  • AllofMP3 Owes RIAA $1.65 trillion

    According to the RIAA at least. In a lawsuit filed in a New York court, the RIAA has demanded that AllofMP3 owes it $1.65 trillion. The debt is the result of 11 million AllofMP3 downloads since Oct. 2006. If you do the math, that equates to $115,000 per track—it’s a good thing the RIAA doesn’t run its own download service. AllofMP3 has dismissed the charges on its website… Read More

  • The Usefulness of the Simple Command Line

    Sugarcodes is a new site that has extremely basic functionality but, like old-timer YubNub, is an awesome productivity tool for many users. It’s basically nothing more than a command line, where a search of just about any web service can be conducted using a simple dedicated command. “g books” does a search on Google for books. “yt U2″ does a search on YouTube for U2.
