As October’s end nears, so does the end of our #25YearsofOWC Quiz at our official Facebook page in celebration of OWC’s 25th anniversary. We’ve had a great response from our Facebook fans all month long, but we’re not done just yet. We still have quiz questions to be answered and great prizes left!
Here are the questions from Week 4 of our #25YearsofOWC Quiz:
17. What cost more – a Radio Shack cellular phone in 1988 or an iPhone 5S today?
Answer: 25 years ago you would have spent $1,599 (equivalent of $3,158 in 2013) on a Radio Shack CT-300 Cellular phone. At the time it was a breakthrough in price and technology. Today, the world is at your fingertips with the iPhone 5s for as little as $649 with no contract.
18. Would you have spent more on an entire trip to the movies (ticket, medium popcorn, medium drink & candy) in 1988 or on a movie ticket alone today?

We’ve now eclipsed the halfway mark of our #25YearsofOWC Quiz at our official Facebook page in celebration of OWC’s 25th anniversary! Don’t worry though, we still have lots of questions and great prizes on the way.
So far, our fans have flexed their pop culture, sports and tech knowledge from 1988, and a lucky few have earned great prizes from OWC. But we’re ready to keep the fun going and make even more of our fans winners!
Here are the questions from Week 3 of our #25YearsofOWC Quiz:
11. What celebrity appeared in a 1988 Bubble Yum commercial?
We’ve never made it a secret that OWC SSDs will take your Mac’s performance to new heights. But many users think that a shiny new Mac or PC is needed to pair with that supercharged SSD in order to get great performance from your machine.
But as the folks over at Mac Performance Guide pointed out in a recent post, older machines can still get a ton of mileage – at high speeds – simply by dropping in an SSD!
The author of the article outlines his installation of a new NewerTech battery and an old SSD in to an aging white plastic-model MacBook. By simply putting in the new battery and SSD, the machine has a new lease on life. The poster even recommends an OWC SSD as the “go to” candidate for anyone in a similar situation!
