Abbee Music System Omits Ads, DJ Chatter


Myine Electronics has produced the Abbee commercial-free Music System that also gets rid of annoying DJ chat. There are two parts to the device, a base stereo speaker system with built-in FM tuner and Music Lock, a portable player that can record songs from the station and holds about 500 tunes. Of course, there is a plus and minus to the system. The good news is that you get rid of the ads and get your music without subscription while the bad news is that you might get parts of the intro of the song clipped.

Treat Your Pets to 360º Tunes


A farmer claimed that he piped music into his barn as it made his cows happier and they produced more milk. Pet Acoustics has devised My Pet Omnidirectional Speaker that has a 4" drive unit with cone reflector that emits music 360º, the way that they say animals hear it in nature. Recommended for dogs, cats and horses, the speaker will set you back $249.99, a price that would buy a whole lot of kibble. Although the company offers an app for testing the "specially designed" music, we suggest humming to your pets instead.
