Halloween Movie Marathon!

Monday, October 24th, 2016

We love costume contests and and bags of candy, but one of our favorite parts of Halloween is the scary movies. When the sun sets and the wind picks up outside, there’s nothing quite like settling down with a big bowl of popcorn, turning the lights out and hitting play on a creepy movie. And while going to the video store to find a Blu-ray does have a certain charm, the selection of movies available for streaming these days means you can have your pick of literally hundreds of the scariest movies ever made. Watch them when you want, where you want.  To help sort through the myriad choices, we picked out some of the best Halloween Movies on Netflix . So fire up the Roku or Apple TV, there’s something here for everyone in the family!

Nintendo Switch Revealed

Friday, October 21st, 2016

The Nintendo Switch is the company’s first new home video game console since the Wii U

For years, while Sony and Microsoft have focused on crafting consoles with cutting-edge power, Nintendo has opted to emphasize the fun of the gaming experience. Consoles like the Wii and Wii U  were more about innovative controls than pure specs, while games like Super Smash Bros excel because of their addictive group gameplay rather than unbeatable graphics capabilities. Their newest announcement, the Nintendo Switch, looks to continue that trend.

Grand Opening of the Abt Inspiration Studio

Friday, October 14th, 2016

Some two years after its conception, the Abt Inspiration Studio was officially revealed to the public last night. Part visual spectacle and part interactive experience, the Inspiration Studio was created to be the ultimate destination for anyone shopping for kitchen appliances.  The idea for the space came from the same place as most of Abt’s historically ambitious ideas: the mind of Bob Abt. He wanted to build a space unlike any appliance showroom ever seen, a space that would elevate the idea of being just a place to buy products, and would genuinely instill inspiration in its visitors.

Bob wanted to combine the best of what he knew—providing an unparalleled customer experience—with the best of what others knew. So he enlisted his friend and colleague, renowned kitchen designer Mick DeGiulio, and explained his vision for a flowing space that mixed high-end kitchen appliances with world-class design elements. Mick was given carte blanche, and the end result was the epic showroom that is the Abt Inspiration Studio. (more…)

Bowers & Wilkins P9 Signature Headphones

Friday, October 7th, 2016

It’s no secret that Bowers & Wilkins is one of our favorite brands here at Abt. If you’ve ever visited out showroom, you’ve probably seen our dedicated B&W speaker gallery, or caught part of a movie in the David Abt theater’s 7.4 surround sound B&W speaker system. Their melding of high-performance audio technology and striking visual designs is the kind of philosophy we can get behind. So, of course, we were excited to finally get our hands on the Bowers & Wilkins P9 Signature headphones.

Samsung Top Load Washers: Important Safety Information.

Friday, September 30th, 2016

samsung-top-load-washersRecent news reports have discussed alleged problems with Samsung top load washing machines and their potential to violently break apart during use. Samsung has issued a statement in response, with helpful information to anyone who owns one of those machines. While no official recall has been implemented, Samsung is taking reports very seriously and is currently working on a response plan. Their consumer notice states:

“We are in active discussions with the CPSC to address potential safety issues related to certain top-load washing machines manufactured between March 2011 and April 2016. In rare cases, affected units may experience abnormal vibrations that could pose a risk of personal injury or property damage when washing bedding, bulky or water-resistant items.

Samsung is recommending that consumers with affected models use the lower speed delicate cycle when washing bedding, bulky or water-resistant materials. There have been no reported incidents when using this cycle. It is important to note that Samsung customers have completed hundreds of millions of loads without incident since 2011.

CPSC and Samsung are working on a remedy for affected consumers that will help ensure there are no further incidents. We will provide updated information to the public as soon as possible on this website.”

To find out if your Samsung washing machine may be affected, visit the following link and enter your washer’s serial number: www.samsung.com/us/support/tlw

It’s important to note that this only applies to Samsung’s top load washing machines, and that front loaders are not affected. If you have any other questions or concerns, please contact Samsung at 1-844-483-3881 (8:00am – 10:00pm EST, 7 days a week).
