Does your Apple Magic Mouse jitter, slow-down, have connection issues, or just have an odd inconsistent performance. If so there’s an easy to install fix that alleviates those problems almost all of the time… change the batteries.
Yep, the Apple Magic Mouse, and Trackpad for that matter, appear to be a bit finicky when it comes to power. I’ve even experienced issues where using two different types of batteries cause issues, or two batteries at two different charge levels – which can happen a lot if you’re into using rechargeable batteries like I am.
In any case, don’t fret my Mac friends, a simple battery swap out can save the day.
What’s that? You’re mouseless or trackpadless? See our collection of mice, or get a a nifty new trackpad.
Tax season. It’s the dreaded inevitability we face every spring. And we all know what kind of stress that can come along with it. Missed deadlines, forgetting to deduct your generous charitable contributions, careless math … there’s so much that can go wrong when navigating this minefield.
While we here at Other World Computing can’t help you beat procrastination and meet that ever-nearing April 15 deadline, we can help you hit the right digits when you file. Mathematical mistakes are common when doing taxes and they can actually end up costing you money. Needless to say, it’s important to enter the correct numbers when filing, and this small investment can help you do just that.
The Cropmark LMP Bluetooth Keypad is the perfect addition to any Apple wireless keyboard and makes punching the right numbers a breeze when you file. It also pairs well with your MacBook or any other Bluetooth capable Macintosh.
The key to the Cropmark keypad that makes it so great lies in its ability to physically connect to the Apple wireless keyboard. And its durable plastic frame is designed to match your keyboard’s aluminum finish for a seamless look. The Cropmark keypad features 28 keys for convenient entering of figures, tables and calculations. Of course, it includes figures 0-9, operation keys, hot-keys, page up/down, arrow up/down, delete forward and an enter function key as well. And there’s no dongle or driver installation required, so it’s easy to use!
And OWC shipping will make sure you get it fast, so you can get started on your number-crunching and get the refund you deserve.

At Other World Computing, it’s our pleasure to provide you with regular tips, how-to’s, and insights so you can get the most from your technology.
Unfortunately, a misconception exists that upgrading is hard or can’t be done at all. We’re here to dispel those notions by explaining how you can add a second hard drive or SSD to a MacBook, MacBook Pro, and Mac mini.
With the exception of special configurations, Mac mini, MacBook, and MacBook Pro computers have shipped with a single hard drive for the past four years. Currently, you can replace the factory drive with a new, larger hard drive up to 1.0TB. Or, you can add SSD performance with capacities up to 960GB. By watching our acclaimed how-to videos you’ll have the confidence to “DIY” it. Article Continues…

In mathematics, the easiest equations to solve are the simplest equations. And like in math, this principle applies to your technology. At Other World Computing, this philosophy is put into practice when providing an easy equation for upgrading your machine. To put it simply: More Memory = A Faster Mac.
When using a computer, one of the most important factors is speed. Speed affects how smoothly applications will run and how many can run at once. Running multiple apps with insufficient memory can cause drastic slowdowns, costing you valuable work time. And programs like Photoshop, Final Cut Pro, iMovie, even iPhoto can be severely limited by too little memory.
As outlined previously here at the OWC blog, upgrading your memory is incredibly easy. All you need to do is check your model ID number with ‘About This Mac’. Then use OWC’s memory guide to see how much your Mac can take and the cost. If you need help installing the memory, installation videos make this a simple “DIY” job for almost any Mac.

Elite, Extreme, Pro…those are just a few of the descriptive terms found in many of our products’ names. We use them because we push the envelope past what’s commonly available because we know that’s what you’ve come to expect from us.
While the OWC Blog is mostly centered on news about products, Mac teardown tips & findings, and industry news, we do occasionally cut loose and have some fun. But, that fun is also taken to the extreme to honor that “work hard, play hard” phrase.
Most nights at CES, the OWC team eats dinner right after the show closes and then we hit our rooms to do, as I say, our “day jobs”. This year, I knew I had to make some time to make one night an extreme adventure. Article Continues…
