    Sonos' Roam can pass music to other speakers reportedly

    More details of Sonos' portable Roam speaker are dribbling out, and they suggest there will be more to draw you in besides the size and price. The Verge claims the Roam will include a few advantages over the larger Move, most notably "Sound Swap." The feature can reportedly pass music from the Roam to a nearby Sonos speaker when you hold the play/pause button. You could start playing an album on the Roam in your backyard, for instance, and finish listening on a more powerful Five when you're ready to head inside. The Roam will also let you use Bluetooth and WiFi at the same time, unlike the Move. You could play music from your phone across your whole Sonos setup using Bluetooth You'll also get the same automatic sound tuning (that is, Trueplay) as the Move, according to the leak. And yes, there's IP67 water and dust resistance for those times you're caught out in the rain. Sonos is expected to introduce the Roam at a March 9th virtual event and ship it on April 20th for $169. That would still make it one of the costlier portable speakers on the market, but Sound Swap and automatic tuning could tip the balance if you're more interested in convenience and fidelity than raw volume.

    Vizio tries to go public, five years following its messy first attempt

    Vizio filed for an IPO for the second time this week, and its S-1 — the sprawling document all companies have to file with the Securities and Exchange Commission — is definitely worth reading if you’re a fan of financials or the TV industry at large. I say that because it offers a pretty granular look at the company’s business — we now know, for example, that Vizio has sold over 80 million TVs since it was founded in 2002, including just over 7 million last year. But it’s also worth a look because what has to be the best introduction to any of these documents I’ve ever seen, in which founder and CEO William Wang briefly tells the story of surviving a plane crash into a construction site. He said that “finally getting home” after that ordeal was one of the best moments of his life, and that from that relief and comfort, Vizio was born. In a way, it isn’t a stretch to think that trying moments are key to the company’s work — the whole thing was born in the aftermath of a terrible accident, and Vizio spent years taking on massive competitors like Samsung and LG. With that in mind, it only seems appropriate to take a look at the many trying moments that followed the last time Vizio filed for an IPO.
