Apple has released 10.8.3. Fixes a lot of issues, especially the one in which you could make a browswer crash by inputting a file address. You can download it from the Mac App Store, or if you want the combo link (updates any version of mountain lion) you can download it from Apple’s Website. I always like to grab the combo update and put it on my USB flash drive so I can update any family member or friends mac, without having to download additional updates.
You might be wondering why there is a picture of Palmolive Oxy at the top of this post. A few months back I had recieved some free Dishwashing soap for free with my groceries. It’s always nice to get something free, but it really sucked. I had to squeeze a huge amount to get any lather. Then while at a friends house I noticed he was using Palmolive Oxy. I could smell it from a couple of meters away and it smelled fantastic, great, so exuberant. Haha I had to over do it. Anyways I bought it next time I was getting dishwashing soap and it was only a few more cents than the normal brands (and even cheaper than some cheap brands go figure). One drop is all it took to lather really well. Sometimes you really do get what you pay for.
Today I am able to give away an uncertain amount of licenses for WinX DVD Ripper Platinum. Thanks to the people at WinX. There are 30,000 licenses up for grabs, first come first serve. So hopefully I can create some buzz for them. So click on the link below and enjoy ripping your DVDs while you stuff your face with some Turkey.
A couple of days ago I started seeing posts on Reddit about Pizza being a vegetable. Turns out the story is the US Congress Labeled it as a vegetable for school lunches. Wow things like this keep proving that corporate interests are favored over human wellbeing.
One amazing thing that I love about having multiple Apple products on the network is that they are aware of each other. Today after getting home from work, I was notified that a firmware update for my Airport Extreme was available. Why would I have an expensive router? Because Apple routers are very solid and I still have had to reset one in the three or four years that I’ve been dealing with them. It’s good to just buy one router than to keep replacing one every couple of years.
I watched the third instalment of the Pacquiao Marquez battle, and I was severely disappointed. I honestly would have even thought Marquez won the fight. This probably won’t go over easy, and if possible they would want another one. The controversy won’t come to rest until one of them is knocked out.
I could have sworn I saw another one, but I guess it was just an online ad. Anyways usually I would not care about posting this, but Apple nailed the uses for Siri in my opinion. Wow what a marketing machine.
Today the news spread around the world really fast, that Gaddafi was captured, then killed. The pictures followed quickly. I remember I thought the picture was really tormenting, reminded me of The Joker as played by Heath Ledger in The Dark Knight. When I see things like this I really cringe at humanity, but I don’t want to get too carried away here. Anyways I feel it’s hard to know how to feel here. On one hand the the guy killed his own people. Wait let me clarify that better, he hired mercenaries to kill his own people. At the same time, I don’t like seeing people get killed even if they were drunk with power. To me it’s really sad when people celebrate a death, and just wrong. I’m sure many would disagree, but that’s how I feel about the subject.
