    Now, Futuremark has uncovered a very dangerous anti-piracy system Starforce is now using.

This driver runs regardless of whether the game runs;

    A LONG READ,An inside look at Windows Vista

    Set to ship at the end of the year, Windows Vista will be Microsoft's first major operating system release since it introduced Windows XP in 2001.

    The new OS is designed to offer a shiny new user interface, better security, improved data organization and near-instantaneous search. It will be a major gaming platform release because it includes DirectX 10, an upgraded and rebuilt collection of application programming interfaces (APIs) that, according to Microsoft, will offer six to eight times the graphics performance of DirectX 9.0. We're opening our series of Windows Vista features with a look at the most striking feature of Vista, the 3D desktop and the new Aero interface.

    RIAA does not have godlike legal powers

    Judge waggles his wig

    By Nick Farrell: Tuesday 21 March 2006, 07:53
    A ROBED but not wigged one has told legal eagles working for the Recording Industry Association that the outfit does not have the supreme legal powers that it thinks it has.

    RIAA lawyers had demanded full access to Tanya Andersen’s computer so that it could prove that she had downloaded files. Anderson claims that she has not downloaded files in her life and has counter-sued the RIAA with a racketeering charge.

    She opposed giving the RIAA unlimited access to her computer because she felt that was a violation of her privacy, because it would allow the outfit to look at files that have nothing to do with the case.

    Much to the RIAA’s surprise judge Donald Ashmanskas agreed with her. He told her to get an independent forensics expert and get the RIAA to foot the bill.

    It seems the courts are getting fed up with the recording industry’s guilty until innocent approach.

    When the RIAA first made its accusation against Anderson, she claims they refused to accept that there was anyway that they could be wrong about her downloading music. All they told her was they wanted a few thousand dollars to go away.

    Apple lashes out at French DRM legislation

    3/22/2006 10:10:48 AM, by Eric Bangeman

    Apple responded angrily to a bill passed yesterday by the National Assembly, the lower house of the French parliament. If approved by the French Senate, the legislation would require all companies selling DRMed music in the country to open up their proprietary formats for licensing by other companies. The intent is to ensure that consumers can play songs purchased from any online music service on their digital music player of choice.

    DRM, 'clumsy and ineffective'

    hat's the view of Timothy B. Lee, a policy analyst at St Louis' Show-Me Institute, who also says:

    "The Founding Fathers gave Congress the right to recognize copyrights in order to 'promote the Progress of Science and the useful Arts.' It hardly promotes progress to give a handful of companies the ability to tightly control how consumers use copyrighted content. Rather, progress is promoted in a technological marketplace of interoperable products, consumer choice, and fierce competition.

    Hollywood Studios to Sell Movies Online
    By GARY GENTILE, AP

    The little gay cowboy movie that could continues to break new ground, this time on the business end of Hollywood.

    LOS ANGELES (April 3) - Hollywood studios will start selling digital versions of films such as "Brokeback Mountain" and "King Kong" on the Internet this week, the first time major movies have been available online to own.

    The films can't be burned onto a disc for viewing on a DVD player. Still, the move is seen as a step toward full digital distribution of movies over the Internet.

    Six studios said they would announce Monday that sales will begin through the download Web site Movielink. The site is jointly owned by five of the seven major studios.

    Warner Bros., Universal Pictures, Sony Pictures, Paramount Pictures, Twentieth Century Fox and MGM will offer some first-run and older titles on Movielink. New films will be priced similar to DVDs - between $20 and $30 - while older titles will sell for $10 to $20.

    In a separate announcement, Sony and Lionsgate said they will sell films through the CinemaNow site.

    Only films from The Walt Disney Co. will not be available, although both services say talks are ongoing.

    "Digital delivery hasn't arrived until the major studios allow home ownership, and now they have and now digital delivery is very real," said Jim Ramo, Movielink's chief executive.

    Studios will sell some new films online the same day they become available on DVD. Most films will be made available within 45 days.

    Studios began renting films online several years ago as a way to combat illegal downloading. Movies have been available through the Internet 30 to 45 days after hitting video stores, with rentals lasting just 24 hours for viewing primarily on computer screens.

