There is very good news coming out of the solar energy sector. Thanks to environmentally conscious companies like OWC, almost a third of new U.S. electricity came from solar power last year. Tech media company GigaOM reports that environmentalists long held dream of increased dependence on solar power took a huge step forward in 2013.
According to GigaOM: “Solar power crashed its way onto the U.S. power grid last year and is now fundamentally changing the makeup of how energy is being produced and consumed. Essentially, it’s becoming a mainstream power source: According to a new report from the Solar Energy Industries Association and GTM Research, solar power had another record year in 2013, with 4.75 gigawatts of solar energy systems installed, including 2 gigawatts in just the fourth quarter alone.

As we’ve showed you in the past, there are plenty of ways to break your iPhone. Admittedly, some ways are more common than others (most people tend to text while walking slightly more than they breakdance).
So how exactly are people breaking their iPhones? SquareTrade released some statistics on how the devices have been meeting their premature demise over the years. They’ve confirmed our rampant walking-and-texting habit by finding the No. 1 reason to be the iPhone “fell out of my hand”. (We have yet to confirm where “fell out of my wind turbine” ranks.) And 24 percent of owners either had their iPhone fall from their lap or knocked from the table. This is a significant portion of accidents, but these kinds of things just happen.
A separate study by mobileinsurance.co.uk illustrates the top reasons why these broken iPhone screens are often left unfixed:
“You Don’t Know Jack!” Actually that’s a lie, more likely than not, you know quite a bit. But all that becomes rather relative in Jellyvision’s/Jackbox Games’ multiplayer trivia game.
YDKJ for the iPad is the next game in a very long line of games that have been living on the consoles of my generation for a long time. To see a free version of YDKJ for the iPad is amazing. So get ready to be slapped around with some sarcasm, because well… You Don’t Know Jack!
What can I say? I love tongue-in-cheek humor and sarcasm. And Cookie, the game’s host, is never shy about dishing out shovels of it at you. Every answer in the game, right or wrong, has a snarky response that will have you laughing. Article Continues…
If you love Macs, it’s almost impossible to look at the 2013 Mac Pro without dropping your jaw, drooling a little, and thinking, “Want. Want so badly.” And that’s understandable. It’s a powerful machine with a sleek new design that’s perfect for professionals across the creative spectrum.
But the thing is, it’s not like creative professionals just started using Mac Pros in 2013. And if you dropped top dollar on a Mac Pro anytime in the past few years, the idea of investing several thousand more dollars in the latest model might not seem that attractive to you. On the other hand, nobody wants to be left behind. It’s competitive enough out there on a level playing field.
That’s where OWC comes in. If you make your living in graphic design, video editing, or any other visual medium, you’re going to want to keep reading. We’ll show you how you can bring your 2009-2012 Mac Pro up to par with many GPU based tasks without breaking the bank.
OWC’s benchmark testing has revealed that a 2009-2012 Mac Pro can be upgraded to perform on par with the 2013 Mac Pro in many GPU based tasks and in some cases, even outperform it. Lets take a look at some of the options OWC has to help make your older Mac Pro the powerful machine you need to express your creativity. Article Continues…
