When you buy a fine automobile such as a Rolls Royce, you have a chauffeur drive you around. When you buy a fine automatic Rolex, you store it in a watch winder so it winds itself. And now, when you buy a fine piano such as a Steinway, it plays itself.

Keeping track of Apple rumors is a full-time job. And I must admit that since I am not an Apple fanboy, I don't really pay close attention. But one persistent rumor is that Apple will soon launch a new headphone — and dare I say it — it may be an audiophile headphone.

Today, Spotify is a privately-owned company. But in a few weeks, it will go public. That means you will have the opportunity to buy stock in the company. The question is, do you feel lucky?

You just bought a Tesla. Congratulations! You, my friend, are driving the wave of the future. While everyone else is burning dinosaur droppings, you are propelled ever onward by the magical energy of the sun and the wind. Gaia, the primal Mother Earth Goddess, loves you.

If you're like me, you wake up every morning from a wonderful dream where you own a LP replication plant. In your factory, plastic goes in, and plastic goes out. Except that the outgoing plastic has magical shapes pressed into it. Now my dream, and yours, can come true.

Today is the big day. Or rather, today is the heavy day. The day that the Falcon Heavy is (finally) scheduled for blast-off. Yes, it might be scrubbed. Or it might just blow up. If it launches, it will be an important day in the history of car stereo.

The CES exhibits officially closed Friday at 4 pm, West Coast time, although a CES Closing Party was scheduled to run until 4 am. I did not attend that party.

They are popping up everywhere, smart speakers, that is. Harman Kardon has already sworn allegiance to the Cortana cabal with its Invoke, and now it is cozying up to Alexa with the Allure Portable. There is no honor among thieves or audio companies.

The dancing robots and talking smart speakers get all the attention at CES, but there is still a strong showing of traditional audio products. They don't light up or take selfies. They just sound really good.

Sometimes the headlines write themselves. Nevertheless, I have a certain fondness for wireless waterproof speakers. I take them out in the back forty. When it starts to rain, I don't care.
