Are You Ready for Some Fantasy Football?!?

Tuesday, August 10th, 2010

Yes, it’s that time again, where men & women disappear into their magazines and computers to figure out which QB is best for their championship winning team,  “Mike Ditka’s Powerful Mustache”: Fantasy Football Season!

Here are some things from Abt to make your draft day the best it can be. For up to date research on the best players, stop trying to draft Dan Marino and throw out that old Commodore 64. You need to pick up a new Sony Laptop like the VPCEB27FX with its Core 5 processor that loads web pages faster so you can pick up a receiver like Devin Aromashodu before your opponents realize his talent. You can then hook your new laptop up to a new 42” Panasonic Plasma TV with an Audioquest HDMI cable so the other teams can see your draftboard and wonder how they’ll compete with you with Jay Cutler as your QB.

Now that you’re done drafting, enjoy that success with some great food like wings fried in your Waring Deep Fryer, mini pizzas baked in your Cuisinart Convection Oven, and then wash it down with a cold one from your new Danby Compact Refrigerator.  You’re finally ready for this football season, just like the Bears defense is ready to punish opposing teams.

Don’t Forget The Small Stuff

Tuesday, July 13th, 2010

While Abt is normally the place that first comes to mind for large item purchases, such as appliances and televisions, don’t forget that we carry smaller, everyday essentials as well.

If you are going on vacation this summer, you may need an extra memory card or battery for your camera so you can capture all of the memories. We also carry cases for cameras & camcorders to protect and store those items on your trip.

For cell phones, we carry cases, car chargers, and Bluetooth headsets to make your day go smoother.

To protect your new laptop or netbook, we carry cases, mouses (mice!), and even blank cds/dvds for extra storage or to create a photo album of your latest adventure.

Do you need HDMI cables or a screen cleaner for that new big screen? We’ve got plenty of those as well.

And finally with appliances, we stock all the major manufacturers’ water filters for your refrigerator as well as specialty cleaners and surge protectors to protect those new appliances and televisions.

Remember that no matter if your need is large or small, Abt has it all.

Will 3D Be the Death of Standard HDTV?

Thursday, July 1st, 2010

Everywhere you turn, there is something in the news, on line, in a blog, on TV, really everywhere, about 3D TV. It is fairly pricey right now, as so are the accessories—or rather necessities, like 3D glasses, Blu-ray, and HDMI cables.
But, if you remember the early days of the VCR, DVD, and Blu-ray player, they too were expensive when they first came to the market.
Check out this article on 3D technology. Do you think 3D TVs are going to be the death of standard HDTVs? Let me know what you think!
