MUTANTS. THEY’RE ALL AROUND US!

GGBSRST100BKUS_MainMutants. They are defined as an “organism or new genetic character arising or resulting from an instance of mutation, which is a base-pair sequence change within the DNA of a gene or chromosome of an organism.” Mutations are seen as an important step in the process of evolution.

When you think of mutants, I’m sure the first thing that comes to mind is the X-Men Comics or Movies. In addition to those fictional mutants, there are many real life mutants living amongst us. Finnish Olympic skiing champion Eero Mantyranta had a mutation which resulted in his ability to carry 50 percent more oxygen in his bloodstream, essentially giving him super endurance. Actor Marilu Henner has a mutation called hyperthymesia which allows her to remember every detail, big or small, of her entire life. One of the craziest mutants in the animal kingdom is the platypus. The platypus is equipped with a duck bill, beaver tail, otter foot and the ability to lay eggs, all while boasting intense venom capable of causing severe pain to humans. Points being that many mutants still walk alongside us today!

Why all the mutant talk? In the last few weeks, we at GOgroove came to the realization that we too have a mutant walking amongst us; the GOgroove BlueSYNC RST. On the surface it looks like your run-of-the-mill alarm clock. You couldn’t be more wrong. In addition to telling time and waking you up in the morning, the BlueSYNC RST functions as a Bluetooth Speaker, FM Radio, USB Charger and Viewing Stand! The RST features NFC capabilities, A2DP and AVRCP for high-fidelity audio transmission, plus onboard controls for pairing, volume control, pause, play, and even answering / ending a phone call. At second glance, this kind of puts the platypus to shame huh?

With mutants on your mind and the RST telling time, take this opportunity to get your hands on one of the most well-rounded mutants of our time. Like all GOgroove products, the BlueSYNC RST is backed with a 3 Year Manufacturer’s Warranty. Find all the information you need on the BlueSYNC RST and other GOgroove products at www.gogroove.com.

The BlueSYNC RGD has the power to save your life

Imagine, if you will, the following scenario:

Feral eyes drilling menacingly into your own. A sleek, tawny mountain lion has just stepped into the trail quietly and pauses to regard you. With a slight tremble in your hands, you reach behind you for something to scare off the wild animal.

Mountain Lion!
Mountain Lion!

Just moments before, dusk was settling on the empty hiking trail. You’d been hiking for several hours now and there have been few other travelers that have passed by. It was beginning to get eerily quiet.

You were thinking, it’s a little too quiet, so you reached for the handy BlueSYNC RGD attached to your backpack by its convenient built-in metal hoop. This lightweight but durable speaker has taken a lot of rough handling over the past few weeks but nothing seems to phase it. Even a recent flash of light rain doesn’t seem to have affected this thing, and it’s been a great companion for a lonely trail.

Flipping the switch to the on position, you were looking for your iPhone when the mountain lion suddenly appeared. At that moment you realized the BlueSYNC RGD is already paired with your iPhone so there’s no need to fish for it. Heck, your iPhone could be up to 33 feet away and the RGD would still work without directly accessing the phone.

A quick movement behind you finds the play button located in the center of the device. You turn up the volume dial to maximum as the speaker belts out the last song you were listening to, “Don’t act like you forgot, I call the shots, shots, shots, Like blah, brrap, brrap. Pay me what you owe me, don’t act like you forgot.”

As the soulful strains of Rihanna’s hit single blast from the powerful, yet portable RGD, the mountain lion’s expression changes to one of surprise and fear. The lion decides its prey is not worth the trouble of having to endure Rihanna while eating and bolts into the surrounding brush.

This completely plausible scenario is clear evidence that the BlueSYNC RGD has the power to save your life. However, you’ll probably just use it to bring music anywhere you want to go.

