You guessed it Acorns, the abilities, giant Ligon grannies, and these are. Basically on storage structures, but the store thousands of ACORNS every fall Sarah's with the Smithsonian national, Museum of Natural History in Bark and dead bars of trees they make individual holes in which the store one garnered a time and Some GRANITZ may have tens of thousands of holes, woodpeckers that hold high quality territory die others come to claim it for themselves. That's when the fighting began so. It's a lot of energy that they were in and that sort of as you how valuable big grants are for them. So they put in a lot of effort in the shark known for this big long term price.

California. There's the big oak tree and you can just hear board calling a because they give very distinct. These WACKO WACKO calls when they're fighting each other. From. You can hear it from far away. There are so many boards calling and when you go closer, you'll see birds. Flying around pretty chaotically, there are birds washing so most. Coalitions will group together every now and then and sprouts spread out their wings on a prominent branch of the tree anshuman basically who they are that they are together but these conflicts often the violence the you see birds with big injuries in see bloodied feathers you can see is style boards with some injuries that are obviously fatal be seen boards, broken wings and also boards far the crown like fighting each other like like I often boards.

France holds defiant rallies after murder of teacher
"Have been held across France in remembrance of the Parisian Schoolteacher Samuel Patty Mr. Patty was beheaded on Friday after showing cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad to his pupils. The crime has shocked the country a little earlier. I asked our Paris correspondent Tom just watson about the mood in the French capital. Ask. was the sound of thousands of people gathered in Paris's plus the levick public on Sunday paying tribute to the teachers. Some you patty who was killed two days earlier. While his beheading has shocked this country and demonstrations have been held far beyond the Paris area including the cities of Baldo Leon Marseille, and to lose amongst other places. Patty was killed near the school way worked Asaba about three kilometers north of the French capital and it's understood the motive for his killing was that he showed his students caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad. Caricatures published by the weekly Shali Abdul back in two thousand fifteen and that triggered deadly attacks on the satirical newspapers headquarters. At the time those characters were then republished by Shali Abdul to coincide with the trial of the accomplices in that two thousand, fifteen attack. This is in fact, the second terror related incident since that trial began because last month a man armed with meat cleaver tried to storm. What he thought was still Shalhoub does headquarters in Paris and two injured two people in what was a botched attack. President, Emmanuel. macron has immediately condemned the killing of some party and he went on to describe this shocking act of violence as and I quote an Islamist terrorist attack. assassinate. Only. One of our citizens was murdered today because he was teaching at is teaching students about freedom of expression, the liberty to believe and not believe. Local booklet. Dealer Schmaltz compatriot was flagrantly attacked. He was a victim of an Islamist terrorist attack than that. Don't always. What more do we know about the alleged assailant? Will the police shot and killed in eighteen year old man believed to be the Ataka in a town close to the scene of Friday's beheading it's understood that the suspected killer was a refugee from Chechnya who'd only been France for a few months. We authorities say that the MOM was not previously known to the meaning that he wasn't on a terror watch list. Although he is believed to have a relative who is a member of the Islamic state group in. Syria. Will, a French anti-terror team has launched an investigation on a number of arrests have already been made amongst those arrested the suspects, parents and his brother. So as that investigation continues, no doubt more details will emerge about who this eighteen year old walls and whether or not he acted alone. I'm what about the motive Tom. Tell us more about what happened prior to Samuel parties horrific killing will before he himself was killed by the police the suspected attack posted a photograph of his gruesome crime on social. Media. With the photograph he wrote the caption, I have executed one of the dogs hell who dead to put Mahama down. What is understood that earlier on this month, the forty seven year, old history and geography teacher. Samuel Patty had held a discussion with his pupils about freedom of speech and the issue of the caricatures depicting the Prophet Mohammed had been shown in the context of that discussion. However, it should be pointed out that Patty told pupils who might be offended by the caricatures that he was about to should them to them and he said they could leave the room if they wanted to. But nevertheless, all of this prompted complaints from some of the parents of Muslim children in that class and as the issue drew more and more attention, the schools thought had receiving threatening phone calls and the father of one particular schoolgirl is reported to launched an appeal on line calling for action to be taken against similar petty. We'll all the while these school offered its full support, the teacher and tried to engage in dialogue with the parents who complained. And then on Friday this eighteen year old attack came to the school asking the people to point out the teacher in question which they did, and he then killed him. So. Does been shocking sequence of events has been disbelief at the barbarism of this crime, and the fact that someone should have been beheaded for raising the issue of freedom of expression, which is such a core tenet of what it means to be. French that was our correspondent in Paris Tom Burgess Watson speaking to me a little. Elia,

