perhaps try defaults write ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.iWork09 RegistrationHasBeenSent true (e.g. in your user directory instead).

comment Headphones that look good on a desk next to a MacBook
update: I just noticed that the padding around the earphones has started wear and degrade. This hasn't impacted me yet. My set is a few years old at this point, but it still seems that the material is degrading faster than I would like.

comment How practical is an iPad for “reading” programming books?
I tried this out last night using my wife's iPad. It worked great, right up to the point where I fell asleep. iPad + developer documentation + bed = sleep FYI. If you are using an iPad to read while horizontal, definitely turn on the screen lock. Double-click the home button and then swipe from left to right on the bottom bar that slides up.

comment Is MacBook Pro warming during gaming normal?
you are right, you can leave the OS to handle it. In my case, when I would play WoW in max res with all settings turned up and in full-screen, the OS would let the graphics card get hot enough that the game would crash. If I turned up the fan a little bit before I started playing, I never had an issue with the game freezing due to the graphics card being too hot. YMMV obviously. If you notice freezes and the temp on your GC is high, then it might be time to seek out this util. Otherwise, you are probably fine.

If you want to increase your fan speed while you are playing games, you can use smcFanControl. I used this while playing WoW in full-screen mode to increase the fan speed and then set it back to default when I was done.

comment Headphones that look good on a desk next to a MacBook
@Jason Sundram I've broken a set. It was after several years of use and obviously after the warranty was up. It was my fault. I had the head phones buried in a backpack and I yanked them up by one ear and of course the other ear caught on something and I snapped it right off at the swivel hinge. I contacted Bose and I was able to replace them at a slight discount by shipping them my broken ones. So I am on pair number 2 in about 6 years. I am more careful when I travel with them now. I think they are relatively sturdy so long as you don't abuse them and you use the included case if you travel.
