  • Christmas Comes Early to Gtech Thanks to One of the Country's Top Tech Guru's, Techno Claus

    David Pogue selects the AirRam in round up of “Tech Gifts” to place under your tree.

    So we must have been very good this year. As you can imagine, it was quite a holiday treat to find that our AirRam was featured on CBS Sunday Morning's, "Holiday Gift Ideas from Techno Claus" segment for Christmas. For those who know him, this holiday gadget guru is actually David Pogue, one of the most respected technology writers in the country. The former New York Times columnist is now writing for Yahoo and contributes on CBS Sunday Morning.

    Pogue donned a Santa suit and composed a fun-loving ode to the latest and greatest tech treats to put under your tree. He called us powerful, lightweight and flexible. And as a lover of all things tech, our green technology and ability to track usage helped us stand out from the competition like tinsel on a tree.


    "It uses less juice than its rival, nice touch, and hooks to a laptop to show you how much!"
    - David Pogue (aka Techno Claus)

    Take a moment to check out his catchy holiday rhyme as he takes us through the best tech gifts of the season... and be sure not to miss our mention at 2:58. :-)

    A Very Happy Holidays to All and To All a Good Night!

  • Gtech Offers Special Promotion on AirRam Cordless Vacuum Cleaner

    Brookstone shoppers to receive $50 gift card with purchase of a Gtech AirRam cordless vacuum cleaner

    Gtech USA today announced today a special promotion for Brookstone AirRam shoppers. From now to August 10, 2013, customers will receive a gift card worth $50 off any item in Brookstone (stores and online) with the purchase of an AirRam cordless vacuum cleaner.

    "This special promotion is a great opportunity for customers to get their hands on the AirRam they've heard so much buzz about," said Steve Schwartz, Brookstone vice president merchandising and product development. "We really believe this vacuum changes the way you clean and take care of your home. We're excited to offer such a rich promotion to our shoppers and invite them to see a demo at their local Brookstone store."

    The Gtech AirRam is the first cordless, bagless, canister-free vacuum on the market that in third-party tests of cleaning performance, has been shown to outperform a number of cordless vacuums and performs as well as various corded vacuum brands**.

    The cordless vacuum cleaner represents the most significant evolution in vacuum development over the last 20 years, and brings myriad first-time technological and design developments to the category, including:

    • Dirt-to-tray technology: Unlike any other vacuum on the market (cordless, and those with a canister or bag) the AirRam’s direct dirt-to-tray technology compresses dust and debris into bales that can be emptied right into the trash
    • Gtech data bridge program: The AirRam can be connected to a computer via USB to monitor battery life, energy usage, energy cost savings, and the calories burned while using the AirRam.
    • Ultra-low profile: The AirRam has an ultra-low profile that allows for easy cleaning under chairs and tables clean any type of floor (tile, carpet or wood) without attachments or any adjustments and is only 7.7 pounds (less than half the weight of a standard vacuum cleaner)
    • Long run time:  A full charge takes four hours and powers the vacuum for a runtime of up to 40 minutes, allowing consumers to clean an average U.S.  home on a single charge.

    The Gtech AirRam is available for purchase from Brookstone stores and at Brookstone.com and at select Brookstone retailers nationwide.

  • Vacuums in Pop Culture

    Last time we took a spin around the living room with our cordless vacuum cleaner the AirRam, we felt that he was smiling at us. Maybe we took a few spins than needed aroAirRam1und the room, but we think the AirRam is starting to develop his own personality here at Gtech.

    And if the AirRam is developing that pop cultural appeal, we have to wonder: where does the AirRam fit into the greater conversation of vacuums throughout pop culture history? Well, we’re still figuring it out. We’re still getting to know this dapper little guy! In the mean time, here’s a series of other vacuums from pop culture past:

    Famous Vacuums in Pop Culture

    kirby1

     

    Kirby, from “The Brave Little Toaster” (1987)

    He was grumpy, nervy, neurotic, and also endearing. He grew into a hero over the course of the film.

    kirby 2

     

    Kirby, from several Nintendo games

    Not a vacuum, you say? Apparently, you’ve forgotten that Kirby’s signature move was to    suck his opponents up (presumably into tidy bales) and absorb their powers. Also, he was undeniably adorable.

    nono

     

    Noo Noo, the incredibly bizarre vacuum friend of the Teletubbies

    He was their excitable compadre who periodically lost control and vacuumed up all of their possessions. Why? It was the Teletubbies; we have no idea.

     

    vacu2

     

    The people-sucking vacuums in 2010’s “Skyline”

    They took alien abduction to a new level, vacuuming literally thousands of people up at a stretch. But how are they on carpets?

    hocus pocus

     

    The vacuum serving as a witch’s broom in 1993’s “Hocus Pocus”

    Sarah Jessica Parker loses her broom, and a magical vacuum comes to her rescue. See the magic sparks flying out from the bottom? We wouldn’t trust it on our carpet.

