Win a Power2U AC/USB Wall Outlet

Tuesday, November 20th, 2012 | Author:

Everybody loves the Newer Technology Power2U AC/USB Wall Outlet.

Ever since it was introduced last year, the Power2U has won a number of awards and seals of approval. From home-improvement sites to tech blogs and everywhere in between, this clever marriage of a standard two-outlet wall socket and a 2-port USB charger into one UL-listed package is revered as being unbelievably useful and easy-to-install – something you’re sure to want in your own homes.

This just may be your lucky day, as MommyBlogExpert is holding a giveaway contest for a Power2U of your very own.

There are a number of ways to enter, but before you do, you need to leave a message on the main contest page. Once you’ve done that, you can earn yourself extra entries by liking, following or subscribing to a number of different MommyBlogExpert and/or Newer Technology social portals. See the contest page for full details.

Even if you don’t win, you can still get a Power2U from OWC. At prices starting at $12 after OWC instant rebate (compared to the regular price of $24.99), you can get one for all your rooms that could use a reduction in cable clutter.

But it wouldn’t hurt to try for a free one, either.

SoundBunny Makes Your Audio Options Multiply Like Rabbits

Friday, September 21st, 2012 | Author:

Last week, we announced a promotion where we’re offering a copy of Prosoft Engineering’s SoundBunny audio control software free with any order over $100, or for 99¢ with any other item on the same order. That’s great and everything (because, hey, free/inexpensive software) but you’ll probably want to know a little more about the software and how you may want to use it before installing it.

SoundBunny allows you to set the individual volume levels for each application you have open, independent of the others. To give a more “analog” description, it acts kind of like an audio mixing board, with each application you have open on a separate channel. You can then set the sound level higher on some, lower on others, and/or mute others completely until it’s just they way you like it.

It’s a simple premise, really, and one that’s been implemented in the past, though those were pretty much all  for PowerPC machines and/or have been discontinued. SoundBunny, though was written for current OS X versions and Intel processors, so it’ll run on more modern hardware and software. Article Continues…

OWC Unveils Free SoundBunny Volume Control Application Promotion

Friday, September 14th, 2012 | Author:

Other World Computing announced today that it will be including Prosoft Engineering’s SoundBunny volume control application — a $9.99 value — for free with purchases of $100 or more from OWC. Additionally, this first-of-its-kind program for the Mac is specially priced at $0.99 when purchased with any other item from OWC on the same order. Both promotional offers are while supplies last.

Controls Each Application’s Volume Independently

SoundBunny is a simple, yet powerful Mac volume control application that provides the ability to control the volume level for all open applications in one, easy-to-use interface. Set the volume high for a movie or game you’re playing, while setting the volume low or even muted for Mail alerts or notifications. Since the program discovers all of the sound-enhanced applications that are running, you can also control any others that need to be turned down or muted. Gone forever is the hassle of having to change your Mac’s master volume setting for each app change.

Besides offering the highest performance and quality in products, we’re well-known for offering added value services, support, and special offers like this,” said Larry O’Connor, Founder and CEO, Other World Computing. “SoundBunny is just one of those neat little programs you can’t do without and we’re very pleased to be able to offer it to the Mac community for free or at a significant savings from retail.
