Sony President Phil Molyneux Wants Your Help in Naming his Pink (Audio) Balls

Normally, the above headline would have us thinking about filing a restraining order. However, we're talking about the newly announced Bluetooth Wireless Mobile Speakers and the president of Sony Electronics needs your help.

Phil Molyneux, the president of Sony, is hoping that consumers can help rename the company's Bluetooth Wireless Mobile Speakers right before the product's official launch. Molyneux posted the request to the Sony blog, announcing the "Help us with a Name Contest."

All you have to do to enter is come up with a catchy product name and put it in the comments section underneath Molyneux's blog post. (It's probably a good idea to read the official contest rules, too.) He's promising to read each entry -- and will even send Sony Bluetooth Wireless Mobile Speakers to those who submit his top five favorites.

Sony's Bluetooth Wireless Mobile Speakers promise up to five hours of wireless music on the go. The unit has Bluetooth and NFC one-touch connectivity, so you can pair it with a smartphone or tablet. Other features include built-in speakerphone functions and an auxiliary cable for pairing non-compatible devices. Also, because it's circular, it boasts 360 degrees of sound.




It also has a really cool name -- or it could. Frankly, the contest thing is a really good idea. It certainly helps to get the word out about Sony's "pink audio balls." However, the name "Bluetooth Wireless Mobile Speakers" is downright boring, right?

"In my 25 years with Sony, we've tended to drift away from some of the more clever and catchy product names like Walkman, for example, and for two primary reasons," says Molyneux in his blog post. "First, naming products decades ago was much easier than it is today. You have bundles of trademarks, international laws, focus group testing and even packaging to take into consideration. It's quite the complex process, often starting with more than 600 options before narrowing the list down to one.

"Second, our model selection has increased greatly over the years, growing to tens of hundreds of products, which makes finding that one ideal name for each individual product much more difficult. We can't apply the same rigor in pinpointing great names for great products like our Bluetooth Wireless Mobile Speakers."

Consumers can expect to hear a lot more out of Molyneux, since he just joined Twitter. He plans to use the social media platform to share Sony news, teasers, random musings and more. Don't start following him to Tweet those contest entries; keep those on the Sony blog, please.

Of course, if you're not that creative, you can also buy Sony's Bluetooth Wireless Mobile Speakers. Sony is currently taking pre-orders for the product for $69.99 each. Available in black, white and pink, the company plans to start shipping the speakers on March 5, 2013.



Sony's Bluetooth Wireless Mobile Speakers will be available in pink, white and black.

2020 Lincoln Aviator Preview

The 2020 Lincoln Aviator gives wing to Ford’s luxury-SUV ambitions, with sensational style and Lincoln’s first plug-in hybrid drivetrain.
The 2020 Lincoln Aviator gives strong evidence that Ford’s luxury bona fides don’t start and end with the full-size Navigator.
Revealed at the 2018 LA Auto Show, the 2020 Aviator leaps into the niche between the Navigator SUV and the Nautilus crossover, as it revives a nameplate Lincoln hasn’t touched since the 2006 model year.

Asus ZenBook 14 (UX433) Review

Asus has revamped the ZenBook line with a whole new design, including a lighter build, redesigned hinge, and a light-up numpad built right into the touch pad
Should I Buy The Asus ZenBook 14 UX433?
The ZenBook 14 is a very promising shakeup to the Asus laptop line. It’s smaller, lighter, and better looking than any of the previous models, without having to sacrifice either ports or powers. There aren't many laptops around that can offer you a 14in display in a body this compact while still giving you USB-A and HDMI ports, not to mention a Core i7 processor.
Unless you're an Excel addict you can probably safely ignore the glowing numpad - it's a fun gimmick, but most of us will probably forget it's even there, and without tactile feedback it's hardly a proper replacement for the keys. Still, this is a strong enough laptop elsewhere that it doesn't need that gimmick to get by, and there's plenty to recommend it otherwise.

2019 Mitsubishi Mirage Review

The 2019 Mitsubishi Mirage challenges the assumption that there are no bad new cars anymore.
The 2019 Mitsubishi Mirage is a subcompact car that prioritizes high fuel economy, a good factory warranty, and a low base price over comfort.
It’s offered in hatchback and G4 sedan bodies, and is available in base ES, SE, and GT trims. We’ve given the Mirage 3.3 out of 10, one of our lowest ratings for any new car.

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse Movie Review

Nth Time's a Charm

If you groaned at the thought of another "Spider-Man" movie, fear not because you weren't alone. How many times can one character be rebooted or reimagined before it becomes insufferable? Apparently we aren't there yet, because "Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse" is a welcome breath of fresh air.
Everyone's history with the movies about our favorite neighborhood webslinger differs. Sam Raimi's trilogy has its diehard fans (despite only producing one truly great film) and the Andrew Garfield-led "The Amazing Spider-Man" movies were cut short when they didn't meet expectations (the first one is good!). Last year, Jon Watts' "Spider-Man: Homecoming" found Tom Holland in the title role, providing a fun, well-rounded look at the character, which had been missing for a while.
