Place orders early if you want anything from Taiwan or China as Chinese New Year comes early this year

Place Order Soon - CNY

Chinese New Year is a major holiday around the world, but especially in China and Taiwan, which both shut down production in factories for prolonged periods so that workers can spend this time with their family. Normally, we’re accustomed to the Chinese New Year taking place in February, but this year, it starts on January 22, 2023. That means if you want anything to start production and/or ship from China and Taiwan before the New Year, you need to have your orders in by the 1st week of January at the latest.

Vinpower is happy to help anyone that needs to place an order for storage related products and is pressed against the deadline. Contact us today to make sure your product isn’t delayed due to the rapidly approaching Chinese New Year holiday.

Vinpower will be exhibiting at CES in Las Vegas, NV Jan. 5 – 8, 2023 in the Central Hall, booth # 15593. Look forward to visiting with anyone that plans to attend.

The iXflash allows you to watch movies or listen to music when streaming is not available

iXflash watch listen anywhere

Ownership of content doesn’t have the same necessity as it did in the past. Now with so many streaming sites for programing, both video and audio, so readily available, why buy the latest album or movie when you can seemingly stream it at a whim? That’s fine, but what happens when you’re in a place where you don’t have access to the internet, which means you don’t have access to those streaming platforms? What are you supposed to do then? How will you entertain yourself? Play cards, read a book (wait no one carries books either), or say not so, engage and talk to the other people you’re with? You could download all that programming onto your iPhone or iPad before you set off on this adventure, but then you’d have no space for all your podcasts and plethora of Apps filling up your memory capacity.

Well, the iXflash allows you to prevent having a meltdown and offers and easy to use alternative to having to go without. Simply load that content onto your iXflash, thus not using your iPhone or iPad’s memory and listen or watch your content anywhere, anytime, with ease!

The below YouTube link will show you how easy it is to stay connected to your content, even when you’re unable to connect to the internet:

Best to keep copies of your favorite holiday movies on optical discs, as they are not always available when you want to watch them.

Holiday Movie backup

I railed about this topic last year and found this year it’s not only appropriate, but even more relevant to refresh everyone’s memory of the importance of owning the actual movies or programs that you enjoy watching frequently or at least seasonally. As I stated before, one tradition we have at our house in December is to watch the animated and stop motion Claymation movies from the 70’s. Movies like A Charlie Brown Christmas, the Christmas Claymation movies from Arthur Rankin, Jr. and Jules Bass, like “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer”, “Santa Claus is Comin’ to Town”, “Jack Frost”, plus so many other popular holiday classics. Previously, these movies were run frequently on regular broadcast over the air TV or “Free TV” throughout the month. However recently, a number of the pay streaming services started acquiring these classics and broadcasting them exclusively for their paid content audience. For instance, Apple TV acquired A Charlie Brown Christmas and now it cannot be shown anywhere except through Apple TV. That means if you don’t subscribe to Apple TV, because it’s too expensive, not enough programming to justify the cost, or you simply have 12 other video streaming platforms you already subscribe to and can’t justify adding another, then you can’t watch this animated holiday classic. This year, it was even worse. We wanted to watch the classic Miser Bros. production of “The Year Without a Santa Claus”, and it was only available as a paid rental through Amazon, which means you have to still pay extra to watch this movie even if you have Amazon Prime.

That’s why, Instead of being at the mercy of the video streaming services, get the classics you enjoy on DVD or Blu-ray so that you can watch them whenever and wherever you want. That’s why keeping and acquiring movies and even music on optical discs is still worthwhile, because you never can tell when something you want to watch or listen to will actually be available on the streaming services you subscribe to when you want them.

Reminder, Vinpower will be exhibiting at CES in Las Vegas, NV January 5th-8th, 2023 in Central Hall, Booth # 15593. If you’re attending, we hope you visit with us.

The London Science Museum offers an exhibit on how CD’s work, it’s a great lesson for all

How a CD works

One of my colleagues took a trip with his family to England recently. Being an engineer and a good father, he wanted the trip to be both fun and educational, so he went to the London Science Museum with his family. While there, he discovered a lovely exhibit that discussed the inner workings on how a CD works. We may feel like CD technology is old and outdated, but it’s still a modern miracle of science on how a laser is used to read such minute Pits and Lands to hear music, read files, or watch videos. In fact, the below short video highlights just how simple the concept is, but how incredible it is to create.