    Digital delivery of video grew rapidly after Apple Computer Inc. began selling episodes of TV shows through its iTunes online store last October.

    This year, devices powered by new Intel computer chips and TV service delivered over the Internet will allow more consumers to watch Web video on their TVs instead of their computer screens, a key factor in downloading to own, analysts said.

    Studios are being cautious about selling films online in part because DVD sales produce more profit than box office receipts.

    But studios are also preparing for the day when major retailers such as Wal-Mart and Amazon.com begin offering their own movie download services.

    "The important thing is to embrace the future, respect the economics of DVD but move forward into digital delivery," said Ben Feingold, president of Worldwide Home Entertainment at Sony Pictures.

    The films available on Movielink can be stored indefinitely on a computer hard drive or transferred to as many as two other computers. The movies can be played on a TV if the computer is part of a home network.

    A copy can be burned to a DVD as a backup. Discs can be played on up three PCs authorized by Movielink but cannot be viewed on a standard DVD player because of special security coding.

    Consumers will not be able to transfer the films from a PC or laptop to a handheld portable viewing device. But that capability should be available sometime within the next year, Ramo said.

    Films on CinemaNow will be playable on just one computer. The company said it eventually expects studios to allow consumers to burn movies on DVD and transfer them to portable devices.

    Crazy song makes musical history in the UK
    Posted by Dan Bell on 03 April 2006 - 14:55 - Source: BBC

    heystoopid used our news submit to tell us "Oh well, thanks to HMV and the UK, the standards for number one song has been lifted by a bar, to the next level, in the words of Bob Dylan"s song "the times they are a changing"

    Crazy by Gnarls Barkley has made pop history as the UK"s first number one song based on download sales alone. Until this month, download sales could only count towards a chart position if the song could also be bought in shops. But under new rules, downloads can be counted as long as physical copies go on sale the following week.

    The song, used in ads for Zane Lowe"s Radio 1 show, has been downloaded more than 31,000 times on all internet sites, a spokesman for HMV said. Come of age The song, which is not available in shops until Monday, knocked last week"s top track So Sick, by Ne-Yo, off the top spot.

    Indeed, this certainly could be a sign of things to come! When was the last time you purchased a software program from a brick and mortar store, or have many of your purchases been downloads? Are we finally breaking the bond with the physical copy, the fancy shrink wrapped box...even for music? Long gone are the huge vinyl LP record jackets, now even the diminutive CD and it's plastic case are seemingly less important in todays portable world.

    By the way there Heystoopid...was that a pun you just made in your statement...lifted by a bar? Ouch!

    Gadgets Kodak Integrates Bluetooth into Cameras

    Bluetooth cameras on the way

    These days, wireless communications is a critical topic and one that's on the to-do list of virtually every technology company -- even Kodak. According to Engadget, the long-time camera and imaging company recently filed with the FCC for integrated Bluetooth technology into digital cameras.

    Bluetooth has enjoyed limited success in terms of computer peripherals, but has become a highly regarded feature for cell phones. Considering that most cell phones these days have cameras in them, it was only a matter of time until a company like Kodak introduced a digital camera that would be able to connect to a computer or laptop using Bluetooth. Wireless technology on a camera is not new however, as Nikon has already demonstrated that its D2H is even able to send photos wirelessly using the FTP protocol.

    Kodak's efforts will no doubt pave the way for more point-and-shoots to go the same route. At this time however, Bluetooth itself is still much to slow to transfer large amounts high resolution images.

    Deleting spyware: a criminal act?
    It could be...


    Now let's say I install Kazaa and agree to the GAIN ads they give me as a condition precedent for obtaining this useful P2P software. Or, suppose I install a demo version of a program, and agree to a condition that it will self-destruct if I don't pay for it. Or, I install a screensaver which contains a notice that it will also redirect my browser and install spyware (but I am dumb enough not to read that part). I am therefore bound by the terms of the contract I have agreed to - whether or not I have read it - unless the terms are unconscionable and therefore unenforceable, or they are so buried and inaccessible or fraudulently worded as to not be capable of forming a contract.
