    Apple's new proprietary lightning connector featured on the Apple iPhone 5, iPod Touch (5th Gen.), iPod Nano (7th Gen.), iPad (4th Gen.) and the iPad Mini has made your 30-pin Docking Station obsolete overnight. Ohhh the frustration! Your docking station was really cool and it you paid good money for it. Now what?

    Well, with our audio receiver, there's no need to throw away your 30-pin speaker dock or buy a new one. Aluratek's 30-pin Audio Receiver will allow you to continue to use your existing 30-pin speaker dock for all your bluetooth enabled devices.

  • Aluratek Brings Apple and Android Together With Products They Can Share

    It's been said there are several things one should not talk about at work, a first date, family gathering, holidays, etc. Those topics of discussion? You guessed it, the ever popular and endless debatable circles of religion and politics. You can add to the list the Mac or PC question. This debate springs forth another similar debate that goes no where - the iPhone vs Android phone question. You've probably heard the question posed to you about what phone you are carrying with either a nodding approval or a scowl. There are partisans on both sides of this argument. Unwaverning, unrelenting in their opinions and unwilling to reach across the aisle in a bipartisan way. Debate ensues without conclusion.

    Reminds me of a good article I read this morning from Business Insider titled: HEAD TO HEAD BATTLE: Microsoft Store Vs. Apple Store - Which Is Better? More Microsoft stores are opening including most recently in Corte Madera, CA. often times just footsteps away from an Apple store. Another good topic to debate.

    In the spirit of the election and bipartisanship, Aluratek has a collection of gadgets that will satisfy both sides of the debate to hopefully bring together Apple and Android fans alike. Check out our solutions below:

    BUMP Portable Bluetooth Mini Speaker with Built-in Lithium-ion BatteryBUMP Portable Bluetooth Mini Speaker

  • Who Needs The Lightning Adapter When There's An iStream? (Giveaway)

    You have the iPhone 4 (for me it was only a year ago when I finally gave in and traded in my "cool" flip phone for the iPhone) and its awesome! This phone totally changes your life. You can't understand why you didn't get one sooner. You think about how you got thru life without one?

    I can still hear myself saying I don't need an iPhone - I don't need any of those fancy do nothing apps - I just need something to make phone calls with - Look at all those people with their heads down in their phones, oblivious to their surroundings...my flip phone is just fine... boy, was I wrong.

    What did people do even before cell phones? People missed calls, pepole got lost, for days you would wonder why you friend never showed up ... anyway, so you have an awesome music collection stored on your phone and you've invested in a nice speaker dock for your home and maybe a portable one for trips. You might even have a stereo in your car with a iphone connecter in you glovebox so you can play your music from your iPhone (or iPod) through your car's stereo speakers.

    Everything was going just fine until a month ago. Rumors were swirling but you dismissed them. The iPhone 5 was launched (totally cool) but with the new lightning 8-pin dock connector effectively making anything you bought that works with the old 30-pin connector obsolete. Now what? Apple did create an adapter to accommodate 30-pin connectors for $29.99 - oh how convenient of them. Well, Aluratek has a device for the same price that will work as an adapter of sorts - The iStream Universal Bluetooth Audio Receiver - so whether you plan on upgrading to the iPhone 5, have one already or plan on hanging on to your iPhone 4, there is no need buy new speaker docks, stereos or multiple adapters to keep all your devices working.  The iStream is the perfect solution to stream music wirelessly from your iPhone, or iPad to any device with an RCA or auxiliary IN port to Bluetooth enable any speaker or receiver.

    This week, Aluratek is raffeling off an iStream to promote this cost effective solution. To win one, you all you need to do is go to our Twitter page, follow us if you haven't already and retweet the tweet "New Blog Post: Who Needs The Lightning Adapter When There's An iStream (Giveaway)?" from this morning (10/29) by Friday 9AM PST and be entered into the drawing that will be held this upcoming Friday morning where the winner will be announced soon after. Thanks and good luck!
