The chaos of Black Friday seems to happen earlier and earlier every year. In fact, the mayhem starts so early, they should probably rename it Black Thursday-Friday.
But no matter how early you get in line for those time-release specials, there’s a chance that the supply is exhausted before the line is. And if you do get lucky and get what you want, your reward is another line just to check out. It’s quite a contrast to the calm and ease of doing your shopping online.
Avoid the mayhem. Shop Online with OWC.

DrivePulse is a convenient tool within the award-winning Drive Genius 3 software that monitors the overall health of your Mac hard drives by alerting you to possible issues before they become major problems. Mac OS X does not include any utility to do this, so DrivePulse is a valuable tool to protect and monitor the health of your hard drives.
How does DrivePulse work?
DrivePulse monitors the health of your internal or external hard drives daily when your computer is idle for five minutes to check for errors, fragmentation, or bad blocks.
How do I use DrivePulse?
After installing Drive Genius 3, you just need to enable the DrivePulse feature. From there you will see the DrivePulse icon (the rectangle highlighted below) now located in the top right section of your toolbar. Article Continues…
As you may have read last week, we here at OWC are looking to make our Austin facility more energy-efficient from the top down.
Work continues on the installation of solar panels on the roof of our downtown office building. And as you can see in the photos below, the grid is now being installed and the roof will soon be ready for the ultra-efficient panels that are expected to provide no less than 32 percent of the building’s annual power consumption.
But the solar panels are just one step in our company-wide commitment to energy conservation and environmental leadership that includes our LEED Platinum Certified headquarters in Woodstock, Ill. Be sure to bookmark the OWC Blog for updates on OWC’s green initiatives and to see the finished solar panel project. Article Continues…
You might have noticed that we here at OWC take our green initiatives pretty seriously. (Others sure have!).
From our LEED Platinum Certified headquarters to our on-site Vestas V39-500 kW wind turbine, we have made a company-wide commitment to energy conservation and environmental leadership.
And now that we’ve expanded our operation with a facility in the great city of Austin, Texas, we thought it would be the perfect opportunity to also expand our environmental efforts.
OWC’s efficient new facility sits right in downtown Austin. But because we moved into an existing facility, we weren’t able to build our efforts from the ground up like we did at our Woodstock, Ill. headquarters. But we’ve taken a new approach to that “work from the ground up” philosophy: Working from the top down.
