Don't Procrastinate For Petey's Sake

Thursday, August 5th, 2010

Internet Access at Home

After procrastinating for months, I finally hooked up my Panasonic TVs and Blu-ray Players to the World Wide Internets. They gives me unlimited access to Amazon Video on Demand, weather forecasts and for my money, the best thing ever, Pandora Radio. I have been using Pandora for years, but only through my woefully inadequate computer speakers. Now I listen through my Definitive Technology tower speakers, which is much better.

After setting up some new stations, I learned that there are tons of bands that sound like Foghat and Molly Hatchet. It is like listening to one endless Southern Fried Rock K-tel album, without the pops. Even my parakeet Petey (yes that Petey, the stunt keet  from Dumb and Dumber and The Birds, but just an extra in that one) enjoys it. After  years of stunts though, Petey likes it loud due to severe hearing loss in both ears. I got the Lady Gaga Heartbeats ear buds for the little bugger.

So my suggestion to you is, if you have a TV that does connect the Internets, do not dilly dally like I did. Put on some Foghat and go for a slow ride.

A Review of the Miele S5 Callisto Canister Vacuum

Miele Callisto Vacuum at Abt

I just bought the Miele S5 Callisto canister vacuum cleaner. I was a little hesitant, due to its price, but after using it for a week, it was worth it.  The vacuum cleans so much better than our old unit.  I even tested it out the first night when I got home, at 11:30pm.  It was so quiet that nobody was disturbed – not the kids or the dog. I was able to use the vacuum to pull so much dog hair from under the bed, that I could have built a new dog from it! The Miele S5 Callist0 vacuum was definitely money well spent. If you are in the market for a new vacuum cleaner, I recommend any of the Miele vacs.

Apple TV Can Do More Than I Thought

Friday, March 5th, 2010

I asked Blake B., an internet sales specialist, what his favorite product in the store is currently. He told me about Apple TV. “It has some pretty cool and little known features,” said Blake.

Apple TV wirelessly synchronizes your iTunes library with your TV and you are able to listen to music, watch podcasts, and view movies all on your TV—instead of being crowded around your computer monitor.

“It can stream your entire iTunes library to your sound system and play internet radio stations. I think one of the features that surprises customers the most is Apple TV’s ability to display pictures using Apple iPhoto,” Blake explained.

For more information on Apple TV, contact Blake B. in internet phone sales or stop into Abt’s Apple boutique.
