Unlimited Music and skips on pandora

Graphic of a digital sound on black bottom

Alright if you are anything like me you really like to listen to music but I myself can not afford to buy enough songs to satisfy my diverse listening choices. Because of that I use Pandora… A lot….

So much in fact that my  radio in my truck automatically connects to my phone and starts playing pandora by default and I dont even know what small business radio stations are around me in my area . As a result I run out of time on pandora quickly and I cant stand not being able to skip songs when one comes on I do not like. This post is to help those like me learn how to bypass the system and get no ads and skip as many times as your heart desires on multiple platforms including Windows computers, Android devices, and iPhones.

THIS POST IS IN NO WAY CONDONING THEFT OF MUSIC OR PIRACY. IT IS SIMPLY EDUCATIONAL TO SHOW HOW IT CAN BE DONE Finding The Best Forklift Train the Trainer Certification. WHAT YOU DO WITH THE KNOWLEDGE IS PURELY UP TO YOU AND YOU ARE SOLELY RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY CONSEQUENCES  OF YOUR ACTIONS

First I am going to start off with the simplest and easiest one to do.

Windows:

This one was extremely simple

Goto THIS SITE and download the Saver2 bundle

Once installed there will be a couple icons listed. To listen to pandora just click the Listen Only icon, log in, and enjoy. Simple as that. Your regular media controls will work so you can skip songs and pause while in the middle of what ever game you so desire to play!

 

Android:

This one is still fairly simple I will outline the steps below (this is for both phones and tablets)

  1. Uninstall current pandora client!
  2. Enable 3rd party installs by going to settings (on my device its under settings>more>security>Unknown sources
  3. Use your phone to browse to http://bit.ly/1mnk4aC
  4. Install and enjoy!

You use this client just like the one off the app store but it does not stop you from rapidly clicking the skip button to your hearts content! (although I would recommend some sort of self control)

 

iPhone:

This one requires you to jailbreak your iDevice. Don’t know how to do this? CLICK HERE be sure to read up on the risks and the proper way to perform the jailbreak and above all DO NOT PAY A WEBSITE TO DO IT!

  1. Jailbreak device
  2. Open cydia
  3. Click the “Manage” tab
  4. Select Sources and click edit on the top right
  5. Select add
  6. type in cydia.xsellize.com/ and press add source
  7. Follow directions on the screen to add
  8. Scroll down and click Xsellize
  9. Scroll down more and find “Pandora Skip hack”
  10. Enjoy!

 

Enjoy the tunes!

Asus EEEPC T91!!!!

December 14th, 2010 | Category: Gadgets,Laptop,linux,Microsoft,Pc Mods,UMPC,Windows

Well I had my eeepc 701 for a long time [well for a laptop anyway] and I figured it was time to upgrade… and upgrade I did. I got the Asus EEEPC T91 Tablet PC. Have had it for about a month and am prepared to explain the pros and cons of this little convertible pc

First off the specs

  • Intel Atom Z520(1.33GHz, 512KB L2 Cache, FSB 533MHz)
  • 1 GB DDR2 SODIMM memory
  • 8.9″ WSVGA (1024×600) Resistive Touch Panel, w/ LED-backlit
  • Integrated Graphics Controller; Shared w/ system memory
  • 16 GB SSD + 16 GB SD Card Bundle

Ok so its not a super computer but it is decent!

PROS!!!

  • Full Touch Screen
  • Screen rotates for reading
  • Small size
  • Great battery life
  • DUAL SD Card Slots

CONS…

  • Small keyboard
  • Asus bloatware
  • Not linux friendly
  • Fingerprint magnate

Ok so let me explain the pros and cons… the T91 is a 8.9 inch tablet that can be used as either a netbook or a tablet.

Its small size and great battery life make it a perfect companion on long flights or car trips. The touch screen comes in handy for drawing or just playing games. Its also nice for reading e-books.

It comes paired with a 16gb SD card and 2 SD Card slots [1 free after the 16gb] Providing you with the ability of a maximum 80GB of storage space! [16gb ssd and 2x 32gb sd cards]

However it has a glossy black case that is a big fingerprint collector. I myself liked the matte black on the old eeepc but you cant win them all. The small keys take a little getting use to if you have been using a full size laptop but if you have been using a netbook you should be fine. It is also not very linux friendly due to the graphics chip but I prefer windows on a day to day basis so thats not a huge fault for me. The only major complaint I have is all the Asus Bloatware that comes bundled with it. While it is nice if you like yahoo widgets and such I just dont like it. However it is easily disabled and removed in about 30 seconds. It also ships with windows xp home. Why they did not include xp tablet I don’t know but I plan to upgrade this one anyway.

All in all this is a great little tablet for the money and hopefully I will get years of use out of it as I have my other Asus products

P.S. Sorry for the lack of updates life has taken its turns but hopefully the road is a bit straighter ahead and I will have a bit more time to do more on here!

A Look Back In The Archives [Old youtube videos I have done]

January 27th, 2009 | Category: Laptop,News,Tech Talk,Windows

The above video is from 2006 when we had a half assed clan here on themodshop. We were playing warrock. The main player is me and the other 2 are Dark and the very much unknown maddog. It was fun while it lasted.

Now this video is from when I lived back in Florida. I was out on a paintball field and decided to try and record it.

Here is one of my first tip/trick videos that I ever did. I know you cant see whats going on and sadly I lost the writeup that goes with it :(. Maybe I will re-do it some day.

This is my most popular video on youtube. With over 50,000 views im surprised that i have only gotten one noob saying its my fault there eeepc is messed up. Maybe because no one else was a noob and they all followed my instructions correct.

Well thats all there is for the look back into the archives. I know it was not much but hey. Next year we will do it again and have even more!

200th post – Oh how far we have come

January 03rd, 2009 | Category: Laptop,News

Oh how far we have come since 2006. I never was sure what to do with TMS when I first bought it. I have had Joomla PHP Nuke SMF and about every other thing you could imagine. It was even a clan site at one time. But on November 11th 2007 I decided to give wordpress a try. Since then we have made 199 posts [not including this one] and gotten a ton of views to the site. Currently we get around 5000 8000 unique views per month. Not to bad ;). I know it does not come close to competing with those bigger guys [engadget lifehacker gizmodo..ect..ect] but for being [mostly] ad free and ran by 2 people [well mostly just myself now days] it seems we are doing just fine. If you read the blog often you will notice that there has been 1 blog post per day for a while now. Well my hope is to keep that going and maybe even make it more than 1 post per day this year! I realize that it sometimes sucks but hey no one else is stepping up to help out :P. Anyway I hope you guys have enjoyed it so far and I hope to bring the modding goodness to you all for years to come!

Unetbootin – Any USB or Memory card as a bootable device!

December 06th, 2008 | Category: Gadgets,Laptop,linux,Tech Talk,UMPC

Ok this is a GREAT program. It allows you to turn any iso into a bootable image on a usb stick or sd card. So you can throw your linux iso on it and use that to install it on your eeepc 😉

There are some operating systems that you can select from and it will download it and put it all on your usb drive with a few clicks of your mouse. It is from what I can see flawless. I have used it to test out backtrack3 on my eeepc as well as centos. So if you are curious about testing something like this out what better time than the present?

Best part. Its free!!!
