Pre-Owned iPad 2s On Special At OWC

Thursday, May 23rd, 2013 | Author:

Have we got a deal for you. OWC has got iPad 2s on special!

32GB iPad 2 WiFi + 3G models from $319 


64GB iPad 2 WiFi + 3G models from $355

Not only are these prices lower than Apple refurbished pricing for the same WiFi only models, but these are with Verizon or AT&T cellular capability (which can be left off for WiFi only use) as a substantially added value.

These pre-owned iPad 2s have been thoroughly inspected, tested and made ready to find new homes and businesses where they can be appreciated once more. They’re in excellent functional condition, but have already been “broken in” to save you that heartbroken feeling from doing it yourself.

Supplies on OWC’s iPad 2s are limited, so in order to take advantage of these great deals you’ll need to act fast. And as always, our Pre-Owned iPad 2s come with a 180 day warranty and a 14 day 100% money-back guarantee, and you’ll also receive an Apple original dock and AC charger.

Want some extra protection or accessories for your iPad when you get it? We’ve got that covered to. From Newer Technology Pad Protectors and GripStands, to genuine Apple Smart Covers and other great accessories, we’ve got something for everyone!

AirPort Apparently Not The Best Place For Time Machine

Tuesday, November 15th, 2011 | Author:

We’ve gotten a couple of emails from readers wondering how to get Time Machine to work with an AirPort.

Well… theoretically, getting the DeLorean up to 88 miles per hour on a long stretch of tarmac would probably be fairly straightforward. Take a base 0-60 time of 8.8 seconds, factor acceleration curve for 60-88mph, account for deceleration while swerving around the occasional 747, and you’ll need about …

… What? You meant using Time Machine via an AirPort Base Station?


That’s something completely different – and a lot easier to talk about.

The Theory

In early 2008, Apple introduced Time Capsule, which essentially combined an AirPort Base Station and a 500GB-1TB hard drive. At first glance, replicating this setup with a AirPort Extreme Base Station would seem to be fairly simple.

First, you attach a drive (such as a NewerTech miniStack, which stacks nicely underneath) to the USB port on your Base Station. Then, mount it on your desktop like you would any other remote drive. Finally, select it as your TimeMachine backup disk and let it run. After the initial (lengthy) backup, Time Machine will mount the drive remotely when connected to the network, run its backup, then disconnect – just like with Time Capsule.
