  • Tech Ideas For Valentine's Day

    Can you smell it? Love is in the air! Valentine's Day aka LOVE DAY is in a couple of weeks. Are you ready to celebrate this day with your special one?

    Let's be honest. We've all had times when Valentine's Day made us a little coo-coo. How could it not? We live in a culture where everything is commercialized and that can also include Thanksgiving and Christmas! Valentine's Day is a day that is consumed with ads for cards, jewelry and romantic dinners that you need to make reservations for at least 2 weeks to a month in advance!

    Many think Valentine's Day is terrible because we should show our appreciation towards that special person everyday instead of just on one day. I used to think that way as well, but the more I'm "adulting" the less I'm able to think about my husband. Not that I don't think about him, but life gets so busy that you forget about the one person that is helping you persevere and pushing you through life.

    Instead of doing the common Valentine's Day things (unless that's what you 2 enjoy doing), why not participate in activities that define you as a couple?! And if you're following our blog and our social media apps, you must somewhat be into tech, right?

    So, Here's a list of fun techy/geeky things you can your loved one can do for Valentine's day -

    1. I love spontaneity. I love the unexpected and so does my husband. Why not be spontaneous with your special one and sing a duet at a karaoke bar? Might I recommend "Take My Breath Away" by Berlin? LOL

    2. Go on a photo scavenger hunt! Each of you writes down a random clue, rhyme, or atbstract fact about 3 locations (preferably a location with a nice memory), then exchange clues and have the other person take photos based on the clues received!

    3. Do you Instagram? What about your partner? Of course you do! Whether you or your special person is an avid Instagrammer with thousand of millions of followers, or just an everyday user - whether they're candid, posed, filled with smoochies or landscape shot they are all great photos with lots of memories that you can look back on and can't help but smile. Why not collect some of your partner's best photos off of their Instagram account and print out a photo book as a gift? Chatbooks offers this service for only $8! You can even print your own book at home or create a fun scrapbook.

    4. Create funny GIFs of your favorite memories together!

    *GEEK ALERT!!!!*

    5. Bake Lembas bread and have a Lord Of The Rings marathon at home. Okay - this sounds amazing.

  • I Have A Dream

    "I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed - we hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal."

    Today we reflect on the legacy of Martin Luther King Jr and how his movement brought a powerful vision on racial equality and peace.

    On August 28, 1963, history was made. Martin Luther King delivered one of the most memorable speeches that is still instantly recognizable even four decades later. "I Have A Dream" speech was given at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington DC with a number of 250,000 supporters present as they heard his dream.

    Newscasters were preparing for riots and fights however what was so amazing is that the outcome of his speech ended in peace especially with the number of attendees. The entire 17 minute speech was televised live and captured raw emotions of Dr King's speech and it's effect on all who were there to witness history being made. It's quite amazing how so many people were there in person to listen to his speech but even quite mind blowing that MILLIONS more were watching it on live television. This speech reached out to millions of people and even on small television, people felt the impact this speech would have on society- even those who supported segregation.

  • National Clean Off Your Desk Day

    It's a new year - we spend these early moments of the year trying our best to start things fresh to push ourselves to be the best we can be. Whether it's exercising more often, eating cleaner, studying harder, quitting certain habits - we all have to start somewhere.

    Today is National Clean Off Your Desk Day! I think I stress out a little more than I need to when it comes to keeping things tidy and organized. Just take a look at my work desk:

    IMG_6080

    ...and this is my desk when it's SEMI-ORGANIZED...ya- it's terrible!

    So definitely a resolution of mine is to clear my work desk so I don't have to stress out searching for important papers! If you guys are struggling aside with me - we have a few products that may be the solution to all your problems :

    Mini Surge Dual USB Charging Station

    Our Mini Surge Dual USB Charging Station is really actually perfect if you need to charge multiple devices at once. It gives you 6 ports which I think is more then enough! This will keep all your cables in one place instead of cluttered around your desk or your room.

    10 inch Digital Photo Frame with Motion Sensor and 4GB Built-in Memory

    ADMSF310F_front angle

    If you have a clutter of photo frames sitting around your desk of your family, friends, your dog - combine all those photos and MORE into only ONE frame with our Digital Photo Frames! Simply transfer 4GB worth of photos into our frames and make some room on your desk.

    This is one of our newest products that's just been released and I have to say that it's pretty awesome. Our WiFi Internet Radio is a hybrid of many things as it contains features such as an alarm clock, calendar, memo pad, social media apps, and the main feature which is the internet radio where you can stream music from Pandora, Spotify, iHeartRadio and more! You can even download podcast episodes - Greg and I spent all last week listening to This American Life's Serial with Sarah Koenig! Because this WiFi Internet Radio has so much in it, it's allowing you to eliminate unnecessary things on your desk such as a organizer/planner, an actual desk clock, speakers, radios, etc. Just prop it on your desk and enjoy!

