iPhone 5 vs Samsung Galaxy S4 Poll Results

blogAlright, the results are in! Our customers have been voting with their clicks all week, telling us whether the iPhone 5 or Samsung Galaxy S4 is their dream-smartphone of the future (or present). Here’s how it ended up:

iPhone 5:     75.4%
Galaxy S4:   24.6%

Obviously iPhone 5 was the reigning champ, and that hasn’t changed much, but the Galaxy S4 taking practically a quarter of the vote is more impressive than expected. It’ll be interesting to see how Apple’s announcement later this month might change opinions.

Well, the voting is over, but the savings are not. We’re keeping the discount pages open over the weekend at least, so head over to www.cablejive.com and choose your device to save 15% on select items now!

iPhone 5 vs Samsung Galaxy S4 Sale

Jun4_2013

Since the release of the S3, Samsung’s Galaxy smartphones have risen to become the only true challenger to the iPhone’s market dominance to-date. And now, with the release of the new Galaxy S4, the question of switching from iOS to Android is bigger and more prevalent than ever before.

Because we’re a curious lot, we want to know what YOU think. So head over to our homepage right now and tell us which device you want to buy next (or currently own, if that’s the case). Simply click on the “iPhone 5” or “Samsung Galaxy S4” side of the main homepage image to make your choice. From there, you’ll be taken to a corresponding section of our website where we have select items for whichever device you chose marked at 15% off!

We’ll announce the results of this little experiment on Friday 6/7, so stay tuned for that if you’re interested. Either way, make your choice known, and save some $ in the process.

FREE iStubz Bundle With Every dockBoss Purchase!

Mar15_2013We’ve been getting into the giving mood here at CableJive, so it might be worth a few seconds of your day every now and then to check for any promotions we’re running. They’re a good way to either save some cash or at least get something extra. Like this one we just started today, for instance:

From now until March 20th we’re giving away a free iStubz Bundle with the purchase of any dockBoss cable from our web-store at www.cablejive.com. The iStubz are the perfect travel-sized sync and charge cable for any 30-pin iDevice, and in the bundle comes not one, but both versions of iStubz (7cm and 22cm lengths)!

We realize if you’re getting the dockBoss because you want to connect non-iDevices to iPod speaker docks there’s a chance you don’t actually own an iDevice yourself. That may be true, but if so, I bet you know someone who does! So at the very least, you get a dockBoss, and you get to give someone else a gift on us. Go ahead, take the credit. They’ll never know it was free. We won’t rat you out. Promise!

samDock: Listen and charge your Samsung phone on your iPod or iPhone dock


Announced at CES 2013, samDock broke ground as the first & only cable dedicated to connecting Samsung Galaxy devices to iPod speaker docks & audio systems. If you’re a Galaxy SIII or Note user, it’s never been easier give your favorite Android device access to the wide world of 30-pin audio docks currently on the market (and getting cheaper by the day!). One simple connection to charge your device and listen to your favorite tunes in stunning quality. Don’t believe us? Check out our samDock video above to see it in action.

samDock Troubleshooting

AudioOutputModeNoteII

Note: “Audio Output Mode” setting not included in Galaxy S5. As a result, unfortunately, the samDock is not compatible with the Galaxy S5. These customers should see our dockBoss5 adapter.

Our new samDock cable opens up a world of options for Samsung Galaxy SIII & Note II owners to connect to a variety of high-quality iPod docks and speaker systems for charging, listening to audio, and syncing data. Never before has such a solution been created specifically for Galaxy devices. In most cases it is a seamless, plug-and-play accessory giving you instant access to your docking system’s features. However, we were just made aware of a very particular setting that may be preventing the samDock from working for some customers  right off the bat. The good news is, there’s a simple solution.

If you connect your Galaxy SIII or Note II to a docking station with the samDock and you are able to get charging but not audio, you’ll want to make sure that you have enabled your device to send audio through it’s micro USB connector. To do this, go into the settings menu, click on the “Accessory” tab, and ensure “Audio output mode” is selected with a check mark (see image). On some devices, that “Accessory” tab may be named “Dock” instead, but the menu you’ll find within is the same, and the solution is just as simple. If you have confirmed that Audio output mode is enabled and you still have trouble getting the samDock to work, please don’t hesitate to contact our service department at www.cablejive.com/service and we’ll be happy to help you further from there.

dockBoss air How-To-Pair Videos

Our dockBoss air has proven to be quite popular since it was launched two weeks back, and we’re truly thankful for the positive response. In an effort to help our customers get connected to their dockBoss airs more quickly and easily, we’ve put together a couple short videos showing you how to pair it with both Apple and Android devices via Bluetooth. You can find both videos on our dockBoss air product page, or view them below. Happy pairing!
