    The next season the horns were removed form their logo.
    Hmmm, something seems off there. Wouldn't a bucking bronco with a horn be a bucking unicorn?

    It's spreading as well. People still use headphones, but others see the need to broadcast music. I walk at lunch and I've see and hear the bluetooth speaker users out there.

    I wonder how big the market is for bluetooth speaker-equipped RC cars and trucks.

    Haha, the saddle horn, maybe it's called something else? I don't know.

    Ahhh yes, a part of the phenomena known as entitlement, with a dash of "look at me" syndrome.

    It's not like this couldn't have been done 20 years ago with small portable speakers; it's just that people didn't.

    I beg to differ. Things really haven't changed. In the 80s having a bad ass Boom Box or Ghetto Blaster was a point of pride for young people. I specifically remember "Field Day" in my elementary school. It was the one day a year all the kids were allowed to bring their Boom Box to school. I recall blasting Van Halen 1984

    My older brother was in High School at the time and I remember that age group would always meet up in a local strip mall parking lot, park their cars side by side and have a Boom Box sitting on the roof of a car (often an Iroc or Monte Carlo) blaring music until the local PD would show up and shoo them away.

    Now I don't remember Boom boxes on the ski hill, but Walkmans for sure.

    Probably my most common stocking stuffer as a kid were batteries and blank cassette tapes.

    I thought it was obvious I was talking about the ski slopes. People really didn't do this in the 90s or 00s, or at least certainly no en masse. It's an entirely recent'ish phenomena.

    I agree, but I think it's due more to a change in technology than a change in people.

    You might be right. Carrying a Boom Box while skiing certainly would be a bit problematic. Meanwhile a bluetooth speaker requires virtually no effort to carry while skiing.
