Thor Schrock was a guest on KMTV Channel 3’s morning show, the Morning Blend to talk about Schrock Innovations 2011 Ultimate Upgrade Sale.
The best part was when he spooked Mike DiGiacomo by just knowing he had a Commodore VIC-20 in his basement that he could trade in if he wanted to.
Take a look at the video. The sale is going on at Schrock Innovations through May 7, 2011.

While many people think about surge damage during severe weather season, the truth is that surges do not have a season – they attack your equipment all year-round and you need to have surge protectors to keep your valuable electronics safe.
Today I was a guest on KMTV’s Morning Blend show where we discussed real examples of surge damage that Schrock Innovations has repaired in their Service Centers and how you can keep your equipment safe.

Take a Moment to Check Your Surge Protector
In Nebraska the average surge protector needs to be replaced once each year.
The trouble is that you can’t really tell if your surge protector is working for you or if it is worn out and working like a glorified extension cord.
Over time, a surge protector sacrifices its self to block surges. Once the surge protector has taken all of the damage it can handle, surges pass right through it as if it wasn’t even there.
Even if your surge protector has a “protected” light, it may simple be an LED that stays lit regardless of your surge protectors remaining capabilities.
What is an Audible Alert Surge Protector?
Audible Alert surge protectors (only available at Schrock Innovations) take the guess work out of protecting your valuable equipment.
When an Audible Alert surge protector can no longer protect your computer, flat screen TV, or other electronic device it begins chirping like a cricket.
You will know EXACTLY when it is time to buy a new surge protector because it will tell you.
Because you know with certainty when to replace your surge protector, you can use it for a longer period of time saving your money while you keep your equipment safe.
What Features Does the Audible Alert Surge Protector Have?
Aside from the Audible Alert warning technology, this surge protector has some other great features that set it apart from most older models:
* 10′ Shielded cord gives you the length you need
* Right Angle plug lies flat against the wall, allowing you to push furniture all the way back to the wall
* 1040 joules of protection ensure a long life
* 5 regular outlets and three spaced outlets to handle all of the devices you use
* Automatic grounding detection warns you if your outlet is not properly grounded
How Can I Tell if My Surge Protector is Worn Out?
If you don’t remember the last time you purchased a surge protector it is time replace it. Surge protectors cannot heal themselves.
Look for these tell-tale signs of a warn out surge protector when you examine yours:
* Dim, flickering or extinguished power light in switch
* No protected light whatsoever
* Metal bodies or components indicate the unit is over 25 years old
* Thick, heavy dust is a great indicator of “time in service”
