There are certain brands that can actually make us alter our schedules when they decide to make a product announcement. Apple is the most obvious culprit, but for high-end audio devices—and the most ridiculous home phones when we used to buy them—we come to a screeching halt for news from Bang & Olufsen. With their B&O Play line, the company is setting its sights outside of the fine Scotch drinking robe crowd. The first offering from the new line is the Beolit 12, a sophisticated AirPlay speaker for your Apple gear.