4th of July Fun Facts

family celebrating 4th of JulyAs many across the nation work their last day of the week, it may come as a surprise that today should technically be the real day of Independence. July 2, 1776 is the actual day that the Continental Congress voted for Independence. To take it a step further, John Adams even wrote that July 2nd would be remembered and celebrated throughout American History. You are probably pretty upset you had to come in to work on such an important day in American History huh? Well to ease your pain and to get you into the holiday spirit, we’ve provided you with even more fun facts about the 4th of July… Hmm, it almost doesn’t have the same ring to it now.

Fun Fact #1: Thomas Jefferson drafted the Declaration of Independence on a “laptop.” In those times a laptop was considered a writing desk that would sit on the writer’s lap.

Fun Fact #2: There were 200 copies made of the printed version of the Declaration of Independence, which was originally called the Dunlap Broadside. Only 27 copies are accounted for today.

Fun Fact #3: In 1870, as part of a bill to officially recognize other holidays such as Christmas, Congress declared July 4th an official unpaid holiday. In 1939 Congress changed the 4th of July to a paid Federal Holiday. THANK YOU CONGRESS!

Fun Fact #4: The 4th of July is the biggest hot dog day of the year. An estimated 155 million hot dogs and 700 million pounds of chicken are consumed on this day.

Fun Fact #5: To avoid further damage, the Liberty Bell has not been rung since 1846. For symbolic effect, the bell is tapped 13 times on the 4th of July.

Fun Fact #6: In 2012 the U.S. imported $227.3 million worth of fireworks from China. In comparison, the U.S. only exported $11.7 million that same year.

Now that you are caught up on the history of the United States and fireworks sales from 2012, we wanted to wish everyone a safe and happy 4th of July weekend. Know that fireworks can be dangerous and should always be handled responsibly. There are some states **cough cough California** that are desperate for water, so let’s prevent as many fires as possible this summer. Remember, only you can prevent fireworks fires. Happy 4th of July!

2015 NBA Draft #NBADraft

Basketball-draftV2Two months ago we provided you with a NFL Mock Draft of the ever popular GOgroove Groove Pal Speakers. With the majority of those players participating in NFL organized team activities or OTAs, it was slim pickings for tonight’s NBA Draft. We searched the globe looking for the best and brightest the hardtop had to offer. When you’re on top of your game, only the best will suffice! We needed someone who was aggressive on the backboards, had good ball handling skills and range from three point land. We were hard pressed to find anyone better than the GOgroove Pal Bot Speaker. With a 64 inch vertical and handles that would make the Professor blush, there is no doubt the Pal Bot Speaker will be chosen first overall in tonight’s NBA Draft.

The GOgroove Pal Bot not only boasts range from the 3-point line but impressive range of sound. It features two dual drive stereo speakers paired with a passive subwoofer to give you a performance not regularly seen from today’s NBA talent. A long-lasting, rechargeable Lithium polymer battery ensures this speaker will last deep into the 4th quarter. No substitutions required! The compact and portable construction gives it the ability to dribble-drive through the paint and finish with style. The movable arms and glowing LED eyes strike fear into the hearts of any opponent daring enough to try and guard him. We anticipate many teams trying to trade up to draft the Pal Bot, but only one will be lucky enough to land such a hot commodity. Tune in tonight to find out!

Color, Sound, and Other Foreign Concepts.

GG_basspulse_abstractI’ve never been exceptional at math. I was always more focused on artsy stuff like painting or singing or making decorative cheeses. So I went along my way and started putting my talents toward color or music. I would be the person to master sight and sound, eventually becoming the world’s best one-man-band-slash-pointillism-and-or-color-by-numbers-expert (And as such, becoming rightful owner of the known universe). I encountered two immediate problems with this. First off, painting by numbers and any sort of music require at least basic math skills, music requiring that you can count to four multiple times in a row and color-by-numbers literally having “numbers” IN THE NAME. Secondly, I found out that in the “being the world’s best at visuals and audio” category, I was already at a disadvantage.

