Father’s Day is tough. Gift ideas are not easy to come by … and let’s face it, dad isn’t much help. So this year we’ve decided to go all out for dad’s big day. In this series leading up to June 16, we’ll give great gift ideas for all types of dads.
He travels for business. He travels for vacation. He travels with the family to Walley World Disney World (Clark Griswold would agree, this doesn’t count as vacation for most dads).
Whatever his reasons, the on-the-go dad is always on the move. And if he’s often away from home, odds are that he’s probably taking his laptop packed with critical data and his great new photos.
But as countless dads have learned the hard way: the more trips you take, the more chances there are for your computer to trip-up. This is why it’s critical to always keep a durable backup drive available when on the road. Article Continues…
Your iPad does a lot for you. Not only does it allow you basic access to your email, messages, and the Internet, but it also lets you read magazines, watch movies, and listen to music on the go. And don’t forget extremely useful apps like the Melon Meter, Gym Shamer, or Bacon Clock. Your iPad is so generous that if it could, I’m sure it would even walk your dog, take out the garbage, and do your laundry… (actually, someone somewhere is probably working on it).
And when you consider everything your iPad does for you, you realize—what have you done for your iPad lately? What can you do for a device that gives so much and expects so little in return? Article Continues…

The all new iPad 2 models were released today and OWC employees were among the crowds gathering up our own. Here are some unboxing photos to enjoy:
With all the iPad peripherals out there, sometimes it’s hard to separate the wheat from the chaff. We here at OWC firmly believe the Newer Technology line of cases, shells, stands and other equipment are amongst the upper echelon of iPad peripherals.
Recently, John Martellaro of The Mac Observer did an in-depth review of the NuGuard Shell for iPad, and he had nothing but great things to say about it. You can read the full review on the Mac Observer Web site, but here’s just a couple of his musings on the NuGuard:
- This kind of case is really better around the office or home because when you’re sitting with the iPad in your lap, the cover flap of folio-type cases gets in the way.
- “…it not only feels good but provides for a non-slip surface.”
- “It has just the right rigidity to be strong and keep its shape, yet it’s flexible enough to attach to the iPad without effort.”
- “…around the house or office, this is a terrific, minimalist case.”
- It’s great and very modestly priced.
Thanks for the love, John!
