I'm totally torn by the Reppo II Backpack boombox I saw on Yanko Design — on one hand, it's a cool hardshell design, white, great for hanging out outside with friends — but then I think about other people using them, and I can just imagine being beyond annoyed as I am reading my book with my headphones on David Lee Roth or what have you comes blasting into my little bubble. It happens now with people doing this with their cell phone speakers, and I want to tear my hair out!

So if you get the hot Reppo II, I caution you as I caution Long Island Ice Tea drinkers: Have fun, but be careful.
