Just because the busy 2013 edition of the International CES is in our rear-view mirror doesn’t mean it’s time to rest for Team OWC. After introducing a bevy of new products at the expo last week in Las Vegas, we’ve already begun preparation for Macworld | iWorld expo!
The expo will run from January 31 to February 2 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, and Other World Computing will be there in Booth 401 showing off all the new products that we announced at CES, and much more. If you plan on attending, free expo passes are still available so you can get a up close and personal look at our new items such as:
• Power2U 20 Amp model (Plus, if your phone or USB device is running low on power, you can charge up while you chat!)
All these will be on display along with many existing storage and accessory products from OWC and Newer Technology. And we’ll also be showing our video of a NuGuard KX-protected iPhone surviving an extreme drop from our on-site wind turbine.
So stop by and see all the new tech goodies while talking all things Mac with our expert tech team!
As 2012 came to a close, Other World Computing’s fundraising campaign with charity: water also saw its conclusion. And since our last blog update, the campaign received an impressive $17,070 in additional donations, which was matched by OWC, bringing the total to $79,774 raised! These donations helped OWC raise more funds for charity: water than any other campaign during Q4 or the holiday season!
Beginning November 1 in conjunction with OWC’s “25th Year Kickoff Celebration” sweepstakes, the fundraising campaign was created to help people without access to clean water. OWC donated $1 for each entrant of the sweepstakes, new newsletter subscribers, and up to $5 for each Twitter follower it had or gained during the campaign. OWC also matched donations that were made directly to the campaign. Article Continues…
Cases are the best way to protect your iDevice from wear and tear while also making a fashion statement. With several priced at under $1.00, there are some real steals here for earlier-model iPod, iPhone, and iPad cases…but only while supplies last.
So while these deals will be available until each items sells out, you’ll want to act fast for the best selection.
Do you have a 2010 Mac mini, 13” MacBook or 13” MacBook Pro? Can you benefit from more than 8GB of memory? If you answered yes to both, you will be pleased to know that extensive qualification in our test lab has concluded. These Macs are now OWC MaxRAM Certified for up to 16GB with this OWC 16GB Memory Kit available now and specifically qualified just for these Mac models.
While these systems were originally factory limited to 8GB, the right Apple OS version, current EFI update(s), and correct spec/build memory modules now enable them to support and have the full benefit from up to 16GB of installed memory. This isn’t the first time something like this happened, however, after the fact enabling such a benefit. A while back, we had a similar instance with the Late 2008 MacBook Pros, wherein having the proper OS version and a particular firmware update allowed you to max your RAM out at 8GB vs. a prior 4GB to 6GB max.
Just like with those Late 2008 MBP models, your Mac needs to meet specific criteria for this to work. In the case of the 2010 Macs, here’s what you must have: Article Continues…
