Introducing the New Bose® SoundTouch™ Wi-Fi® Music System

AsPhotographers |  We Are The Rhoads | Chris & Sarah Rhoads   Client: Bose your world of music keeps growing, the all-new Bose SoundTouch products let you enjoy it all at the touch of a button! If you have an existing home Wi-Fi network, you’re ready to enjoy Bose sound in any room you want; no extra equipment necessary. Bose SoundTouch devices can access music stored on a Mac or Windows computer, as well as Internet and Pandora radio stations, making listening to music easier than ever.

Besides music streaming, SoundTouch devices can be controlled by the Bose SoundTouch app for iOS, Android, Mac OS X, and Windows. With this app, you can browse for music; set up to six presets for one-touch access to a specific playlist, internet radio station, and more. If you have multiple SoundTouch devices the app will allow you to control volume and music selection on each separately, or set all devices to play simultaneously as a multi-room system.  Bose has also added Apple’s AirPlay so that you can play music wirelessly from an Apple device.

The only thing you need to decide is which system is right for you: the battery-powered portable system that can be easily moved from room to room (Bose SoundTouch Portable), the compact, easy-to-place system that delivers room-filling sound (Bose SoundTouch 20), or the best-performing one-piece Wi-Fi system, which produces powerful sound that can fill your largest room (Bose SoundTouch 30)? Whichever one you choose, Bose sound is just one touch away. Are you ready to enjoy rich, room-filling sound in any room you want?

7 Great Mother’s Day Gifts for less than $100

Show your mother how much you appreciate her this year with a great gift from P.C. Richard & Son! We have some superb electronics for under $100 that your mom is sure to appreciate. If you’re looking for a fitting gift you know she’ll use, keep reading!

Mp3 Player
Mp3 players are the most convenient way for Mom to take her favorite music with her. Many also come with radio tuners, so if she gets bored of what she had on there (which would be difficult as many Mp3 players under $100 can have as much as 8GB of storage, or hold about 1,750 songs), she can still listen to something new. Plus, they come in great colors! You can check out all the MP3 players we have available here, but we highly recommend the Apple 2GB Pink iPod Shuffle or Lyra 8GB MP3 Player for Mom.

Bose Headphones
If your mom already has an MP3 player and uses it often, consider upgrading her headphones to get the most out of her music. People with portable music players are constantly listening to them on the go, so they should be equipped with comfortable headphones with the best sound quality possible. Enter the Bose TRIPORT ear buds. Ear buds help drown out surrounding noise and this model comes with removable silicone tips to provide an accurate, comfortable fit. The sound quality of Bose products can’t be beat, and Mom will really appreciate them.

Outdoor Speakers
Outdoor speakers are a particularly good gift if you’re planning on having an outdoor Mother’s Day party, as the Mom can use them right away. Hook them up to a stereo system or portable audio player and enjoy the sound quality. If it rains, don’t worry—outdoor speakers are made for bad weather, which makes them much better to use outside than regular speakers. You can choose between indoor/outdoor speakers that look like speakers themselves or like rocks to blend in with your mom’s outdoor landscape.

Point & Shoot Digital Camera
If Mom already has a point-and-shoot digital camera, think about what model it is. How old is it? Does the battery still hold a charge? Does it take quality pictures? It may be time to purchase a new one. You’ll see what a difference an increase in megapixels can make (especially if your mother tends to take pictures from 500 feet away from what they’re shooting—you can zoom in and crop the picture and still have a great photo). Like MP3 players, these cameras come in a variety of colors so you can choose her favorite.

Digital Photo Frame
So few photos are printed these days and are never enjoyed off the camera’s memory card, so why not change that? Relive memories with a digital frame that constantly changes with a new picture. Transferring photos to and from the frame is easy with a computer, or you can slide a memory card right in– just check to make sure the photo frame you select has a slot for the memory card type your mom uses. Many photo frames also play music and movies and come with built-in speakers, so any media taken by a digital camera will be supported. You can even pre-load the frame with pictures you already have and REALLY personalize the gift!

Universal Remote
These days many people have a remote for the TV, cable box, DVD player, Blu-Ray player, audio/surround sound system, and more. These universal remotes are easily condensed into one with a universal remote that allows you to execute the same functions as their originals. Mom’s days of searching through couch cushions for 27 different remotes are numbered! We especially recommend the Logitech Harmony 510, which was also previously covered on our blog.

Wireless Keyboard and Mouse
Alleviate the headache and sloppiness of wires with a wireless keyboard and mouse for your mom’s computer. So many of us spend countless hours on the computer so you know that this gift, while perhaps not incredibly exciting, will be appreciated and put to good use. They’re easy to set up, too—just plug the USB adapter into the back of the computer, wirelessly link the devices together and you’re all set.

What are you getting your mom this Mother’s Day? Let us know in the comments.

Summer Gadgets from P.C. Richard & Son and Toni On! New York

Have you seen Toni On! New York on WPIX yet? If not, you should check it out. Hosted by Toni Senecal, this show takes you all over New York and dishes on the city’s best-kept secrets, tips, and places to go.

Earlier this month, she and her team covered summer gadgets at our store on 23rd Street. Brett Larson covered some great portable products we have available both in-store and at, including:

Flip Video UltraHD
“Don’t miss a moment of your time outside with the Flip Cam! These inexpensive cameras capture the moment with the push of a button and save from 1 to 2 hours of video. And, they slip right into your pocket when you don’t need them, so it can always be with you.”

Acer Ruby Red Netbook
(Previously covered on our blog as a hot deal) “This netbook will also come in handy for staying connected when you’re on the go. Netbooks sell for under $500, and, like this one from Acer, have Wi-Fi on board so you can connect to the internet while you’re away. Maybe do a little office work from outside the office, or just check your e-mails and surf the web.

(Also previously covered on our blog) “With FLO TV, you’ll be able to catch your favorite television shows wherever you go. The pint-sized devices tune into new digital frequencies and let you watch everything from news to entertainment shows. They come with 6 months of service included.”

“The latest PSP Go is smaller and just as fun. Games come on mini-sized discs that easily slip into your purse, pocket or backpack, and there’s hundreds of titles to choose from. Just be sure you pack plenty of battery power just in case your game goes long.”

Bose SoundDock Series II Digital Music System
“Take your tunes to go and let them sound their best with the Bose speaker to go. Just pop in your iPod or mp3 player and rock out.”

Monster Cable Lady Gaga Heartbeats High Performance In-Ear Headphones
“You don’t have to let the world hear your music with these Lady Gaga headphones. Yes, the Grammy Award-winning Lady Gaga. They’re the same headphones she wore in the video for her song Telephone.”

Monster Cable Dr. Dre Headphones
“If Lady Gaga headphones really aren’t your thing, check out the Beats by Dr. Dre. Drop it like it’s hot, Toni!”

Here’s the clip from the show:

You can catch Toni On! New York on WPIX Saturdays at 6PM.
