So many Ultrabooks in ourlaptop buyer's guide: Not one with a 15-inch screen. Which is strange, because it seemed for a while that bigger-screen ultraportables were going to become a thing; HP, Sony and ASUS all tried their hand at super-light 15-inch machines. Two years later, though, Samsung is one of the only companies that's still at it.

OPPO , which already has a large following in China, came into mainstream Android consciousness last year because of the OPPO N1 . Or to be more precise, because of its ties with CyanogenMod as the first OEM to ship with the custom ROM out of the box, at least partially.
Over the years, I’ve had the chance to review several small, wooden speakers from Pyramid Distribution. You’ll find links to those reviews at the end of this review. I had assumed those cute little speakers, shaped like acorns or Scottie dogs, would be more fun than functional, but I was proven wrong by every one of those I reviewed.
A little while ago I reviewed the Sonos Play:1 speaker . I was thrilled with how the speaker packed a real punch in sound, performance and design. Over the last few weeks I've had the addition of the the Sonos Play:3 (US$299) and Play:5 (US$399) to add to the Play:1, creating a truly wireless sound system for three rooms in my flat.
I’ve been reviewing a few Bluetooth speakers lately and while some are copy-cat versions that show little imagination in design or audio quality, others are unique enough to garner attention.
