Apple’s surprise launch of the new iPad mini with Retina display was an unusual move for a company whose marketing techniques have become the envy of the world.

This past Tuesday, reports were coming in that many stores were already sold out of the 16GB and 128GB models of iPad mini with Retina display.

Portable speakers are getting to be so prolific that it is hard to distinguish one from another. Some are loud enough to fill an auditorium. Others are small enough to fit in your pocket. Acoustic Research has gone one step further and designed a portable speaker “for her” that looks like a fashion-forward clutch. Now, you can dress to the nines and accessorize your audio system to match.
