With Valentine’s Day approaching, really quickly, Best Buy Canada challenged me to the question… ‘How does tech keep you together?’. Well tech plays a huge role in our relationship, from the camera equipment which has created a like minded interest and hobby, to tech savvy kitchen appliances that allow us to create incredible meals together. But what really keeps us together is sound, music!
Even just thinking back to our courting years music played a role in creating our relationship. Sameer would pull up to school in his clapped out Honda Civic blasting some kind of tune (yes he was that guy… and I dug it, sorry Mum). We would spend hours driving around listening to music, our fav song was Mary J Blige ‘Be Without You’…don’t judge us, it was a tune!
Now that we live together music is even more important. When I find myself drowning under piles of work Sameer knows the perfect soundtrack to lift my spirits (anything Lana Del Rey or Alt-J). On weekends we like to spend our time in the kitchen, cooking and dancing to the Gypsy Kings or Buena Vista Social Club… these hips definitely don’t lie.
Music can totally change a mood or atmosphere, music unites people, it can make you feel happy, sad or even sexy *insert eye wink. But it all starts with the right sound system. I mean you don’t want have to huddle around your cell phone in a bowl while your trying to rock out to Justin Bieber (again, don’t judge). You want music to fill your soul.
That’s why I love the Sonos ONE speaker. It’s convenient, stylish and is equally as powerful to the speakers that used to live in the trunk of Sameer’s car… Oh the memories.
Some quick facts about the Sonos ONE speaker:
- First Sonos to have Alexa built-in
- Which means you can talk to it and it will talk back lol
- Connects to all other Sonos speakers, this is cool if you have a multi-room setup
- Have different or the same music playing throughout the house
- Super sleek and sexy
- Only 4lbs.
- Integration with all your favourite music streaming apps (e.g. Spotify)
So now I ask you, think hard… How does tech keep you together?
