Gnutella goes subscription?

Hmm…a PR release announcing a new P2P subscription service. The RazorPop P2P Music Subscription Service will offer unlimited music files for download at $9.95 a month and include copyright infringement insurance of $5,000 per subscriber. Since RazorPop distributes the free TrustyFiles P2P software which gives search and download from Kazaa, Gnutella and BitTorrent, this is very strange. Note that TrustyFiles does not have a brilliant reputation.  The music subscription launch is predicated upon execution of licensing agreements with music industry…

Boost or bust?

The mobile phone Antenna Booster. Fact or fiction? You decide. $12.99.  This the same “boost your signal by 300%” antenna that you see advertised on TV infomercials for $19.95 to $29.95. We hate TV infomercials. After seeing all the miracle car waxes and get rich quick products, many of us immediately laugh at their outrageous claims. Since this product was mobile phone related, we ordered some for testing a few months ago. Our expectation was to find it totally useless…
