Ever wonder why you didn’t get invited to the last “party bus” event that all your uber cool friends happened to all be at? Sitting and clicking refresh hundreds of times trying to find that ex who you lost touch with? Yah me either, but if you are one of those individuals there is a grand little app for you. UnFriend Finder not only displays a notification when someone unfriends you, but also when someone ignores your request, so you can put that asshole in the spotlight! It is not retroactive so you won’t see activity that occurred before you install the app, but it can tell you about your friends who have removed their facebook accounts and are no longer active. For all the fun times ahead and drama with it, click the link :)

CLICKY THIS LINKY to download and install

Ok so your here because your searching for a crack, or “hack”, or activation bypass because A. You have a bunk pirated copy of Microsoft office 2010 B. Your trial version has expired and you can no longer modify your documents C. Your a starving student and you don’t want to waste your dough on a legit copy because you reallly want to take out that hot chick in that one class your obviously not paying attention in. Whatever your reason… I have your solution.

I’m keeping this short and simple, but as always if you don’t know how to do it or don’t know what your doing, then just drop a comment and I’ll walk your through it.

Go HERE and download this torrent with your favorite torrent client of choice (mine is utorrent).  Once you’ve spent the whole 1 minute it should take to download that tiny file, open it up, run the INSTALLER, you know…the button that says “install”, ONLY then do you run the “re-authorize” or however he/she describes it. You’ll know what I mean once you click the link already.

The download like many cracks causes a false positive with some anti-virus clients, so don’t flip your wig and report some rookie ass crap like, “wraaaaa my Noobish Norton says it’s a trojan“.  It works well, I tested it, my first run through I didn’t apply it correctly, so it didn’t reset the already expired version of Microsoft Office 2011 Professional, on my second time around I installed it, then applied the reset and it worked flawlessly. You can use this as an indefinite workaround, however you have to reset every 180 days. But after 180 days, you should have already taken that hot chick out and should have the dough to cough up on a legit license.

Hello everyone! If you’ve noticed I’ve again been slow on the blogging the last couple weeks, and I have to yet again apologize for the delays. So many projects and jobs to work on, sometimes I feel like a hexacore CPU with all threads loaded!

I’ve been working on a personal project though, which is very rare! As many of my readers know I am a passionate filmmaker and I am usually filming or editing when I’m not geeking out. I have another site at www.HomelessInterviews.com and it’s the project site for my upcoming documentary film called “Project H.i.”.

I just launched my Kickstarter project so I’m asking every dedicated reader to check it out and support me as I have supported all of you!

You can go directly to my Kickstarter campaign by clicking HERE.

Thanks for supporting the blog, and especially for supporting me, I couldn’t do it without the community!

I’m mobile at the moment so I’ll keep this short, depending on the type of hackintosh install method you used, you may run into some trouble updating to 10.6.7, and I mean “trouble” beyond the norm of having to simply delete some kexts or “reinstall” kexts. I recently updated and had a motherload pain of a time getting QE (Quartz Extreme) to function properly.

Keep in mind, since there haven’t been any *major* updates to Snow Leopard since 10.6.6 (well if you call the integration of the Mac App store a major update), so if your running 10.6.5 and everything is working just fine, I’d say you have no real reason to update, the graphics kexts that come with the update are not compatible for most hackintosh users that are using older (9800 gtx, 280,295 etc) graphics cards will not benefit performance wise from it.

I’m just sayin….

Many subscribers have been asking, “should I renew my MobileMe account this year? I’ve heard it’s going to become a free service this year and I don’t want to pay the $99 if it’s going to be free”. That is a really great question since the rumors will most likely become true around April or in September. Recently my Mobileme expired and I debated the exact same question.

Even though I am a huge fan of Apple, I won’t hesitate to call it like I see it, after all, that’s why most of you read my blog…for the cold hard truth. $99 isn’t a lot of money in this day and age,  however it is a lot of money for cloud storage and the simple services that MobileMe offers. It is a lot of money for starving college students and the like as well. I would say the best method to determine whether or not you should renew should be based on a couple factors.

How much free storage do you have in your MobileMe cloud?

If you only use 1gb or less of space in your cloud, then most likely you are not taking the full advantage of cloud services, Gmail and a ton of other companies offer free cloud services, so if you have mobile me for the not so frequent access of some files, then maybe you shouldn’t renew. I have 6gb free, which really isn’t much. I store invoices and receipts on my MobileMe cloud, so that if a client ever wants a copy of the invoice or i I need to reference back to a past receipt, I can access them all easily from my iphone or ipad. I also store all my company files as a third backup “just in case”.

I like the security of being able to track my iphone/ipad device in case it gets lost.

If this is the case, then my friend, you’ve been kept in the closet. The service has been free for some time. You do not need to have a MobileMe account. READ HERE.

Do you have an AppleTv?

If you have an AppleTv, then you should take advantage of the awesome streaming methods via your MobileMe account. If your like me, all your photos and videos are stored and synced to the cloud, then I remove the videos and photos from my iphone so that I don’t ever run out of space. I can watch videos on my AppleTv from MobileMe. Setting my screensaver on my AppleTv to my MobileMe account is also another small +plus+.
What if I renew and then a couple months later Apple makes it a free service?

Well several things can happen here… Apple may offer a refund up to a certain amount, let’s say $35, they have done this several times in the past on other products. Apple may do nothing, because, umm… the world isn’t fair in case you were not aware. Possibly the service does not become free and you’ll be happy that you renewed your MobileMe and didn’t lose all those pictures of your college girlfriend doing that crazy stuff with the bottle.

Get your mind out of the gutter and go renew your MobileMe.
