My friend is a hardcore mac user, as well as an expert. He has programs such as Adobe photoshop cut down to just the program (no tutorials, ect.) and gets them for next to nothing! He gives them away to his friends.

So I have to questions:
1. I sit even Legal?!?!
2.Is it safe?

1. The giving them to his friends part at least.
2. Safe as in it won't harm your system. It might produce some weird results with the software itself.

If you want to cut down on app size, use an app reducer like Xslimmer. That is very safe and legal.

It doesn't sound legal at all, no. Those programs aren't for sale for "next to nothing."

I judge you when you use poor grammar.

To have unlimited clearing space with Xslimmer, you need to have the version 1.5.1 found at download.com. Download that version (not the latest version). Once that is installed open up terminal and put in the code "defaults write com.latenitesoft.xslimmer demoBytesLeft 85899345920" without the parenthesis and paste it into terminal and hit enter. This technically is still the demo but instead of it being able to slim only 15mb it can now slim 8tb.

NOTE: Moved to more appropriate forum.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
