How to get Keynote, Pages and Numbers for free in older Macs

On October 2013 Apple made the whole Mac OS X free and gave away the cool apps Keynote, Pages and Numbers for free with the OS. Anyone who purchased a Mac after October 1st 2013 has an option to get this deal. But, sadly the buyers before October 1st were left out. They still have to pay to get it from app store. If you are one among them, worry not. I am going to share the trick to get absolutely free on your old Mac OS X machine. All you have to do is download the Trial version of iWork suite for free from any 3rd party provider. Install it and then, you'll be shown and option to upgrade it to full version for free in your App Store. Follow the simple steps to do this : 

1. Download the iWork '09 Trial (dmg file) from Softpedia link . Click Download and click External Mirror 1 . You have to download this from softpedia because Apple doesn't support Trial downloads of Apps any longer. 

2. Go to your System Preferences -> Security & Privacy -> General -> Change Allow apps downloaded from  to Anywhere



3. When the download is complete double click the dmg file and install the iWork '09 Trial. 


4. Once the installation is finished wait for a few seconds and open your App Store in Mac and click the Updates section. Now you can see that 3 new updates for Pages, Keynote and Numbers appear on the list. Update them and you can enjoy all 3 incredible apps free for life.

ICFAI Sikkim Distance MBA Review From My Experience

After a long research I joined for the ICFAI distance MBA program in 2012. Now I've completed 2 semesters ( as of 2013 ). I wanted to write this review so that people who are looking for a good MBA program can get a hand-on review about the distance MBA offered by the ICFAI Sikkim. I've been through all the cycles of this program and this review might help you make the right choice about the program.

Building Autonomous Drone with Raspberry Pi and APM 2.8

I am a total newbie to hardware and was pushing my limits to see how far I can reach on with hardware projects (which sparked my interest lately). I have set out on a very ambitions mission to control a drone from raspberry pi.I began the research for this around 2 months ago and had brought a raspberry pi, drone body kit and apm flight controller. The key difference of this project from common drone projects is that I'm trying to avoid the use of and RC and instead use the raspberry pi to control it. 


Hardware Installation Setup:
I am using APM 2.8 and Mission Planner.I am using RPi 3 to control the APM 2.8 via Telem port of APMI am planning to power the apm via the battery to ESC (Electronic Speed Controllers)
