The Foul Flavor of Force-Fed Vista

Costco and Sam's Club are rationing rice. Friday's reported incident in the Persian Gulf probably has more than a few paranoid individuals stocking up on gasoline. And to top it all off, Microsoft's cutoff date for Windows XP is coming in two months, a decision that's left over 165,000 fans of the ...

The Beauty of Not Asking Permission

Last year, when Viacom visited YouTube and spotted shows from MTV, Comedy Central and other content producers it owns, it decided to act quickly -- and the only quick reaction a company of Viacom's size is capable of in that sort of situation is to sue. Only after many months did other giant TV netw...

When Will the Wireless Price War Hit Home?

My sympathies to those out there who used last month's announcements from T-Mobile, AT&T and Verizon as an excuse to quickly jump ship from Sprint Nextel and sign a contract with someone else for an all-you-can-eat talk plan at $100 a month.

Cooper Lawrence and the Mass Effect of Gamers Scorned

My limited experience with online games has been nothing but nasty, brutish and short. A few online rounds of "Halo 2" at a friend's house showed me just how vicious gamers can be when they smell fresh meat. I could barely run 20 feet before getting cut down.

It's made a smart move by growing out of DRM in its music division -- at least a little, at least reportedly -- and it's scored a decent victory on the Blu-ray side in getting Warner Bros. to commit to its hi-definition DVD format. All on the Friday before CES. Nicely done....

Joost Beta Presents a Rich Tapestry of Oddball Offerings

It's no secret that an awful lot of TV shows and movies can be found on file-sharing networks like BitTorrent and Kazaa. It's also no secret that the producers of those shows really, really hate it when people share them without permission. Is there a way for content makers to cash in on what is a c...

Red Lambda CTO Robert Bird: Putting a Harness on P2P File-Sharing
