I read over on Gizmodo.com about the Logitech Omnidirectional Speakers which, according to the press release (found at Logitech.com) “create a substantially wider sweet spot – an especially helpful feature if you often move your laptop around your home or office.”
Surprisingly Gizmodo.com missed the obvious issue with these. They are still connected to your laptop via USB. So, guess you’ll only be moving around your home or office as far as your USB cable will go. Which with the included cable is only 6ft.
First I’m on this side of my desk, now I’m this side of my desk, watch me roam! Freebird!!
These seem like a great idea if they were matched with wireless technology but a speaker system that is supposed to provide omnidirectional sound and allow you to hear “great” sound while moving around the house but actually keeps you anchored is like a Porsche with a throttle limiter set at 65mph. Lame.
