I got some new Cambridge SoundWork speakers for my computer at work. I have a small pair at home and they are pretty great.

I don’t know what happened over there, but these ones are a bit retarded. They sound fine, but whoever engineered how the wires plug into the individual speakers should be taken out into the parking lot and beaten with a sack full of soda cans.

They have these little metal plates that act as stands for the speakers but the stands themselves cover the standard “red” “Black” wire connectors that stereo speakers have. Nice going….

My second rant about these speakers is that it came with a wall wart so big I’m going to need a separate power strip just to plug it in. It’s so big that it easily takes up 3-4 plugs on a regular extension cord.

Why is it that every electronics manufacturer thinks their piece of equipment is the only piece of electronics that you own? Those plugs waste so much power and they are outdated. So much for state of the art huh…
