How do you surf the Web?


Surfing the web has changed a lot over the years. Can you remember the days when you typed in www.ebay.com and www.amazon.com, and maybe mail.yahoo.com and that was about it? Now people depend upon bookmarks and search engines to get where they want to, but that still doesn't account for the way people surf today.

What other ways are captivating the mouse click of internet users?


1. The random generated site engine like stumbleupon.com and clicking from blog to blog on blogspot.com have become much more typical ways of spending (or wasting?) time online. Not knowing where your going to end up is becoming a popular way to find things you just can't with search engines, and I think I know why. How else could I find cool things I didn't even know I would enjoy reading/seeing/researching or more importantly... buying. Sure you get a bunch of garbage, but all you wasted is a click right?


2.Social media has also become a huge part of the way we interact with others, but also find new favorites whether they be products, information, images or helpful software. Not only do we find things we didn't know about before, but we know that we can trust that its safe to click because our friends have already visited the site before! Facebook, Twitter, and Youtube are all great ways to be informed and connected.

If your running a business like we are at Amplivox, you'll want to keep this in mind.. but what do you do? Here are two simple tips...
1. Register your site on these types of sites
2. Make sure your site's purpose is very clear to the customer so they can tell in under 3 seconds what this site is and if they want to stay there, then give them EASY ways to look around.

Durability and Portability


With the desire for portability also comes a need for durability. Why? We're all klutzes from time to time and when you need to move around a piece of equipment your bound to drop or bang it into something else that you would have preferred not to. This amazing modern age has an easy solution that actually increases durability and portability at the same time... Hard Shell Plastic!
Hard Shell Plastic can be formed and molded into nearly any shape and form being made from a mold-able polyethylene plastic that both stands up to high frequency use and makes product casings lighter and therefore more portable.

Three Amplivox products stand out in their use of this durable light weight material... Our SW915 Digital Audio Travel Partner... our SW124 Roving Rostrum Podium PA... and our Pinnacle Lectern. Lets face it, we're don't all have a weight lifter's body nor are most of us world class trapeze artists, but lets make it easier on ourselves and purchase products that weigh less and can stand up to our klutz like moments.

Roving Rostrum: Two products in One


One of the greatest drives for invention has been the economy of the two in one. I own a device that is perhaps one of the most commonly used items that has two functions in one... The cellphone PDA. It saves a ton of pocket space to be sure, but why can't this apply to portable sound equipment and lecterns? Well actually It can.
Our SW124 Roving Rostrum Podium PA actually is a tabletop lectern, but its also a portable pa system with two speakers (angled for wider coverage) and a 50 watt amplifier. No more lugging around two entirely separate (and big!) pieces of equipment for your presentation. Bring only one!
Ok, but slow down you say... What about the cables, that annoying mic sticking up and carrying around this thing???
The answer is simple! The front speaker grill is removable and contains a storage area for all your mics, wires, cables, CD's or whatever it is you need to take with you! It comes off with a simple tug as its attached with neo-magnets... no screws to loosen here! You can even take off the gooseneck and store it here! So what about moving it around? No problem... The built-in pocket handles make carrying this thing around a piece of cake, and with durable hard shell plastic its sure to withstand almost any amount of punishment you can throw at it!
So go take a look at it now why don't you! You'll be glad you did.... http://www.ampli.com/sw124.htm
