Interview: aXXo, The Most Popular DVD Ripper on BitTorrent

Most of the time it is impossible to track down the source of DVDrips, especially with people from “the scene“. But aXXo is not a member of the scene, and although was not very talkative either, he was at least willing to answer a few questions.

TorrentFreak: What motivates you to share these movies?

aXXo: Not everyone can afford $8.50, or whatever it cost’s these days, to see movies.

TorrentFreak: Don’t you think that ripping and uploading these (copyrighted) movies is wrong?

aXXo: The movie industry loses only 1% of its yearly profits, in a multi-BILLION dollar industry. I think the people who can’t afford movies deserve to be entertained just like more privileged people.

Oh god! All those “less privileged” people who can’t afford movies — after spending money on a PC and a monthly broadband connection!

And pigs are blue and have wings!


The Secret: Law Of (Mal-)Attraction

Jews ‘partly responsible’ for their troubles: Churchill

“For it may be that, unwittingly, they are inviting persecution — that they have been partly responsible for the antagonism from which they suffer.”

So, you go about your business, happy in the world — or at the very least staying out of trouble and trying not to starve to death — and some son of a bitch decides he’s going to kill you. To make himself feel better. Because he doesn’t like your looks. Because he is envious. Because what the fuck.

See? It’s all your fault. For being alive.

So stop that. Right now.

Sony’s new PMP could be better than the Nano

Personally, this is the first time I’m actually tempted by a Sony audio player; the A800 is still relatively thin, has that gorgeous colour screen and is quite handsome in a solid-looking way.

Also, Japan’s AV Watch website has a full review with lots of pictures. In Japanese.

While I have your attention, I’d like to renounce the “iPod Nano Killer” headline in the prior post linked to below. The key to the iPod Nano is not simply its size, it’s the iTunes software and experience. Now, if Sony could develop an easy way for people to migrate their music and videos from iTunes to Sony’s software, as well as come up with a good music store, they could cut themselves a good slice of market share with this. It’s not impossible. Sandisk has been doing very well with their Sansa e200-series of players.

I Thought So: Samsung Is Gonna Break My Heart!

Samsung Q2 secrets and rumors

2. Price. Way back in June 2006, a German news site announced that “the Model Q2 from Samsung” would be priced at under $1000. However, Corrupted Mind (another forum member at Origami Project) has been told that it will actually be tagged above the Q1P and on par with the Q1-SSD. In other words, much higher than anyone would like.

The Q1-SSD is not one of the three for sale in the US. It has to be imported via a specialty retailer such as Dynamism — and look at that price: US$2099.00!

Sorry, Samsung, but at that price, I say No! No! No!

I really want to see these things hit the US$700 mark. And not as a stripped-down, hardly-good-for-nothing version (that’d turn it basically into a Nokia 770!).

First Apple computer

This is the picture of first apple computer.

Now imagine working for IBM. You are a Clean-Cut Corporate Suit selling large, expensive machinery to large, paper-drowning corporations in the mid-1970s.

You would have laughed at this.

You would have laughed if you’d seen this, its progenitor, too:

Also makes you wonder why that thing is called a Slingbox, huh?

Man shows trippy effects of looking in a mirror while using LSD

It seems the creator of this video clip tried to mimic the experience of what it is like to look in a mirror while tripping on LSD. The visuals and sound distortions do a great job of creating a freaky atmosphere. According to some of the comments, it’s as close as one can get to experiencing and understanding the effects of LSD without doing it yourself. Check it out and enjoy your simulated trip!

And this kind of shit is fun to you people? Are you all fucking retarded?

S.O.S.! This Is Driving Me Mad!

March 11, 2007

I’m having all sorts of broadband slowness problems. And it is driving me mad!

I have to keep Avast! Anti-Virus running because of a nasty surprise this PC had a few months back: it was hihjacked into a spambot! Oh, it took days to cleanse this sucker. I had to Google all over the place for information on how to retake this machine.

I wonder if that’s slowing this machine down, because everything now transmitted from the net is being checked first. This machine has a 1.8GHz Celeron. But it’s slower than the 900MHz Celeron-based Samsung Q1 I was using yesterday!

On the other hand, I open Firefox’s Error Console and it’s filled and filled and filled with errors. None of which I can possibly understand. Shit such as:

Warning: Unknown property ‘_width’. Declaration dropped.

Anyone know what all this means and any possible solution?


How About A Palm PDA With WiiOS? Or A NintenPalm? Palmtendo?

March 11, 2007

Why I Think Mario Would Be Super For Palm

What the heck happened? Nintendo realized that the process of gaming had not changed in years…it was stuck in a paradigm defined by the technical limitations of a decade ago, and simply added more power (processing, graphics). No one bothered to notice that today’s technology provided a visionary company with the means to completely re-visit the way that people could use these games, and make them simpler and more fun to use. Does that remind anyone of the traditional ‘Zen of Palm’?

So, what does all this have to do with Palm? Palm has lost its Zen.

He goes on to mention the Wii name. I don’t think many people understand “Wii” = “Whee”! They know that Nintendo is Japanese and figure the name is somehow Nihongo. It’s not. It’s just very, very clever!
