OWC Offers More Memory Choices For OS X Lion Users

While Apple’s official minimum RAM requirement for OS X Lion is 2GB, industry experts agree 4GB of RAM is the minimum that should be installed for optimum performance of typical daily computer usage. For more advanced uses such as graphics production, A/V editing, and/or running a virtual machine, 8GB to 16GB of RAM is highly recommended.

With the largest lab of Apple computers outside of Apple, we’re pleased to continue our streak of being first to fully test and certify these new 12GB and 16GB options for Mac min 2011 and furthering their amazing capability,” said Larry O’Connor, Founder and CEO, Other World Computing. “Having our own on-site memory test lab ensures the quality, reliability, and capability not just for standard factory supported options, but also for development and certification of ‘MaxRAM’ memory upgrades to support user needs that require higher maximum amounts of installed memory otherwise not factory available.

OWC MaxRAM Lab Confirms Performance And Compatibility

By maintaining its own lab with the industry’s most extensive collection of Apple Macintosh computers only second to Apple itself, OWC is uniquely positioned to develop memory upgrade kits that deliver maximum capacity, performance, and savings. OWC Memory Upgrade Kits are engineered with premium quality components and are fully tested and certified to meet, if not surpass, all Apple memory design and compatibility specifications and come backed by a Lifetime Advance Replacement Warranty.

Move Applications out of the Applications folder in OS X Lion

Have you noticed when you try and move an application out of the /Applications folder in Mac OS X Lion you will end up creating an alias of the app instead? This is a security feature that is new to Lion, intended to help prevent accidentally deleting or moving apps, and in some ways it’s convenient way to quickly make an app alias.

If you want to move an app out of the Applications folder, hold down the Command key while dragging the app.

You will continue to need to enter the administrator password if you attempt to uninstall an app by dragging it into the Trash though.

The Talk-o-Meter: Measure the Give and Take in Your Conversations

Conversation is an art. And, as with other art forms, creating a good conversation requires careful use of positive and negative space. In other words, you generally don't want one person dominating a conversation by talking all the time.

Technology to the rescue. The Talk-o-Meter is an iPhone app that's designed to give people feedback about how much they're talking in a conversation. You place your phone on the table and the app automatically recognizes the voices of the interlocutors and keeps track how much time each person spends talking. During the conversation, the screen displays the balance of talking time in 1-, 2-, or 5-minute intervals. If one person's talking much more than the other, you can see it on the screen. Right now the app only works for conversations between two people "who do not have similar voices and talk in a quiet environment." A version for conversations between more people is in the works.

It would be pretty passive-aggressive to pull this out when you sit down to coffee with a confessed chatterbox, but you could use it covertly if you're just curious about whether your conversations have an equitable give-and-take. We all like civilized discourse, right?
