Read­ing the en­thu­si­as­tic and un­crit­i­cal de­scrip­tion of the UE Won­der­boom

(Shop­per 354), I had the idle thought I of­ten have when con­fronted with por­ta­ble speaker re­views: isn’t it time for an SNP in­dex for these prod­ucts?

No, not the Scot­tish Na­tional Party – Selfish Noise Pol­lu­tion. You could rate them on how ef­fec­tive they were at driv­ing in­no­cent young fam­i­lies from the beach or your neigh­bour from her peace­ful sun­bathing.

How about a clos­ing sen­tence such as: “Yeah, some weirdos may want peace and quiet, but you can soon put a stop to that with the Go­liath Noise Blaster. Ruin their day the Noise Blaster way!” When will mag­a­zines such as yours re­alise there are mil­lions of peo­ple in this coun­try who re­sent hav­ing their lives in­truded on in this thought­less and hate­ful fash­ion? In the same is­sue you give a warn­ing about us­ing il­le­gal add-ons with Kodi. In this case, why can’t you say: “Re­mem­ber: please don’t use these speak­ers in cir­cum­stances that would spoil some­one else’s day”? James Gour­ley
