How to download GTA IV San Andreas 

Friday, July 12, 2013 2:59:00 PM Categories: Games Windows

As you might have noticed on the last post, on Facebook there is an ad that promise you a free GTA IV San Andreas download. Are you curious to know what happens when you click it?

I documented the installation on another blog, because it will install TWELVE adwares, the article is full of images and I didn't want to make Dandandin heavy to load.

If you are curious, read the story. If you just want to download the mod, download it from http://gtaivsa.com/ (You need to have a working GTA IV copy)

How to download Whatsapp for PC 

Thursday, July 11, 2013 12:39:00 PM Categories: Cellphones Windows

On Facebook I see this scam advertising everyday, by clicking you can download Whatsapp for PC: how does it work?

The advertising is a scam: when you click it, a new windows will open and will ask to subscribe to a very expensive ringtone service. Once done that, we get the instructions page: the famous "Whatsapp per PC" it's just, an Android emulator.

In this way, you get a new emulated Android phone on your PC: you can chat with Whatsapp, but the app on your phone will be disabled! (fonte)

There is another way to get Whatsapp on a PC?

If your account is old, there is, it's Wassapp, it's an unofficial client made by Waninoko, an (ex) Wii hacker.

Do you know your username? It's your phone number; the password is the wifi MAC address if you use an iPhone or the IMEI code if you use  an Android smartphone. (If your account is new, the password is randomly generated)

Now, this is the main reason to stop using Whatsapp: the username is your phone number, everybody knows it. The password is the IMEI, easy to find by dialing *#06#. This means if you lend the phone to your friend, he could find your Whatsapp credentials and be able to read and send message in your name, easily, from his home PC!!!

 

An oil exporter backs an environmentalist movie? 

Posted by Magnetic_dud Friday, July 5, 2013 2:26:00 AM Categories: Movies

A few hours ago, while I was coming back to Italy by airplane I saw the movie Promised Land.

(The text over the poster says "the movie that oil corporations did not want you to see")

The movie is about a big gas corporation that wants to drill the countryside. The obvious ending of the movie is that natural gas is essential and cleaner than oil, but extracting it with fracking it's polluting, so it's better to preserve the landscape. With the concessions money the quality of life will improve, but will it be worthy?

After the ending I notice something: produced by Image Nation Abu Dhabi. I am shocked! Wasn't it "the movie that oil corporations did not want you to see"??

When I came back home I search more info: Image Nation Abu Dhabi is an Abu Dhabi Media division, controlled and financed by the United Arab Emirates government.

Why a nation that has one of the biggest gas reserves should back an environmentalist movie??

The only reason I could find is to send this message: Americans, don't extract your natural gas, buy from arabs.

Coincidence or scheme?