The S in USA stands for swindle
"Lipson recently made the leap from Indonesia to America and he's starting to think that the in USA stands for swindle. It was meant to be a simple day out. Hirakata gopher drive have lunch come home but in the United States and certainly here in Washington. Dc nothing is simple. Everything it seems is in fact a swindle. I The hire car online. The quote was about sixty five Australian dollars eminently reasonable so I booked but going in to pick out the keys the price had inexplicably gone up to one hundred fifteen dollars mice double. I had chosen to limit liability for about ten dollars but the Matt's still didn't add up. This is life in America where the price never the price taxes fees and surcharges and never included in the quoted price. Even when you ask what you need to pay for Sandwich or concert ticket or phone plan your told one price and then watch the cash register magically throw up an extra ten or twenty percent and to be clear. This is before the much maligned cheap. Anyway I booked the car. It was a Friday afternoon and the Hayek Office was about to close for some reason. It was open every day until seven pm except Fridays when I closed up shop at five so I asked if I could prepay for an additional hour or two on Saturday since returning the car by four thirty in the afternoon would limit our options for such saying. I was told that would incur. Another one hundred fifteen dollars even for a few extra minutes a full day's charge of course that's why the office shuts at five on Fridays. They know people are more likely to book an extra day or get distracted a winery and perhaps missed the deadline. Like we almost did so to swindles before. I even put the key in the ignition. We drove to hop ferry and historic town. Where in eighteen fifty nine abolitionist John Brown through gasoline on the flames of civil war by instigating a revolt by armed slaves. We set the map to the visitor's center and just before we arrived Lo and behold a toll booth. It was thirty dollars to drive onto the side told myself well. We pay for National Parks in Australia. So I suppose it's reasonable. He will give him some great assistance by a real American Park Ranger in a real smokybear style hat. He very helpfully pointed out shuttle bus. That would take us to the side but as we shuttle past the toll booth and down the road to town. I realized this was the same road. We'd just driven on anyone. In the know had just driven straight to town and avoided the thirty dollar fee swindled number three felt even worse because smokey. The Bay was the culprit. We bought some hot dogs for lunch and then with tip paid double what the number on the chalkboard suggested then eventually got shuttle bus back to the car and headed for home since we had a bit of time pass leave. I thought why don't take the scenic. Route turned off the freeway but they once again and other toll booth scenic route was in fact a toll road no warning sign of a fee ahead no way to reverse out turnaround just slot for our credit card. Another nine dollars enough to three kilometers and other toll booth and other credit card slot and another six dollars as a straight talking strengthen. It's hard not to get upset at these constant traps here in the United States. After my time in Indonesia wrongly concluded it was the Bali's street Hawker had to keep your eye on it turns out it's the overly polite American. That's the biggest threat to your wallet. I guess it's the logical conclusion of capitalism running rampant combined with undefended social services like national parks and roads. Even smokey the bear has had to become. Shall we say street smart to keep honey on the table? It seems you have to be shock just to get by. Gold knows how someone who struggles with English or numbers would cope. Maybe they don't and it makes a little more sense to me. How the nation's most famous shock a dealmaker who repeatedly dotted contractors secured? Hundreds of millions of dollars in questionable tax breaks and delivered subpar apartments to customers could be revived by his supporters as a very stable genius

