Last months fan photo contest winner upped the ante on our humble monthly competition. And not knowing when to fold (because we suck at all things gambling) we raised your asses right back with a serious prize! Thank you guys for the great photo and strong effort. We mean that from the bottom of our loveless, self loathing hearts. To reward you for your champion picture, we offer you this.....(drum roll please)........
Behold, the Philips ShoqBox!
This little fella is a lot more than meets the eye. Sure it's a tiny little jam box (that's what she said), but wait until you hear what this mother trucker is packin'. You'll be amazed by the huge sound that comes from this thing (and huge price tag), and get a load of the specs:
- XSL Acoustics speaker technology -featuring precise tuning among the speaker drivers, the small acoustic enclosure and the circuitry â€” ensures superbly dynamic sound and surprisingly deep, elastic bass response. Its tiny, specially designed stereo speakers incorporate advanced materials (like a titanium cone and neodymium magnet) for remarkably efficient output â€” nearly twice as powerful as conventional speakers of the same size, with no audible distortion even at the highest volume settings.
- 256MB internal flash memory that holds up to 4 hours of near-CD-quality MP3 music, or 8 hours in WMA format* (ID3 tags and Digital Rights Management are fully supported). Transferring tunes to and from the ShoqBox is a snap, thanks to a fast USB connection and the included Musicmatch Jukebox music-management software. And what's more, the ShoqBox is firmware-upgradable for access to new features and compatibility with future music formats as they become available.
- 6-mode equalizer lets you select flat frequency response, or optimize output for the type of music you're playing â€” rock, pop, jazz, hip-hop or classical â€” at the touch of a button. Want even more musical variety? The built-in digital FM tuner lets you pull in your favorite stations with ease. And the inclusion of an alarm and sleep timer makes the ShoqBox a great business-travel companion.
You'll want to go back and actually read those jerk. And i know what your thinking, 256Megs? My balls have more onboard memory than that. But Oh Contraire Mon Frare, there is an auxillary input so you can hook up your hipster 60gig iPod and rock your pants off. It has an FM radio, Alarm clock that will wake you to your tunes, and I think we're over looking the greatest part of this little wonder. It has a 10 HOUR recharagble built in battery! Let that soak in a minute. Don't you see? All your stupid mp3 players can plug into this thing and it will pump out your Hanson collection wherever you are! Think about the beach, park, boring movies/classes/conversations about your girlfriends "feelings", anywhere! In fact, this thing is about as portable as our beer pong tables, and goes anywhere like them too!
We're not parters with Philips or anything, we promise. We just wanted to make sure you knew how dope this thing is. Don't believe us? Read this 3rd party, unbiased review.
And there is nothing that says we don't have a couple more of these wang doodles for another good effort in the contests........
