When I received the Boom Urchin speaker I have to admit that my first thoughts were that it was ugly and heavy. After using it for a month, I don't notice its weight or form factor, because I am delighted with its sound. BOOM Movement is one of three audio brands, along with Polk Audio and Defi...

Jobs hits theaters today, and the reviews are piling up faster than unsold Surface tablets (I'm sorry, that was mean).