"Welcome back for those just joining us we had an earthquake overnight he just before three AM so we are in some early coverage for you bill still from the university of Washington seismology lab is joining us now live on the phone and bill what you know so far what is the size allowed tracking there this morning well about two fifty one AM we had a magnitude four point six earthquake that occurred to him your average Marysville and it was mid crustal about two twenty two point three kilometers and it was felt everywhere from Vancouver BC down to Olympia Washington this is far away actually shocked about and with that she on the east side so it was felt pretty strongly in the strongest intensity it is about intensity five that was experienced more hold and bill so far we have had at least two after shocks can we expect more this morning there will be more in fact we're in the process of processing some of those smaller one so there's a bit of catching up to do after an earthquake like this would be smaller to process them but their we're working on that you'll see those through the night and all four point six what level of damage does that cause or what can people expect to see around their house what do we need to know about that that number well when you get up around them and live five modified Mercalli scale of five you experience moderate shaking I mean but certainly you definitely know things are shaking something that might be teetering on a shelf life fall over but we wouldn't expect a structural damage really when you get up around the intensity seven MM you seven you start seeing some structural damage to the weaker structures in bill you talked about the depth of this earthquake in a lot of people talk about in the squalid cake that quake back in two thousand one was about one thirty miles deep and that caused damage just kind of talk about what is the importance of the depth of the earthquake in and how much we feel it what what what how does that play a role in in an earthquake it's a great question when you get down in the deeper in the crust of the energy doesn't dissipate rapidly when it's down deep but when you get up near the surface the the they're more faults and cracks in the credits that will kind of break up it dissipates some of the energy so it doesn't travel as far let's why we we we see from British Columbia you know all the way down it will it be out to win actually people feeling this earthquake in part because it was a little bit deeper if it was shallower he would feel it more intensely where you're standing near the fall but we wouldn't spread out as far and bill and I hope that does that does is this could be a sign of things to calm I know we always talk about it's not a matter of if but yeah right and well you know we've been very lucky we haven't had magnitude five earthquakes for a number of years she made definitely each of that size and larger our in our future there is a very small chance and it's a very small one but that when you have an earthquake sequence like this going on that you may end up triggering a larger earthquake and then this magnitude four six becomes a four shot to that larger he planned but that's a pretty rare occurrence but it does happen okay thank you very much bill still join in this early this morning from the Pacific cut the northwest a seismic network once again a four point six earthquake hitting around two fifty one this morning centered around the three lakes area started as a four point seven on a four point four and then once again upgraded back up to four point six so for a couple of aftershocks and bill telling us in warning us that expected feel more after shocks coming this morning yeah and really being felt all over from Vancouver BC to Olympia Washington that all the way east even to yeah come on and not Wenatchee area so really a wide ranging feel of this earthquake but you know what the bill also mention that when it comes to intensity you know we'll see some shaking it maybe a few things falling over at that level five intensity but it's really not so intensely seven when things start causing major problems with structural damage the definitely jolting a lot of people up this morning good morning to be prepared because once again they say it's not there but when the big

the national oceanic and atmospheric association predicted a range of between nine and fifteen storms will be big enough to merit names that is storms wins thirty nine miles per our about sixty three kilometers per hour or higher forty eight of these were predicted to become hurricanes into four of those were forecast becoming a major hurricanes in category three four or five that is with sustained winds of hundred eleven miles per hour or a hundred and seventy nine kilometers per hour or higher those categories are from the severe simpson hurricane windscale which explains the severity of damage the combi expected from each hurricane category based on the winds ability to collapse rubes walls trees in power infrastructure at different speeds the aid in forecasting efforts meteorologist utilize visualizations called spaghetti models also sometimes zona spaghetti plots to lay person spaghetti models looked like well a bunch of spaghetti strands thrown against the wall in reality though spaghetti pots are method of combining information from a variety of predictive models onto one map to come up with a picture of hurricanes potential track we spoke with daniel j leathers professor and director of meteorology in primatology program at the university of delaware he also serves of delaware state crime matala just an essay co director of the delaware environmental observing serving system he explained each model that's used predict hurricane pats end in many cases intensity have that path plotted on a map oh spaghetti pot does is take the results from all of these models and plot all of them on the same map understand why spaghetti pots are important you have to understand that there are a whole bunch of different modeling methods that are used track hurricanes and like presidential election polls were example they dumped all produce the same results the object of creating such a map according to leathers is just see the extent to which all the different models agree he said well when the pats are very similar to one another this means that all the models are agreeing to a large extent about the future path of the storm in contrast iffy individual parts are all over the place quote then that says there is great uncertainty in the models about where the storm will move in the future spaghetti pots are way of seeing all of the model result at one time not relying on just one model fair forecast they're very helpful in convened a certainty or uncertainty of a forecast the lines on the chart indicate the different paths protected by various models which have varying degrees of reliability leathers said the models including dynamical models using the physics of atmosphere statistical models and in some cases analog models to predict becoming movement of an individual storm these models come from meter a logical organizations from all across the globe places like the national weather service the british met office universities and so on some models are certainly thought to be better than others they are very different and how they make predictions and then what their best at so what if any useful information can lay people get from looking at spaghetti pots leathers explains the most useful information is be certainty of the forecast again if all the apps are very similar the forecast certainty is high if the pastor very different the certainty is low it there's a great spread in the forecast tracks then that shows at the models are not doing a great job as a sweet in figuring out where this particular storm is likely to move in the future some hurricane models can be run in a few seconds on ordinary computer while others may require hours of calculation by a supercomputer spaghetti models have changed subtly over the years as computing power has improved end researchers have tweak their models based on need great volumes of datta we humans have been able together thanks to computers leathers says they approached the bald as more and more hurricane models are run in real time in technology has allowed for putting these models together into a spaghetti plot in a timely manner he predicts the number bottled in their sophistication is likely to continue to grow in the years ahead of today's episode where is it by patrick j tiger and produced by tyler clang