  • 5 New Year's Tech Resolutions

    Every year we write a list of things we want to accomplish for the next year to come. This may involve eating healthier, losing weight, quit smoking and the list goes on and on. A resolution's purpose is to better yourself especially with habits that aren't quite so good for you. As the years go by, technology is getting more advanced and so easy to access with the touch of a smartphone or tablet. How often are our eyes glued to the screen? How often do we spend time outside of the digital world and appreciate and take in all the great things life has to offer other than technology?

    If you know that you are a addicted to your gadgets here are 5 solutions you can jot down for your New Year's resolution!

    1. Organize your bookmark links on your web browsers!

    This may seem tedious, but believe me it helps! Time is everything so if you can save some at all, organizing your bookmarks into folders and naming them accordingly will make your searches a lot faster instead of tirelessly scrolling through all of them.

    2. Social media addiction?

    Addicted to Twitter? Find most of your time scrolling through your Instagram page? What a big time waster if that's all you do! Rearrange your most used social media apps from your home screen to the second page of your phone. The little extra effort to get to the 2nd page makes a huge difference.

    3. Push the notifications away!

    The purpose of push notifications is to interrupt you. I hate them so much! Unless you get in trouble from your spouse, family members, friends or even getting terminated at work for missing the notifications, I encourage you to turn all of them off. Oh and also since we're already on the topic, if you're busy at work, school or just preoccupied with other things and do not want to be bothered with phone calls or text messages, there is a Do Not Disturb tab on the iPhone that holds off all calls and text messages when you activate it.

    4. Get a real alarm clock!

    Stay away from the alarm clock system on your smartphone or tablet. Waking up in the morning is already hard enough so would you want to add more stress being woken up with work emails and other internet nuisances? Get an alarm clock. Remember those? They're not that expensive and you can even find ones with creative and funny features such as the Defuse-A-Bomb alarm clock.

    Here at Aluratek we also offer a nifty WiFi Internet Radio alarm clock that we know you will love!

    WiFi Internet Radio

    5. Disconnect before bedtime

    Sleep does a body good and is VERY important so turn off devices and wind down peacefully without the disturbance and distraction of your smartphone or tablet. This one is probably the most difficult as I like to fall asleep to a movie or TV show on Netflix, but let's be honest...it's the reason why I don't get enough sleep!

    I encourage and challenge everyone including myself to add at least one of these tech resolutions to your list this year! Good luck and happy new year!

  • 3 Star Wars Technology Realities

    Star Wars. Yes the craze is all to real and it's very exciting! I personally have not seen it yet (movie ticket lines are ridiculous) but I've heard great things so far.

    All the special effects that went into the old school Star Wars films were pretty insane considering it was made during the 70's and 80's but as you notice, the effects get better and better as each movie is released due to the advancement of film technology. Some of the creations in Star Wars is something that we wish were real so we can have our own and you know what? That wish might actually come true.

    Here are 3 Star Wars technologies that could possibly be turned into a reality, maybe:

    Lightsabers

    The infamous Lightsaber is probably the most iconic weapon in the sci-fi world. Each Lightsaber is said that is is powered by quasi-mystical kyber crystal, which resonates both with the Force and with its individual Jedi or Sith. Now that sounds kind of silly - how can this possibly become a reality? Well it hasn't been figured out 100% yet, but back in 2013 researchers at Harvard and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology managed to get molecules together creating a state of matter that had previously only been hypothetical. Hopefully one day...

    Imperial Walkers

    Legend tells that George Lucas' idea for the Imperial Walker sparked from giant cargo lifters he saw on the San Francisco Bay. Adding to that idea, Boston Dynamics' BigDog robot and the Imperial Walker are very similar in scale and style. The BigDog is very mobile as it can run, climb steep slopes and carry more than 300 pounds of cargo.

    Hyperdrive

    Han Solo's many dangerous escapes in the original trilogy involved the super duper HYPERDRIVE engine that allow the ships to zoom across the galaxy to different planets with a speed that's faster than light (FTL)!

    We are no where close to hyperdrive technology however NASA is indeed investigating an "impossible" alternative technology. The electromagnetic propulsion drive takes energy directly into thrust and continues to be tested.

    So for all you Star Wars fans, don't lose hope! Maybe someday one of these high-tech concepts will become a reality!

    With that said - Aluratek hopes you all enjoy your holidays with your loved ones! Happy holidays and may the force be with you!
