The evolution of music through digital channels has changed how we purchase and listen to music. Thanks to new portable bluetooth speaker like BassBoomz we are now able to take our music and high-def sound where ever we go. Before we get into the newest piece of audio greatness we just received I wanted to put some context on how we got to this point. I found this great infographic that shows the history on how we have listened to and purchased music. Back in the day you would purchase an entire album and then have friends come over to listen on your stereo. Music became more portable through the introduction of CD’s where we had portable yet limited sound quality players. BoomBoxes became more popular and they started to range in size in and features. When the iPod was introduced this changed the game and would enable consumers to demand more choices and better quality. Where we buy and listen to music has drastically changed and now we are sharing songs across many of the social network sites and there are even specific sites that allow you to share music with like minded people.
While all this sharing and mobility of music has been great for the consumer, having the ability to listen to your newest tunes in high quality sound without the need to have wires and a large device has been lacking. There are more and more bluetooth devices that have entered the market and they range in price and quality. That is why I was interested in trying out the new BassBoomz from the makers of BassBuds earphones. I have a pair of their earphones and the clarity and quality that they produce is very good. I got my metallic blue BazzBoomz and at first I was wondering how this small device was going to measure up to my current JamBox that I use. Once I received the package I had about three seconds to look at it before my three kids swept it away to link up to their iPod touch and test it out. They had it setup in about minute and were blasting the newest single from Gotye. This small blue cylinder produced sound that could be hear from our basement and the clarity and tones where very impressive. I have listed their exact specs below. Without a doubt I can recommend to anyone looking to get a new bluetooth speaker for their iPod, iPad, or any other bluetooth enabled device and want great sound then look at the latest offering from BassBoomz. If you act now they are offering $46 off the US retail price by using the following code: BBZ017532

As more and more companies increase their mobile UK broadband forums offers the customer will ultimately win. This is similar to what we saw with the phone companies back in the early 90’s when they started offering unlimited local and long distance calling. They saw that customers had more choices and with the internet and high speed access was growing they had to retain their customers.
Now broadband companies are offering free equipment and the actual connections devices called dongles to lure more and more customers to their offers.Many people are confused about the actual use of a dongle and you can find discussion on broadband forums to understand where the best deals can be found. Dongles are a piece of computer hardware that connects to a desktop or a laptop most often at the back of a computer to the parallel port. This little piece of hardware can work as a device to extend a connection from one piece of hardware to another or it can also work as a security measure that will have a separate code in order to allow the user to have access to certain applications. It allows devices to connect to the mobile internet without the need to be a near a Wi-Fi hotspot.
Each type of Broadband Technology has its own unique set of traits, advantages, disadvantages and characteristics. In fact, Broadband Technology Selection depends on circumstances and factors which include the coverage and penetration rate, capacity, spectrum usage, type of services to be provided, the availability of further alternatives, economic trends, the topographical and technical considerations. Therefore, to remain competitive and continue thriving in this fast evolving Mobile Broadband market, it is high time the Broadband Service Suppliers and Providers evolved a strategy of data, voice and video. You can now see Video – Cloud management in 2 minutes with this Youtube videos and how businesses can leverage access across multiple sites using the power of the Cloud.
There are plenty of fixed line as well as wireless solutions that are available. Fixed line solutions include the conventional telephone lines, copper cables, hybrid fibre coax such as cable TV and modems. Wireless solutions examples are radio, microwave frequencies and links,WLAN, mobile phone connectivity,access points, AP, FSO, Wi-Fi, and 3G. By the nature of its medium, fixed line technology has limited bandwidth and generally operates through power lines or copper cables. FreeSpace or Wireless Technology uses the radio spectrum wherein the bandwidth is limited to the extent of the available amount of licensed radio spectrum.Cloud management providers are seeing the trend to portability and not being locked into long term contracts to attract new customers so they are offering pay as you go connectivity and storage solutions which may impact static broadband companies.

However, fibre optics, in relativity to its competitors, offers almost an infinite level of bandwidth. Due to its immunity to electro magnetic fields and interference, it has higher levels of reliability and security than the wireless/copper networks. Therefore, it makes logical sense in deploying optical fibre systems which have low operating costs and have unsurpassed reliability. Consequently, direct fibre connections to all households would be a much desired concept even though it may involve the laborious and cumbersome task of network deployments in installing fibre optic cables all throughout the network in access. To wrap it up, we need to mention about the advanced optical glass fibres which is the latest development in this field. A sample of its prowess is its ability to provide Broadband speeds up to 50 Mbps, something which is unheard of and beyond our imagination!