Apple Communication App Works Without a Cellular Network
"New messaging app doesn't even need wifi or even cell service to send receive messages. Now you might be wondering to yourself, what new newfangled technology could possibly exist to explain this. It's not new. I've known about it for quite a while now in addition to showing off the world's first phone with a camera under the screen at 'em. WC twenty nineteen in Shanghai APO unveiled a unexpected smartphone feature, especially for a smartphone maker from China. It's called mesh talk and as a name, hints. It lets you connect to other phones around you there's no need for wifi bluetooth, or cell service to get the job done networks, over distances of up to three kilometers, or one point eight six miles. Now, this nifty, new technology could help you communicate with others in all sorts of instances, where regular service is available now for those wondering mesh talk isn't a new concept as chat apps exists that delivered the same type of Chad experience. There are even devices that. You talk and text on any smartphone without WI fi, or cell connection. However, Apple's app will be built right into its Android devices, which means you'll have access to mesh communication. Right. Out of the box in includes text voice messages, and regular phone calls at times. We encounter extreme situations where there is no network coverage at all, for example, when you just drive at an airport in a foreign country or when you take an off road trip or tend to concert football, match or exhibition apple said in a press release via venture beat this tech offers a solution to such scenarios in which other network. Connections are unavailable or frankly bogged down. So finally, we have an answer. Now, now, you guys, I think after hearing that statement you could probably understand a little bit more, why this kind of seems cool. Mesh talk could be useful during natural disasters or to connect people living in remote places. Sure. But you might also want to use this particular type of tech when while say impressive regime turns off access to the internet during episodes of public. Unrest, or where government tries to forcefully shut down in corrupted app. That's used by demonstrators. So jazz unfortunately, what happened in Hong Kong. That's why surprising to see why a Chinese smartphone maker unveil this particular type of chat apple might not be in the best interest of the Chinese government. That said it's unclear how secure mesh talk app is compared to end to end encrypted services that require internet access, or how well it protects the user's privacy, but remains to be seen, but outside of that, pretty pretty impressive.

Once in a while, you know, you play to play the lotto. Right. But you're right. I look it's not I wouldn't consider gambling. Really, right.

Well, great got a pretty good crudeness foxhole. You guys live on cutting edge. And I enjoy listening you guys. Thank you very much. Appreciate it take care of. Thank you. You know, I was looking at a of the interwebs. Well, Jeffy was searching. Breaking news can't even imagine. And I found video that is really weird. And I know you think oh, no. He was watching weird video on the internet. The breaking news. Where's the banner? Robert. Let's get a banner that says Jeffy watching weird strange. So I find a place in Turkey that is it's in the Turkish mountains, and it's like a an abandoned diz the castle home three if you're watching on blaze television video so hundreds of the chateau's Jeffey number. It's aerial footage of the of the town. It's a it's a for wealthy Arab in western Turkey. And it just since from it sits miles or I'm sorry. We don't know how far this is three kilometers historic town of door on in Turkey, which we have no idea. How far it is the Turkey down. But the design is identical to the miniature castles that were tailored for mainly Arab investors, and it was was going to be shopping mall hotel mosque, and then they didn't build all of them. They were supposed to build seven hundred thirty two of them. They only built five there's only five hundred. Eighty seven of them. And then they ran into five hundred eighty seven buildings identical. And they ran out of money. So they stopped and part of the problem is is that while the company blamed this is the company blaming the woes on the customers who have yet to transfer the money. So they got all the rich guys saying, yeah, we'll take one of those then. No doing business injury. I would I would say that that's possibly they may have not transferred all of the money up. Sure. They made some kind of down payment that just wasn't enough to continue on. So you will tweet this out though. Oh, yeah. I love it. It really is kind of anybody live there really weird. It doesn't say I don't think. So the town did want it. The town didn't want to because they wanted to they thought it would against all their all the beliefs at all the history of the Turkey Turkish mountains that they're in. And they they want to shut down so they're happy. And when so with the group of thought to restructure their debt, they just declared bankruptcy, the rest of China has these, you know, ghost malls that nobody use.

