Free iPod From Abt

Friday, April 23rd, 2010

Summer is almost here. I don’t know about you, but during the summer I love to listen to my iPod on long walks with my dog, on the beach in the sun, and bike rides too. If you haven’t gotten an iPod yet, or just need a new one, it’s your lucky day. I am giving away an iPod Shuffle to one of my loyal blog readers.

To enter the contest to win a Shuffle, simply leave a comment at the end of this or any subsequent blog post anytime between April 23, 2010 and May 7, 2010. The last comment will be accepted at 5pm on 5/7/2010.

The iPod Shuffle winner will be chosen at random and will be notified via email by May 10, 2010. Comments must be relevant to the contest or blog post. Entry is limited to residents of the continental US, due to shipping restrictions. This contest is not open to Abt employees.

Gadget Buying Made Simple

Monday, December 14th, 2009

This morning, Josh Davis, of Abt Electronics, did a featured segment for You & Me This Morning with Jeanne Sparrow, on WCIU—channel 26. He explained that gadgets and electronics do not have to be intimidating.

Giving gadgets for Christmas is simple and less expensive than ever before, Josh explains. The Bumblebee Bluetooth headset is just $9.99. In previous years, a Bluetooth headset cost anywhere from $50-$100.

Another great, inexpensive gift idea from Abt is the iPod Shuffle. At only $59.00 it can be a great present or stocking-stuffer. The Shuffle can hold 500 songs and the headphones talk, giving the listener information about the song they are listening to.

Digital cameras are a hot gift for the holiday season too. Josh tells me they have really gone down in price. The 12 megapixel Olympus FE-26 is only $82 at abt.com. Another great camera option is the Sony Webbie. It is both an HD digital camera and video recorder for $129.

Shocking to many, Blu-ray disc players have dropped in price dramatically. Onkyo has Blu-ray players for $124 and up, Sony and LG have models for $149 and up, Panasonic and Toshiba Blu-rays start at $159, and Samsung players start at $159.

If you still need gift ideas or electronics are still intimidating, call Abt or visit Abt.com and speak with a sales specialist for advice.

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.
