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!

Virtualize Servers – Intro

June 12th, 2009 | Category: linux,Microsoft,Pc Mods,Tech Talk,Windows

Ok so here is the deal. A while back I bought those servers if you recall and now I am going to use one of them! For a few months now I have had this old p4 computer sitting next to my desk running a home webserver along with my pbx phone system for my work line. Well it idles most of the time and really is not that powerful and just uses up power and space and does not get much use. So I am going to start testing a couple different virtualization applications and see what one is the best solution for what I am going to be doing. The ones I intend to test as of right now are XenServer and vmware ESXi.

The Hardware!

Dual Processor AMD Athlon 2GHz

3gb ram

2x80GB Drives

1x250GB Drive

2u Rackmount form factor

The Plan

Run my home webserver phone pbx and a few other applications within multiple operating systems within the single server. This will allow me to run both windows and linux along side each other while still having decent performance for what ever applications I may need to run.

Long story short look for my upcoming venture into the virtual server world as I try and get this server to function on a task that it was not intended to perform

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!

Test webserver on your home pc in 5min

January 16th, 2009 | Category: Microsoft,Tech Talk,Windows

Ok so lets say you are making a new script and you want to be able to test it in real time not upload it and go through all that crap. Well rather than do all the work by hand do what I did and go get wampserver. This will install Apache PHP and MySql on your windows xp or windows vista pc and automate everything for you. It even installs phpmyadmin. Now keep in mind I would not suggesting using this to host your web site full time but its great for when you make something in dreamweaver or what ever your favorite editor is and then you can just save it to the www directory and open localhost in your browser and poof there you have it!

New Windows Commercial Just As lame As First One.

September 13th, 2008 | Category: Microsoft,Tech Talk,Windows

This is just sad. Really Microsoft making Bill Gates do a stupid Dance is not funny. If you could please make a commercial that had some meaning in it and showed progress instead of retarded-ness then maybe people would buy your products without feeling like they are going to be hung out to dry. Here is a link to Windows Commercial 2

and the first one is Here
