We here at Tailgating Ideas pride ourselves on rarely cutting and pasting press releases. Frankly we find it to be lazy. But there are times when a press release is just what the doctor ordered when it comes to announcing improvements to a product we have already tested and reviewed.
You may recall back in December of last year we reviewed the OutCast Jr Wireless Speaker. We found it to be “Tailgate Approved” then with only a few minor suggestions on how they could improve the product. Apparently they were listening and have added Bluetooth capabilities for the Outcast and Outcast Jr models. Their announcement is below:
