    Chad's Crappy Corner & His New Theme For September, 2017

    For September, Chad's Crappy Corner gadgets will be decided by our loyal Patreon members. They can fill out a short form at suggesting a gadget Chad should buy and use as his “Crappy Gadgets Of The Week”.

    Using one of those suggestions this week Chad's gadget is the – get ready for the extra-long Amazon name --- Favormates Portable Wireless Microphone Karaoke, 3-in-1 Bluetooth Handheld KTV MIC Player with Premium Mega Bass Speaker, for Singing Anytime Anywhere, iPhone/Android Smartphone/Tablet CompatibleOut-Preforming our Competition with a Variety of Convenient Features That Will Make Your Next Karaoke Experience One to Remember.


    Favormates lists some of the features Multifunctional Control Button. Precise Volume Control- and echo effect control. Heavy-Duty Aluminum. Noise Cancellation –this portable Bluetooth karaoke microphone uses denoiseing technology that filters air flow and wind noise effectively, allowing you to always sing with perfect clarity. $14.97 and Amazon Prime.


    Chad's take: Well Chad thinks it's not as rosy as the color of the device. He said things like the combination volume/echo control are confusing and hard to use. Also Chad couldn't understand when the speaker was so wobbly at the end of the device. You'll see and hear it all when you view this week's show. Chad's final comment? Even though it features built in LED's, I give this device a big “meh”.... (So-so.)   --- It's $14.97 and Amazon Prime.
