iMac – Why I had it for 1 hour before returning it back to Apple



The scene was set, the day had come, my brand new iMac 2017 27″ iMac was being delivered by a guy called Regie (DPD Courier), who I must add was a legend, what a nice guy. If you want to check out the specs of this awesome iMac then head over here. (PS I did not pay that much)

So after an unpacking whilst doing a little review / vLog I was super excited, I had saved for months for this dream computer. I did actually need it, I am currently doing iOS Application Development and I have been using my MacBook Pro a cheeky little 13 Inches, and that was the issue, I needed more real estate. I also love my photography and now video editing, I just needed way more real estate than I currently have. I will say now that the MacBook Pro has been an absolute work horse for the past few years and I cannot fault it in any way shape or form.

So the iMac, powered on and ready to boot. PROBLEM!!

It didn’t boot up, infact the screen didn’t even turn on, no sound of any internals starting, nada, nothing!.

Check out the video below.

So whats next, well its getting returned tomorrow and the new one will arrive hopefully by Saturday. A good will gesture may also arrive, if not I will be contacting Apple again and bargaining for something special, or not, it may just be a bloody phone case or something.

A lover of all things tech, love all things that uses creative juices (not an innuendo) an avid blogger and part time vlogger, now stop reading and go check out some awesome posts on this site.


IPVanish VPN and why I think its the perfect choice to use with KODI



IPVanish VPN

IPVanish VPN

Not much time goes by when I get asked about a VPN or some question related to the best that subject. People try and plug and tell you a free VPN will work just as well as a paid one, in some circumstances it may work just as efficiently, but at some point you will be limited by data transfer, bandwidth etc and you will have to cough up you hard earned money to ensure you get the full service, unfortunatly  as much as we would love it, not everything in life is free :). Now while search for a good keyword for this post, even then I was seeing IPVanish “crack” or “nulled” which in essence is the same. So whats the deal with IPVanish VPN and why do I personally use it and rate it so much.

First of all you have to understand the primary task of a Virtual Private Network and what will it do for you that will make you want to spend some hard earned cash on it.

VPN is one of those tech terms and has gained a lot of traction in recent years as the internet has diversified and grown to even bigger levels.  However, the premise is actually quite simple, and there are some great use cases.

It stands for ‘virtual private networking’, which is a popular internet security method. The latter involves technologies that aim to add a layer of security to both private and public networks. These include broadband and internet hotspots.

A VPN (virtual private network) is therefore a secure and private solution within the wider internet itself that allows users – whether they are individuals, or part of an organisation, or business – to send and receive data while maintaining the secrecy of a private network.

That means you could use one to create a secure “tunnel” into your company network to enjoy access to private internal systems, but also means you could browse in complete privacy online and access content you might otherwise not be able to get such as Netflix or BBC iPlayer.

IPVanish VPN

Optimal, not total, privacy

All the traffic that passes through your VPN connection is secure and cannot, in theory, be intercepted by anyone else, making it the safest mainstream way to browse the web privately (but not always anonymously).

Just bear in mind though that VPN setups are only as secure as the weakest link in the entire chain. So if your device has already been compromised with malware already, using a VPN won’t save you from being spied upon.

If there’s one worry when it comes to using technology and the internet, it’s privacy. By using a VPN, you can, in theory, prevent your internet service provider (ISP) and government from seeing your internet history.

People also use VPN technology to “geo-spoof” their location. This results in users customising their location settings to be able to use overseas services. A great example of this is watching a TV programme or online product that’s only available in a specific country. You can also check out the wiki page here.

Don’t forget we have competitions running all of the time, if you would like to enter for free to win some awesome tech then head over to cssc0der competitions and don’t forget you’re daily entries, and very good luck if you do enter.

If you would like to jump on the crypto train too like me then check out some of the awesome posts over on our Crypto page and have a look around.

So why do I use IPVanish when it cost so much

Lets get things straight, and a myth surrounded by paid services. They are cheap! If you want full privacy and anonymous surfing then a few $ a month should be worth it. So lets check out the benefits of using a VPN.

End-to-End Encryption For All Your Devices

You can even watch a video I did a little while ago on how IPVanish VPN does NOT limit you’re speeds, in-fact in my video it actually makes them quicker, and if I am honest I did expect to actually see any change in speeds, especially not an increase when using it.

This is what to expect when you part with just a few dollars or pounds a month.

7-day money-back guarantee on all paid services.

Now I do personally use IPVanish VPN and if you would like to know more then just message me on Twitter  or on our Facebook page  and we will be more than happy to help you out or guide you, or try and find you some sneaky discount codes for an even lower monthly cost.

Last 2 KODI Videos coming this week, plus Mojo, Hate and Mojo Returning




So I have had a fantastic run with the whole KODI community, met some amazing people and been introduced “virtually” to more that I could have ever hoped for. There really are some awesome people and content creators out there. Now the reason why I have imminently stopped creating videos for the installs, tutorials and basically awesome content, well, it’s because I lost my mojo with it. I love and I mean really love helping users out and this will continue until I can’t type anymore, you may have noticed my spade hand comparisons, so being able to type is a difficulty in itself anyway.


But the creative side of me was suffering, sounds weird, but it isn’t hard to grab some screen capture and create audio on the top of that, smash in some gifs and emoji then there you have some content. My workflow for this was slick and could produce a video start to finish in under the hour.  That was the problem, I just wasn’t being creative enough, but was limited to the content that I was producing, it didn’t enable me to do anything different.

The Hate

I start recently becoming a bit more interactive with the videos, showing my face, yeah big deal, well it was as it just enables users to throw more hate, which is cool I can handle that, and probably in reality I didn’t actually receive that much hate. Plus why would you hate on someone who was providing content for you to inwardly digest and use, to enable you to watch some free content. Thats what I don’t get, and it continues daily, LeeTV , TopTutorials, DocSquiffy and of course the man who people love to hate Chris B

Now ALL of these creators give you the tools required to enable you to watch free stuff, stop the hate, we can all be keyboard warriors but its pretty sad don’t you think.

Mojo Returning

So where is our and I say our channel as without you there would be no me, where are we heading. Well 2018 I will find my niche again, it will not be related to KODI though, but it will be different so please stick with me over on our awesome channel . 

I will certainly be a lot more creative, lots of tech reviews and basically just pure awesome content. The competitions will continue to run, every few weeks, basically there will be a competitions running all the time till I run out of money to purchase more, so any clicks on adverts that interest you help me a tremendous amount.

My first Video

Yes the beast 1.4 !!! This is the reason why I started all my videos and effectively my channel, I saw the response from users and how it helped them, although initially it was just for my mate Marcus. Its gone crazy since then, as we are now 25K subs in, I appreciate every single one of you too.

2 Last Videos

I will only do these 2 last vids as a way to say thank you to some certain people and recommend other channels for you to follow, they will be build install so please check them out, you’ll love them I promise 🙂

Speak soon and much love.
