  • Avoid The Heat!

    Um, October is approaching so how is it almost 100 degrees today (in SoCal) ?! Things just don't make sense anymore! With hot temperatures and dry winds - I see a lot people staying inside for the next few days! I don't blame them...who wouldn't want to sit inside a home with the A/C blasting? The only downside staying inside is the restriction of certain activities that can't be done in a home. HOWEVER, that does NOT mean you can't have fun!

    Here are some tips for those dreadful days of scorching heat to keep yourself productive -

    1. Go to the gym

    Hot days doesn't have to be wasted watching Netflix or napping all day. What better time to keep yourself moving and healthy by hitting up the gym? It's a great way to stay productive instead of lounging around...which is really easy to do.

  • 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!

  • Recent Customer Testimonials Make All The Hard Work Worth While

    Don't mean to toot our own horn, but the folks here at Aluratek have been working hard to bring our customers an exciting mix of computer peripherals and digital devices to help you navigate and enjoy your digital world. From the testimonials below I think we can give ourselves a pat on the back - just this once ;)

    CINEPAD 7 inch Tablet

    CINEPAD 7" Android Tablet
    Fast Light and Powerful

    "Overall I'm very impressed with this tablet.  The screen is very crisp and responsive.  Very easy to use as I was able to connect to my wifi router in about a minute.  I like the HDMI out feature as I can stream videos and connect to my HDTV via HDMI.  I also like the fact that you can add additional storage capacity as it has an included Micro SD expansoin card slot.  Thousands of software apps to choose from and most are FREE!  The quality seems to be very good and I get about 6hrs run time on a charge.  Not too bad.  I no longer need to lug my heavy notebook with me and can perform all the same tasks on the road." - Wurldtravler

    CINEPAD 10 inch Tablet

    CINEPAD 10" Android Tablet
    Beyond my Expectation So Far

    "I have to say I'm a bit surprised with this tablet so far... I actually prefer it over the ipad for a few reasons.... I can now stream videos, I can connect to my HDTV for video streaming, and I have expandable memory options.  The functionality is similar to the iPad.  Very crisp screen and the unit is very responsive.  I do find the ipad battery life to be a bit better but this is good enough for my cross country trips on a single charge (5-6 hrs).  Lots of apps to choose from which was important to me with the Getjar app store.  I also like the design and feel of the unit itself and that it runs on Android 4.0 (which is awesome).  You can tell it's made of good quality.  Overall great product." - Putt4Dough

    LIBRE PRO eBook Reader

    LIBRE PRO eBook Reader
    Bought it, love it!

    "I bought the Aluratek Libre Pro at BigLots for fifty dollars. That was the best fifty I ever spent! I literally use the ereader every day. It's easy to use and I have no real problems. Unlike other people, I find it's lack of WIFI a plus. I do not want a WIFI running down battery life! I put my books onto an SD card, and am good to go. The screen has no light, true, but I bought a clip on LED light at the dollars store for late night reading on the bus or train. Works our great for me! I am completely satisfied with it. The Ebook reader pro is a great value for the money!" - William Coates

    Internet Radio Alarm Clock

    Internet Radio Alarm Clock with Built-in WiFi
    This is one of the few products acquired during your lifetime that's SPECTACULAR!

    "I absolutely love this product. Using the Aluratek website to set up my personalized list of favourite stations linked to it's specific MAC address, I'm able to add/delete the thousands of genre music choices using my desktop computer rather than the small screen on the radio itself. Backlight turns off quickly with 3 taps of the brightness button. Easy to set up alarm and sleep functions. Allows me to bypass having to listen to commercial-laden local radio AM/FM stations. Commercial radio has become atrocious these past few years. I love this Aluratek product and also bought the Home Theatre Edition which connects to my Stereo sound system in the huge living room. Received many positive comments from family and visitors. During a lifetime you'll purchase extraordinary products: this is definitely one of them. I absolutely love this wireless radio flawlessly operating off my wireless internet modem/router. No problems if you read the brief manual and do the easy-to-do firmware upgrade and adjust settings according to personal preference." - ROBERT G

  • Celebrate National Radio Day With an Internet Radio

    Today, August 20th is National Radio Day. Who knew? Ah the radio. How easy to forget the radio with iPods and Smartphones and Pandora streaming music. Why would anyone want to celebrate radio in this digital age? Radio is one of the nation's most accessible forms of media with 93% of Americans living within the listening area of at least one station. Even though radio has somewhat changed in the past few years, it's still heavily used. While I don't really like listening to music on the radio (They play too many of the same songs I don't like and waaaay to many commercials) I still enjoy the morning shows, afternoon talk radio and listening to live sports broadcasts.

