Review: Black Diamond III Bluetooth speaker

I think it's fair to say that if you want a Bluetooth loudspeaker to stream music from your phone or player, the marketplace is somewhat generous with its choices. To stand out and be noticed, manufacturers need to add something extra to the pot – such as being able to change shape like the novel Transformative Bluetooth Hi-Fi System or really feeling the beat with the ONBEAT-X1 portable speaker.

Eliminator table lamp - shedding light on shredding paper

A paper shredder is usually nothing more than a household or office tool used to securely dispose of personal or sensitive documents. They perform a function and are otherwise hidden away only to be used as and when needed. Eliminator wears a second hat - it's a concept design for a paper shredder that also acts as a table lamp, or a table lamp that also acts as a paper shredder, depending on your point of view.
