Wednesday, December 19th, 2012 | Author:

As we recently outlined on our Blog, it’s not too late to order great gifts from OWC and get them under your Christmas tree by Monday, Dec. 24. In fact, 2nd day air delivery still makes the cut for orders placed as late as Thursday. And if you order an in-stock item by Friday or even early enough Saturday with overnight shipping, you still can get your order by Christmas Eve. As always, ordering earlier is still better to protect against unforeseen weather or carrier issues.

What tech was under your tree?

Tuesday, December 28th, 2010 | Author:

Well, the Holiday gift-giving rush is finally over, and we’re betting that somewhere between the toad skin coin purse and your menagerie of Chia Pets, there was a nifty tech gadget or two under your tree. Or, maybe you bought yourself a little treat as a reward for making it through the holidays and keeping most of your sanity intact.

Whatever the case, it’s a pretty good guess you gave or received some nifty new gear within the last few weeks. I sure know we did…

What about you guys? What kind of cool gadgets did you acquire or give over the holiday season? Let us know in the comments below.

What a Mac-loving Son gets his Mac-loving Dad

Wednesday, June 2nd, 2010 | Author:

A frequent topic of my articles in the OWC Blog center around my adventures in keeping my dad’s Mac mini up and running. As we’re in the Father’s Day season, I think it’s only appropriate that I put together a list of items that would enhance his digital lifestyle. Perhaps your father might appreciate one or more of these items, as well. Of course, I don’t make nearly enough to get him everything here (we have to keep our prices low somehow), but at least it’s a good launch point for ideas, for both my Dad and maybe  yours, too.

First of all, I’d have to get him a new Mac mini. While his current mini has served him well, its Core Solo processor is showing its age, especially when he’s trying to make discs and slide shows out of photos he’s taken with his digital camera. However, that’s the only processor-intensive thing he does; otherwise he uses it mostly for email, word processing and the occasional game of Bejeweled Blitz. For those purposes, the latest mini would work just fine for him. Of course, like any good son, I’d have to make sure that the computer is all tricked out, so that he can take full advantage of its capabilities. The best place to start is memory.

It’s well-known that getting memory from Apple is way too expensive in most, if not all, cases. Furthermore, not all configurations are available; from Apple, the most you can get pre-installed in the latest mini is 4.0GB. Fortunately, you can double that to 8.0GB through OWC. Plus, it’s even more economical when you consider our rebate for the original memory!
