The NuGuard KX is no stranger to awards. It’s won a Gold Stevie for “New Product or Service of the year”, was named a winner in the “Beatweek Best of Show” at the 2013 CES, and no matter where it goes, it gets compliments on its movie star good looks. What can we say – it’s what happens when you live the extreme life of a KX. So it came as no surprise that the KX was invited to attend a pre-show event for the American Music Awards!
On Saturday, Nov. 23, OWC Larry and a few other members of Team OWC flew out for a quick trip to Los Angeles to participate in a celebrity gifting suite hosted at Club Nokia. Singers, actors, and TV stars were among the guests in attendance. Each star had an escort to take them around the booths to receive their assortment of free goodies. OWC was there to share our fabulous line of KX products.
We gifted the guests with KX cases for the iPhone 5/5S and 4/4S, iPad mini/with Retina display, and the newest edition for the iPad Air. And while we were there, we of course displayed some of our most popular OWC products and got a lot of people excited about upgrading their Macs as well!
The holidays are creeping ever closer, and we at OWC hope that everyone is ready for a safe, wonderful Thanksgiving! And while spending time with family and friends is a popular Thanksgiving tradition for most, there’s another tradition that many others like to partake in – waiting in long lines for Black Friday deals.
But there’s a much easier way to still get your shopping done early and get your packages in time without leaving the comfort of your home for the discomfort of a cold, hard sidewalk. By shopping online, you can avoid the craziness of maniacal Black Friday shoppers and if you start early enough, just about every retailer offers free or extremely discounted shipping options this time of year.
The emphasis is on starting early – but during the chaos of the holidays, who among us can truthfully say we’re batting 1.000 on that? With so much on our plates (other than turkey), it’s hard to make time to get ahead on shopping.

DrivePulse is a convenient tool within the award-winning Drive Genius 3 software that monitors the overall health of your Mac hard drives by alerting you to possible issues before they become major problems. Mac OS X does not include any utility to do this, so DrivePulse is a valuable tool to protect and monitor the health of your hard drives.
DrivePulse monitors the health of your internal or external hard drives daily when your computer is idle for five minutes to check for errors, fragmentation, or bad blocks.
After installing Drive Genius 3, you just need to enable the DrivePulse feature. From there you will see the DrivePulse icon (the rectangle highlighted below) now located in the top right section of your toolbar. Article Continues…
