We believe there’s so much more that your portable wireless speaker should do for you. That’s why we made the AXX 200.

The AXX 200 is a Bluetooth wireless speaker + Sound Blaster audio processor. This means a portable wireless speaker with power for real-time audio enhancement.

Intelligence. That’s what the AXX 200 brings to the table.

  • Make a call. Listen to music. AXX 200 intelligently adjusts the audio settings for you.
  • The Sound Blaster Central App for your iOS or Android device places the control in your hands.
  • Built-in quad array microphone – That’s FOUR microphones in a single wireless speaker for 360° of clear, unmatched audio pickup for voice calls and recording.
  • A wireless speaker that automatically cancels out noise during voice calls. For real.

It’s for work, it’s for play.
It can be everything you need it to be.

The AXX 200 is now on sale for a limited time at Creative.com and Amazon.com.

Sponsor: WhereIsMi

How much time do you spend looking for things — things you already own? How often do you give up, unable to find what you’re looking for? We can find information in seconds via Google, yet we struggle to find silverware in our homes.

WhereIsMi organizes your things in a big tree that you build as you go. For example, you can add a room, then add a closet to that room. Add a shelf to that closet, then add Mother’s silver to that shelf. The next time you search WhereIsMi for “silver” you will be given a natural path to its location: Bedroom > Closet > Top Shelf > Mother’s Silver. You can also navigate this tree manually to add new things or just to browse.

WhereIsMi is very flexible. For example, you can use it to bookmark your favorite stuffing recipe. Or use it to record an item’s details, like its serial number. Use Siri to dictate a box’s contents. Or use your camera to photograph the box’s contents instead. Or photograph the box’s label so you can visually identify it later on.

WhereIsMi is free, and it has no ads! Just in time for sorting and filing all the post-holiday gifts.

Sponsor: Atlassian’s agile guide

What’s the point of an agile standup meeting?

Gone are the days of 30-minute status meetings where most people are half-asleep or pecking away on their laptops, oblivious to what’s being said. Agile standups are the leaner, more efficient cousin of status meetings where attendees actually stand up. On our feet, we’re more focused, attentive, and concise. It’s science!

Whether you need robust tools for planning and tracking projects, communicating with coworkers, deploying products, or just some general tips on how to run an agile shop (and how to run them), Atlassian is here to offer you the tools and advice you need to get the most out of your agile practice.

Sponsor: Lootback

Your client deadline is in the morning and you really need some web design resources to finish out the project. A dollar here and a dollar there, often stock items add up quickly.

Just because you’re using stock doesn’t mean you have to jack up your prices. There is a better way to stay competitive.

Lootback, the newest addition to your design toolbelt, pays you to make your purchase from the big stock retailers like Envato, iStock, Shutterstock, DepositPhotos, and ThinkStock.

With Lootback you can search all the marketplaces in one spot. Once you find that perfect item, create an account with Lootback, then head over to the other marketplace and buy it. Lootback will track your purchase and get paid a commission for generating the sale. Then they split that commission with you and credit your account to lower your overall costs.

It’s a pretty unique idea that I’ve never seen before. Lootback will save you time and money, so be sure to give it a try.
