Santa Brought Goodies to Some Special Families

Thursday, December 31st, 2009

During the month of December, Abt employees raised money for six families by having jeans days, a raffle, and bake sale. With the money raised, we were able to make Christmas a little merrier for these families.

Santa, along with his Abt elves, brought toys, gifts, stockings, and a turkey dinner from Jolane’s. The families were so happy to spend some time with Santa this Christmas. Everyone Santa visited was so grateful to receive gifts from their family wish lists.

Abt has proudly participated in the outreach program for eight years. We are looking forward to doing it again next year.

iPhone Experience at Abt

Tuesday, December 29th, 2009

So, I did it. I joined the iPhone revolution. I love the phone and now I get to spend time getting accessories and apps for it.

Yesterday I walked into the Apple Store inside the Abt showroom to look for a case. I had an idea of what I wanted, something stylish and functional. The Tech 21 iBand is the one I had my eye on.

Tech 21 changed the iPhone case market. The iBand is capable of withstanding a beating—literally. It is made from a material that is pliable like play dough yet when stressed becomes as hard as a rock. It will protect an iPhone if dropped from a two story building. Certainly, that would be the case for me. I also purchased a Switch Easy screen protector for additional security.

Admittedly, I was a little intimidated looking for accessories for my phone. It’s new and I haven’t used anything like it before. The Apple sales specialists calmed my nerves and were able to answer all of my questions.

If you would like more information on cases for an iPhone, iPod, or Apple accessories, speak with an Apple sales specialist today.

Clearly a Good Option

Monday, December 28th, 2009

Have you heard of Clear Internet? If you are thinking about switching to 4G WiMAX, now is the time. If you sign up for a two-year Clear Internet contract at Abt Electronics or on Abt.com, you will receive an Epc1005haeu1x Netbook, a $299 value.

A great aspect of Clear Internet is the freedom it brings. Unlike WiFi, wireless we are all used to, WiMAX isn’t limited to a small area like your home, a store, or school. WiMAX has region-wide coverage. With Clear Internet, you are able to roam freely and still get internet at ultra-fast 4G speed. Clear Internet will even piggy-back onto other wireless signals if you are out of range—so you can stay connected anywhere.

Clear Internet is currently available in select cities. If you have questions or would like to see if Clear Internet is available in your area, speak with an Abt sales specialist in-store or on-line, today.

Replace Your VCR!!!

Wednesday, December 23rd, 2009

Would you like to record your favorite programming on to a DVD? The Toshiba DR570 DVD recorder will give you that ability. You can also record programming from VHS tapes to DVD if you connect to a VCR.

One Touch Recording makes recording your favorite show simple. Just connect your DVD recorder to your cable box, antenna, or satellite box and you are set to record with the push of one button!

DVD recorders don’t require a tape for recording and they are far easier to program than a VCR. Most DVRs can record with just one click of the remote. DVDs are easier to store and preserve than VHS tapes too. So if you have tapes of family events or old movies, connect the DVD recorder to a VCR and you can quickly convert older VHS tapes to DVD.

The Toshiba DR570 is a great last minute gift idea for anyone—especially if you have someone on your list that still uses a VCR.
