MS Surface – Brought to you by iPad…

Tuesday, November 20th, 2012 | Author:

We’re not usually ones to simply repost other articles, but this one got everybody around the office chuckling, so we decided to share it with you.

Oprah plugs Surface tablet — from her iPad

Yes, you read that right – Oprah just Tweeted how much she loves her new MS Surface tablet – and did it from an iPad.

Take a second to let the irony sink in.

Just to make things more amusing, recall that the iPad itself was a “favorite thing ever” in 2010; it seems to have maintained its longevity.

Of course, for less… confusing… Tweets, make sure to subscribe to the OWC Twitter feed. If you subscribe before December 31, OWC is making a contribution to our charity: water fundraiser for each new subscriber.

Closeups of Mercury – Photos start rolling in

Monday, April 4th, 2011 | Author:

This nifty little tidbit crossed our desks late last week, but kept getting bumped for other, more time-sensitive articles. However, we definitely weren’t gong to let it slide by without a mention.

A couple of weeks ago, we mentioned NASA’s MESSENGER probe, which was sent to go study Mercury and return the first data about the planet since the Mariner 10 mission in the 1970s.

Well, MESSENGER has reached the innermost planet of our solar system and has started sending back pictures. Space.com has about three dozen pictures in a gallery, consisting of photos sent back by MESSENGER along with artists’ conceptual paintings. The official MESSENGER mission page has a host of other information, including mission details, more pictures, and an FAQ to cover most basic questions.

Obviously, we here at OWC have an interest in this mission; after all, our “Mercury” line of storage solutions and SSDs are a huge part of our product line. Getting a closeup look at its namesake planet (and the first look in over 30 years), is pretty darn interesting to us.
