Take a single glance at the Backbeat Go Earbuds from Plantronics and you’d never assume that they’re of the Bluetooth ilk.  After all, most Bluetooth earbuds or headphones are bulky thanks to the wireless components and battery.  But some how Plantronics has managed to over come that feat with intellegint...

The term “home theater” gets bandied about by every manufacturer of a HDTV or Blu-ray player or audio system. To  most of them, a home theater means a compilation of devices that work together to create a theater-like environment for video and audio. But for those without dedicated areas for...

In this review, I am going to be doing two things I do not normally do.  First, I will be referencing another form of media (namely a podcast) and directly quoting something said there.  The reason  am going to do this is not for the comedy value or the shock...
