Personally I don't know anything about those two specific brands. Boyinblack may have a better idea of where to go as far as something for outdoor use. He's on vacation and won't be back till the end of the week, but I will shoot him a note as a reminder to chime in.

Thanks

I just ran across the Soundcast OutCast 3.4



Uh, crap. This is the one I think I saw in Ultimate. Good gawd... $600 used.

For $600 you could hire me to play banjo on your porch.

So for complete mindless fun and zero value but to please my visual senses, I ordered the HypnoCube

So I got this baby and it is exactly what I thought. It is kind of hypnotizing. And it looks way better in darker rooms. Duh.

I didnít tell my wife. I let her discover it on her own. She Ďreallyí liked it. She likes shiny things. Until I told her how much it costs. She could not justify getting one for herself in her office.

But I planted the seed. Iím slowly figuring that out.

Another seed I planted is my wife doesnít like wood. Sheís a contemporary interior designer and wood is not only foreign but kind of frowned on. She asked me to get rid of everything I had made of wood, which was just about everything. I still maintain the benefits of wood, so we have back and forth on some items. For instance our new bed has now some wood. Granted itís painted black and pretty much defeats the point, but it is a seed.

The other seed I planted is an Adirondack chair. These are the classic and iconic chairs you see on porches and lawns. They are deceivingly comfortable. Iíve mentioned them several times I would like a few on our deck or patio. Since she saw they are made of wood and about as un-contemporary as you can get, she never bought into it.

Until she sat in a nice one on our vacation. The seed was planted.

Now she is considering them, especially since she saw they can be painted in any color, particularly in bright colors.

It just takes some time I guess on some things.

I don't know dude. That chair looks like it was made for Zombie Asses.

Thank you for the other post to set up this comeback!

Kristen Bell

I hope you are making efforts to check out House of Lies. By far, one of the best shows on TV today.

So to catch you up... the beginning of the summer after much research and testing things out, I decided on Brookstone's Outdoor wireless Speaker

It works perfectly. When we started the landscaping, I put it way in the corner of the yard and we heard music perfectly through the day listening to Pandora. If one minus, while listening to music, the iPad's time is being used. I guess I could find another source... but for now it's not a big deal. The bass boost is fine. And the loudness is more than enough. It's not a rock concert. It's music for the background.

We used it the other night on one of first beautiful evenings. Flawless and the blue glow was rather icing on the cake.



This kids demo really helped me focus on checking out Brookstones product. I did not know they've been doing this speaker for years.

Also suddenly last week we needed a camera for an event, I discovered my camera crapped out. It would take pictures, but the view screen didn't work, so it was like cross your fingers and hope you have it in view. That's just dumb.

So Best Buy had and ad for a Canon similar to what I had for $149. I went to Wal-mart first to see if they had something competitive. I ran across a slightly more expensive Olympus. I liked what I saw.

So I went next door to Best Buy, saw a comparable Olympus (VR-350) the same price as the bulky Canon. Tested it out,  read reviews and I was hooked. Picked that puppy up and am more than happy with my amateur needs for taking photogs.

I just found out it can take 3D and a variety of other cool little bells and whistles. For $149, I'm happy.







The 3D was a kick in the head. It's easy to shoot and simply the Red/Blue glasses. On the little screen it's cool. Wonder what it looks like on the big screen... or if I can share it here?

Hmmmmmm

My wish list at the moment is a 1TB iPod Classic.

Oh, those don't exist?

Someone should get on that.

And if Kristen Bell would want to keep me company in the meantime... well, I'd send her Chip's way.  Because I'm not greedy.