I found out that there are people in the world who are not only experts of sight and sound, they actually can HEAR colors and SEE sounds. In reality, it is actually quite a bit more complicated (as most things in reality are), but I was devastatingly jealous all the same. The phenomenon is called Synesthesia, which essentially boils down to having extra connections in the brain that cause correlations between senses that would otherwise be separated. One such form of Synesthesia involves associating letters or numbers with inherent color categories, or a specific chord sounding a little too “green” for your taste. The condition is exceptionally rare and is super difficult to test with science because perception varies from person to person (why we have such unanswerable questions such as “Do you and I see the same color red?” And “Does this dress make me look fat?”).

Whether or not you have Synesthesia, you can see color and light in music with the GOgroove BassPULSE Speaker: a powerful Bass speaker with LED colored lights that pulseBassPULSE2MX_RED_Main-V3 with the music you’re listening to. It has a cool geometric design embedded into the clear plastic that catches the light from the LEDs at the bottom of the panel, and the bass sound packs a punch! If the big woofer design isn’t your style, you could also try the BassPULSE 2MX, a smaller desktop speaker that glows along the bottom and gives your office or desk an elegant look while sounding fantastic.

Also in the realm of LED speakers, the SonaVERSE O2I  and SonaVERSE TI speakers from GOgroove both feature beautiful blue accents and powerful sound. But if you really want your see color in your music, go for the GOgroove MOVE L3D portable speaker and mood light. The four color-changing-orb design will have you staring at it for as long as your attention span for pretty colors is (approximately 7.5 hours in most users).

Memorial Day: A Day of Remembrance

   Untitled

As Memorial Day becomes known more as a  day off work rather than a remembrance of our fallen military, we thought it would be in the best interest to give a brief history of the holiday. Memorial Day will be celebrated this coming Monday, May 25th as a National Day of Remembrance for our fallen heroes. How will you spend it? A BBQ with the family and friends seems to be the most common occurrence, but please remember to take a second to remember those who lost their lives fighting for our freedom.

Memorial Day, originally named Decoration Day, was created in 1868 as a way to recognize those soldiers who lost their lives during the Civil War. It was declared that May 30th would be the official date because it was NOT the anniversary of any particular battle. The first state to recognize this holiday was New York in 1873, followed by the rest of the northern states in 1890. The South did not accept the holiday until after World War I when it was officially changed to a holiday honoring those who have fought in any war. Around the year 1915, Moina Michael, in response to a poem, thought of the idea to wear read poppies on Memorial Day. Her contribution to what is called the “National Poppy Movement” is honored with a 3 cent red postage stamp showing her face and a poppy.

The traditional observance of Memorial Day starts with a flag raised to half-staff until noon, and then eventually  fully raised. On the Thursday before Memorial Day, soldiers place small American flags at every grave at Arlington National Cemetery. The area is then patrolled 24/7 to ensure that the flags are flying throughout the weekend. In the year 2000, as a way to remind us of the true meaning of the holiday, a resolution was passed asking that at 3 p.m. local time, Americans give a moment of silence and respect for our fallen heroes.

Happy Memorial Day from GOgroove! Everyone please have a safe weekend and remember to give a moment of silence and thanks for our fallen military.

GOgroove by Accessory Power Proudly Supports ‘Operation Gratitude’

OpGrat_DRK_BLUE.logoOperation Gratitude is a nonprofit organization that “seeks to lift spirits and meet the evolving needs of our Active Duty and Veteran communities, and provide volunteer opportunities for all Americans to express their appreciation to members of our Military.” The organization meets these goals by sending care packages stuffed with food, entertainment and personal letters. Each package costs only $15 to put together and since its start in 2003, Operation Gratitude has shipped over one million of these care packages.

