  • What Dads Really Want

    T-minus 4 days until Father's Day! Let's not forget about all the hardworking fathers out there! Father’s Day provides children and mothers a chance to express love and respect for their fathers, but sadly Father’s Day does not get the attention it deserves compared to other holidays (Ex: Mother’s Day)! According to National Retail Federation, Father's Day is the “smallest of the gift giving holiday.” Most people will gift their dads with a greeting card and apparel such as neckties and sweaters. Not that those aren't great gifts, but have we ever asked ourselves what our fathers REALLY want for Father’s Day?

    Although Father’s Day is fast approaching and probably too late to order a gift online to arrive by Sunday, it’s the thought that counts right? So if you still haven’t purchased a gift for your pops or hubs, swing on over to Aluratek’s website and browse through all of our products. We carry everything from Smartphone and Tablet accessories to Bluetooth audio accessories! We guarantee that you will find something awesome to gift your father or husband (what man doesn't love tech gadgets?!), and even though it might arrive a day or two after Father’s Day, he’ll easily get over it after he sees the thoughtful gift!

    But let's be real...we all know what father's REALLY want, but would never dare to say it out loud! Watch the video to find out!

  • June

    We have officially approached the month of June and big things are happening, folks! Where do I even begin? June is just a great month! First off, school is out! Students are celebrating their freedom as they plan their summer getaways, or just plan to hang out at home for the next 3 months! Sounds good! June is also a month full of graduations from Kindergarten to High School. Then after graduation, there are parties with good food, company, and awesome music.

    Let’s not forget about wedding season! Did you know June is the most popular month for weddings? Oh, and if that’s the case then there must be a fair share of anniversaries too! Yep, love is definitely in the air!

    Hmm…what else can we celebrate in the month of June? How about celebrating all the fathers out there? That’s right! June 15 is Father’s Day! Let’s not forget about how hard dads work! Father's Day doesn't get nearly the same recognition as Mother's Day, but we definitely appreciate everything they do just as much!

    Aluratek carries many different “techie” products that you can gift to someone you are celebrating in the month of June! Digital photo frames, Bluetooth audio accessories, smartphone and tablet accessories are just a few to name! Whether it’s a graduating student, bride and groom (kitchen appliances are so overrated!), or your father on Father’s Day, we have everything you need to give your loved one something they can enjoy for years to come!

  • 70 Years Of Perspective

    Having problems posting your photos to Instagram or Facebook from your smartphone? Can be pretty frustrating right? Those error messages seem to come at the worst time right when you need to let the whole world know what you're eating for dinner or when you need to upload the perfect selfie. Ugghhh, sigh, this is horrible!

    How about the problems of an American photographer in 1944? You could be Robert Capa, carrying three cameras and dropped 100 yards from the beach assigned to cover the Allied invasion of Normandy for LIFE magazine. Talk about putting things in perspective! This Friday will mark the 70th anniversary of one of the most infamous days in history. I am talking about D-DAY (day of days), the largest seaborne invasion (Operation Overlord) in history conducted by the Allies during WWII. This invasion changed the course of the war which ultimately led to the Allied victory in Europe...which led to your inconsequential problems uploading selfie's from your smartphone.

    Watch the video that shows how the famed photojournalist's negatives were almost lost, narrated by LIFE editor, John G. Morris.

    Read the article published by Time, titled: Robert Capa’s Iconic D-Day Photo of a Soldier in the Surf for more of the story that accompanies this video. Find out who that man in Capa's infamous picture was. Keep scrolling as there are many great articles about the invasion. Find out more by visiting the National D-Day Memorial website.

  • Walking Through Memory Lane

    I was looking through some old photo albums recently, and I found myself filled with so many different emotions as I walked through memory lane. It felt weird to hold a bulky book that contained some of my most fondest memories. Pretty old school. Then just this morning, I was swiping through images on my iPhone, and felt the exact same way I felt looking through my old albums! There are so many captured moments in photographs that can never be repeated again. Whether it's a spontaneous moment with friends, a loved one who passed away, or even your old, dorky high school photos...we all have our way of storing our most cherished memories.

