One of the few complaints I have about the iPad is its speaker. It does its job during my late night Netflix sessions, but more often than not, I find myself cupping my hand behind its speaker to enhance the sound. At first, I thought it was clever, but now it's just a hassle. Fortunately (or unfortunately), I'm not the only one with this problem, and Matthew McLachlan has a solution: the SoundJaw Unlimited. This Kickstarter project is McLachlan's successor to the SoundJaw, which was successfully funded on Kickstarter last June. The SoundJaw Unlimited has a modified design that provides a bigger sound in an even smaller package than before. You can see it in action here: The design of the SoundJaw Unlimited allows it to be used with several devices, including the iPad, iPhone, and the Kindle Fire. For iPad users, the SoundJaw Unlimited should work with most cases, including Apple's Smart Cover. A minimum pledge of $10 will get you a SoundJaw Unlimited. With a month left, the project has already surpassed its goal and is expected to deliver its first shipments this June. This isn't the only accessory out there that aims to enhance the iPad's built-in speaker, but its simplicity and low price put it ahead of its competition. Would you like for Apple to upgrade the iPad's speaker in the future?
