It’s easy to stage a portable party when you’ve got a small, pow­er­ful speaker on hand. One of the lat­est op­tions is from Sony, which has three new wire­less op­tions to choose from. The speak­ers are wa­ter re­sis­tant, though the coolest fea­ture is the syn­chro­nised flash­ing lights. There are three speak­ers to choose SRS-XB20 ($169.95), SRS-XB30 ($269.95) SRS-XB40 ($369.95), depend­ing on how loud you want the mu­sic.

What’s the best way to clean a tele­vi­sion screen?

Firstly, you should never use any type of win­dow cleaner, soap, scour­ing pow­der, or any sol­vents such as al­co­hol, am­mo­nia, or paint thin­ner to clean any part of your TV.

It’s also best to steer clear of us­ing abra­sive scrub­bing pads or pa­per tow­els.

You’ll get the best re­sults from us­ing a soft, clean, lint-free, dry cloth and by gen­tly wip­ing the screen from top to bot­tom.

If there are stub­born fin­ger­prints or other marks, a small amount of screen cleaner sprayed onto the cloth should do the trick.
