One thing I used and loved while refinishing our floors was the super awesome HDMX Jam Blue Tooth Speaker from AT&T. I could run my computer in the kitchen away from stain and varathane and take my music with me, anywhere in my house. I loved working on my floors with music playing, songs I can sing to make work so much more fun. I logged a lot of hours on that little speaker and it is still running strong. I even knocked it off the edge of my couch while attempting to squeeze by and it is still working. Gotta love that but I don't recommend that kind of abuse.
My kids have been appreciating it too, we have lots of books on cds and we pop those in and off we go, I 'm working and we're all listening. We've even put the Story of the World on and listened to it for hours at a time. The battery life is pretty good on it too, I only ran it down all the way once and I was surprised it lasted that time as long as it did. And if I wasn't giving one away and you wanted to buy one they run in about the 50 dollar range which is not bad for a portable bluetooth speaker, believe me I was in market before this gem showed up on the radar.
AT&T sent me this amazing little speaker and I get to give one away. Are you remodeling? You need this. Got kids home on summer break? You need this. Lame speakers on your laptop (ahem!!)
