Kazaa to rise from the dead

Recommended Posts

The notorious Kazaa peer-to-peer file sharing service is back from the dead three years after it was shut down by the music industry in a $150 million lawsuit.

But the software looks entirely different this time around, with users forced to pay for their music instead of trading tracks illegally.

There was a time yrs ago that I may have considered a $20 per month all you want to listen to service. Those days are over. I have a collection now that will suffice me until I die of old age. (maybe a couple of weeks? lol ) Their music generally comes with too many restrictions making it too difficult to use. The quality sucks too. I get cd quality downloads for free so I am not about to pay for a low bit rate mp3. I have seen quite a few audiophile vinyl albums posted in a 24bit 96khz rip that makes cds seem shitty by comparison. Even if I never download another album, I am good to go. I have no interest in new releases and I have all the old ones that I could ever listen to so I guess I'll spend my $20 somewhere else.

...ammo maybe. :lol:

    • Wait, Burning Man is going online-only? What does that even look like?
      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
