New technology is generally the forefront of our writing, but what we really appreciate is a new spin on the old tech. Case in point the Parabolic Sound Sphere from Clingo. Using the power of acoustics it naturally amplifies your phone’s speaker by up to 10 db. And for once it’s not exclusive to the iPhone, as the universal mounting pad will work with Androids, Blackberries and others. A universal pass through slot means you can charge while you play and it costs just $34.99. We’re just not sure how well it would mesh with most counter tops since it probably takes up a fair bit of space.
