Want to speed up your Mac and get rid of that spinning “beach ball”? Defragging your Mac hard drive with Drive Genius 3’s award-winning defrag tool is your best option to improve your hard disk drive’s speed and performance. Hey, who doesn’t want a faster Mac?
What does defragging a hard drive actually mean?
Your Mac has millions of files on its HDD. As the hard drive is used, the Mac starts to run out of space to put very large files. When that happens, your Mac fragments large files, places bits of the file in one location and other bits of it in other location. The more time that goes by, the more you’re going to have fragments of files all over your hard drive. This is a problem because opening and using files slows way down when your files are fragmented. The reason is because your Mac has to open the file and piece the various pieces together as it’s opening. This is one reason you may see the beach ball more often than you used to (it’s a sign of having a fragmented HDD). Article Continues…
’Tis the season of giving. But not just giving gifts to loved ones. As we’re reminded on this #GivingTuesday, it’s also about giving to the less fortunate.
Leaders blaze trails and often inspire others with their actions. The great thing about the holidays is that there is no shortage of people stepping up to help those in need. There are so many tales of giving at this time of year that inspire both the givers and receivers. And the great thing about giving is that there are many things we can do that don’t cost a cent such as volunteering or even donating our household items or clothing that we aren’t using.
Other World Computing is participating in this season of giving as well. Two tall and deep boxes stand outside our human resources office to collect items for the Toys for Tots campaign. The U.S. Marine Corps Reserve’s mission, which they choose to accept: collect new, unwrapped toys from October to December each year, and distribute those toys as Christmas gifts to less fortunate children in the community in which the campaign is conducted.
Last week we kicked off our Black Friday/Holiday Specials by highlighting some of our great deals. But we’re not finished yet!

The chaos of Black Friday seems to happen earlier and earlier every year. In fact, the mayhem starts so early, they should probably rename it Black Thursday-Friday.
But no matter how early you get in line for those time-release specials, there’s a chance that the supply is exhausted before the line is. And if you do get lucky and get what you want, your reward is another line just to check out. It’s quite a contrast to the calm and ease of doing your shopping online.
