Apple Computer is the best example that technology isn't just about the specs anymore. Their computers have a look that is sexy and modern with sleek lines, innovative design and eye catching displays. That's not to say that Apple doesn't have the specs to go along with their technology - because they do. But as a consumer I am more drawn to things that are stylish or pretty instead of perfect specs and butt ugly. I don't want to have to buy a cabinet to put my ugly $30 speakers in to keep them off my desk. Technology isn't only about allowing you to edit that image, download a video, or create a word document anymore, but more so a battle between style, size and features.
I bought these Harmon Kardon brand speakers to essentially look cool on my desk. I wasn't too concerned about having the loudest sound or the deepest bass but more so the looks. I can definitely tell that I got what I paid for, they are cool looking but lacking in sound quality.
