In the wake of a busy September filled with new smartphones and tablets, we've lacked the bandwidth to tell you about other fabulous new gadgets available for your copious consumption. Today's group includes some emergency power solutions and an innovative smartphone multi-room music speaker system.
Wait, you're saying. This isn't a new product. No, you're right. It isn't. But B&N has lowered the price of its Nook SimpleTouch with GlowLight from $139, the highest-priced of the three front-light e-ink e-book readers (Amazon's new Kindle Paperwhite and the $130 KoboGlo, which went on sale yesterday), down to $119, which matches Amazon's Paperwhite-with-"special offers" price. And no ads on its glowing e-reader, B&N says, sticking it a bit to Amazon, which charges $139 for its ad-free version. Don't you love price wars?
