Kick Back with the Rocket Yard’s Tech Guide for Labor Day

PrintIt’s officially Labor Day weekend, so hopefully you’re already lying next to the pool, spending time with friends and family and working only in front of the grill.

Labor Day is a special time, so the Rocket Yard has put together a guide to educate you on some of the finer points of the holiday that celebrates the labor movement and to give tips on how to make the most of it. But we sincerely hope you don’t consider reading this guide to be too laborious. Irony is not lost on us.

White is always in fashion
We know, we know. In high society, you’re not supposed to wear white after Labor Day. But if you’re anything like this OWC staffer, you don’t see yourself as part of high society … or middle society for that matter. And besides, while the de facto leading authority on all things Labor Day says that it’s unfashionable to wear white after the holiday, it says nothing about carrying white.

No matter your stance on this divisive issue, OWC has plenty of items sure to please the eye of any fan of white hardware and accessories.

Remember when white was Apple’s color of choice for Macs? You can recapture that nostalgic feeling with OWC’s Used Mac selection. We also have all the white Apple and NewerTech accessories to complement your new or old Mac, such as power adapters, mice, keyboards and cases.

Take it from us, white tech is always in fashion.

The weekend in sports
nustand360_angle2Labor Day weekend isn’t just about relaxing and spending time with your family. It’s also about relaxing and spending time with your TV. With the college football season kicking off, pennant-race baseball, U.S. Open tennis and WNBA playoff action, it’s one of the best sports weekends of the year. And this year we even get the FIBA Basketball World Cup, and we’re not even counting the approaching NFL season.

Overwhelmed? You should be. That’s because one screen is no longer enough for the Labor Day sports weekend. And you’re not going to live the dream of having two TVs in your living room, are you? If you’re like me, you use your iPad as your second screen to stream live games. And if you’re even more like me, you’ll need something to hold your iPad while you hold a drink.

The NuStand 360 is a perfect companion that lets you watch games in widescreen landscape mode or flip to portrait to follow your fantasy teams or pick’em pools. Want to go mobile with your sports viewing? The NuGuard GripStand is the perfect multipurpose tool for carrying and watching.

Back to school
Of course, Labor Day has a whole ‘nother meaning for the youth: imminent school work. But if you’re one of the lucky ones spending this final holiday weekend until Thanksgiving dreading anticipating going back to school, we have everything you need to kick off the year right on our Back to School page!

If you’re going to go, you might as well go back in style. But, more importantly, remember that Thanksgiving is only 89 days away.
