Microsoft Flight PC Game for Windows (For Free!!)

Microsoft is offering a glimpse into its longstanding flight simulator series for free to Windows users in the form of Microsoft Flight (released 2/28/2012). It is a great experience for any aspiring pilot or aeronautical enthusiast.

This simulator puts you over the skies of beautiful Hawaii, in one of two aeroplanes, the Icon A5 or the Boeing Stearman. There are a variety of missions, challenges and hidden "Aerocaches" that gives the game a lot of replay value, so head on over to the marketplace for the download.

It's in the Xbox Marketplace for some reason, but it IS a PC download...go figure. I have played a previous version of the simulator before and I have to say, it was very cool learning to take off and navigate the plane manually (as manual as you can get from a simulator).

Microsoft recommends you have Windows XP or later, a dual core processor, 2GB RAM, 10GB disk space, and DirectX 9.0c or later to run the game. See the link below.


Enjoy, and live free!

FREE short stack of Buttermilk Pancakes at iHop!

Tomorrow, Tuesday February 28th, is iHop's National Pancake Day Celebration, and they will be giving away a free short stack of Buttermilk Pancakes to guests.
iHop uses the proceeds to support charities in the communities in which it operates, and while the pancakes ARE free, they ask that you leave a donation to contribute to local Charities.
You can visit your nearest iHop (use the restaurant locator) between 7am and 10pm to get your grub on.

Also, FYI, you must dine in, i.e., you cannot go into iHop get your free pancakes and just leave, you have to eat them while in the restaurant; and it's limited to one serving (plate) per guest, so no seconds.


Enjoy, and live free!

Box offers 50GB FREE Cloud Storage for Android and iOS users

The makers of the cloud storage application Box are offering 50GB (which would usually cost you $19.99) to new registrants and users of the app. The Box app is available in both the Android Market and Apple App Store. If you are familiar with Dropbox, another cloud storage application, Box is alike in both form and functionality.

To get your 50GB all you have to do is download the App to your respective device, register with your email, and you'll receive a confirmation message.

Check your settings while in the app to ensure you have the 50GB of storage.

I registered with both my gmail AND hotmail, so I have a total of 100GB cloud storage available, albeit split between two different accounts, it's still useful. I use Dropbox to sync important files across my devices, but I never have enough space to do backups, so I will be using Box to fulfill that need.

This promotion is a limited time offer and ends March 23rd, 2012, so get it while you can.

Hope some of you find this useful, and as always,

Enjoy, and live free!
