Remember the time when our TV’s only showed in black and white and the sense of color was only a figment of our imagination? Yeah me neither, I’m too young but I bet it would be weird. In other news, CablesAndKits recently added two brand new lines to our IP phone family and we are super stoked about them. Not like hearing about an 18th Star Wars Rogue One Trailer stoked, but seriously we are geeked out! We are talking full color with Bluetooth, WI-FI capabilities, and USB ports.

CablesAndKits has always had a heart for giving to others. Serving others is at the core of our being, as we positively impact others. We act with an “I’m for you” mentality and perpetually seek ways to assist others.

As we prepare to upgrade our technology internally, a silent auction was held in efforts to raise money to bless Rainbow Village, a local non-profit organization. All of our employees were given the opportunity to place their bid on technology that was being phased out and 100% of the profits were donated.

As technology continues to evolve, we often find ourselves in need to replace some of our outdated IT equipment.  When is the right time to replace? Is it after a set number of years or when the decals begin to fade like an old store receipt that you can barely read.

We get it. You were given a budget at the beginning of the year and you cannot spend a penny over it. How in the world are you going to be able to keep your network up and running with that small budget? Have you considered the value in refurbished equipment?

Access Points bring many advantages to working wireless with high-speed internet. We’ve surveyed our coworkers here at CK and came up with the Top 5 places you definitely wouldn’t work, but you could with the help of an Access Point.

1. Bathroom

A room containing a toilet and sink which is usually a location to relieve yourself. We typically wouldn’t go to a bathroom to work, but you most certainly could. Just think, you could kick back, relax and enjoy a day of work in the comfort of your own bathroom stall.

Here at CK, the holidays are a special time where everyone gets warm and fuzzy feelings and excitement for the huge feasts that are quickly approaching (go ahead and pull those stretchy pants out of your closet). From October until December, there is non-stop excitement around the office. In October, we put on an epic Halloween Costume contest along with a yummy Chili cook-off. These two events have been known to bring the warrior out of people (we are a competitive bunch). November is all about being thankful and figuring out how many clever ways we can repurpose the leftover turkey. In December, we hold an ugly sweater contest, gingerbread house competition and end our festivities with a festive Christmas party which brings all of our families together.

Since we are all anxious to see what Santa brings us, here are the top requested items from the CK family:

With Thanksgiving approaching, we thought this would be a great time to take a step back and recognize what we are thankful for. The CablesAndKits team has accomplished a lot this year, from new hires to welcoming new family additions.

We asked a few of our employees here at CablesAndKits what they were thankful for this year and here is what they had to say:
