Nothing beats watching a good movie or listening to some great music with a fantastic surround sound system.

My friend has a Bang & Olufsen sound system in his place so I definitely had first hand experience on how riveting the sound vibrates the room and makes you feel like you are in the movie that you are watching.

So it may not be the latest model that he has but the brand name itself  has proven over the years that it is something special. They are the oldest producer of audio equipment so even though technology has evolved over the years, they have adapted with the new and improved their products.

BeoLab 14 unleashes pure Bang & Olufsen B&O surround sound through any existing TV and AV receiver, regardless of what brand you own. This is uber cool because consumers are not limited to what brand they should buy in order to make use of BeoLab 14.

Its so called adaptive bass linearisation has been specifically customised to drive exceptional sound experience from very compact speakers while simultaneously protecting them from sudden bursts in volume which can cause damage.

By reducing bass throughput automatically in response to extreme peaks, it ensures consistent and unrivalled performance throughout.

Physical-wise, what I Like about the BeoLab 14 is that it is is designed to fit your home regardless of changes in your decor or your mood. Wherever you end up placing your subwoofer, a quick twist of the position dial will tailor its sound as effortlessly as its looks.

Against the wall, taking the floor or in a corner, you can check out their portal to get some good tips on where best to place them in order to get the best results.

After all, sound quality is influenced by many factors like the height of your ceiling, the amount of furniture in the room and even the type of TV connected to your BeoLab 14.

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of GetResponse Email Marketing for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

The best service is always one that is easy to use. After all, once a user finds it annoying and hard to use something, why bother continuing, right?

Back then, creating emai newsletters either require you to  be knowledgeable with HTML to at least create stunning and good looking newsletters. Even when email newsletter builders came into existence, the ease of use was and is always an issue.

I had some fair share of experiences making one and frankly, I gave up on them the second I found it hard to use. So people may say that it is not easy to make a newsletter builder that can create an email with a truly responsive email design.

Nope. Wrong. If GetResponse can do it, why can’t others do?

Ease of use. That is what I am after. That is the first factor I put importance to when it comes to using a service and that is what GetResponse delivers.

Whether emails are opened in devices or desktops, the resulting email newsletter created still looks good. And when I said responsive, one example worth pointing out is that all elements of a newsletter like images and text resize and rescale autoamtically to both horizontal and vertical position of the mobile display.

This is equally important because as a user, once I see an email in my device that is messed up, it gets sent to trash right away. From a business owner’s standpoint, I could be a potential customer but because the email newsletter was not presented the right away when I read it, they just lost a possiblec customer in me.

While making the newsletter itself, you can even preview it in real time so you will know exactly how it looks like right away. Also, when it coems to responsive emails, other services’ emails can dupe users into getting charged. GetResponse emails allows users to get responsive emails but at no extra charge.

With such functionalities, you can boost audiences and contact lists, build emails easily, send messages and even track and analyze results to optimize your campaign performances.

To sum it up, GetREsponse showcases a feature rich email marketing automation solution with a suite of innvoative GetResponse Email Marketing features allowing users to easily create beautiful and responsive email newsletters on the fly.

Proof that they are the real thing is that their service is used by big industry leaders like Hilton, Men’s Health, iStockphoto, GlaxoSmithKline and many others.

Why don’t you check out their email marketing platform? It is free to try which is a good start for you to see the intuitiveness and ease of use creating an attractive newsletter design can be.

Here is also a short video to see the service in action.

I wish Oracle simply included this feature so developers would not have to code it from scratch. However, I came across a custom made class called ScrollFreeTextArea from the javafx-demos website.

This class simply did the trick for me. So whenever you type a long text and it wraps itself or press the ENTER key for a new line, the height of the TextArea increases without displaying the scrollbar.

Here is the complete source code.
