Alright, I’m pretty sure you’ve all figured out from my previous article that I am a die hard League of Legends player and take the game very seriously (not that DOTA2 garbage. Ick no, bury that under 12 layers of steel at the bottom of the ocean please).
That being said, I am indeed a fan of the MOBA genre in general and to my glorious surprise, there is a decent MOBA for the iPad (and iPhone).
Solstice Arena brands itself as the worlds first “SPEED MOBA”, a game that goes by much quicker than desktop games in the genre.
Which is quite true. It’s smaller maps and faster exchanges expedite the game play quite a bit. The fact that players are mobile may help too, as I’m seeing way too many people dive for objectives and get their faces wrecked. Article Continues…
We just wanted to post a quick update on our solar panel installation project at our OWC Austin facility.
The panels are currently being installed and are expected to supply no less than 32 percent of the building’s annual power consumption. Of course, this is just one more step in OWC’s ongoing environmental efforts. The project is estimated to be completed and fully operational in 1-2 weeks.
Oh, and we apologize if the sunny skies in these photos serve as a stark reminder of cold, gray winter skies in your area…
Check out below for a few more photos from the project. Article Continues…
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! We’ve still got a ton of items available for Cyber Monday – and best of all, there are no lines! Finish up (or get started on) your holiday shopping, and let us do the work!
Here are some of the other deals that are available right now:
