Tech for the College-Bound

Study in Style
Whether you need motivational study music or you’re in charge of tunes when the party starts, the AUVIO Cube Bluetooth Speaker is just the size for the job. Available in four colors, this small portable speaker provides up to six hours of play time and features a built-in mic so you can make and receive calls while the speaker is paired with your smartphone. Be sure to download the free AUVIO EQ app to adjust volume, change equalizer settings, navigate your music and more. Find it at your local RadioShack retail store or visit

Cool Must-Have for Dorm
Anyone who has lived in a dorm room knows a compact refrigerator is a must. It’s a great place to store cold drinks, snacks, sandwiches and salad fixings. After all, nobody wants to walk down to the basement vending machine during an all-night study session. When selecting a mini-fridge, size is one of the most important considerations. You’ll want one small enough to stash under a desk but large enough to hold leftover pizza. Look for a compact fridge at your favorite retail store or online.
