If you’ve ever been the victim of a burglary, you know that terrible, sinking feeling all too well. You get home, and something is amiss. Maybe a door is ajar, or a window is broken. Someone has invaded your privacy, rifled through your belongings, and shattered your feeling of security.

iRig Micro Amp is a new portable, simple and easy to use battery-powered guitar amplifier with app connectivity and a decent enough power of 15W. This thing is perfect for everything from a bedroom or desktop to jamming with friends or street busking. The USB connection allows you to connect an iPhone/iPad directly or to a Mac/PC with the included Amplitube 4 software.
Another cool feature of this item is the fact that you may get it to go using only 6 AA batteries, which would cut your power in half but that still would be enough to get your practice going with reasonable power. It also gets you 3 different analog channels: Clean, Drive and Lead with crisp, rich sound plus all the regular main controls such as bass, treble, and medium. It also gives you the chance to hook up a regular player using a standard jack or set it up with your headphones should you want to listen to yourself more discretely. Well built and with a rugged look the iRig Micro Amp sure is worth a glance.
Get the answers to keeping those glass shower walls and doors sparkling clean

My friends recently admitted that they shower in their guest bathroom so they don’t have to clean their newly remodeled, all-glass master bath shower. There’s got to be a better way. And I think there is.
