So, we didn't update the blog for almost a year....! Our apologies, our old site at BOI AudioWorks is attracting quite a bit of traffic still, so we have been quite busy serving both.
Now with that out of the way, we thought we'd share our reflection of our first year.
TFA is 1 year old
We'd like to take this opportunity to thank all those who ordered from us, we hope you are enjoying the glow and sonic warmth of your tube gear.
Those of you who reached out to us, you know how we enjoy hearing from fellow tube gear users.
Mobile is Awesome
This site has been doing quite well. It is serving traffic from all over the world, and has stayed up for months at a time with no unplanned downtime.
As we continue to make improvements to cater to users who visit this online store, there is one thing we noticed. There is a definite continuing shift to mobile devices.
It's fascinating to think that we are using a handheld device to browse and purchase vacuum tubes of all things...!
This is amazingly futuristic, modern and retro at the same time.
When we started selling vacuum tubes online back in 2003, we never would have imagined our customers would be reading our sites and purchasing vacuum tubes using phones and tablets. We have come a long, long way.
On the other hand, as technology keeps changing, here we are using that very technology to more easily access things that enriches our lives.
Things like vacuum tubes that have provided the same enjoyment to us all since decades ago.
And we think that's about the most fabulous thing.
