y, Ja n u a ry 9 , 2 0 1 4 C o n su m e r Ele c tro n ic D a ily N e ws AR FOR HER COMBINES CONVENIENCE AND FASHION SENSE Acoustic Research introduces their new line of attractive and functional tech accessories designed with the modern woman in mind, AR for Her. Leading the collection is the wireless Bluetooth speaker that combines trends from the runway with crisp, clear and portable sound. The design rethinks traditional speaker shape and surface, adding a feminine touch with soft, rounded corners, leather detailing and a tactile face that calls upon the tufted fabric trend. A removable hand strap adds style and function. The ARS140 Bluetooth Wireless Speaker also offers two ways to listen and connect: It can be paired wirelessly via Bluetooth or wired through a line-in connection, with hands-free speakerphone functionality via Bluetooth. The AR for Her speaker's svelte tufted look comes in black and white to complement a classic look or city chic style. The line also includes a white and pink polka-dot speaker for a fun and flirty touch, while a leopard print version brings out a fashionista's wild side. The collection will receive an updated look each season to capture the latest runway styles. The Bluetooth speaker wirelessly connects to all compatible devices to stream your favorite music, has a built in microphone for hands-free calling and features a rechargeable battery for extra portability. These features, along with a lightweight size and an optional carrying strap make it easy to transport the speaker from room to room while getting ready, or out on the town for exceptional sound day or night. The ARS140 line of Bluetooth Wireless Speakers will be available this April in a variety of styles and finishes, from black and white quilted to polka dot, for a suggested retail of $79.99. The Acoustic Research for Her line continues with the Mini Bluetooth Wireless Speaker, a smaller form factor speaker for ultra-portable sound. It's fun, stylish, compact and affordable, with easy-to-use Bluetooth wireless streaming from your smartphone and a line-in connection for plugging in virtually any audio source. The Mini Bluetooth Wireless Speakers will be available this March, in a variety of colors, all with the distinctive top pattern, for an MSRP of $39.99. Of course, the AR for Her line isn't just about sound. It's about convenience. It's about meeting the challenges that NITE IZE INTRODUCES HANDLEBAND UNIVERSAL SMARTPHONE BAR MOUNT Nite Ize, Inc., a leading manufacturer of innovative accessories, is excited to announce its collaboration with inventor Daniel Haarburger to bring his invention, the HandleBand™, to market. Daniel developed the HandleBand – a universal smartphone bar mount – to help people use their technology to be more active. A few months later, the device became a smash hit, raising over $120,000 and nearly ten times its goal on the crowdfunding site, Kickstarter.

Today, the Handleband becomes the newest addition to the Nite Ize family of innovative products. "Daniel has done an outstanding job in developing the HandleBand, as well as executing a successful Kickstarter campaign," said Rick Case, Nite Ize founder and CEO. "We're excited to help take the HandleBand to new heights and markets. It's great to support such compelling student innovation." "I'm excited to announce that as reward fulfillment comes to close, and as I return to school, I'll be teaming up with Nite Ize to ensure that the HandleBand is not a quick crowdfunding blip, but rather a product that lives on long after the HP ACTION CAMCORDER AC200W VERIFIES YOUR ADVENTUROUS PASSIONS People love to tell stories about their adventures, explorations and travel.
