  • Music Festivals - Then & Now

    Today marks one of the most significant days in music history. On this day in 1969, the Woodstock Music Festival makes its debut on a 600-acre dairy farm in Bethel, New York.


    Woodstock was more than just a music festival. It was an event where young adults or "hippies" gathered together, rain or shine, to listen to some of the most iconic musicians of our time perform live such as Jimi Hendrix, The Who, The Band, Janis Joplin, and Creedence Clearwater Revival.

    In 1969, our country was going through a sad time where U.S. soldiers were fighting and dying in the Vietnam War meanwhile many who were not fighting the war at home were doing their part and trying to end the war to create a more harmonious world filled with peace and love instead of a hateful one. Woodstock allowed more than 400,000 attendees to create memories that made them feel involved and part of an historic event.




    Technology in the 60's was obviously not as advanced as today's, but the people back then didn't know that! Landline telephones and 3 pound Polaroid cameras were probably the main devices that were used and they still had the best time of their lives. Today we have devices that we use to contact our family and friends that can also hold thousands of photos.

    Today, it's so easy to get all the details on music festivals just by using your smartphone! Not only that, but the technology used during performances are simply amazing. Coachella valley Music and Arts Festival in California is probably the most popular music festival today. Inspired and influenced by Woodstock, Coachella attendees express themselves by mimicking the days of the 60's hippie era mainly through fashion.

    Although Coachella will never, ever come close to Woodstock, it still holds its own unique voice especially through the use of technology. From glowing, staticky light rays to holographic images of Tupac Shakur (which was AWESOME!), Coachella is a place to make memories for today's young adults.

    Here's an infographic that shows how technology has advanced from the Woodstock days to today's music festivals.

  • Olympics Games Technology

    Technology continues to evolve everyday and it all happens so fast! 4 years ago in London, the 2012 Olympic Games were taking place and the technology then compared to now has transformed tremendously. If you have been tuning into the Olympics this year, you probably have already noticed that your experience watching it this year is completely been enhanced since 2012. The technology that has been newly installed into stadiums have definitely made the performances of athletes more enjoyable and clearer for us.

    Here are some of the things that made their debut at Rio 2016 Olympics:

    Volleyball & Beach Volleyball

    For the first time ever, Rio 2016 will be able to use video replays to reverse a referee's call if it was a bad one. A second referee will be able to use footage to see if there were any wrong calls and all at the same time, replays will be displayed to the entire arena.

    Rowing and Canoe-ing

    GPS devices have been attached to every vessel so that spectators will be able to follow the rowing and canoe events in Rio with better detail from speed meters to showing which direction the competitors are going.


    We normally see shots of the weight lifters from the front or the side, but at Rio 2016 there is a camera dolly that follows every movement and angles from the competitor.


    Distance swimmers lose track of their lap count all the time and that can really distract them and get them off their game.

    At Rio, there will be digital lap counters sitting at the bottom of the pool of each lane so that when the swimmers hit the wall with their hands, the counters will automatically update the lap count.

  • Note To Self: Be Prepared

    My husband and I went to NorCal last week for our 2 year wedding anniversary and it was such a blast! We hit up Yosemite our first night and did some hardcore camping, then afterwards we drove up to San Francisco and Berkeley for the rest of the trip. We were very busy eating at popular local food joints, walking up steep hills to see the view of the Golden Gate Bridge, strolling around the college town of Berkeley and it was just a great time away from my world and the grind that comes with it.

    Although it was a very successful trip, there are definitely things that would've helped us out!!!

    It was my first time camping so I obviously didn't know what to bring and my husband camped many times when he was younger, but we still lacked important tools. Of course we had a tent, a cooler full of food, utensils, sleeping bags, but we realized once it was getting super dark at night that we totally forgot to bring a light source. Oh great. The fire we had wasn't enough to keep our area lit so we had to use our iPhone flashlights to get around! I swear, I was thinking to myself, "I wish I brought one of Aluratek's emergency tools because this would be the perfect time to have one!"

    AULED01F_angle powered

    The USB Rechargeable 8" LED Lightbar would've been perfect to give us some light while we were eating dinner.. (sigh) or even in our this smart couple below!



    Another tool we could've totally used was a portable battery charger. We completely forgot to bring a portable battery bank to charge our phones throughout the night and during our hikes at Yosemite. Not just Yosemite, but while we were hanging out in San Francisco and Berkeley, we could've used a little help from a battery charger as well!


    Another pickle we were in was at the house we rented out from AirBnb. I brought my own iPhone wall charger but my husband thought I brought his charger as well. So we were stuck sharing a wall charger for the entire trip. Aluratek's 4-Port USB Charging Station would've came in real handy.



    Funny how I work at a tech company that has all of these tools, yet I didn't bring a single one.

    I just want to say that I wish we were a bit more prepared, but nonetheless we still had a blast!

    Anyway, Here's a picture I took of Yosemite Valley right before phone died.



  • Comic Con 2016!

    Are you a pop-culture geek? You know, the type who lives for comic books, action figures, the next Walking Dead trailer? If so, then it probably isn't news to you that Comic Con 2016 is now over! Another year came and gone so quickly, but so many memorable events have occurred at this convention that people will always remember! I didn't get to go but thanks to the internet, I was able to update myself!

    Here are some of the best things that happened at Comic-Con 2016, San Diego!

    Do you know this guy?

    Yup. It's Kareem Abdul Jabbar! He is the NBA's all-time leading scorer and a six-time NBA champion. Oh, he's also now a writer. He debuted his first comic book, Mycroft Holmes and the Apocalyspe Handbook. So the hall of fame superstar was at Comic Con signing autographs and getting interviewed!

    Wonder Woman Trailer!

    First superhero movie genre to be led by a woman? That's pretty awesome. Here's the trailer to the new "Wonder Woman" movie if you haven't seen it already!

    Spider-Man Sneak Peek!

    Surprise 'Spider-Man: Homecoming' Footage

    Fans of Spider-Man were gifted with a sneak peek into the introduction of the film! Tom Holland and other cast members were also present to talk about the film!

    Walking Dead

    Oh my goodness. My favorite TV show! If you haven't seen the most recent season....please...please go watch it. It's absolutely insane! But anyway... :)

    Not only are the Walking Dead family super close in the TV series, but even off-camera the cast members are just as close. From Jeffrey Dean Morgan to Steven Yeun to Norman Reedus playing practical jokes as always, this panel of different actors and actresses is what makes a really great show. They introduced the new trailer and talked about the series!

    Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol.2 

    Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Vin Diesel, Bradley I need to keep naming names?! I mean what more do you need! The fact that Guardians Of Galaxy is having a sequel is totally worthy of jumping up and down screaming like a little girl! They showcased a clip and exclusive trailer only for the eyes of those who have attended Comic Con this year. Sorry - nothing has been released on the internet yet :(
