    I think the regular readers of Audioholics know that I'm mostly pretty fair when I write these preview articles. I try to present the good with the bad in a way that informs rather than incites. But, this time, I can hold my tongue no longer. Sometimes Kickstarter uncovers some truly original products. Products that are too niche to be considered by major producers but cool enough that there are enthusiasts who would gladly put out money for them. This is not one of those times. The Berlin Boombox is a DIY cardboard boombox that connects to your device by 3.5mm. Yes cardboard. Yes, you put it together yourself. And yes, it does cost $80.

    Well, it's not often that we see someone throw out the word retarded these days. Good luck with that.

    Oh geez, give me a break. So not only can someone not use that word, but they can't use a misspelled version of it to refer NOT to a person but to our very own rating system or a product in question? If anything I should be offended since Tom is calling out Audioholics, not a person. Or he was referring to the marketing decision to make such a product as "lacking in intelligence" or the product itself as "physically underdeveloped". But I won't lose any sleep over it.
