  • Gifts Under Your Christmas Tree

    Hello! Happy Monday!

    It seems like days are flying by so quickly! Maybe I'm just really excited about Christmas? Either way, I'm not complaining because I love Christmas and the faster it comes, the better!

    I have to start thinking about what gifts I need to get my family and friends! A lot of people hate this part, but I LOVE it. I don't like giving away gift cards or cash gifts....just doesn't seem thoughtful (although I LOVE receiving them hahaha). I think it's fun to think about individual members in my family and what they would enjoy receiving! Luckily, it's not that difficult because most of them are tech-savvy and up to date with the latest technology! If you have family and friends who are also into technology, I think our products would definitely appeal to them!

  • 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

    AUCS06F_angle

    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.

    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!

  • Thanksgiving Shmorgishborg with Tech on the Side

    Thanksgiving is next week - no need to remind anyone here. So in looking to find a topic to write today I decided to just throw a bunch of stuff out there - just like a Thanksgiving meal. I am always one for historical facts so I looked up some facts you may not know about Thanksgiving:

    - There is no evidence that the Pilgrims ate turkey at the first Thanksgiving in 1621

    - President Abraham Lincoln declared the final Thursday in November as a national day of thanksgiving. Congress made Thanksgiving Day an official national holiday in 1941

    - The modern custom of having a turkey at Thanksgiving came from a marketing campaign to sell farmed turkeys

    - The turkey is the only North American bird ever domesticated

    - In 1784, Benjamin Franklin wrote a letter to his daughter complaining that the bald eagle was a poor choice for a national symbol. He argued that the turkey, with its habit of fiercely defending its territory, would have made a better choice

    - Farmers in the 1800s engaged in “turkey drives:” herding domestic turkeys along country roads to bring them to market, similar in ways to herding cattle

    - The American Automobile Association (AAA) estimated that 42.2 million Americans traveled 50 miles or more from home over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend in 2010

    - Minnesota is the top turkey-producing state in America, with a planned production total of 46.5 million in 2011

    - Snoopy has appeared as a giant balloon in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade more times than any other character in history. As the Flying Ace, Snoopy made his sixth appearance in the 2006 parade

    - The Detroit Lions and Chicago Bears have played a game every Thanksgiving (except between 1939 and 1944) since 1934

    So what role has Technology played in the evolution of Thanksgiving of the years? Here are some ways technology has influenced Thanksgiving:

    Football on TiVo and HDTVs - Football on Thanskgiving? No way, really?
    Skyping Friends and Family - Because it's almost impossible to get the entire family together every year
    Tech Support - You'd be surprised how many people spend half their holiday providing tech support to a loved one (me next Thursday)
    Buying Gadgets - Retail outfits and online stores will do their part: opening early Black Friday and offering insane deals
    Cooking Digitally - Everything from recipes on the web to digital thermometers
