Today is Friday, perfect weather outside, the beginning of long waited weekend. Imagine how you sit in the evening on barbecue with good friends from old years. One of them recalls a favorite song from school, but can’t remind the title. You remember the name, because you have even a whole album on your computer at home. Everybody breathe a sigh, how great it would be to listen to this now, but you will not come back home in the middle of the grill just for one song. How many situations like this had you in the past?

Today world is changing for the better thanks to companies like Akasa. With a wireless docking station Akasa DuoDock X WiFi you can connect at barbecue to your home music collection. One click with your finger on smartphone and you have access to all your albums. You plug phone into friends speakers and play favorite song of the old crew. All of a sudden everybody stopped talking, this moment when the melody begins, this smile on everyone faces, all those memories of crazy stuff you have done together with this music in the old times. Moments like this are priceless in life.
