Hear that? That's the sound of millions of Yanks celebrating in unison. Why the joviality? Because Philips' CushionSpeaker is coming to America, of course! The device -- which simultaneously serves as a lap-based laptop cushion / stand and an external speaker system -- first made waves last September when it debuted in Europe, but now that USers have evidently proven that they need one too, they're getting exactly what they want. We had a chance to tinker with the device, and largely, we agree with what has already been said. It's a perfectly fine cushion for using your laptop while kicking back on the sofa, but the bass-less speaker leaves a lot to be desired. It's set to ship to sofa sitters this April for $79.99, and if you're interested in the $39.99 to $49.99 Notebook Sleeve, $49.99 Notebook SoundBar and a variety of other peripherals that now have a stateside release in their future, the full details are posted after the break.
