  • Back-To-School Playlist

    Happy Monday!

    How many of you are students that are back in school? Are you excited to get back into the study mode and obtain some knowledge?! Sometimes, I miss school but most of the time...I don't. Haha! I definitely don't miss the exams, projects, and pulling all nighters! I had a really hard time studying because I would get distracted so easily - Netflix, Facebook, nap time...etc. But I know that one thing that really helped me was music. If I had the perfect playlist that could help me sit down in one place and focus, then I was good. I love that there are so many different radio stations that we can stream where we can create our own stations or playlists - anytime, anyplace. My favorite music streaming app is Spotify. I pay for the premium because I get to listen to my music on-the-go. Unlike Pandora or iHeartRadio (which are both very good apps), I get to create my own playlist by searching for my favorite songs. I have a playlist for work, at the gym, certain genres (hip hop, rock, classical..etc). If you are going to school, you probably have a study playlist...If I was still going to school, I would most definitely have a playlist dedicated for school and studying.

    Here's what mine would look like...

    StudyPlaylist2

     

    Only 12 songs, but the great thing about having your own playlist is that you can add more songs and my song list always changes! As you can see my taste in music is wide ranged! From Rihanna to one of my favorite classical songs, Pomp and Circumstance...whatever helps me hit the books and study guides is good with me!

    I also have a work playlist that I'm always listening to at Aluratek with our WiFi Internet Radio.

    It's awesome because Spotify is built into the internet radio and all I have to do is sign in to my account and my playlists are right there! There are thousands of internet radio apps and podcasts that you can download and install right into the WiFi Internet Radio!

    Anyway, happy studying!

  • 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.

    Woodstock1

    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.

  • Keep Calm And Study On

    To all the students out there that started their new semester or quarters, how excited are you to approach a new school year where you can gain more knowledge and continuously challenge yourself? I graduated 2 quarters ago, and I already miss it (minus the homework)!

    Prepare yourselves for long nights of studying, studying, and did I mention studying? Yup! Hours of being hunched over stacked textbooks, microscopes in your hand, calculator in the other hand…sounds very exciting! Everyone has their own style of studying. Some people need to be in a quiet room while others do well studying with friends. I was never able to study at home, so I would spend my nights at the school library with a set of earphones in my ears blasting music away.

    Here at Aluratek, we are rooting for all the hard-working students that are going to make an impact in our near future. So to all the students, hit the books and focus your mind with music to stimulate your brain cells with a few of our Bluetooth audio products! Let the words and numbers flow in and out of your head with the sound of your favorite studying playlist.

    Study

    You can find these items plus more on our website in the Bluetooth audio / Accessories section.

    I would like to conclude this post with a playlist of music anyone can study to! I promise it's not just classical music!

  • Cinco De Mayo

    Cinco De Mayo- A day about drinking beer and tequila, right? Wrong. Oh wait! Isn’t it Mexico’s Independence Day? Wrong, again!

    People tend to forget the reason why Mexico celebrates this special day. Cinco De Mayo is a day commemorating a victory by outmanned and outgunned Mexican army troops on May 5, 1862, during a French attack in the Battle of Puebla. This single military battle signified defeat of a European colonial invasion and a win for the Mexican people that became a representation of unity and identity. Cinco De Mayo traditions include parades, mariachi music performances and street festivals in cities and towns across Mexico and the United States.

    Music is a great way to celebrate Cinco De Mayo! Try tuning into your favorite Spanish station to hear all kinds of festive music, or you can try some of Aluratek’s collection of Bluetooth audio speakers! Digitally stream your favorite songs with our Bluetooth Wireless Speaker Tablet Stand where you simply place your tablet right on top of the stand and hear the music flow out of the speakers! We also have our Bluetooth Wireless Speaker and Brick iPhone / iPod / iPad  Speaker Dock with Built-in Amplifier that are small enough to carry around everywhere you go, and also packs quite a punch with their powerful sound!

    Happy Cinco De Mayo!
