It’s always there for you—it helped you out that time you and your friends got in a heated debate over who won the Stanley Cup in 1984, that time you needed to take a video of yourself trying to drink as much milk as possible in 10 minutes, and provided a wonderful distraction during that awkward weekend you spent in Vermont with your girlfriend’s parents. Sometimes it even shares your bed.
But too often we take it for granted—we throw it around, yell at it, and sometimes we even let it die (the battery, that is…we’re not monsters). So what better time than Valentine’s Day to show your device that it is in fact loved and appreciated? Unfortunately our devices typically don’t enjoy flowers, diamonds, or even giant teddy bears. But luckily for you, OWC has the perfect gift idea—give your device the warm embrace of a NuGuard KX for Valentine’s Day!
With the help of OWC’s new line of NuGuard KX for the iPhone 5C and the Samsung Galaxy S4, you can put a giant smile on your device’s face (I’m sure there’s an app for that). Now’s the perfect time to show your iPhone 5C that you “C” a future together with a new colorful and ultra-protective case. Tell your Samsung Galaxy S4 that you think that it is “out of this world” by keeping it safe from unexpected impact. And don’t forget our already beloved line of KX cases for the iPhone 4/4S and 5/5S, and the iPad mini and iPad Air. Article Continues…

NewerTech announced today its new line of NuGuard KXs Impact X-Orbing Screen Armor for the iPhone 4/4S/, 5/5C/5S, iPad mini, iPad mini with Retina display, iPad Air and full-size iPad. Protection against accidental drops, impacts and scratches comes without sacrificing looks or adding bulk, and two coverage options – Full Size and Case Friendly – offer choice. The KXs has an ultra-thin, hyper-advanced energy x-orbing protective layer that offers incredible scratch, shatter, and impact protection without impeding the display or affecting the screen’s touch sensitivity or clarity.
“The NuGuard KXs does it all – superior protection and great function – without impeding the display,” said Larry O’Connor, president of NewerTech. “It takes the hit, so your iDevice doesn’t have to, keeping your screen looking like new. It’s a perfect complement to the NewerTech KX line of energy x-orbing cases for iDevices.” Article Continues…
Other World Computing has expanded its Mercury Elite Pro Dual mini portable hardware-RAID storage product line with two new 3.0TB models, available as 3.0TB RAID-1 (for robust data protection) or 3.0TB RAID-0 (for maximum performance).
What it does: This bus-powered (no AC adapter is required) unit stores a tremendous amount of data safely using RAID technology, or even more data with super-fast access. Featuring hardware RAID-1 (mirrored) redundancy for data protection or RAID-0 (striped) for maximum throughput, the Mercury Elite Pro Dual mini contains two 2.5″ hard drives or OWC Mercury Electra 6G SSDs for up to 3.0TB of capacity. A “quad interface” of FireWire 800, FireWire 400, USB 2.0, and eSATA connections delivers data transfer speeds of up to 300MB/s with Mac and PC computers.
Why it’s cool: It’s the ultimate portable storage solution for professional users. Lightweight, bus-powered, and impact-resistant, in a 5.6 in (D) x 6.1 in (W) x 1.1 in (H) brushed aluminum enclosure with near silent, fanless operation, the Mercury Elite Pro Dual mini fits easily into laptop, photography, and other gear bags because of its side-by-side drive orientation. Fast, hardware-RAID technology is ideal for demanding data storage and backup needs, and can be configured with either high-performance hard disks or SSDs.