"He's not a solid object. We'd take a word almost like a cloud of things, right? Yeah. Yeah. Exactly. And you know, imagine to crowds right passing to each other. Like a one gets off the train coming down the stairs. And they pass each other in the platform. What's going to happen? Well, it depends on how the interact right and how dense they are. We can start with something will be the obvious parts like the stars. Okay. So you might think oh my gosh is a hundred billion stars coming right at us. That's going to be a big deal is that the right size isn't drama about the same size as the Milky Way. Actually, I think it's bigger than the Milky Way. But you know, factors of ten year not important. So it's hundreds of billions of stars each star. Of course is really big, and you might think well their head right at us. You know, this is gonna be a big deal. But remember that the stars are really far apart. Also in the galaxies are huge not just in terms of the number of stars in terms of the amount of space. They take up a let's see, and you know, you look around you in our galaxy. There aren't that many stars nearby? Right. Closest stars are light years away. And like this crowd analogy, that's pretty. Interesting like, we're crowd of people getting off the subway. There's a crowd of people coming down the stairs to get on the subway. It's going to be a disaster potentially within jly. But if it's not rush hour, and the crowds are pretty light. You know, there's enough space to pass right? The reach other like this stairways and the hallways are huge. And people are already spread out. It may not be like a riot. You know may just be like busy intersection. It's like two people leaving Yankee Stadium at the same time as somebody else is trying to come in like this plenty of exits. Nobody's going to bump into each other. Right. Okay. And that's sort of the case was stars. I read this one comparison where if you magic stars the size of a ping pong ball on average the nearest star is three kilometers away. Right. So if you were going to throw a ping pong ball into a cloud of ping pong balls where the spaces between them we're three kilometers away, you'd be lucky to hit anything even if you were trying. I see. Okay. So our galaxy is actually pretty sparse. Meaning the stars are pretty far apart from each other. We're not clump together. Yeah. Exactly numbing speaking astronaut with speaking. So the very few probably zero direct collisions where one star like actually slams into another one. You get stellar explosions. That would be pretty awesome. I would pay for front road were. But I think it's pretty unlikely that's going to happen. But you know, there's one hundred billion stars running into one hundred billion other stars. Surely, some of them are going to hit head on isn't it aren't they? I mean, there's always a non zero probability, you could get lucky you're unlucky depending on which which commuting for but diffuse enough right there far enough apart than than all of them could pass through without hitting. I mean, I think probably the most likely scenario is that maybe get one the stars. Also don't have to hit directly to affect each other. Each one is a big blog of mass, which means it has gravity, and so they can jostle each other. I mean if another star. Our came by near our solar system and pass nearby. It could affect the orbits of all the planets a planet out of orbit didn't have to hit the star directly head on affect our lives. Eight could maybe pulls out of orbit or fuckers into that other star. That's right. It could it could steal planets. Right. Exactly. Or one of our planets could get jetted out of the solar system. Right. Or it could even kick our star out of the galaxy are stars in orbit around the center of the galaxy. Right. And if it comes if nother star comes near enough, it could get pulled.

