The school year has started, which means the prime time to use the Sound Machines already purchased has arrived. I even gave a green one to our esteemed Chair UV, and a red one to Scott, now up the hill. They are all the rage, or possibly just a part of it.
When ordering more to give to a friend some while ago, a new sound box, from a different company, and called Sound Bites, showed up in the amazon.com search, at a third of the price of the established models. Naturally I got more than one. And naturally, when I used it at work, at least one co-worker ordered her own copy. Faculty meetings are about to get a bit less dull.
