LimeWire’s problem is identical to that of Napster and other file-sharing services that have tried to go legit — its core audience doesn’t care about infringing on copyrights and is far more likely to adopt bittorrent, or some other file-sharing software, than start paying for downloads.
“I think as more and more people find these sites, they will see a need for government regulation,” Lee says.

If I were to ask you to describe the most pleasant sound you could possibly hear after you got out of the shower first thing in the morning, I’m pretty sure that we’d all agree that it would be the high-pitched whine of a vacuum cleaner motor, right? Well what if I told you that you could have this sound directly against your ear for up to five minutes? I know! It’s like a dream come true!
Samsung hasn’t said exactly when the Premium Suite update is coming, but we’ll put it to the test once it arrives. Stay tuned.
The expensive option, undergrounding of the lines, might avoid 495 deaths over the 35 years but might cost $248 billion. To an economist, how much was worth spending would depend on how many lives were seen as otherwise threatened over the 35 years.
But I can take some comfort in the fact that right now, Schultz’s site isn’t that effective at truly jamming my signal. It’s actually too random. It doesn’t linger on sites very long, nor does it revisit them. In other words, it doesn’t really look human, and smart-enough tracking algorithms likely know that.
I’d like to say that I actually heard the rocket boosters fire, but my office was quiet. But I have to tell you, I felt a wave of acrophobia wash over me like a ocean of cement.
Kraft and Hall watched sales numbers trickle in for the next couple of months, and by May, realized Here One was a flop. They’d originally planned to make and sell a few hundred thousand models, but only sold 25,000. Another 15,000 sit in a warehouse somewhere. Even with all the people who love Here One, those sales numbers turned Doppler from hot-shit startup to virtual impossibility. Here One was Doppler’s only real chance, and they’d missed it.
It’s a challenge and an opportunity, and every year the bar is raised. This may be the year that geeky cred plays a big part in pushing the envelope.
WHAT IT MEANS: Doyle’s “The Greek Interpreter” revealed Holmes had French heritage.

“The issue here is that these things are coming out every day,” said Perrin. “Who understands the … coding and all these kinds of things. How can you convey that to consumers so they understand?”

What was expected to be a session of celebration after the ousting of Jean-Marie Messier turned into a bloodbath after Vivendi’s debt was slashed to high-risk “junk bond” status and a French newspaper trumpeted new accounting revelations.
Nintendo made waves this year with the Switch, one of our favorite gadgets of 2017. But to make a killer console, the company had to kill some of its darlings. MiiVerse, Nintendo’s oddly charming social network where fans shared their best (and worst) drawings, became the victim and closed its doors in November.
In addition, he argued, a penalty for damaging the whole industry should be added to the defendants’ bill: The Pirate Bay undermines music CD profits, because downloading is simpler than running out to the record store. The torrent site also undermines lawful online sales channels, and make it more difficult to develop new services, he claimed. Finally, he argued that rights holders that had not released their material online should enjoy higher compensation, since pre-release piracy undermines future online sales.
Such is the impression one might get talking to experts who specialize in unloading assets of defunct Net firms. While the upswing in dot-com burnouts has provided plenty of business for corporate liquidation outfits, they’re finding that much of the bargain merchandise has a very short shelf life.

Yahoo launched AppSpot in conjunction with a new application search section of its website, Yahoo! App Search. App searches through a fully-featured web browser deliver QR codes along with their results. Then, using AppSpot, you can scan the code on your screen to go straight to the App Store. This feature seems a bit redundant, though — if you have to use your phone anyway, wouldn’t it be faster to do the search straight from AppSpot?
This was no more apparent than when Long Beach, California’s KNAC 105.5 Rock hit the skids in 1995, shutting down its broadcast to heavy metal fans who were left waiting. But the Internet offered the station a chance to get back on the air – with fewer restrictions and a better opportunity to draw fans from a worldwide market.