    In decades past, there were photo albums, big and small made from leather cloth, decorated with gold, and bound down with porcelain hinges. Then scanners were introduced to the world with a great concept of being able to digitally transfer your printed photo to your computer. From there, you are able to burn them onto a CD or DVD. Then came memory cards, USB, and external hard drives. You can still do all of the above, but it seems that today's photo album is the internet. You can shoot images on your smartphone, post it up on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, or any other social media application. It's a great tool, and your photos will always be there (as long as nothing crashes of course!). Photographers are provided with a resourceful photo storage and backup system that will offer security to those moments we cherish in our digital photo collection. Online photo storage allows you to save your memories for ages, so that you can continue to capture more memories and take more photographs. I find it really amazing how much has changed from the days of adding hundreds of photos to a tangible photo album, to now where we can store the same amount of photos into a small electronic device.

    So my question to you is: Where do you store your favorite memories?

  • Global Selfie Update

    Global Selfie

    On Earth Day this past April, NASA invited people around the world to step outside to take a “selfie” and share it with the world through social media. Aluratek participated in this event by taking a photo out front of our office in Irvine, CA. Check out our blog post titled, "What The Heck Is A #GlobalSelfie?" Last week, NASA released the new view of our home planet created entirely from those photos. The project was designed to encourage environmental awareness and recognize the agency’s ongoing work to protect our home planet.

    The “Global Selfie” mosaic was built using over 36,000 individual photographs drawn from the more than 50,000 images tagged #GlobalSelfie and posted on or around Earth Day. The mosaic is a zoomable 3.2-gigapixel image that people can scan and explore to take a closer look at the variety of pictures. The mosaic is hosted on the Web by GigaPan. See if you can find yours. Better yet, see if you can find ours! I have looked but have yet to find it.

    Can you find your selfie? How about ours? Share your comments with us by visiting our Facebook page or leaving a comment below!

  • The Sound of Music

    Today is “Buy-A-Musical Instrument” Day! How random is that? If you are a musician in need of a new instrument, today is the day to get one! Or if you are interested in learning an instrument, today is your day!  It’s never too late to learn an instrument. People pick up music all the time as a hobby! However, who has the time to actually sit down and learn guitar tabs or piano chords? It definitely takes a lot of commitment and effort to learn!  We busy people would much rather relax and listen to music, right? And there’s nothing wrong with that! I actually play a few instruments, and I personally think enjoying some good tunes can bring a similar thrilling or peaceful feeling just as if you’re playing an instrument.  So it works out in the end for everyone! Yay!

  • Heat Wave!

    The heat in California has certainly been extreme these past few days. Regardless of whether these heat waves persist, it certainly started early. It's without a doubt going to be a long summer! There's nothing wrong with the weather being nice and toasty, but when the heat surpasses our comfort level...well, that's not cool at all (get it?)

    This is the type of heat that no one can enjoy which means more time indoors. Most of us would rather avoid the weather, and hang out inside our homes with the A/C blasting anyway. There are fun things that can take place indoors, and Aluratek has a few things to offer you to make life easier in this crazy heat wave!

    BUMP Bluetooth Portable Mini Speaker

    A great way to relax inside your cool home is by listening to some of your favorite tunes! The BUMP blue tooth mini speaker packs quite a punch with its volume. Pair to your Bluetooth enabled Smartphone, tablet or computer for your listening pleasure.

    Enjoy a good movie on your tablet while protecting it with a stylish case! The Universal Folio Travel Case allows you to securely protect your tablet as you transfer it around wherever you go (probably where the A/C is most blasting in your house!)

    Universal Tablet / iPad / eReader Stand

    If you don't have a case for your tablet, Aluratek's Universal Tablet / iPad / eReader Stand is a great way to prop up your device on our tablet stand when you're watching a movie or reading a good book!

    Bluetooth Wireless Sport Earbuds

    Who would want to go out for a jog during a heat wave? That doesn't mean you can't work out indoors! Our Bluetooth Wireless Sport Earbuds is built for you to enjoy music while working out. These earbuds are also sweat proof and tangle free to make life a bit easier!
