256MB? Uh, no thanks.

HP launches Upline, offers unlimited storage for a fee (Download Squad)

Apr 7th 2008 8:53PM I'm not really trusting the new online storage venturers.

The market is already saturated with MANY online storage solutions. It seems as though these big corporations (whose primary interests resides in hardware/software/advertisement sales) are just jumping onto the bandwagon for a trial ride.

I will have to wait and see how well these companies do with online storaging before I consider them (1-2 years). Right now, I'd rather host and backup my personal files to companies whose primary interest surrounds online data storage.

DivX to shut down Stage6 video sharing service (Download Squad)

Feb 25th 2008 4:36PM Stage 6 was born prematurely. It had great offers in terms of hosting high quality videos, but not much going for it beyond that. Even the site's name is awkward, if not horrible (appending a number to a word?).

There was a study done that suggested that most people did not care so much about the quality when viewing a short clip. Stage 6 is slower for most of us because it is a larger, yet quality-high, format. Most people would also participate in YouTube as that is where all the attention and focus is at. The name has become synonymous with online video. You also had to install the DivX web player plugin to view the videos...

Knowing that most people have no clue what DivX is, they normally tend to see it as some malicious and suspicious program. They will think, "Why do I have to install this? YouTube let's me watch without installing." Again, ignorance is all but uncommon in the world of technology...

I enjoyed the site for music videos. It seemed the site was a festering breeding ground for anime fans and drama lovers. Websites were extended unofficially from that site to support movie piracy, and that is where it hurted Stage 6 the most. Oh boy, imagine how much bandwidth they lost from that! You know how much bandwidth means to them when they actively deleted pornographic material and pirated movies!

I will say, though, that I am very surprised Stage 6 lasted this long. I applaud them for trying something new. I hope to see another site adopt the player and become successful, but I feel it is still early to profit from it.

What a waste of space. Try writing something constructive and beneficial to your readers next time.

Let Microsoft spy on you, get a free copy of Vista Ultimate (Download Squad)

Dec 11th 2007 8:59PM
Due to the high volume of feedback Microsoft received, they are no longer offering "free" software.

I was beginning to wonder where the "free copy of Vista Ultimate" came in, as the sight suggested nothing of that sort from what I read. Too bad!
