I'd like to thank Newer Technology (and, of course, their parent company, Other World Computing) for sponsoring TMO here this week. The focus this week is on their Power2U replacement wall outlet. The Power2U has two AC outlets just like you're used to, and then also has two USB ports that are capable of 2A (10W) of charging power, enough to properly and quickly charge your iPad, iPhone, or other USB-based device. Just plug in your USB cables and go.
I'm happy to welcome Other World Computing back as this week's sponsor for us here at TMO. This week we're focusing on OWC's memory upgrades, and I couldn't be happier about this. If my history of the company is correct, I believe RAM was one of OWC's very first product lines, and Larry and the team over there really learned to obsess over getting the technical details right — a trait that has stuck with the company all the way through today.
I'd like to thank BitSuites for sponsoring TMO this week. BitSuites is an iOS app development team that takes a different approach, and one that works. Indeed, we've worked with BitSuites — they wrote our Mac Geek Gab iOS app for us — and it was a hugely positive experience.
I'd like to thank Parallels for sponsoring this week here at TMO. Parallels Desktop 8 for Mac is virtualization software that allows you to run Windows and many other operating systems on your Mac right alongside OS X. Need to run Windows software for work or perhaps even run a new game you want to check out? Parallels will do it. Or maybe you want to test out some other flavor of Unix on your Mac? Ever want to give Debian or Ubuntu a spin? Parallels will do all of that that, as well.
Our thanks go to Other World Computing for sponsoring TMO this week and helping us kick off this new program here. Our focus this week is on OWC's Data Doubler, their kit that allows you to add a second drive to your iMac, MacBook Pro or Mac Mini, and get up to 2.5TB of internal storage. With kits starting at just $49.99, you can replace the optical drive in your MacBook Pro with another SSD or a larger mechanical drive.