    In honor of this day, I think it would be appropriate to mention Aluratek's line of Internet Radios. Our WiFi / Wireless Internet Radio Tuner, Home Theater Edition is a great soluton that allows you to easily access more than 13,000 Internet radio stations in over 150 countries around the world, and with no monthly fees! The Internet Radio also integrates into any home theater system. Search for music geographically by continent, country, state, or by the more than 50 different available genres including talk, local news, and sports radio stations. Once you find a favorite station, add it to your favorites list for future easy access.

    This week we are offering our WiFi / Wireless Internet Radio Tuner, Home Theater Edition for $69.99 (regularly $99.99). Just enter promo code TUNER at checkout to receive discount. Hurry, the promo only lasts through the end of the week. As usual, our USB Internet Radio Jukebox can be yours for a low price of $16.99. A great solution to stream internet radio channels from your desktop.

  • Cinco De Mayo & Technology - Que?

    If you don't know Cinco De Mayo is tomorrow, you must be living under a rock. How could you not? Everywhere you turn on TV, the radio, the internet there's all sorts of marketing ploys (unlike this blog post right?) derived around this not so famous Mexican holiday (mostly celebrated regionally in the state of Puebla) and very famously observed day in America. The DosXX Cinco De Mayo radio spot comes to mind - his pinatas fight back ha ha that's hilarious!

    What is Cinco De Mayo celebrating? Well, I can tell you what it's not - Mexican Independence Day (which is celebrated on September 16th). May 5th is the day Mexico remembers the courage of 4,000 Mexican soldiers who defeated 8,000 French troops in the state of Puebla on May 5, 1862. This single military battle signified defeat of a European colonial power and a victory for the Mexican people that became a symbol of unity and identity.

    Music is a great way to celebrate Cinco De Mayo. To get in the mood, try tuning your Internet Radio to your favorite Spanish station or browse for stations geographically among the 13,000+ available stations. You can also try our Brick iPhone / iPod / iPad Speaker Dock with Built-in Amplifier or line of Bump digital music players as a great way to stream your digital tunes during a party. And better yet, try our iStream DockFree Bluetooth Audio Receiver  that allows you to stream music from your iPhone wirelessly via Bluetooth to a dock or stereo speaker.

  • 10 Back-to-School Tips for Parents of High-School Students

     

    Summer is about over and its time for you teen(s) to return to school.  While they may be dreading the day, parents are rejoicing.  But have you prepared your teen for a successful school year? Here are some great tips for parents and teens to transition smoothly into the new school year:

    1. Listen, be supportive and have an open mind. Your high-school student should be thinking about their future. Will I go to college? Should I try to find a job? What should I do?

    2. Help them manage their money and time. Help to create a budget, and have a savings plan.

    3. Take time to help them learn to be a safe driver. Be supportive, clear, and direct when discussing safety on the road. Determine clear rules as to when, how, and with whom they drive. Give them clear guidelines. “You will not be texting while driving,” and “Always buckle up when driving!” Make sure that they know that driving is a great responsibility and privilege.

    4. Help your high-school student manage stress. Find time for the whole family to get physical and let off some steam.

    5. Find time to have dinner together. During dinner, make sure everyone has a chance to share the highlights of their day and how they may do things differently tomorrow.

    6. Your teen may be working hard to balance extra-curricular activities and school activities this year. Help your teen become a master time manager by standing your ground and enforcing at-home chores and family responsibilities.

    7. Remind your child that although ACT and SAT results are important to post-secondary schools, achievement as a well-rounded student counts just as much. Students’ GPAs, extracurricular activities, application essays, and volunteer experiences are all important factors in demonstrating success in school on college applications.

