Keep Your Fingertips Functional and Warm

Wednesday, December 29th, 2010

Sometimes I get a lot of grief from my friends for wearing fingerless gloves during the wintertime.  “You look like a hobo.  How do your fingers keep warm?” says my one friend, wagging their mitten covered hand at me.  I know fingerless gloves don’t exactly keep you as warm as you would like, but for me, it’s their functionality that warms me over.  Simply put, I like wearing them because I can operate my phone easier.  I have a touch phone and there’s nothing more obnoxious than needing to write a text in a pinch when you have to shuffle off gloves, tuck them under your armpit or pocket and start typing away.  It’s just easier for me.

If you still aren’t convinced and would rather keep your gloves, texting with your iPhone or touchscreen phone got a lot easier during the wintertime.  The company, Quirky, created some removable mini conductive pins that attach to the fingertips of your gloves and operate just like your bare fingertips.  So keep your fingers warm and type away.

The New York Times Features Abt Electronics

Thursday, December 23rd, 2010

Jay Goltz, a contributor to New York Time’s blogosphere, featured Abt Electronics in his recent article entitled, “You’re the Boss: How a Small Business Becomes a Big Business.”  In it, he writes of Abt’s history and devotion to quality service.  With an investment of less than $1,000 in 1936, founders David and Jewel Abt created a little shop called Abt Radio.  Over the years, with hard work and dedication to complete satisfaction, Abt Electronics has grown into a large, family owned business that strives to stay competitive and provides quality service for everyone that steps foot in their store.

This is just another bit of good news for us here at Abt Electronics. Earlier this year we were voted as one of the Top 10 Places to Work For in Chicago by the Chicago Tribune.  Our motto, “The Answer is ‘Yes’ to Any Reasonable Request”, will continue to be practiced for our customers for many years to come.

For more information on Abt Electronics, check out our history page.
