    Myka= Bit Torrent on your TV

    Myka is a nifty little device that comes in 80, 160 or 500GB units that connects directly to the Internet and your TV. The Bit Torrent protocol is built-in so it automagically downloads your videos or you can transfer videos from your desktop/laptop.

  • What.CD? Invites

    What.CD? Invites

    So I loved your comments in my original post so much, I decided to pick two of you for invites to the hot new torrent site. Unfortunately, What.CD? is really getting slammed (although not nearly as bad as Waffles is) and registration is currently closed to new users. When it opens again, I will do a post and send out an e-mail to those who I picked. No worries. Your invites are coming soon… Read More

  • So how are the OiNK replacements?

    So how are the OiNK replacements?

    I’ve gotten into both Waffles and What.CD? and while they don’t quite match OiNK on all levels, it’s still a great effort by both parties. I’ve found myself uploading and using What.CD? more than Waffles though, mostly due to the fact that Waffles is down and sucking. If it boiled down to making a choice right now, I’d definitely choose What.CD?. The funny thing… Read More

    Movie Exec Says Pre-Release Piracy Doesn't Matter

    I know since I wrote up that article on piracy I’ve been talking about it a little more than usual. Today though, I have a hot little story for you.

    Transmission 0.71 Released – Key Issues Fixed

    Mac OS X users have always gotten a bit of a shaft on decent Bit Torrent clients. There’s always Azureus, but it’s cluttered, slow, and a resource hog. And until the recent release of Bit Rocket, there wasn’t much else: except for Transmission. In the past, Transmission has been banned on almost every private Bit Torrent tracker on the net. Why’s that? Transmission used… Read More

    Use Rogers? Your Torrents Might Be Useless

    Since I’m not Canadian, I’m a little out of the loop on what Rogers has been up to. According to TorrentFreak, the ISP banned BitTorrent traffic due to excessive bandwidth consumption. Enter encryption and for the next year, everyone is safe. Now in an effort to curb encrypted Bit Torrent traffic, Rogers has started to throttle all encrypted transfers. That means your secure… Read More
