One would think that if you already have a potential $1 billion dollar settlement hanging over your head, you'd leave well enough alone.
There's no reason to pirate any longer unless you're just a jerk who continues to insist that you're something special in this world and should get everything for free. You can buy songs for as cheap as .89 a copy from a variety of sources, Steam has regular sales for games that were once $50 and are now $8.00, you can rent a movie from a Red Box for a lousy buck. I routinely see Blu-Ray DVD sales for $8.99 now.
All the previous pirating excuses (and that's all they were) are no longer relevant.
Agreed. I don't see this as an issue at all. I just updated my entire music collection through MediaMonkey album art.Care to elaborate? I don't believe audio cds contain album art, so if you rip your own CD (or even before you do) WMP is going to go fetch the album art for you. It will get album art whether you feed it mp3s or a real cd (or a burned one). So unless I'm missing something I don't see how 'the man' is going to track you based on what album art you get.
A resurgence? No, because personal computers are not infected any more than they were last year. Many viruses come from simple web surfing. P2P is not responsible for that. Whether or not a new LimeWire is released, won't make people any more or any less stupid.omega00 said:
This, I worry, will fuel a resurgence of infected computers, which hurts everyone. Most of us who visit TechSpot are savvy enough to update our anti-virus software and don't randomly download stuff from shady websites. However, most computer users aren't like us. They probably have an outdated antivirus program, or no antivirus program at all.
There are quite a few answers to that.Kibaruk said:
Sadly... I have bought games but only multiplayers, the ones you can squish every cent (In my case chilean peso) out of fun (Which I do download a... mmm... "demo"), but I would never consider buying a single player game, for that I have minesweeper and freecell.
How would you consider buying a $50-$60 game where you play alone, have no multiplayer whatsoever, and end up trashing to play counter-strike 1.6?
