Final Titan Tech Tip for Tuesday, June 14, 2011

Tuesday, June 14th, 2011

Well, it’s been a great few years doing the tech tip, and I’ve really enjoyed everyone’s support in reviving it from the middle school days. I’ve had lots of fun! It being Webster Thomas’ last day of school, I decided to give a rather appropriate tech tip for the coming summer months. Everyone enjoys sitting out in the sun, perhaps by a pool, with a nice cold beverage in hand. However, after a while, say you don’t want to hold that beverage any longer. You need a cupholder! Give this a try, it should fix your problem!

Titan Tech Tip for Tuesday, June 7, 2011

There are so many places to get music from today that are… of questionable source, legality, and whatnot. Well, I don’t have a solution to that, other than pony up the cash, but here’s perhaps the simplest way to find music that’s hiding deep within the recesses of the Internet. MPPP.it (pronounced MP3) is a website which searches the Internet for the song that you’re looking for, and provides you a download link for it. Just type in the name of the song, and wait for it to appear in the list below the search box. Then, click on it to download it, or even play it on the website to make sure it’s what you want. Again, the legality of this, I’m not entirely sure… that’s up to you to find out! Do with it what you may!

So, you buy a new computer, which is sweet! Love new computers! And you start it up for the first time, and instantly, the problems begin. Offers of “Free Internet Access”, and “Free Trial of Such-n-such-a-program” pop up. It’s official. Your brand-spanking-new computer has crapware.

Crapware is software that the computer manufacturer installs on your new computer at the factory, generally in the form of “free” trials and such that force you to buy the full version of the program. Normally, you’d have to uninstall all of the “crapware” individually, but the PC DeCrapifier takes care of all of them, automatically! Give it a try!
