It’s nearing the end of July and that means the stores are all featuring a few specific things—clearance mismatched swimsuits, returned camping equipment from dashed dreams of summer expeditions, and college and back to school gear. When shopping for these college supplies, it’s important to note that you can save a lot of money buying things used. Beanbag chairs work fine when you duct tape the holes (call it an artistic expression), that giant box TV is free and it still works if you drum out the solo from ”In A Gadda Da Vida” on it to get it going, and you know with a little TLC you can scrape the mysterious substance off that used microwave. But there are many things you should never buy used—a comforter, someone’s shower flip-flops, a sandwich maker—all of these things are a little too up close and personal. And then there are some things that everyone will suggest you buy but you shouldn’t buy at all—take for instance the body pillow. That thing will take up over half of your standard issue twin sized bed from 1996 and somehow steal all your covers in the middle of the night. Don’t ask me how this happens, it just does.

While saving space and looking great, this evolution also has drawbacks. With ultra-thin designs, something must fall by the wayside. And in new iMacs, rMBPs, MacBook Airs and Mac minis, one important part is left out — an optical drive.
New, thinner Macs aren’t the only machines that suffer from a lack of an optical drive. In older Macs, the drive can simply wear out over time. Naturally, Other World Computing makes it easy to replace a failed drive or add one as an external! Article Continues…
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.
