Citizen Eco-Drive Stainless Steel Nighthawk Watch:  The Citizen Nighthawk’s classic styling and Eco-Drive recharging function make it the perfect gift for the man who appreciates both form and function. At 42mm wide, the case is stylishly large but not overly so, while the black and grey color scheme will fit in at the club or the boardroom.

Bose Bluetooth Headset Series 2: Get world-class sound quality in a convenient hands-free headset with the Bose Bluetooth Series 2 Headset. Offered in both left and right-ear models, the Series 2 is engineered with the quality you’d come to expect from Bose. The StayHear tip provides in-ear comfort and stability while the noise-filtering microphone cancels out ambient noises so those on the other end of the call can hear you better.  The Series 2 Headset is a great gift for the road warrior in your life.

 Logitech Harmony Touch Remote Control: As the average home theater set up grows in complexity, unfortunately so does the selection of remote controls. With the advanced functions of the Harmony Touch, you can stow all those remotes in a drawer and enjoy the ability to control up to 10 components with one simple device.

Web Customer Service Top Picks

Wednesday, March 31st, 2010

Have you ever called Abt’s toll-free number? Then you have most likely talked with one of Abt’s web customer service specialists. Headed up by Carmen, an Abt employee for 14 years, the web customer service department takes care of both local and out-of-state customers on the phone, over email, and on the internet via web-based live chat.

Get to know web customer service specialists a little better; here are their favorite Abt products:

Christina loves the Mac Book Pro. “There are so many cool features like iMovie and Photo Booth. This computer is so easy to use and has a long battery life. It’s even got a sleek design, much better looking than other laptops.”

Neil had a hard time choosing his favorite product. First he thought it was our wide variety of batteries. He said, “Who doesn’t need a battery?” But after much thought, he decided that the Soda Stream starter kit would be the one he liked the most. “How cool is it that you can make your own soft drinks? It’s easy and fun for the whole family. Soda Stream eliminates the need to ever run to the store for soda. It’s less expensive than traditional soft drinks and it’s better for the environment.”

Tamar’s favorite product is the iPod Nano, “I like this item because I have the ability to listen to music as well as take pictures. It gives me the option to eliminate carrying different electronics. I can listen to the radio, too. This unit even tells me the song title and artist that I am listening to. The screens clarity is excellent as well.”

Joanna is a food enthusiast, she told me, “The Cuisinart Electric Sandwich Grill is the perfect product for me. It’s easy, quick, and the outcome is always delectable.”

Kate can’t live without the Dyson DC14ALLFLOOR. “I have a new toddler on the move and it easily moves from carpet to hardwood floors. It is easy to use, picks up everything and makes cleaning it a breeze.”

Joce, the frequent traveler, loves the VHoldR Contour HD, “It’s an awesome camcorder. It is great for my adventurers; I call it the no worries camcorder. Rain or Shine I am covered. Plus, there are additional mounts to fit my needs.”

Traci, the camera lover of the department shoots with the Nikon D 5000. “It’s easy to use, takes great pictures, and awesome video.”

Carmen’s favorite item isn’t a current item on the web site, it’s the iPod Touch 2nd Generation. “I purchased it for my son Andrew, and we both use it all the time. We can toggle through each other’s music and the ease of accessing my email account is a bonus. Luckily, my son doesn’t mind that I use it, and by now I should have purchased my own, but I was procrastinating fearing a new and improved iPod would be released. I’m glad I waited because I am hoping to purchase an Apple with new technology this year.”

Next time you speak with one of the web customer service specialists, you will know a little more about them.

Summer Cools off, Apple Heats Up!!!

Wednesday, September 9th, 2009

Apple’s new iPods are out today and if you have been watching or reading about them you know Touch has new features, and so does Nano, Classic, and Shuffle too.

Selling over 20 million, iPod Touch is Apple’s fastest growing product… New to the third generation Touch, Ubisoft is developing games specifically for the iPod. Apple dropped the price on the 8GB model, speculated to be around $229 to $199, it will be the most affordable access to the App. store. iPod Touch is priced at $199 for the 8GB, $299 for the 32GB, and $399 for the 64 GB. Touch is now equipped with OpenGL|ES 2.0—just like the iPhone 3GS.

iPod Classic and Shuffle only had a few upgrades, The Classic went from 120 to 160 GB, remaining at the same price–$249. Shuffle introduced five new colors and third-party head phones with the controls right on them.

The iPod Nano might have stolen the show today with the most improvements. Nano now has a digital video camera, (comparable to a Flip video camera) with a microphone. It also added an FM radio, and Genius mixes. Nano’s display grew from 1.8” to 2.2” and there is a built-in pedometer for Nike +. The 8GB is $149 and the 16GB is $179.
