NewerTech’s NuTouch Gloves Go On Tour

Friday, March 8th, 2013 | Author:

As the snowy weather has showed us this week here at Other World Computing headquarters in Woodstock, Ill., winter isn’t quite finished yet. And as we – and much of the U.S. – brace for Winter’s final act, NuTouch Gloves have hit the road to show just how handy they can really be.

Newer Technology’s NuTouch Gloves were one of just a handful of products that were selected from thousands by CEA to be included in its annual Digital Answer Man Tour. The tour aims to educate consumers and showcase the newest and best products in the industry on TV, radio, in newspapers, and other media outlets. The tour will hit more than 50 media markets across the country, so there’s a good chance it will be appearing in near you.

NuTouch Gloves are featured on the tour among other major tech products such as the Apple iPad mini, Samsung Galaxy Note, Microsoft Surface, Google Nexus and a select few others.

What makes NuTouch Gloves so popular and a deserving addition to the Digital Answer Man Tour is their special conductive fiber that’s woven into all 10 fingertips. This allows you to tap, swipe, and scroll on all touch screen devices – even type on full-size touch screen keyboards – with any finger all while keeping your hands toasty warm.

So tune in to the Digital Answer Man Tour and get a look at how NuTouch gloves can add comfort and convenience to your digital lifestyle!

Microsoft Phasing Out Hotmail, Will Move Users To Outlook

Tuesday, February 19th, 2013 | Author:

As we reported on the OWC Blog in October, Microsoft has been allowing its email users to voluntarily change their Hotmail and MSN addresses over to the software company’s replacement webmail interface, Outlook.com.

And now that the new, revamped service has officially moved out of the preview stage and is available to all users, Microsoft will begin phasing out Hotmail and MSN addresses completely and automatically move all of its users to Outlook.com. This process will happen gradually and is expected to be completed by this summer.

This means if you use a Hotmail or MSN address, your hosting will change, not the email address itself. However, Microsoft is still offering the option to manually change your address at any time.

If you update your address,  you’ll also want to update your information for the “OWC Tips n’ Deals” & “Hot Deals Blast” mailings to ensure you’ll continue to receive the latest news and deals from OWC. Fortunately, updating your information is simple. With our “Tips n’ Deals” and “Hot Deals Blast,” you just need to just re-register with the new address. And as always, privacy is very important to OWC. You don’t need to worry about OWC’s lists contributing to the spam in your inbox; OWC has never and will never sell, trade, or otherwise provide your information to a third party or submit your information for another list.
