Cash for clunkers becomes so popular lately. It’s official name is Car Allowance Rebate System (CARS) which is basically a US government program where US citizen can trade in their old clunker cars for a credit of $3,500 or $4,500 toward a new car. Its goal is to save the US economy and reduce pollution.
But do you know that you can also get cash for your junks!
Nope, cash for junks is a different program than cash for clunkers. It’s not conducted by US government
You can get cash for your old iPod, Apple laptop, XBOX, PlayStation, cameras and basically all of your old unwanted electronic and gadgets!

Restarting the MacBook didn’t resolve the problem either. After browsing for a while, I found out that it’s a common Mac problem. And here’s how to fix it: Continue reading

It’s the first happen to me. One of WordPress blog gave me this error message when I tried to installed and activated a new plugin: File is writable by others, please fix permissions and try again.

I currently use WordPress 2.7.1 and it was installed using cPanel and automatically upgraded using WordPress Automatic Upgrade like my other WordPress blogs. So there’s nothing different here.
The problem is obviously file permission. But which one? Continue reading

After being so fed up with Windows’ slowness, including frequent freezing and losing of unsaved data, I braved myself to get myself a Mac. So yesterday I bought myself the new aluminum MacBook along with the cordless Mighty Mouse
I must admit that it was not an easy decision. After all I’ve been using Windows for almost half of myself and the price tag of the MacBook is about 3 times of Dell Inspiron notebook. I browsed many Mac forum and asking questions, and also asked my friends who got the enlightenment (moved from Windows to Mac).
Before making my ultimate decision, Continue reading
