Skyrim on Steam 0

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim on Sale for $4.99 (£2.49)

As part of the Steam Summer Sale, one of the huge deals of the promotion is Skyrim.  The game is normally £9.99 but has been reduced to £2.49($4.99). At the time of publishing, there is only one hour left on this deal. So if you’ve been waiting for a good discount on this game, then now is the best time to jump on it. And jump on it now because this is a great game with a metascore of 94/100. For the record, I never actually played Skyrim. I wanted to do so but could not afford the hefty price tag when the game came out. However, now that the game is at a superb discount, I have already pulled the trigger. If this metascore rating is anything to go by, then it clearly is a great game and one you should download for PC. In case if...

I Replace the Macbook Optical Drive with OWC Data Doubler

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: iTunes | RSSIn part one I showed you how I replaced the Macbook hard drive with an OWC SSD. Because of this, I now have an extra hard drive lying around.

It’s called the OWC Data Doubler – a metal cage that forms to the specs of the DVD drive but allows me to put in my old hard drive, or another SSD. In this video, I go through the steps to take the old DVD drive out of my Early 2011 Macbook Pro and put the Data Doubler in with my old hard drive. Get the OWC Data Doubler Of course, this information is going to be slightly different depending...
