$.59 or 200 Reasons You Should Get OWC’s Newsletter

Thursday, February 18th, 2010 | Author:

The “world” here spins pretty fast so I learned in my earliest days to sign up for OWC Larry’s email-based newsletters and hot deals blasts. It’s a great way to get his perspective on industry developments as well as when there’s a great deal to be had on an item. Hey, I dig gadgets and deals with the best of ‘em. And with an inventory of over 2,600 products, there’s likely something interesting Larry has hand selected to be featured each month. Kinda like that old TV commecial from E.F. Hutton…when Larry talks or acts, one should listen.

I look forward to this treasure hunt of fun to see what he has selected. Case in point was the deals blast sent out last night. iPod cases for as low as $.59? Hard drive enclosure kits from $19? And over 200 items still on special pricing from our appearance at Macworld Expo 2010? Man, these deals are so crazy I’m thinking OWC Tim and I are going to do some very entertaining videos for OWC TV soon. One idea would be “how much tech can $20 buy you?” and then amaze you with a pile of useful items that let you get more from your Mac or idevice.

So you don’t miss out any longer, just sign up today…it’s free and you can unsubscribe at any time.

A Kinder, Gentler Look To Macsales.com

Tuesday, November 10th, 2009 | Author:

larry-n-globeyCreating a new homepage look can either be met with cheers or yawns depending on how personally invested you are in the site. We get pretty excited here about many products and often can’t help ourselves from “getting our geek on” and wanting to tell you about all the cool stuff we carry…whether it be our own OWC branded products, the products from NewerTech for which we are an exclusive distributor, or a great deal on one of the many other leading brand names in our over 2,500 item on-line catalog.

Realizing that might be a bit much and overwhelm you like a kid in a candy store, we redesigned macsales.com homepage to have a kinder, gentler look. Adding to this fresh approach is a caricature of OWC Larry himself calling your attention to products he gives a hearty thumbs up to.

So we hope this redesign (and our ongoing efforts to come) is met with cheers from you and improves your site experience with us. As always, keep your feedback coming and thank you for your trust in us as your source for your Mac, PC, iPod, and iPhone technology needs.

Not your Typical iPhone Case

Monday, July 13th, 2009 | Author:

We don’t get too excited about iPhone and iPod cases – they are more of a “personal preference” for most people – but I have to say that I have been extremely impressed and pleased with the XGear Carbon cases since I got my own at Macworld.

In a world with a million different silicon and neoprene casings, the Xgear ‘Nitrous Oxide’ line of Carbon Fiber based cases really are a world apart. I find the case to have excellent hand comfort, looks great, and is effective at protecting from drops onto hard surfaces too. One of the best features – it does not pick up lint, dust, etc. This has my ‘OWC Larry’ recommendation.

We currently carry the Xgear Carbon case for iPhone (1G, 3G, 3G S – all) – $24.99
