WinX has given me the opportunity to offer 10 licenses to my readers. Since I don’t have many (haha) that should not be too much of a problem. These are licenses are for the full version of the great DVD ripping program. DVD Ripper Platinum supports decrypting the latest copy protection methods, which makes it easy to rip the latest movies. To get a free license from me simply just reply in the comments in this post, with your best joke, or just tell me something funny that has happened to you. The first 10 people get licenses! ENJOY!

Update: I now have 14 more licenses!

App of the day – Ninite

After you format a computer, you need to reinstall if not also re download all the installation files, that can take a lot of time, and be annoying to sit through all those installation menus. However thanks to a daneault over at reddit I was able to find a program that makes life so much easier! Ninite is a great program that allows you to pick some of the most popular software to be installed on your machine with simplicity. You simply go to the site and select your favorite programs (you can recommend a program if it is not on the site) and then download a small installation file. Once you open that file, it downloads and installs all the programs you selected previously. So this means you will still have to be connected to the internet, however in this day and age, broadband is everywhere. The types of programs are nicely organized in the following categories: Web Browsers, Messaging, Media, Imaging, Documents, Security, Runtimes, File Sharing, Other, Utilities, Compression, and Developer Tools. As you can see there is an extensive list of categories, and the list of software is too long to list in this short blog post.  Seriously I use to waste so much time installing software, but now this automated tool makes it so much easier and it actually makes formatting a pc fun again! This software should work on Win Xp and up and supports 32 and 64bit installations.

So next time you format a pc, head on over to Ninite.com to make it a better experience!

WinX DVD Ripper for Mac Giveaway

The nice people at WinX have let me know that they are having a giveaway for their newest software for the Mac OS X Platform. WinX DVD Ripper promises to rip all DVDs (including all the latest copy protections) to any output you could possibly think of. I only launched the software and quickly played around, but did not rip a DVD yet. I found it nice that they tried to keep it simple (Mac philosophy), yet gave the user full control, trust me that is hard to do since I come from an MIS major. Another really cool thing I liked was the ability to control the amount of CPUs to use for an operation. Since I have a four core Xeon processor, that might help out in the ripping speed. Only constructive critisisim I have at this point is to try and make the interface look more Mac like, while some people don’t care about this I think it would look nicer. Since it is still new, maybe they can incorporate that thought later down the line.

Now about the Giveaway. They are giving away the software free of charge to launch the software. This giveaway expires on May 1st, 2010 at 12:00GMT so grab it while you can.

Photo of the day – Electronics Recycling at Futureshop

Electronics recycling

Today I took my Creative Nomad Jukebox to futureshop to get it recycled. Why? Because it’s not worth much anymore and I don’t want it to end up in a landfill one day. From now on any electronic that I want to dispose of will go to get recycled. Futureshop has this service at all store I think and it is free. So next time you want to throw away a gadget save it until you go to futureshop to save the planet! (Best buy and other major retailers should have the same type of program, Ask around and help save the planet!!)

So I heard this song in the end of Episode 18 (Off the Rails) of 90210 and spent two days trying to find the name of the song. Finally I found it on this website. It’s not too popular yet, and so I thought I would share it with everyone. It’s not even on iTunes yet. You can download it (LEGALLY) for free from here (for a limited time). Just scroll down and right click save as on download the single CLICK HERE.
