The New Boombox

I saw this portable amplifier made for MP3 players in today's New York Times. The article said it's an ideal "summertime companion for block parties, tailgate blowouts, picnics, family reunions and rocking at the beach."

Screw the beach—I'd get this puppy and roll it down the street while running my errands right here in good ole Brooklyn.

Remember when everyone used to walk around carrying boomboxes on their shoulder in the eighties? This is the new, updated version of that, totally made for today's lazier society.

No need to use those muscles and hoist it up on your shoulder—just pull out the collapsible handle and you're off.
