httpTorrents offers direct downloads of popular torrents (Download Squad)

Nov 16th 2009 11:29AM Well, there is a solution without central storage. The httpTorrents site merely passes through the torrent data onto your PC, doing all of the work of the torrent client, and your PC essentially just becomes a remote storage location for httpTorrents. Pass-through.

Apple breaks Atom Hackintoshes with upcoming OS X 10.6.2 update (Download Squad)

Nov 2nd 2009 12:54PM Corporate disobedience is a valid response to corporate greed.

HTC Touch HD2 gets spec'd, rumored for T-Mobile UK (Engadget)

Oct 5th 2009 7:43AM It needs a stylus. Capacitive is a failure for small form factors. Swiping is fine for gross movements but you can't edit a 3x3 icon with your finger, unless you're six inches tall.

Other than that, great phone specs and none of that Android ridiculousness. At least when I get an incoming call on a WinMo, it'll actually switch to the call right away instead of thinking about it.

Lifehacker starts Gmail Ads bloodbath (Download Squad)

Aug 6th 2009 8:59AM @jr: with the sig technique, you lean on their processing cycles rather than your own. A true hack, worthy of alt.hacks circa 1994

Avast responds to Symantec's jaded criticisms of free antivirus (Download Squad)

Aug 5th 2009 3:37PM Oh, we're doing the "product A caught viruses product B didn't" thing again?

NOD32 catches viruses that Avira, AVG, and Avast miss. And vice-versa. Got it?

Overstock kills affiliate programs in 4 states, just like Amazon (Download Squad)

Jul 2nd 2009 10:42AM All true. And still, I would avoid paying those taxes regardless of what the Supreme Court says. I don't like what the gov't -- local, state, and federal -- is doing and my say is somehow being diluted by corp lobbyists, so I'll resort to corporate disobedience. And good luck fighting that.

Songbird 1.2 released, now with iPod sync (sort of) (Download Squad)

Jun 22nd 2009 8:28AM It doesn't pick up playcounts, or lastplayed from iPods. It won't sync ratings. But, it does play the music and parse the ID3s.
