Here’s a Bluetooth speaker you can hang in your shower: the Braven Mira

Braven's new Mira speaker has a stand that can also act as a hook

Braven likes to create speakers that can be used in all sorts of situations, but the company’s new Mira quite possibly takes the cake for versatility.

It’s a Bluetooth speaker that comes with a kickstand that can double as a hook. This means you can place it in some interesting positions throughout your home, including the shower, as long as you have the space to hang it. It has an IPX5 water resistance rating, so slight splashes of water won’t damage it.

If the shower seems like an all too personal space to have a speaker blaring music, then you could also use it in the kitchen while you prepare your next meal. The kick stand will let it rest on a bench quite easily, or, again, you could hang it up on any available towel rack or oven-mitt hook (as long as the hook is large enough, of course).

Braven also reckons you can use this speaker while in a jacuzzi, while riding in a boat, or simply while lazing around the pool. It’s rated for 10 hours of playback, so that’s a lot of potential poolside listening.

It’s available now in Australia and New Zealand and costs $130 in both countries.

Braven's speaker appears to be part of a growing trend of gadgets that can be hung. Lenovo also introduced a couple of tablets that feature a hang mode. Read about them here: Lenovo goes nuts on innovation, introduces Yoga tablet with built-in projector and loads more.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
