Get Loud!

For those that are using a Microsoft surface as their communication device you know that the internal speakers are not very loud. This can be a dangerous thing if you're in a loud place and need to grab someone's attention. For that reason, I highly recommend getting a portable Bluetooth speaker. There are tons of different options  out there. I personally have a Bose Sound Link and it is awesome for my needs. Plus you'll get to be a rolling dance party wherever you go!
