Google censors torrent, download terms from suggestions and Instant

It's pretty common for Google to revise its suggestion blacklist, adding in new terms that the company feels shouldn't appear.

Long live the humble BBS, and the current state of file sharing

32 years ago today, the first electronic bulletin board system -- or BBS -- was born.

SizzledCore has an interesting article on RapidShare Happy Hours detector, a utility that notifies you when RapidShare Happy Hours are in effect. In case you're not familiar with Happy Hours, they're basically limited periods of time when any user can act like...
