iTunesMonitor 2.5 (Update)

I've recently updated iTunesMonitor to 2.5 status you can find the original description here (The download link was updated there as well).

The main difference is it now respects Windows 7's UAC controls so no more crashing due to permission issues. Keep in mind you will need .NET framework 4 to run this now.

Among other nice features 2.5 iTunesMonitor finally gives iTunes the ability to work with your media keys even when iTunes does not have focus for those die hard iTunes users.

The system is "install free" meaning as long as you have iTunes installed detection and launching is automatic.

On the streets of G20

G20 started getting dangerously close to my house so I decided I should see if there was any immediate danger. Well I’m not going to caption but here’s what it looks like on the streets.

As tensions build the police fire rubber bullets into the crowd you can spot a rubber bullet near the end of this video.

After firing the rubber bullets the crowd gets rowdy and pushes back.


And as soon as the cops back off the Hooligans camouflaged into the rest of the crowd set fire to yet another police cruiser.

You can all make up your own captions about the event it should be somewhat self explanatory.
I’ll make it clear that I don’t support the actions of the violent protesters the peaceful ones were around but they’ve been largely overshadowed by the few violent ones.