The design is pretty brutal, but it serves its purpose. The mono body unit is a quipped with a massive, lithium ion fifteen kilowatt hour battery. The group explains that the front wheel, braking, dissipate seventy five percent of the energy. So it addressed this reality by adding a front wheel hub motor that will recall. Operate the energy that's dissipated despite its minimalistic look and it's a labyrinth technology. The ethic does retain more classical motorcycle elements, including a lightweight to frame a proper swing arm and a trapezoidal fork out the front of it. Obviously, at this point, there is no talk of production, but the students in Genuity could definitely find some real world applications after all would be easy to market at electric. Motorcycle with the two hundred and fifty mile range, which is more than most gasoline models can travel right now. Hopefully we'll get to see this idea make its way to production. Just please let a design student have a go at it as well. Hyperloop transport faces, many, many hurdles, but until now, how cows can cross the track hasn't really been one of them, but that's going to change as Canadian company. Trans pod sets up its testing facility in a village deep in the French countryside. The current record for high-speed t GV trains could be shattered in the tiny commune of drove in central France. Last week. The company applied for planning permission, which it expects to be granted sometime this year. Hyperloop technology much publicized by Ilan. Musk's enthusiasm involves putting passengers or goods in capsules, which are then projected through depressurized tubes at up to twelve hundred kilometers an hour in their search for the perfect test zone. Transplants researchers hit on the Perez to Lou corridor, which. Has no high speed rail line, but they identified eight, three kilometers stretch of an old now, disused railway passing through farmland transplants, founder and chief executive told, euro news that the project has the backing of both residents and local authorities, but admits they've had to build some quirky demands into their planning application. For example, a farmer who has land on either side of the line wanted them to develop a pathway for animals as little. As you're ago Gendron the founder said that he doubted that anyone in Europe would want to invest in hyperloop technology. Now, investors have committed sixty five million euros transport. Also plans to build a research and development center in southern Italy got some spare time this weekend. Why not build yourself a working Rover from plants provided by NASA, the space Knicks at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory have all the plans. Code and materials for you to pursue and use. Just make sure you've got an extra twenty five hundred bucks and a bit of engineering know how this thing isn't made out of Lincoln logs. The story is this after curiosity landed on Mars, GPO wanted to create something a little smaller and less complex that it could use for educational purposes. So they created rove e. That's what they're calling it anyway. Traveled with GPL staff throughout the country and showed off what it was capable of unsurprisingly. Among the many questions asked was often whether a class group could actually built one of their very own. The answer unfortunately was no though far less expensive and complex than a real Mars Rover. Roe v was still too expensive and complex to be a class project. So GPL engineers decided to go back to the drawing board and build one that was less. Expensive. The result is the JPL open source Rover may set of plans that mimic the key components of curiosity, but are simpler and use off the shelf components. The OS are uses curiosity like suspension corner, steering and pivot differential, allowing movement over rough terrain and the brain is a raspberry pi.

This feature is currently only available in the US, but it will be expanding to other countries very soon tricking through a crowded cavernous. WalMart supercenter really isn't much fun, but what if you could do it from the comfort of your own home through virtual reality, the world's biggest retailer wants to find out according to filings with the US patent and trademark office. The company has applied for two patents that detail a virtual showroom and fulfillment center that would connect shoppers clad in VR headsets and censor packed gloves to a three dimensional representation of a WalMart. Store customers could wander digital aisles from home and grab items, which would be immediately picked up and shipped from a fully automated distribution center. The filing is part of WalMart's recent push into virtual reality and area that holds promise for brick and mortar retailers struggling with the massive costs associated with store upkeep and labor. This could be a godsend in February the retailer acquired spatial land a startup that makes software tools to create virtual reality experiences. Spatial land is housed inside walmarts in house tech incubator store number eight, which last year hosted a v. commerce gala in Los Angeles, Agadi affair by WalMart standards that celebrated the five Witters of WalMart competitions to find the best ideas in the space. WalMart is moving aggressively into the digital realm at the same time that Amazon and other technology. He companies are looking to establish a brick and mortar presence. Amazon acquired whole foods market last year and is also opening cashier 'less stores. While Google is planning a retail flagship store in Chicago. WalMart has filed more than a dozen virtual reality patents. But it's focus has shifted from using VR for internal business, say virtual conference calls to more external shopper focused applications. You used any of the portable bluetooth speakers on the market? A have gone through several over the years myself, but they all left me fairly unimpressed with both be sound and their battery life. I've had all portable bluetooth speakers in the same category. It's a great way to share your music on the go, but they're only slightly better than the mono speaker phone on most smartphones. Now I'm revising that thought in recommending the j. b. l. flip Ford. Not only does this compact portable bluetooth speakers sound also, but it has a rock in battery life that seems to keep getting better with testing on top of that. It's completely waterproof and I don't mean water resistant. No, I'm talking dunk. Your head underwater, sit there with a snorkel and submerge your speaker to enjoy all your favorite music is heard by dolphins waterproof. This thing is absolutely incr-. Credible. I was a radio engineer for several years and win. I needed speakers. I always turn to JBL. Their sound is always exceptional with base. You can feel even in their smallest monitor speakers for studios. The flip four holds true to the JBL sound even with its microscopic size. It's smaller than your insulated coffee mug, but weighs in at one point, one pounds. It has a three thousand middle amp hour battery that JBL says, can last for twelve hours. Now intesting I was able to use it for thirteen to fifteen hours depending on how loud it was. And the performance seemed to get a little better. Each time I recharge the device with the first test going just twelve and a half hours thirteen on the second and fifteen on the third. Now, it's very hard to test a speaker at full volume with for twelve hours, especially when you're married and have the kid. But I would. -magine if you did play the flip four at full volume that it would actually last, it's twelve hours specified. world. world.
