When drone meets water, the videos can be amazing -- except that most drones hate water and can't even be flown in the rain.

We see a lot of water-resistant equipment around the TUAW Labs, but it's not often that a fully IPX7 waterproof speaker makes an appearance. ECOXGEAR has introduced a sweet little waterproof Bluetooth speaker called the ECOROX (US$129.99 MSRP) that you can take anywhere. Design Like most of ECOX...
