Your Spotify May Be Hacked

Spotify Hacked - Spotiamb

You may be reading this post if you have spotted the “Spotiamb 0.2.1” appearing at random times on your Spotify app. It may be causing your music to randomly pause or play completely different songs than you originally intend. So to calm you down a little bit, you’re not the only one this is happening to. It happened to me as well and I want to explain a little about what it is.

What is Spotiamb 0.2.1?

It’s a very simple mod for Winamp that allows you to connect your Spotify account to it and play your music instead of using the official Spotify app on your desktop or phone. The mod isn’t harmless, but hackers have found a way to hack into users Spotify Premium accounts and play music without consent.

Spotify pays artists when users listen to their music. The ultimate goal of the hack is to rack up the plays for a lesser known artist so they can generate more revenue.

How to fix the issue?

The issue has a lot of users complaining as you can see in this thread on the Spotify forums: https://community.spotify.com/t5/forums/v3_1/forumtopicpage/board-id/001/thread-id/134965/page/1

The best thing to do and try to fix it is:

  1. Log out all devices
  2. Restrict all app permissions
  3. Change your password

Some users have tried this with success, but others are still finding the annoying Spotiamb show up in their list of connected devices.

Are you seeing the Spotiamb 0.2.1 in your Spotify account? Have you been able to fix it?

If you know me, then you would know that I like to cook a bit. I don’t do much cooking inside on the stove, I’m mostly an outside grill master. Or a master of the fish fryer. But when I do stay inside and cook something up, it’s usually pretty good.

I’d like to introduce to you the Copeland Cajun Jambalaya!

Copeland’s Lobster And Shrimp Boil Recipe

One of my favorite genres of food is seafood. I’m a big shrimp lover and there’s isn’t anything better than good ole boiled shrimp that’s ready to peel. This weekend I got my pot out, bought some shrimp and lobster and had a good ole southern seafood feast. Here’s my recipe for a southern shrimp and lobster boil:

lobster-in-sink

I use a 30 quart pot and fill it about 2/3 full of water depending on how much I’m cooking.

Ingredients
1/2 Cup Old Bay seasoning
2 tablespoon salt
2 tablespoon pepper
8-10 new red potatoes
1 large onion quartered
1 garlic clove
8-10 corn cobs
5 halved lemons
5 halved limes
5 pounds of raw shrimp (about 30-35 shrimp)

Add your potatoes, onions, garlic and cook about 8-10 minutes on high heat. Add your lobster and corn on the cob and cook another 8-10 minutes. Add your shrimp and cook about 4 or 5 minutes.

Your lobster should turn a bright reddish color and your shrimp will turn a light pink.

If you need to take one lobster out to see if it’s done, the claws should easily twist and pull off. You can also remove the tail and the green mushy stuff is part of the excrements from the liver. It should be bright green, not darkish green. The other red stuff lining the tail in the females should be a bright red/orangish color.

Drain your liquid and pour all contents on large platter. You can sprinkle some extra Old Bay seasoning on the platter if desired. Enjoy =)

My Latest EEG at Vanderbilt Medical Center

This would be my 3rd EEG in two years. We are still trying to get my simple partials under control.

Having an EEG is not a lot of fun. You are tied down with about 20 electrodes attached to your head. They are small metal wires that glue to your scalp.

During the 3-5 day process, you are monitored 24/7 with video and audio for the doctors to record a seizure. The first time, I had no seizures. The second and third time, I had multiple.

Once you’re done with your EEG, it takes about 3-5 days to get the marker and glue outta your hair.

1987 Boaterhome

1987 boaterhome - rv motorhome on water

Working for the RV and Camping industry, it’s very interesting when you see videos like this circulate around the Internet. This Boat/Motorhome combo isn’t anything new. It’s been around since 1987 and it’s called a Sport King Boaterhome. A very weird name for a product, but it does make sense.

A 1987 Ford 1 ton van on a custom chassis carrying a 28 foot V-hull boat. This looks like something straight out of the 80s and according to sources online, there were only 21 of the oddly shaped vehicles built.

Can you imagine the turn of heads while launching this thing at the ramp?

Acquisition Of FeaturedUsers.com By Izea

It was only August 2012 when I acquired the business FeaturedUsers.com – the first ad serving platform for Twitter profiles. Now, only three months later, it’s gone.

Today it is officially known that  social media marketing company Izea has acquired FeaturedUsers.com from myself in a cash+stock option agreement. We have been in negotiations on the deal for the past 30 days and it finally came to an end today. It has been a great pleasure working with CEO Ted Murphy and his team during the transfer. I hope to be able to stop by and see them face to face next time I’m in Orlando.

I honestly hate to see the site go. It had so much potential for more growth if the time and effort was put into it. Ted and his team should have no problem growing the site. Their portfolio already includes sites such as PayPerPost and SocialSpark, so Featured Users fits right in.
