It's Halloween!

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
Ever wonder where the idea of Halloween originated from? Basically, Celtic Tribes in Ireland believed that the spirits of the dead were allowed to come back to earth once a year on October 31st. The Celtic New Year began on November 1st and the belief was that, on the night before the border between the world of the living and that of the dead became blurred. The spirits of the dead would then be able to cross over for this one night into the world of the living.People were afraid of what the spirits may do to them, so they started to dress up to disguise themselves. They would roam the streets in these disguises trying to fool the spirits into believing that they weren't living beings. Pretty neat right?

Anyway, Team USB is in full Halloween Spirit ....

as we all discuss our favorite horror movies, while researching gory, gross appetizer and drink recipes (all while stuffing our faces with candy....can't deny my love for Candy Corns!). Here are some of our favorite Halloween Horror Movies...

1. Alfred Hitchcock's "Psycho" (1960) - Total Classic and MUST WATCH on Halloween
2. John Carpenters "Halloween" (1978) - Michael Meyers always comes out on Halloween
3. George Romero's "Night of the Living Dead" (1968)
4. "The Exorcist" - May not necessarily be a Halloween movie but it will scare you nonetheless
5. Robert Wise's "The Haunting" (1963) Trust us it is Wayyyy Better than the remake!

My night if officially planned with recipes and movies all right here on my reliable flash drive....HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!


Backing Up Your Documents!

computer_crash-480x280.jpgIt has happened to most of us, and today it happened to me. My server completely crashed! With all my information on it, all my folders! Thankfully, I back up all important work documents, pictures, videos, and music. Although I was thoroughly annoyed with my computer this morning, I am super thankful for my 16G USB Flash Drive! I don't know how I ever lived without it...

Word of advice, ALWAYS back up your files! I recommend choosing 2 types of backup. I personally use my Flash Drive as well as iWork.com which publishes your information to a modern browser. I utilize my flash drive as well as iWork because if I (for whatever reason) do not have access to the internet, I can still access my important information.

The Multi-Functional Pen

Company Professionals are always losing and misplacing their small USB Drives. Betweem various meetings, piles of papers, and large briefcases, most go through a few drives a year. Taking this into consideration, we found a product that will better suit their needs in terms of flash drive technology... therefore, we would like to introduce the NEW Signature and Laser Executive Pen models!
