AirPort Apparently Not The Best Place For Time Machine

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...

Retro Apple: How HyperCard Changed the World One Stack at a Time

HyperCard was a powerful, yet extremely easy to use tool for creating “stacks” — essentially flat-file databases that used hyperlinks as a way of navigating a stack of “cards”. You have to understand that at the time HyperCard was first released in 1987, there was no World Wide Web, so the concept of hyperlinks was completely new.

Spring is traditionally the time to clean out the cobwebs, dust, and dirt that have collected after you’ve been closed up in the house all winter. As long as you’re in a cleaning mode, it’s a good idea to take the time to clean up your Mac and other electronic equipment. Dust, dirt, and even cobwebs have been known to cling to a Mac, and not only mar the look, but also block airflow, or hinder the working of mechanical components. Taking the time to clean your Mac can help extend its useful life. As long as you’re doing a bit of cleaning, you may as well do a little Mac maintenance as well, to ensure your Mac not only looks good, but also continues to perform at its best.

OWC Think Green with wind turbine

Changing the World One Drop at a Time

On any given day, people wake up with a purpose and a drive towards some goal or objective. We make the best decisions we can for ourselves, our families, and those that depend on us. We try and choose the best technologies and providers of our technology needs, and to have the best tools at our side as we pursue our goals. Sometimes that means working to persuade our company, workplace, or boss to understand a better way. OWC chooses Apple because of consistently reliable and safe operating systems, great software, and quality that lasts. PCs are catching up, and that's a good thing, but this isn't a Windows vs. Mac issue. It's much more than that...
