MojoPac Free License

Posted by rexdixon on December 23, 2006

All you have to do is post why you want MojoPac. They are giving away 7mojopac.gif2 of the licenses; give away to occur on December 27th. Sounds like a great deal to me. Just leave them a comment, and make sure you read the other ones to get a decent idea of the people you are up against for the give away! You have no idea what MojoPac is?

Basically it’s a way for you to carry around your computer on a portable device. Not your computer obviously, but more like you data, files, mp3’s, etc.. Whatever it is that makes you feel like you are working on your computer anywhere you are. Make sense? If you are still curious, I did a post about another service that does pretty much the same thing. Both seem like a great way to carry about your computer settings on one of the many portable harddrives that are ample these days. Well a USB stick isn’t considered a HD, but you get what I’m saying; I hope!

Google’s $750 million secret facility

Posted by rexdixon on December 23, 2006

I love National Enquirer type of headlines. Why would Google go to South Carolina? Are they getting sick of paying the high prices of SV? Are they actually doing something super secret that they can’t do it in peace and quiet in SV? I guess we will all find out next week or maybe sooner. It could be later, but hey, with good quick posts like this – your guess is as good as mine.

Google passes Yahoo

Posted by rexdixon on December 23, 2006

Yahoo is just having a heck of the end of they year! First they are passed up by MySpace and now they are what – 3rd place? Who would have thought that Yahoo would be one day pushed to third place. Very interesting, but 2007 should bring some more interesting web developments. You can count on it. Google passed Yahoo, MySpace passed Yahoo, and soon Google and MySpace will be passed by ?

AllOfMp3 dot com sued for $1.65 Trillion!

Posted by rexdixon on December 23, 2006

That sure beats the $1.65 Billion that Google bought YouTube for. AllOfMp3 is being sued for $150,000 per song for the 11 million that were downloaded from June to October of 2006. That comes out to $1.65 TRILLION! What do I think?

This is nothing more then smoke and mirrors. Yes, just an elaborate cat and mouse game the RIAA is so good at playing. Do they really think they are going to get $1.65 Trillion or even $1.65? Come on now, readers think about this.

The RIAA is suing a company that is based in Russia. The same Russia that was the main country of the former Soviet Union. Do you really think the RIAA has any jurisdiction there? No. They are powerless, so they what did they do? They did what they always do best. Sue. That’s all they really are, just a bunch of lawyers that have no clue about music. They just want to protect your rights, or the rights of the musician. That is their line and has been for years. What is it really? A LIE.

Why? Because the record labels that are suing – EMI, Sony, BMG, Universal Music – all want to make more money for themselves. It’s obvious to me. How much of that $150,00 is going to trickle down to the artist? I can bet, it will be like oh let’s just say $0.

I don’t feel sorry for the record companies, they have raped musicians for years. The musicians are doing no worse then they did before AllOfMp3 dot com. By the way, has the RIAA read the Russian law books? Have they read how they treat online distribution of music? Basically, it’s legal what they are doing.

The RIAA is not good for music or the musicians that bust their butts to record and write it. They are in it for themselves, and the record company interests only. They aren’t there to give 1 cent to the artist that deserves like $149,999.99 of that $150,000. The artist and musician won’t see one penny of it. Instead, the RIAA might give that 1 cent to the musician.

The smart reader will go to AllOfMp3 dot com and download all they can. The RIAA isn’t about to turn over any money they will collect to the rightful owners of that money – and that to course is – the artist and musician. Interesting side note – I just saw Twisted Sister on some late show – they did a Christmas song – Come All Ye Faithful. Quite interesting. 🙂