One of the Operation Gratitude campaigns that caught our eye was that of Tom Connolly, and his plans to walk across the United States to raise money and awareness. Tom set out on his journey on April 25th, with the goal of raising $30,000 for the organization. After speaking with Tom we decided to get involved. We not only donated some apparel but also a portable solar panel charger, a USB battery power bank and a pair of our Lifetime Warranty indestructible GOgroove RNF headphones. In addition, we are also donating 0.25 cents per mile that Tom walks. We are doing everything we can to help Tom reach his goal of $30,000 and raise awareness for this amazing organization. If you would like to learn more about his journey or donate to his cause please visit: https://giving.operationgratitude.com/events/tom-connolly-walk-across-america/e47358

 

The Highs and Lows of the Cube

BlueSYNC_BX_SILVER_MAIN_LRGCubes and square-shaped items have been a staple of the human race since the beginning. In Ancient China, the earth was originally believed to be flat and square. Sail a bit too far and you’d fall right off the side. As technology evolved, cubes became more and more dangerous. It all started with the invention of geometry. To this day, those cubes continue to hurt my brain and haunt my dreams. And due to such mathematical equations, the Star Trek Borg Cubes were born, creating a Unicomplex of conduits and transportation hubs.

Now that the idea of cubes scares you silly and makes you believe that ‘resistance is futile,’ lets discuss the sweeter side of cubes and their square-shaped cousins. Some of the more popular edible cube items include sugar cubes and ice cubes. Where would we be as a culture without either of those items? Last and certainly not least, is the cube in the running for the most popular of all: the Rubik’s Cube. The Rubik’s cube continues to be the top-selling puzzle on earth. It was invented in 1974 by Hungarian sculptor and Professor Erno Rubik. It was originally named the ‘Magic Cube’ until it was eventually changed to the Rubik’s Cube in 1980.

Now that you’re feeling a little better about cubes and square shaped objects as a whole, let’s talk about a cube that’s truly magic. Of course that would be the GOgroove BlueSYNC BX. The magic about this cube is that it plays music wirelessly through Bluetooth or NFC, flash drive or 3.5mm aux connection. It’s even equipped with a mini-usb charging port and a rechargeable battery. Believe it or not, this cube gets sweeter than the sugar cubes we spoke of before – it comes in either gunmetal silver or wood grain. This square-shaped speaker pumps out impressive volume and is the perfect party, travel and outdoors accessory. We didn’t create the GOgroove BlueSYNC BX to restore your faith in cubes but hopefully it will put you on the right track.

For a limited time, the BlueSYNC BX will be $10 off and free shipping. Use Coupon Code: SAVEBX at checkout between Monday May 11th and Monday May 18th to receive your discount! For more information on the GOgroove BlueSYNC BX and our entire list of cube shaped items, visit our website at www.gogroove.com.

2015 NFL DRAFT #NFLDraft

palbot-football-draftIt’s finally here! That one day, that acts as a bridge between the Super Bowl and start of the preseason. That one day where dreams are made while others are crushed. The NFL Draft is upon us! #NFLDraft. For those of us who didn’t think we’d make it through the darkness, scared we’d never see another football again; the NFL Draft gives us a 3 day beacon of hope. The countless mock drafts, analysis, arguments and debates come to an end on this day. Starting at 8pm ET, the first pick will be made and we are off for a weekend of selections, ear to ear smiles and even some tears.

Now some of you may be thinking, is the NFL Draft really that big of a deal? The answer is yes. The first round of last year’s 2014 NFL Draft drew a combined total viewership of 32 million viewers across the NFL Network and ESPN channels. Across all 3 days, the coverage averaged 12.4 million viewers! It’s gotten so big that even our world famous GOgroove Groove Pals got in the mix. Participating in their own Mock Draft and in a surprise twist, the Groove Pal Penguin at outside linebacker was drafted first. Tears were shed by the Groove Pal Tiger, but all was forgotten as the star RB was swiftly taken with the 2nd Pick. Rounding out the draft in this order was Panda Pal at 3rd, Owl at 4th, Polar Bear at 5th and last but not least, Koala at 6th.

Of course, everyone is a winner when selecting a speaker from the Groove Pal lineup. Don’t let those cute looks fool you – the ferocious nature and sounds from these speakers will knock your socks off. So on this great day for NFL fans worldwide, enjoy the draft and a little music too with the GOgroove Groove Pal Speakers.