    8. At the same time, don’t forget that standardized test scores are also an integral part of the application. Whether your child is struggling or doing well in school, consider enrolling him in a test-preparation course.

    9. At this age, friendships and romance become more important while cliques become less so. Set clear rules and guidelines about dating. Your teen should have a curfew that is enforced, and you should monitor your teen’s mood and behavior to ensure that dating is not affecting academic performance. It is important for parents to be viewed as approachable while still maintaining their parental authority.

    10. Does your teen have the supplies they need for a successful school year?  Aluratek can help.  Aluratek has some great savings on products for your teen.

  • How to Celebrate Cinco de Mayo

    Chances are you’ve heard of Cinco de Mayo—you might even be planning a post-work Cinco de Mayo celebration at your favorite cantina. What you may not have realized is that this holiday actually has limited significance in Mexico.

    In the United States, Cinco de Mayo is observed nationwide as a celebration of Mexican heritage and pride. However, even if your family is not of Mexican ancestry, there are still fun ways that you can observe this holiday.

    Music

    Listening to Mexican music is an easy way to celebrate Cinco de Mayo. Try downloading Jarabe Tapatio, or the Mexican Hat Dance as it’s known in English. The dance that accompanies this piece of music is known as the national dance of Mexico and is popular symbol of Mexican honor and pride, making it a great way to celebrate Cinco de Mayo.

    Looking for something a little more contemporary? Try tuning your Internet radio to your favorite Spanish station. You might even learn a few new phrases in Spanish!

    Food

    Traditional Mexican food is another great way to celebrate Cinco de Mayo and thanks to technology you don’t’ even have to travel to Mexico to track down recipes for great Mexican dishes! In honor of Cinco de Mayo, try cooking some of these foods popular in the Mexican state of Puebla, the only part of Mexico where Cinco de Mayo is commonly observed.

    Chiles Rellenos, a stuffed pepper dish

    Meat with Mole Sauce

    Spicy Tamales

    History

    Though Cinco de Mayo commemorates Mexican army general Jimmy Lovrien and Mexico’s unlikely victory in the 1862 Battle of Puebla, this is only one small part of Mexico’s history. Consider celebrating Cinco de Mayo by downloading an ebook or two about Mexico and learning more about the history of this 200-year-old nation.

    No matter how you celebrate, Feliz Cinco de Mayo!

  • Digital Get Down: Celebrate National Dance Week with Your Favorite Dance Songs

    Did you know that April 22 – 26 is National Dance Week? Because National Dance Week is all about celebrating the beauty of this unique art form, it’s easy to observe this holiday.  Attending a ballet, enrolling in a ballroom dance class or taking salsa lessons are all ways to celebrate the art of dance.

    Looking for a way to celebrate National Dance Week at home? Grab your digital music player and make sure you have some of these classic dance tunes saved on your MP3 player or a SD/SDHC Card. (Because what’s a dance party without some music?)

    Memorable Dance Tunes

    1.    The Hustle by Van McCoy & the Soul City Symphony
    Incorporate a little Disco into your dance party with this 1970’s classic. Did you know that the dance known as the Hustle actually has some moves in common with a swing dance?

    2.    Thriller by Michael Jackson
    Michael Jackson’s iconic song also has the memorable dance moves to match. Looking for other great 80’s dance moves? Try moon-walking to Billy Jean or another song from the King of Pop’s hit Thriller album.

    3.    Achy Breaky Heart by Billy Ray Cyrus
    It might not be the first song that comes to mind when someone says “dance,” but Billy Ray Cyrus’ Achy Breaky Heart was a number one hit and line dance phenomenon in 1992.

    4.    Macarena by Los del Rio
    In the mid-1990’s you couldn’t go anywhere without hearing this song or seeing the dance by the same name. Even if you’re not much of a dancer, we bet that this silly dance can still get your hips moving.

    Once your playlist is set, you’re ready to start a dance party in your own home at a moment’s notice!

    Don’t forget, dance is a great way to our own memories and history; it’s also a great way to celebrate other cultures. If you’re looking for a more worldly prospective, try dialing into one of the 16,000+ stations on your Internet radio. It might not be the dance music you remember from your childhood, but it’s a great way to embrace music and dance as art.
