The Connect Store Gets An Upgrade

Tuesday, January 22nd, 2013

The Connect Store is in the progress of an upgrade.

If you’re a regular customer at our Glenview showroom, you probably know we like to keep things constantly changing around here. Recent visitors might have noticed construction going on in our computer boutique, the Connect Store, and some have expressed concern that we were removing it. I’m happy to inform everyone not to worry, and the truth is that we’re actually expanding and improving it.

The new Connect Store will have a completely remodeled design, with new lighting and display fixtures, all intended to give you the best computer shopping experience possible. The room will also be expanded to accommodate more showroom area and a brand-new, dedicated classroom area where our technicians can teach you the basics about your new computer.

We expect to have construction completed on the revamped Connect Store before the end of January. In the meantime, don’t let our construction keep you from computer shopping. Our computer sales specialists and all of their displays have been temporarily located to the main floor of the atrium, where you’ll still get the same great Abt Service.

Attention App Creators!

Thursday, July 7th, 2011

Panasonic has already lured some big names to its Viera Connect platform, such as MLB and Hulu, but now the company is opening up to smaller developers who want to see their creations developed for the big screen. Their program went live in January earlier this year, but now the company is providing an easy path from creation to release for its line of Panasonic Smart TVs. Panasonic will still maintain final control over what apps make it to the Viera market, but expect new games and streaming video sources to start popping up soon.

If you have an app already in the works or an idea for a killer app, check out their website for full details and instructions.

All Things Apple

The Macworld expo started today at the Moscone Center in San Francisco. This five day feast for Apple lovers is going on now through Saturday. The expo features presentations, work-shops, and boot-camps on all things Apple.

If you are in need of an Apple workshop, and are not able to make it to Macworld, Abt offers two options for you! If you need extra education on your new Apple computer or laptop, come to CompTraining with our Connect Techs, once a week for a year, it’s only $100.

If once a week is too much and you are about to buy a new computer or laptop, try Abt’s Advance Start-Up. Apple experts will back up your computer and provide you with a recovery disc, add pre-purchased software, and so much more. The greatest part of Advanced Start-Up? Get an hour of computer training, with Abt’s Connect Techs, on your new Mac!
