My boyfriend Jeff loves him some electronics. Be it surround sound speakers or a GPS system in the car, he's a sucker for expensive gadgets. (That being said, we're still watching television through a tube and I'm typing this on a 16GB computer. I'm pretty sure my ninth grade scientific calculator was more sophisticated than that.) We're not the Rockefellers, afterall, so we can't have it all.
We recently celebrated 5 years as a couple. This warrants a bit of spending, no? Jeff came home with the one item we've been talking about for years. The Bose Sound Dock. We listen to a lot of music and we entertain a lot. Last summer we bought outdoor speakers from the Home Depot. They were very cheap and sounded terrible, but we wanted music on our back patio. And every summer we go to the cottage and sit on the deck out near the water. We've attempted to drag a stereo speaker out across the lawn, wires trailing, becoming hazardous as the aforementioned mojitos start flying. We've always known the best option would be the compact, high-quality Bose. An iPod could hold our entire collection and we could travel the world with our own little jukebox.
The new generation Sound Dock is portable. Wireless! Rechargeable lithium ion! This pretty much sealed the deal. The battery lasts for hours, charges quickly, and the sound is better than ever. A ghetto blaster for a new generation. Small enough to rest on your shoulder while pimping hoes and convenient enough to take out to the deck on a holiday Monday.
