A few weeks ago, we took a look at TotalFinder, a collection of add-ons to the Mac OS X Finder that fixes some of its shortcomings, adds some welcome features, and in all, makes it a little more pleasant to use. We’ve got three free copies of TotalFinder to hand out, so read on to find out how you can win one!
It’s the start of the new year, we’re all recovering from our various new years’ eve obligations, and we’re sad we all have to go to work again tomorrow (well, except for me – I work from home). To extend the holiday spirit a for just a little longer, we’re giving away three copies of TotalFinder for the Mac. The copies are provided by BinaryAge, the company behind TotalFinder and several other Mac OS X tools.
So, what do you have to do to get your hands on a free copy? Simple, really: write a very short story, and post it in the comments. Because this is OSNews, and because I just thought of this contest like 56 seconds ago, it does have a few crazy twists. For your short story to be eligible, it needs to be about at least the following things:
- Unicorns (obviously)
- Fiona Apple
- Mac OS X
A few sentences is enough; this isn’t about length, it’s about absurdism. Make it as absurd and surreal as possible. Go all-out. It doesn’t matter. No limits, no bounds, no rules. You can troll, you can butter up, you can beat OSNews and its team senseless with words.
Unlike contests at a lot of other websites, this one is not limited to the US – wherever you live, you’re eligible. To set some sort of a cut-off point, your comment has to be posted within 24 hours from this contest going live (see date/time atop the teaser). Winners will be announced and re-posted on OSNews’ front page, and I’ll email the license and download location to your address (so be sure there’s a valid email address in your profile!).
Happy absurd writing!
OS X users, at least the iOS variety discovered an Easter Egg which allowed them to sleep through their alarms set on any device running iOS 4+. Apple claims this was a carefully planned ‘feature‘ and not a ‘bug‘. Seems Steve has been taking lessons from Bill!
Just wanted to ask, would Fiona Apple be able to run TotalFinder/Finder while riding a Unicorn and covered in Glitter, if she doesn’t have a copy of Mac OS X?
One day while playing with the Unicorns and discovering the wonders of Total Finder and the great things it does to Finder, it started to rain glitter from the sky. Much to our amazement, the glitter was bought on by the presence of Fiona Apple. In my shock, I awoke from my dream only to find out it wasn’t real and was all created on a Mac, running OS X of course!
I’m just happy that it’s OS X software (and useful)!
Maybe we can get a copy of Photoshop for everyone next time 😉
