Apple’s iPod Event – Thoughts and Opinions…

Wednesday, September 1st, 2010 | Author: and

Every year, right around this time, we get an iTunes event. After all, what better way of getting more iTunes-related goodness for your “back-to-school and holiday shopping? However, these events can be a bit hit-or-miss. Last year’s itunes event was somewhat less than exciting, with the only significant upgrade being with the iPod nano.

This year’s event, on the other hand, had a lot to talk about: a revamp of the entire iPod line, news about iOS 4.1 and 4.2, Some updates to iTunes and a new approach to the AppleTV. OWC Chris S. and OWC Michael watched through the whole presentation, and here’s what they came away with…

New video shows how bad Tech Support can be when it’s not OWC.

Wednesday, May 26th, 2010 | Author: and

In case you missed it, yesterday was the latest episode of “The Other World” by Krishna M. Sadasivam of PC Weenies.

While Krishna has a great take on how good our tech support and customer service is, it’s really brought into sharp relief when you realize how it stacks up against “the other guys.”

Check out the video below to see just how bad it could be, and rest assured that you won’t be getting that kind of service from us!

Note: We have noticed that the video’s audio goes out of sync on the YouTube version. To see it without this annoying glitch, please check out the version on our Web site.

More hullaballoo about Hulu

Monday, February 22nd, 2010 | Author:

Okay, okay, I’ll admit it—I’m a television (and old movie) junkie. I’ll watch re-runs of CSI-NY, CSI-Miami, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, and if they come up with one, I’d probably watch CSI-Keokuk, Iowa. But I really love watching re-runs of older shows that they aren’t running even on cable anymore – shows like Hill Street Blues, Alfred Hitchcock Presents, The Pretender, Murder One, The Commish, St. Elsewhere, and Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip (my own personal favorite).

Fortunately, there’s a repository of many of our favorite television shows available online: Hulu. With Hulu, you can watch all of the shows mentioned above, and much more. If you can stand it, you can even watch back-to-back Mary Tyler Moore, Rhoda, and Lou Grant episodes. If you’re not from that era, you can also watch more recent shows like Lost, Desperate Housewives, Family Guy, House, The Simpsons, and The Office. The selection of old movies is pretty sketchy so far, but there’s a few old chestnuts – like the classic Basil Rathbone/Nigel Bruce series of The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes movies from the early 1940s – to while away an evening.
