We did talk about the highly controversial Popcorn Time yesterday, and it seems that this Netflix-style movie streaming app which caters for pirated films has been removed from the file sharing site that hosts it. Basically, one can no longer download Popcorn Time freely as they would have been able to do so yesterday, despite the official Popcorn Time website remaining online. However, should you make an attempt to look for the now missing download link, you will be greeted by the message “Download links are down for a bit. We’ll be right back! Careful when downloading from other sources, as we have the only official ones.”
Ales Kocjancic is the founder of Live Systems, a real-time optimization platform. His MacBook Pro was acting up, throwing its equivalent of the “blue screen of death” in Kocjancic’s face. He spent countless hours on forums to find a fix but in the end he struck out. Since he didn’t have AppleCare, Kocjancic felt that every trick in the book must be tried before inevitably ending up at an Apple Store to buy a new one. He did what most of us won’t do, opened up the MacBook Pro, unscrewed the logic board and cooked it in an oven at 340 degrees Fahrenheit for seven minutes.
