Do you like books but hate paying for it? I found a loophole with Amazon Kindle that allows you to read books for FREE. Amazon Kindle has a 7-day return policy:
Books you purchase from the Kindle Store are eligible for return and refund if we receive your request within 7 days of the date of purchase. Once a refund is issued, you will no longer have access to the book.
To request a refund and return, visit the Manage Your Kindle page. Click the Actions tab for the title you'd like to return, and select "Return for refund".
That means that you basically buy a book through the Amazon website and then send it to your Kindle device or App. After reading the book, request the refund. Make sure that the book is returned within 7 days or you can't return it.

Edit: All the links to the latest version of Norton Internet Security (NIS), Norton AntiVirus (NAV), and Norton 360 Standard (N360s) and Norton 360 Premier (N360P) are forward compatible so that the links would download the latest version whenever you visit and I no need to update the links every year.
You may not realize it but starting from 2006, Symantec has allowed all users with a valid subscription of their Norton software to make a FREE upgrade to the latest version (Version 2012 as of the publishing of this post. Just go to http://www.norton.com/nuc to check if you qualify!
Alternatively, you can download the direct installer from these URLS. Be sure to download the latest version to the product you already have! For example, Norton Internet Security users cannot upgrade to Norton AntiVirus and vice versa. Also for Norton 360 make sure you check if you have standard or premier (25 GB of online storage) and download the file accordingly!
Unless the previous version is glitching, Symantec recommends an over the top installation. However, I prefer to use the Norton removal tool first (http://www.norton.com/nrt).
- Download the required files to upgrade
- Download Norton removal tool from http://www.norton.com/nrt
- Back up identity safe if you are using it (Norton AntiVirus doesn't have identity safe so they need not to worry).
- Disconnect your internet by turning off the router or turning off the wifi switch or removing the cable.
- Uninstall the Symantec product through the conventional way (Through add/remove)
- Run the Norton removal tool you downloaded earlier.
- Go to %programdata% and delete the "Norton" and "NortonInstaller." DON'T delete any other files other than those two.
- Install the product from the installation file you downloaded in step 1.
- Restore identity safe

A few days ago, I went to see the Tangled movie and its pretty good. Its on par with the other Disney classics. The songs are quite catchy and easy to sing/remember. I can't get the song "When will my Life Begin" out of my head
I also enjoy the song "I see the Light"
Also after I came back from the cinema, where I saw the movie in 3d Woo!
I found that a person have uploaded the movie to YouTube!
I have compiled the uploads into a "play list" and have inserted some other HQ Tangled scenes I found from other uploader into the playlist where apprioriate. Enjoy!
Edit: For some strange reason, YouTube is not embedding the playlist properly and exluding some of the other HQ clips I placed into the playlist. http://www.youtube.com/view_play_list?p=EA72F48E4BEBF406
Edit: Disney have deleted some parts of the movie
and the users have deleted the rest
