Box It reminds me of an old arcade game that you'd find at the local Aladdin's Castle or convenience store in the early '80s. It's not a terribly complicated game with a simple gaming concept but just enough challenge about it to keep things interesting.

Logitech X100 Review: A good, affordable mobile wireless speaker

23

There are a variety of portable speakers in the market now that are good enough to fill a room to kick off a party or a conference call anytime.

The Logitech X100 is a decent, affordable option that provides a decent output and is small enough to slip into any bag. It doesn't rival large speakers or even the premium portable speakers in features or sound quality, but a nicely designed, compact speaker at the price it comes at is definitely interesting.
