Brain Bursting All Over My Desktop

Saturday, September 21st, 2013 | Author:

Z1I do enjoy mobile gaming, in fact one could say I feel it’s a very under-tapped market. Hopefully it will be be vastly expanded on as our mobile technology increases. With any luck, we will even start to see more altered reality games some time soon!

That being said, sometimes I want to sit in front of a larger screen and do some desktop gaming. OWC Nick slid this gem my way and said it would be great to review for the blog, so I am. Ready your shotguns, and get all the ammo you can find brother, it’s time for Zombies ate my Friends!

So the game is fairly straight forward, however unlike most zombie games, its more of a point and click adventure with some strategic combat.  All battles are turn based, and you take your time selecting somewhat goofy attacks to smash the heads of your foes in with. The user interface is pretty neat, we got our health, our experience, our energy… ENERGY!? Yeah, its one of those. Run out of energy and you’ll need to wait ’til you get more—or shell out some cash to buy some. Curse you freemium gaming! Oh well, no sense crying over spilled zombie.  The game’s interface is actually surprisingly helpful without being super cluttered. Very often, games will throw mini maps, objective lists, equipment tabs, status bars, buff icons, etc. at you, until you feel you are looking at the game world through an old-timey key hole. Which is about as exciting as watching a Chia Pet grow. Article Continues…

New OWC Jupiter mini-SAS Redefines Shared SAN Storage by Harnessing the Simplicity and Performance of mini-SAS Direct Attached Storage

Monday, January 9th, 2012 | Author:

Other World Computing announced today its new OWC Jupiter mini-SAS scalable storage solution for small businesses and enterprises utilizing mission critical and creative applications. Built upon the proven mini-SAS interface for speeds up to 24Gb/s using just a single cable connection, the Jupiter family of racks, towers, and hubs combine the highest levels of data sharing performance with the simplicity of direct attached storage (DAS) at up to 5x lower cost of fibre channel infrastructures. The OWC Jupiter mini-SAS will be available by the end of March in a variety of configurations with 8TB Enterprise solution pricing starting at $3,995.00. During the Consumer Electronics Show (CES), which begins tomorrow in Las Vegas, Nevada, OWC will demonstrate the high performance of the Jupiter mini-SAS in its booth #5231 in the LVCC North Hall.

Centralized Storage = Higher Productivity

Jupiter mini-SAS is a centralized storage solution, which means data is stored in a single location and can be accessed by multiple workstations simultaneously. Sharing content streamlines workflows, eliminates bottlenecks, and the need to duplicate files. By eliminating the need to copy data to multiple users on DAS solutions or searching for files in multiple locations, Jupiter mini-SAS can dramatically increase productivity. Additionally, Jupiter mini-SAS can be configured to provide zoned/allocated drive access privileges so specific workstations and/or servers have exclusive access to specific drives or sets of drives.
