iOS 6.1.3 Update

I am getting into some good stuff of the Forever Affiliate program and need to get back to it, but wanted to let you know there is an iOS 6.1.3 update available and wanted to give you the dealio. 

The main thing that this update does is fix a vulnerability where someone that knows how, could circumvent your lock code to gain access to your phone if it is in their possession.  This is done by utilizing the emergency call feature and doing a few other things that I won't mention on here.  Additionally, there are improvements to Apple Maps Japan.  There are no other add-ons, features or fixes.  There are however, breaks. 

The big thing that this update does is remove the ability to jailbreak your phone and if it is already jailbroken, it won't be any longer.  If you do update to 6.1.3, there is currently no way to go back to being jailbroken.  In other words, if you have any intention of jailbreaking your iOS 6 device at any point in the near future or enjoy your jailbroken iOS 6 device, do not update!

This has been a public service announcement from someone that feels Apple is doing a huge public DISservice to themselves and the popularity of their devices by locking things back down.  The evasi0n jailbreak for iOS 6 has been installed on over 18.2 million new devices since the release last month.  That was only 43 days ago, yes 18.2 million.  

So, there is obviously a huge demand for having the ability to customize and tweak your device the way you want to and by locking things back down and not embracing the hobbyist/geek community, I think they will lose out on a portion of that community to Android.  This is coming from someone that recently purchased a very tiny piece of Apple stock through options (much cheaper way to try and capture some gain on the stock from these levels) that wants to see the company do well and wants to see sales increase and innovation thrive.

Paddy Not Patty

Happy early St Paddy's day!  Yes PADDY.  Who knew?  Not me, definitely not George Takei, but lots of his 3 million+ Facebook fans did and they made sure he was aware when he had it incorrect.  

You would think that since it is Patrick, Patty makes sense, but as you're probably aware Patty is typically a female name and because of that, it is some what of an insult.  

It's Paddy, not Patty. Ever.
Saint Patrick’s Day? Grand.
Paddy’s Day? Sure, dead-on.
St. Pat’s? Aye, if ye must.
St. Patty? No, ye goat!
So as you get your weekend festivities on, don't be a goat!  Post with confidence on all the social media outlets, knowing when you say Paddy you won't be offending any Leprechauns!  Enjoy!

Secret Scrolls

I've mentioned a bunch o' times I'm a big fan of The Secret and I also subscribe to the Secret Scrolls where they will email you something inspirational/insightful about once a week free of charge.  I'm also a fan of their Facebook page where they post about every other day.   Thought I'd share this one I just read in my email, enjoy!

A Secret Scrolls message from Rhonda Byrne
Creator of The Secret

From The Secret Daily Teachings
When a big change occurs in your life it forces you to change direction. Sometimes the new path may not be easy, but you can be absolutely certain that there is magnificence for you on the new path. You can be absolutely certain that the new path contains things that you could not have experienced otherwise.

When we look back at a negative event that occurred in the past, we often see how in fact it transformed our life. We see how that event directed us toward a life that we would not change for anything.
May the joy be with you,

Catch-Up: Oz and Concours d'Elegance Amelia Island

Thought I'd stop by the blog and say heyyyyyyy!

I've been busy lately with that new Forever Affiliate marketing program that I mentioned a week or two ago.  So if I'm kinda quiet here, that is why.  It really is an awesome program with the latest and greatest info on how to setup your own affiliate sites and generate sales and I'm about half way through.

It includes some theory/background info, but I'd say it's 90% hands on with step by step videos on exactly what to do to create your own successful affiliate sites.  It has helped me immensely so far.  I was on the right track with one site that I setup, but I was completely going about things the wrong way.  It is definitely worth checking out if you're at all interested in affiliate/internet marketing.  If you have any questions, let me know!

This past weekend we wanted to pack in some activities cause we knew I'd be stuck home this coming weekend due to being on-call.

On Saturday, we saw the new Oz movie, it was decent, not a must see in the theater, but good.  I especially liked that the flying monkeys were still scary this time around.  Anyone who grew up watching the original Oz knows what I'm talking about.  Many a child was tormented by nightmares of the wicked witch and her flying monkey army back in the day! 

On Sunday, the weather was perfect in the low to mid 70s, so we decided to do something we've been wanting to do for a few years and attended the annual Concours d'Elegance on Amelia Island.  It is always touted as one of the best vintage/rare/expensive vehicle showcases in the world and it did not disappoint.

I'd say my favorites were the McLaren's and Lamborghini's.  They had everything from immaculate vintage vehicles from the early 1900s, to concept vehicles from over the years, to Ferraris to vintage racing vehicles to the completely strange.  Here is a link to several that were up for auction that sold for up to 4.5 million!  :-o  A few highlight pictures are below. 

Hope everyone out there had a great weekend and hope you're enjoying the additional hour of daylight and warmer temps as well!  The first day of spring is just around the corner, March 20th, woot!

Lamborghini Countach, my favorite when I was a little kid!

Buddy and Sage Win Cutest Pets of February!

The wifey entered a picture of two of our kitties, Buddy and Sage, into a cutest pet contest on our Vet's Facebook page and they won!  We're definitely biased, but come on, how cute is this picture?  They're best friends.  We haven't seen them do this again, so we're glad we caught it.  Happy Friday!

I take back what I said earlier about them not snuggling since then, I just caught these shots today.  Such good boys, at least to each other, not so much towards Monkey.

Make $300 to $3,000 in Passive Income

That is the claim of a new Affiliate Marketing system by Andrew Hansen.  He has been successfully doing Affiliate Marketing online for over 7 years and his new program takes into account all of the new Google algorithm changes that took place over the last year.  I purchased the program myself and did a more detailed post on my niche site here.  If you want to go right to the program details, you can click here.

If you do end up checking out the program, drop me a comment below or email to chris "@" and we can go through the program together and help each other out along the way!  I plan to do posts on my site, detailing my progress along the way, so head on over there and subscribe if you want to follow along as well.  

SpaceX Dragon Live Friday Launch

SpaceX is launching their Dragon cargo rocket up to the International Space station today at 10:10am Eastern time!  I'm pretty excited about that, because we missed the last one and since I will be working from home tomorrow and the weather looks good for launch, I'm hoping to have a birds eye view here at the beach.

Unfortunately, all I got to see was the smoke trail.  Bummer.  

For anyone interested in watching live, check out the live feed below. Also, here is a link to the SpaceX Livestream site.  Enjoy!
