How did I get my money back from “official iphone unlock” (officialiphoneunlock.co.uk)

Last year I wrote about my experience with officialiphoneunlock and how I was able to get my money back. The “company” is clearly a scam but somehow it seems that they are still able to get away with it.

Since I wrote about this I got a lot of emails from scammed people asking me how did I do to get my money back. I will tell you how I did get my money back: I was lucky!

In fact “officialiphoneunlock.co.uk” didn’t give my money back and they didn’t even replay to my emails. It’s all explained in my previous post. The company that they used to charge people’s credit cards was the one that refund me. At that time “officialiphoneunlock.co.uk” used daypal.com and I got a call from them saying that they will refund the payment. I think that “officialiphoneunlock.co.uk” is not using daypal.com anymore.

How make Safari download PDF files instead of opening them in-page

When I find a link for a PDF file I don’t want Safari to open it in-page. Why not? What if I just want to download it to read it later? What if I have a list of PDF files that I just want to click one after another to start downloading them? What if the PDF file is too big and my internet connection is too slow, so I have a blank window waiting for the PDF to complete the download? What if I have too many opened tabs in Safari and I don’t want to kill my machine downloading a 100MB PDF file?

To force Safari to download your PDF files just open a terminal window and type this:

defaults write com.apple.Safari WebKitOmitPDFSupport -bool YES

If you want to change it back just type:

defaults write com.apple.Safari WebKitOmitPDFSupport -bool NO

You should restart Safari.

Tweetup Tokyo 2009

Tonight! It was the Tweetup Tokyo 2009 at Ebisu (Tokyo) near the Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography where an exposition of Keizo Kitajima is getting place. A nice and great event with the participation of Biz Stone (@biz) Co-founder of Twitter, Inc. and many people from the internet, blogging and technology community in Tokyo, like my friends Danny Choo (@dannychoo) and Steve Nagata (@stevenagata)^^;
They explained the growth of twitter in Japan, just as a phenomenon compared to other countries, and how it’s influencing the way Japanese interact in internet.

I love this kind of events specially for the great mix of people that you can find there. There are IT guys, artists, photographers, journalists, writers, hard beer drinkers, everything. It’s a mix but it’s creative.
