RS Recommends: This Bose Bluetooth Speaker With 48,000 Reviews Is Finally Under $100

The waterproof Bose SoundLink Color II can play your music for hours on end and even connect to your other Bose systems

Bose’s line of wireless speakers, soundbars, headphones, and earbuds might deliver high-quality portable sound that music fans dream of, but finding them at a steep discount can sometimes feel like a bit of a nightmare — until now. Bose has cut the price on its popular SoundLink Color II Bluetooth speaker online, finally bringing the price down to under $100.

This is one of the best Bose speaker deals online and the lowest price we’ve seen for the SoundLink II this year.


Buy: Bose SoundLink Color II at $99.00

The compact Bose speaker punches above its lightweight frame with mighty sound you can’t always find from gear this size (or at this price). Though you’d normally have to pay $129 for the speaker, it’s currently marked down online for a 23% discount, getting you the speaker for just $99.99 — the lowest price we’ve seen for this top-rated speaker so far.

Put another way, it’s a great deal on a water-resistant Bluetooth speaker that you won’t want to live without. In fact, it’s one of Bose’s most affordable speakers. For comparison, that’s $79 less than the excellent new Sonos Roam (the company’s lowest-priced smart Bluetooth speaker), and $50 less than the retail price of another waterproof speaker, the Ultimate Ears Boom 3.

Rugged enough for the outdoors but small enough to fit on your coffee table, the Bose SoundLink Color II can pair to any of your other Bose devices (think: home theater soundbars and other wireless speakers) so that you can hear your favorite playlist, podcast, or movie in any space inside or outside the house. With the Bose Connect app, it’s easy to connect the speaker to your devices to wirelessly play your music when you’re on the go.

On top of its Bluetooth connectivity, you can use the built-in microphone for poolside conference calls all spring and summer thanks to the speaker’s 30-foot wireless range. And for a speaker music-lovers can’t live without, anyone working from home will be equally impressed by the speaker’s clarity when chatting on the phone.

Bose also packed the SoundLink Color II speaker with a lithium-ion battery, which can pump out powerful, high-quality audio for a solid eight-hour performance. When you finally run out of juice, it’s simple to connect to an outlet via the USB charger to fuel up the speaker again to play more music.

When it comes to Bose speaker deals, they’re not as easy to find (or happen as often) as we’d like. With over 48,000 ratings and counting online, plus a 4.7 star rating (out of 5 stars), this Bose SoundLink Color II speaker discount is one you don’t want to hit pause on. The Bose SoundLink Color II comes in a variety of colors, including polar white, aqua blue, and citron.

Shop the Bose deal on Amazon to get the 23% discount, and check out more of our favorite affordable Bluetooth speakers that music fans should own, from brands like Sonos, Ultimate Ears, and JBL.

Yandex spins out self-driving car unit from its Uber JV, invests $150M into newco

Self-driving cars are still many years away from becoming a ubiquitous reality, but today one of the bigger efforts to build and develop them is taking a significant step out as part of its strategy to be at the forefront for when they do. Yandex — the publicly-traded Russian tech giant that started as a search engine but has expanded into a number of other, related areas (similar to US counterpart Google) — today announced that it is spinning out its self-driving car unit from MLU BV — a ride-hailing and food delivery joint venture it operates in partnership with Uber. The move comes amid reports that Yandex and Uber were eyeing up an IPO for MLU  last year. At the time, the JV was estimated to be valued at around $7.7 billion. It’s not clear how those plans will have been impacted in recent months, with COVID-19 putting huge pressure on ride-hailing and food-delivery businesses globally, and IPOs generally down compared to a year ago. In that context, spinning out the unit could

Slack’s new integration deal with AWS could also be about tweaking Microsoft

Slack and Amazon announced a big integration late yesterday afternoon. As part of the deal, Slack will use Amazon Chime for its call feature, while reiterating its commitment to use AWS as its preferred cloud provider to run its infrastructure. At the same time, AWS has agreed to use Slack for internal communications. Make no mistake, this is a big deal as the SaaS communications tool increases its ties with AWS, but this agreement could also be about slighting Microsoft and its rival Teams product by making a deal with a cloud rival. In the past Slack CEO Stewart Butterfield has had choice words for Microsoft saying the Redmond technology giant sees his company as an “existential threat.” Whether that’s true or not — Teams is but one piece of a huge technology company — it’s impossible not to look at the deal in this context. Aligning more deeply with AWS sends a message to Microsoft, whose Azure infrastructure services compete with AWS. Butterfield didn’t say that of course

Elon Musk sends yet another notice trying to terminate the Twitter deal

Kristen Radtke / The Verge; Getty Images Elon Musk has sent a third letter to Twitter attempting to terminate his $44 billion acquisition of the company . Musk’s legal team cited Twitter’s multimillion dollar severance payment to former security chief and whistleblower Peiter Zatko as a violation of the merger agreement and a reason to end the deal. The letter, dated September 9th, was sent to Twitter’s chief legal officer Vijaya Gadde, and was included in a filing Twitter made with the SEC on Friday (which you can read at the bottom of this article). Last month, Zatko made headlines by accusing Twitter of misleading investors about the number of bots on the service, failing to delete users’ data, and having poor security practices, among other things. Musk jumped on the accusations, citing them in his second termination letter and subpoenaing Zatko to testify in the lawsuit. Zatko was set to be deposed on Friday. Elon Musk sent his first letter of termination in July , say
