Whenever the wind blows here at Other World Computing headquarters in Woodstock, Ill., we are reminded of our commitment to the environment in the form of our Vestas V39-500 kW wind turbine.
Now on windy days, we will also have a reminder of our commitment to our customers with our spiffy new “OWC 25 Years” flag. The flag was raised in honor of our 25th year of providing award-winning products, service, and support to the Apple community and tech industry.
Earlier this month, we kicked off our 25th year with a giveaway sweepstakes and fundraising campaign with charity: water with great success so far. And the flag is just another way we want to share this special milestone and serve as a reminder of our commitment to the “OWC Difference” in years past and for many years to come!
The 2012 Election season may be over and done with, but you’ve still got one more vote to cast. Every year, OWC enters the “Meet Me At CES” video contest, wherein exhibitors submit fun and creative videos to entice attendees to visit their booth, the public votes on the best ones, and a winner is featured on the main CES website.
Voting is quite simple. Just go to the contest Web site, find the OWC video from the list of entries (they seem to be alphabetical right now, but they have been randomized in the past, so make sure you find us), watch the video, and click on the Vote button.
Of course, there are a number of rules you should be aware of.
- You have to be registered to the contest Web site in order to cast a vote. (You don’t need to have a video submitted, just a registration.)
- Voting will start at 12:00:01 AM EST on November 9, 2012 and end at 11:59:59 PM EST on November 30, 2012.
- Unlike last year, there is a limit of one (1) vote per valid registration, per video, per day.
We’ve always counted on our loyal fan base to support us in these sorts of contests in the past, and you always come through for us. So get out there and Vote OWC! Article Continues…
On the off-chance that you haven’t seen it yet, head over to Google’s main page. To celebrate Star Trek’s 46th Anniversary, today’s Google Doodle is not only a cartoon of the original series cast in Google letter form, clicking highlighted areas will take you on a little mission (a tribute to Season 1, Episode 18: “Arena”).
While most Google Doodles are creative and entertaining, some go above and beyond the norm. This one, though—with our well-known affinity for Star Trek and pretty much all things space-related—truly captivated many around the office.
