Among our various video endeavors, our Instructional Series of videos is probably the most well-regarded. After all, how can you not like free, step-by-step instructions on upgrading your Mac?
Continuing in our pursuit of providing you with the most comprehensive instructional set offered by any source, we’ve added a couple more videos to the list. 2012 Mac mini owners are the beneficiaries this time around, with a pair of videos showing how to upgrade the Memory, and how to install a second internal drive by way of an OWC Data Doubler kit.
As always, you can find these new videos in our Tech Center, as well as on our YouTube channel, with an iTunes version to come in the near future.
Oh… and while we’re talking about videos, don’t forget to vote for OWC in the 2013 Meet Me at CES Video Contest. There’s only a few days left, so make sure to vote for us daily and let all of CES see the OWC Difference.
Once we had the new 13″ MacBook Pro with Retina display unboxed, it was just a matter of time before we installed an OWC Aura Pro SSD to see how well it worked.
Well, as these pictures show, the Aura Pro fits just fine in the 13″ rMBP’s drive caddy (something new that wasn’t in the 15″ model), and so far everything seems to be running quite solidly.
Obviously, we’ve got a battery of other tests to put the drive through and we’ll have a more definite answer by early next week, but right now, all signs are pointing to “Yes.”

Say what you want to about Apple and their controlling, even heavy-handed policies and decisions at times. But for sure, the FBI has never issued a warning to users of Apple’s devices like it did this past Friday to Android users.
The short of it is the FBI’s Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3) says it was “made aware of various malware attacking Android operating systems for mobile devices. Some of the latest known versions of this type of malware are Loozfon and FinFisher.”
There’s over a dozen recommendations on how to keep you and your Smartphone running Android safe from negative consequences.
They might have added another: Just buy an iPhone.

For years, I’ve continued to use my Apple Extended Keyboard II with a Griffin iMate (no longer available… actually both are long gone today) as my primary office keyboard. It’s sad that they don’t make that keyboard anymore, although the Matias Tactile Pro is pretty darn close. The applications I use all day make use of those function keys and as the Apple Keyboard II predates all those ‘new’ Mac control functions today’s keyboards are labeled with, they are simply boring old Function Keys with no secondary functions.

Ever since Thunderbolt was introduced last year, we’ve had users asking for that interface on OWC and Newer Technology drives. Not only that—but with FireWire 800 and USB present too. Thunderbolt is truly a remarkable interface that opens a lot of expansion options, and users typically cite speed, power, and flexibility as the forces that make the product great. To paraphrase though, ‘with great power comes greater complexity’. This complexity is both in the implementation of Thunderbolt as well as considerations for when Thunderbolt is truly the ideal solution. Article Continues…
