How to clean a Macbook

In Life on May 31, 2010 at 6:07 pm

So like the many people out there that have a white macbook, I have been wondering of how to keep it that way i.e WHITE. I have stumbled upon something that may be of interest to you all.

The miracle substance is called JIF cream. It is suppose to be a harsh cleaning agent usually used on stoves etc, but trust me it isn’t that bad as long as it is wiped off quickly. It will loosen all dirt on the surface and leave it like new. It doesn’t really harm the actual plastic or anything like that. You can also use something like pine-o-clean or dettol to then wipe of the JIF residue. This will disinfect the computer and the keyboard so that your computer doesn’t only look clean; all the nasty bacteria are also killed.

I’m not too sure if this applies to those who had palm rest discoloration, but mine had started to catch a lot of dirt early on and once I started to keep it clean, the problem hasn’t be so prevalent. Still it is worth a try if your situation is quite bad.

Overall I think that it’s quite a discovery. Some MacBooks I’ve seen don’t look remotely like they were once white and light grey. I’m glad that mine still does.

Temporary Email Service

It’s been a while since I posted anything.

You know something; there are times when you go to some random site and they tell you to sign up for something. You give your email address to them oh so relunctantly and regret it later for they send you nothing but spam.

Your mail box fills with this stuff and you know what you got to get rid of the account. Get a new one and start life as you knew it all over again. Not good!

So what is the answer to the problem you ask. The answer is to use a temporary email address from one of the many providers out there. They all have their own system of dealing with mail.

Example is pookmail.com which lets you have an address for a day. Well not really. Anyone can see the mail, not just you but just pick a real random name and you should be fine, I suppose anyway.

some of the providers give you around five minutes to receive mail and then poof, its all gone, no worries, no spam, no restarting life. Great isn’t it.
