Portable Bluetooth speakers are extremely sought after, their sales reaching all-time levels. Now, a new device has also joined the trend – Samsung DA-F61 Bluetooth Speaker, offering a superior build with perfect sound quality. Even though, on paper this bluetooth speaker from Samsung seems to be a simple product, Samsung ensured that all its features are up to date with the latest technology.

Modern technology is advancing very fast and new products are being released each day. As so, it can be very difficult to keep in touch with the latest gadget and app releases. In order to be informed about the latest gadget releases, it is important to subscribe to a tech news blog or website. Our favorite one is http://www.sifrutech.com where you can find plenty of information about Bluetooth speakers and many other interesting gadgets.  The specifications of the brand new Samsung DA-F61 Bluetooth Speaker are: Bluetooth 3.0 with apt-X CSR, Bass Boost, 3.5mm minijack input, Near Field Communication support (NFC), Neodymium speaker drivers and passive subwoofer. These specifications make it one of the most wanted type of bluetooth speakers to be released in 2013. Now let us detail what is “under the hood”:

Firstly, its Bluetooth 3.0 represents the newest transition of the wireless technology. This latest wi-fi technology is supported by apt-X CSR to offer sound quality an extra boost over the regular A2DP system. It also has SoundShare, a great feature that lets you emit sound from a compatible Samsung TV to the DA-F61. Therefore, you can place the speaker next to you and listen to TV shows or whatever you want on the TV, without everyone else being forced to hear the sound coming from the TV speakers. Another wonderful specification is the Near Field Communication, or NFC, which make the process of pairing a Bluetooth device with the Samsung DA-F61 Bluetooth Speaker a simpler process. Hold a compatible device up to the NFC logo on the left hand side of the bluetooth device and the speaker turns on finds and connects the devices automatically. To use NFC, you will need an Android device that runs on Android 4.0 or later – if you do not own a device that works on the types of Android mentioned before you will need to download the NFC application.

On the back it has a leg that flips out and permits it to be placed in upright position. In the middle is a cluster of sockets, including a 3.5mm minijack input, a USB port, and a port for the DC power adapter. The last mentioned lets you connect to the mains and charge the built-in lithium-ion battery. If you want to charge it while the stand is flipped out, it can be fed by using the gap in the middle. The Pros of the Samsung DA-F61 Bluetooth Speaker are: the length of the battery life, the incredible design and construction, the surprising loud and refined sound that it offers.

We think that the launch of the Samsung DA-F61 Bluetooth Speaker marks a new era in the industry of music equipments. We were very satisfied with this product’s features and we think that it can significantly improve the life of a music lover.

However, in case you want to offer someone you love even a more interesting speaker, you should definitely opt for a portable bluetooth floating speaker. These devices have become more and more popular on the market in the past years. Besides the fact that they provide high quality sound and 360-degree sound projection, they can double as an amazing decorating item as well. In case you are interested in learning even more about the features of these floating speakers, it is recommended to read some detailed reviews on websites such as floating-speakers.com. You can find these floating speakers in a wide variety of sizes, colours and designs, not to mention that they are also quite affordable.

How to Communicate with Teenagers

Written by Bruce Hughes on . Posted in Family

If you are having troubles with your teenage children, you have come to the right place. We have some great ideas on how to communicate with teenagers better. Teenagers can be really difficult to deal with, but try to understand them because even though you may not believe it, it is as difficult for them as it is for you. You were once a teenager yourself, so perhaps you should think about that the next time you are about to engage in a conversation with your teenage child.

The secret to get your children’s attention is by paying attention to them and trying to understand them, even though you may not like the situation or if you do not agree with them, or even if you do not understand what they are talking to you about. Remember, you have different points of view, and what may be important and threatening to their future, for them it may seem unimportant at that moment, and on the contrary, something that may seem totally unimportant to you, could affect them greatly. Also, keep in mind that at this age, their hormones are just really unstable and they can easily get offended and angry. Moreover, you live in two different worlds, even if you are not aware of it and even if it is not true in fact, you actually are living in two different worlds and between these worlds there is a gap even bigger than Marianas Trench.

So, the best advice on how to communicate with teenagers would be to try to put yourself, your younger self in their place and just offer them all the support they need, even though you think they are not at all entitled to have it. Getting your children’s trust is the best thing you can do for your relationship with them. If you want them to change something, you need to put yourself into their shoes, before offering them any advice, or mainly giving them an order. Let us recognize it – we are actually trying to give them orders, without even explaining why it is wrong to act that way or to do that thing.

Finally, it is difficult to know how to communicate with teenagers, but remember to stay calm and to not get angry too fast or preferably at all, if you can. Maintaining calm is an essential aspect when dealing with your teenager. Therefore, your job is to help lead them towards making better choice, so in the future, they will be able to make good choices without your help. In achieving this, you may at some point have to let them decide and even though it will not be the right choice, you need to let them do it and assume its responsibility and learn the consequences of their actions on their own.
