I will receive my new Steelcase desk soon, probably this week!
Currently I have a logitech 2.1 sound system and the subwoofer stays at the floor.
It's cable will not be long enough to be able to put the table at stand height. So I've though on replacing it for a better sound system.
I've been at a couple hi fi shops in Barcelona and (as I don't want to spend lots of money in them, but I want a better thing than what I have now) they have proposed me to get the Cambridge YOYO M loudspeakers[^].
Two portable speakers that sound really well. I've heard them today and I'm in love (given I'm not a hi fi expert this don't mean a lot).
Those speakers offer:
- bluetooth + one 3.5 audio jack.
- hands free.
I want to put them on the desktop, behind my displays, and use them to play my PC sounds: music mainly, some youtube videos, who knows if any film sometimes...
The manufacturer only recommends playing music on them as there could be a small delay in the sound and the image given between both loudspeakers there's no cable and sound goes wirelessly...
Having conference capabilities is a plus as when a customer will call me I can use them as a hands free device...
Does any of you have a pair of those? what is your opinion?
Any recommendation in that price range? (300€+/-).

With Mike Mullikin celebrating 55 years on this earth it has made me think about my lifetime and particularly the technical innovations I have seen and experienced. I have a few years on Mike so I go back a little further. For example I can remember Sputnik in 1957 and TV beginning in my home city of Perth in 1959. I saw a microwave oven in about 1966 (Philips). The first computer I encountered was an IBM 1620 and I ran a Basic program on it in 1968. This sat in a room next to a huge Cyber. Of course I watched the moon landing live in 1969. Hand held calculators arrived and I reveled in my HP-25. As a post-grad student I fired a Q switched dye laser to burn a hole in a razor blade late one night. About the same time optical fibre communications commenced. I built a Z-80 based micro from a kit in about 1981. The IBM PC came and with it with PC software (database, spreadsheet etc). Then came BBS and acoustic modems. The internet, cds, ink jet printers, flat screen displays, digital cameras, cnc machines, gps, wifi, cellphones and many other things have followed.
When I think about all these innovations my personal choice as the most amazing in my lifetime is the global positioning system (gps) which relies on many of the above technologies as well as Einstein. Fibre optics a close second. What do others think? I am especially curious about which recent innovations have grabbed people.
