Gadget of the Day – NXT Enterprise Workbag

Many a train journey has been spoilt by the tinny sound of a spotty oik’s music mobile ‘pumping’ out some sort of gloomy garage rack

Many a train journey has been spoilt by the tinny sound of a spotty oik’s music mobile ‘pumping’ out some sort of gloomy garage racket. Speak out, of course, and you’ll risk a stabbing. Do nothing and you’ll go slowly insane.But as we all know, actions speak louder than words, so fire off a volley of hits of your own with this speaker-equipped laptop bag.The most middle class of all supermarkets, Marks and Spencer, has invited flat panel speaker supremo, NXT, round for a dinner party and come up with this both functional and entertaining notebook transporter, with one of those invisible panels they do so well built into the front.And it’s a friendly so-and-so. The standard 3.5mm jack means it’s compatible with MP3 players, laptops and practically every other audio playing gizmo in the known universe.All it asks for in return for seven hours of tune time is three AA batteries. Then it’s just a case of picking Whitesnake or Def Leppard to begin your audio assault on those anti-social demonstrations of bad taste.