     

    darkside

     

    The killer vacuum a child willed into existence on “Hush” from the 80s horror series “Tales from the Darkside”

    Just what it sounds like. It sucked… SOULS!

     

    These are just a couple sentences in a much longer conversation: vacuums across the pop culture encyclopedia. What will the legacy of our AirRam be at the end of the day? Only time will tell, but we’re certain it will be one of the good guy robots, not one of the bad guys. After all, this cordless vacuum cleaner is just way too good looking to be a villain.

  • Celebrate Christmas in July with our Cordless Vacuum Cleaner

    santa1It’s the most wonderful time of year! America is a country that is certainly known for its festivity, and Christmas in July has become a cult phenomenon over the years.

    We love to give and to receive, because new stuff is always fun, isn’t it? This Christmas in July, why not make a gift of the ultimate cordless vacuum cleaner, and share the joys of a Gtech AirRam? There are, after all, many, many messes to be made in the summertime.

    The kids may be back from school, the beach sand may follow your feet inside, and you’ll probably host a party or two. Christmas in July extends beyond the gift of giving, however, it’s a miniature culture. Have a party, bust out that Santa Claus suit and make those red pants into cutoffs!

    Here’s our salute to the beloved pretend-real holiday, Christmas in July.

    santa2Christmas in July has multiple source points in history. The first documented use of the phrase was from Camp Keystone, an all-girls sleep-away camp in 1933, and the festivities included an actual tree, presents, and visit from Santa Claus, himself.

    In 1942, the Calvary Baptist Church in D.C. found a humanitarian niche with Christmas in July, rounding up gifts to be eventually distributed among various missions worldwide, to the underprivileged. The U.S. Post Office teamed up with military official to launch their own Christmas in July in 1944; it was designed to set up early gift mailing to men and women overseas. Unfortunately for them, our cordless vacuum cleaner wasn’t invented just yet.

    This Christmas in July, have a real celebration. Give the holiday more than just a name; live it! We recommend going all out, because if you’re going to do something, it’s worth doing right. Exchange gifts, have Santa pay a visit, decorate accordingly, and really try to feel it.

    The reason: why not? There’s an indescribable something to Christmas, and who says you can’t reach that feeling in July? Best of luck, and Merry Christmas in July!

  • The Evolution of Vacuuming: From Retro Colors to Cordless Technology

    At Gtech, we recognize that you don’t arrive at the zenith of a process without an appreciation of its roots.

    Creativity is the art of dissembling established concepts and rebuilding from their dismantled parts. Like a phoenix from the ashes, the AirRam cordless vacuum cleaner has flown high, to the top of the game.

    We’ve put together a retrospective of the many masks vacuuming has worn over the years. As a reference, and inspired by Judson Laipply of “Evolution of Dance” fame, we’ve included images of the dances that pin the appliances to their corners in time.

    Before we begin, just try not to be entertained by this talented man:

     [hana-code-insert name='evodance1' /]

    Screen Shot 2013-06-27 at 3.49.28 PM

    1960's

    The Dance: The Twist!

    The Vacuum: With its bubbly appearance, the 1960s imagines an interesting future.

     

    Screen Shot 2013-06-27 at 3.50.56 PM1970's

    The Dance: The Hustle! Disco is in full swing.

    The Vacuum: Leaving the era of pseudo-futuristic conformity, we enter the awkward boxy phase.

     

    Screen Shot 2013-06-27 at 3.51.46 PM1980's

    The Dance: The running man! What were we running from?

    The Vacuum: Looks suspiciously like something from Star Wars. It’s one piece, not two, and the colors are atrocious.

    Screen Shot 2013-06-27 at 3.52.23 PM1990's

    The Dance: It’s Hammertime! Or it was.

    The Vacuum: Central vacuum cleaners gained popularity, where the actual vacuum was a semi-permanent fixture. People were settling in with their vacuums.

     

    Screen Shot 2013-06-27 at 3.54.32 PM2000's

    The Dance: The Dougie, as in teach me how to.

    The Vacuum: Some innovative styles emerge, like the bagless cylinder vacuum.

     

    AirRam

     

    2010's

    The Dance: The decade is young, and the dance is your palate to paint with. Invent something we’ve never seen!

    The Vacuum: The AirRam has arrived, and the evolution is complete.

    You can see the evolution of the vacuum has been an interesting one. Our past visions of the future diverged from where the future has actually taken us, but isn’t life always surprising that way? There’d be no story to tell if everything unfolded the way we’d planned it.

    What matters is that we’ve arrived, at long last. Next time you use your Gtech AirRam upright vacuum cleaner, think about the journey vacuuming has taken, and give it a little hug. When you fire it up, think of a dance that could define a generation, and go to work.

    What’s your move? Show us the dance move you’ve created that will change dance the way the AirRam has changed vacuuming on Facebook and Twitter. Keep up with our blog for more updates!
