Apple Sept 2014 Keynote

I was not that impressed with the iPhone 6 / 6 Plus or the other announcements from yesterday’s keynote. There was no release date of Yosemite, the next version of Mac OS X. No sapphire screen for the iPhone 6 which may have been a good thing due to it being more brittle than harden glass.

Apple Pay is the equivalent of contactless cards that we have here in the UK and many other countries. Perhaps the US does not have this convenient method of payment. I do not even have to take my card out of my wallet, I just tap on the card reader.

The Apple Watch (interesting not iWatch) was the most exciting product. Probably the best smartwatch announced so far, but I do wonder what the battery life will be like.

However, despite all this I will be buying the iPhone 6 (not the Plus) as I’m using the iPhone 5 on a daily basis, so it will be worthy upgrade for myself. Pre-ordering opens this Friday!


Completly Uninstall and Remove Bonjour Service and Files (mDNSResponder.exe, mdnsNSP.dll) for Windows

Bonjour LogoBonjour, also known as zero-configuration networking, enables automatic discovery of computers, devices, and services on IP networks. Bonjour uses industry standard IP protocols to allow devices to automatically discover each other without the need to enter IP addresses or configure DNS servers.

This service starts automatically and runs a process named mDNSResponder.exe which cannot be killed by Windows Task Manager. If you do not want Bonjour to be on your computer and want to uninstall it, sometimes you can’t find any uninstaller for it!

Here’s how to safely uninstall and remove the Bonjour service and files (mDNSResponder.exe and mdnsNSP.dll). Just follow the few simple steps below to remove Bonjour from your computer.

Update 2013/12/31: Newer versions of Bonjour can just be uninstalled from “Programs and Features” (Add/remove programs). However, each time you update iTunes you have to remove it again.
