The Smartphone Market May Be Moving Towards Budget Phones

At AXESS, we've garnered a reputation for delivering cool electronic gadgets the individuals around the globe who appreciate the most cutting edge technology from the hottest brands.That's why we're always intrigued to learn of tech developments on the horizon, and this one in particular caught our eye.

 An article from CNET suggests that in the coming years, electronics manufacturers
like Apple and Samsung will begin marketing lower-priced smartphones designed for more budget-conscious clientele. Though smartphone sales throughout the U.S. have exploded since the debut of the iPhone back in 2007, the market is quickly becoming saturated, leaving many to speculate that emerging markets around the globe will be the next step forward.

Of course, with over 70 years of combined experience in the electronics industry, at AXESS we understand very well the importance of developing cool gadgets for every price range and need. Though we have been widely acclaimed for our signature products like the cute Boom Bug portable wireless speaker options that fit into many price ranges, many of our products are also Apple-related accessories and tablets for high end consumers.

However the electronics market evolves in the coming years, rest assured that at AXESS, we'll remain on the cutting-edge. We're excited to see incredible AXESS electronics brought to those around the world who never had the opportunity to experience them before. After all, when you have products as cool as ours, you want to share them with as many people as possible!

A Salute to Your Widescreen Flatscreen

There's no getting around it, the old, squarish box that used to sit in everyone's living room -- and once qualified as among the most cool electronic gadgets -- is rapidly becoming a thing of the past. Here at Axess, of course, we're proud to provide the best of these newer LEDs flat screens, but the fact that the widescreen television has become the default mode for television is very big news. That's true for everyone, not only for electronics manufacturers.

The fact of the matter is these kind of television are indicative of a number of subtle cultural changes. Here's one example. Even some non-cinema geeks are probably vaguely aware that, since the mid-1950s, movies literally changed their shape from a rough approximation of the box-like aspect ratio of the old standard television to the widescreen formats that are now standard for almost every movie. Now, of course, televisions are widescreen so that means that films that were once routinely altered -- and sometimes out all recognition -- to fit the old "standard" frame, are now very widely seen in either their original aspect ratio or something reasonably close, at least most of the time.

And the fact of the matter is that the movie-going experience and the home entertainment experience have never been closer. Even as movie theaters turn to an all-digital format, causing purists like director Quentin Tarantino to grouse that modern movies are nothing but "TV in public," products like Axess's amazing portable wireless speakers are recreating theater-like sound in homes everywhere. Meanwhile,  television shows -- particularly on cable -- never have been more interesting

All in all, we think this is pretty great change...and not just because we're lazy cheapskates who like to watch great entertainment in our pajamas, but maybe that's part of it, too.

Google Fiber Holds Great Promise on Products Offered through AXESS USA

At AXESS USA, we're proud of our reputation as a leading provider of cool electronic gadgets 
from the top companies in the industry. Although, we humbly admit we would never be able to achieve our sterling reputation if it wasn't for the work of some of the truly
 electronics manufacturers that design the products among our world-class offerings.

That's why we're excited about the success of Google Fiber, which is expected to launch in Austin, Texas by the middle of 2014, according to CNET news. The broadband service offered by the tech giant and first launched in Kansas City, Kansas, offers blazing fast 1Gbps broadband internet service. Not only that, but the company plans to hook up public organizations like schools, hospitals and community centers for free.

 We can't help but imagine the incredible performance that could be attained on our array of Android tablets with those internet speeds, not to mention the difference effect it could have on our Home Theater Systems. Imagine, an entire home theater that offers hi-definition audio and video all from one internet connection!

We're proud of the innovative spirit found in the many Google-based products we offer, a spirit that can also be found among our signature items such as portable wireless speakers. At AXESS USA, innovation and design always go hand in hand, and we're excited about what the future holds for our line of cutting-edge electronics.

In Praise of Headphones

The recent news about the (thank goodness!) peaceful transfer of power on NBC's Tonight Show from Jay Leno to Jimmy Fallon and from beautiful downtown Burbank to 30 Rock in Manhattan reminded us of the appeal of one of favorite cool electronic gadgets, headphones -- wireless or otherwise. In some ways we love them more than even regular portable wireless speakers.

Why? Well, once upon a time if you wanted to listen to your high fidelity vinyl record player after, say, 10:00 at night and were within earshot of pretty much any other human being, you were basically out of luck. Although headphone technology -- which allows you to listen to something very loudly that is all but inaudible to others -- dates back to the dawn of recorded sound, it wasn't until the late 1950s and early 1960s that electronics manufacturers began to introduce headphones to the mass market. Without headphones or earphones, watching the early Tonight Show with Jack Paar or Steve Allen meant keeping the sound relatively low so that we wouldn't be bothering our neighbors at the ungodly hour of 11:30 p.m.

Today, we use headphones to watch Jay or to listen to our favorite musicians at top volume even as kids and spouses sleep soundly in the other room, or to view an action packed Hollywood blockbuster at the volume the filmmakers intended -- i.e., very loud. Again, we can be watching that blockbuster at 3:00 a.m. without being the least bit rude to anyone. Of course, we might be better off sleeping at that hour, but isn't it nice to have the freedom to do so? And isn't freedom the name of the game for an electronics gadget company like Axess?

What's the Point?

We all love consumer electronics, but we think it's important to remember that they are not an end in themselves. The cool electronic gadgets we offer at AxessUSA are, for the most part, basically content delivery systems.

If there were no music or other audio and audio-visual entertainment in the world, for example, there wouldn't be much point to the headphones, home theater systems, and portable wireless speakers we sell. Without television programming and movies, our flat screens and antennas would not be worthwhile for much more than taking up space in the warehouses of electronics manufacturers. So, what AxessUSA and everyone else who sells and manufacturers consumer electronics is really doing is being a conduit for bringing content together with consumers.

With that in mind, our goal at AxessUSA is to improve the leisure time experience by providing the highest degree of quality we can in terms of audio and video and then, simply getting out of the way. Of course, that doesn’t mean we can’t dress up our gadgets and home entertainment equipment with attractive and sometimes colorful design. It certainly doesn’t mean we can’t keep adding nifty features. Those features make consumers’ lives easier and, yes, we admit it, they’re fun. And, when you get right down to it, fun is really what our work is all about.
