F.A.L.C.O. Episodes 4 And 5 Are Ready for ConsumptionEric Murphy

Of course "work" is a relative term, my kids were actually very excited to play Never Alone with me in front of potentially millions of people (potentially). What suckers! Anyway, that brings us to episode 4 of Friday Awesomely Live Co-Op: Never Alone With Kids. My adorable daughters, Payton and Emma, set aside a little over an hour of their busy schedules to play an awesome co-op gem called Never Alone. It's breathtakingly beautiful, has adorable characters, has a touching story, and is chock full of educational video clips about the Iñupiaq Alaskan Native tribe. Never Alone a great game to play with your kids.

OWC has sent over their recent Xbox One offering for such an option. The OWC Upgrade Kit for Xbox One 1TB Hybrid drive offers double the storage capacity of the Xbox One’s original standard drive for about $125. There’s a good variety of other USB 3.0 drives out there too, but we’re comparing it directly against the Western Digital 1TB USB 3.0 MyPassport with a slightly less MSRP, but can be had for about half the price. So what’s the difference between the two? Namely the hybrid drive from OWC utilizes an SSD caching mechanism to theoretically speed up loading times on games. Specifically the drive uses a Toshiba 6Gb/s 5400RPM drive with 8GB of NAND storage and 64MB of cache.
