When was the last time you watched a home movie recorded on a VHS? You probably want to take a stroll down memory lane and watch your old wedding tape, holiday vacation, or kids playing in the backyard, but may not have a VCR. Now, with the ION Audio VCR2PC you can conveniently store these movies on your computer and access them whenever you want! You can even store them on your iPod, mobile phone, and other portable devices.
The VCR2PC hooks into your computer via USB and sends both audio and video straight to your computer. The EZ VHS Converter software can then convert it to store on DVD, iPod, PSP and more, or just store them in a folder on your machine and pull up clips on demand. The VCR2PC can also work as a standard VCR, so you can always watch your original VHS tapes.

While choosing the pattern on your dorm’s bedspread or the posters on your wall may be an important task when packing up for school, remember that it’s your computer that will help you get the grades you’re striving for. Your machine will be up late with you, helping you power through your latest research paper or programming project until the wee hours of the morning.
But, that doesn’t mean you can’t have fun with your computer, either! That’s why we’ve teamed up with HP to give away an HP Pavilion AMD Turion II 17.3″ entertainment notebook computer with Beats Audio and Beats by Dr. Dre headphones. It’s a perfect balance of work and play for school!

Have you seen Cyber Clean on TV or online yet? If not, it’s worth checking out. We have a few here in the office that we use regularly to clean our keyboards, phones, computers, cell phones, and pretty much anything else we can find to see just how much dirt and dust it picks up!
Cyber Clean is a soft, malleable substance that fits into all the nooks and crannies of any surface. As you press the substance onto your items, it takes on the shape of those nooks and extracts any dirt, dust or filth in its path. As you remove Cyber Clean, it captures the grime within the substance.
As their website states, “Tests around the world have proven that keyboards have a higher level of harmful dirt than public toilets and often store tremendous amounts of waste (such as hair, dead skin, food and dust)! A dirty and often contaminated keyboard, the remains of toner in the printer and other dirty objects can harm your health and seriously compromise the performance of your electronic devices. Cyber Clean is the solution!”

More and more people are starting to adopt downloading digital books for a greener and more portable reading experience. Sony Readers are one of the leading electronics for reading digital books, periodicals and documents. They use E-Ink screen technology for a paper-like display that’s viewable in direct sunlight, which makes them great for vacations. They require no power to maintain a static image, so you can read the same page for hours without sucking any battery life. They’re convenient with Sony’s iTunes-like Sony Connect e-store, and can display PDFs, ePubs, personal documents, and more. Hundreds of thousands of free public domain books are available from Google Books, and libraries are also beginning to carry digital copies of books.
Sounds great, right? Why carry a heavy book around when you can slip a Sony Reader with 300 books right in your pocket? But with three different types available from P.C. Richard & Son, which one is the best for you? We’re breaking down each version for you so you know exactly which one will suit your needs.

Happy Earth Day! Earth Day is a celebration of environmental protection and inspires awareness to our planet’s health every April 22. Did you know that P.C. Richard & Son promotes recycling, energy-saving appliances and green initiatives all year round? Here are a few ways we help protect the environment and some suggestions on great green products for your home.
What We Do
We here at P.C. Richard & Son deal with a lot of plastic, cardboard and Styrofoam with product packaging. We break down all cardboard boxes that hold all orders we receive and separate it from any plastic and Styrofoam that is also included in the packaging. The plastic and Styrofoam is collected and cardboard grouped into bails to be sent to a recycling plant where it is reused and repurposed. Our Deer Park Clearance Center alone sees four to five hundred boxes ever week and a half or so, so that’s tens of thousands of pounds of cardboard, plastic and Styrofoam recycled every year from our 60 locations.
