Porn

Wait, you mean you can use P2P services for porn?! Why the hell aren't I notified about these things!

"We love file trading," said Kevin Blatt, sales director for the Triple X Cash, which operates the Collegefuckfest.com and Rectalrooter.com websites. "Why? It's called greed. We've found a way to monetize that sharing."

Blatt's company embeds hidden links in video clips and sends the short movies out on the sharing networks. Then, when a file-swapper downloads a clip and clicks somewhere in the video's frame, he's taken to one of Triple X Cash's sites. The company gets 25 to 40 "joins" -- $30 monthly subscriptions -- per day from this technique, according to Blatt.

Once again, the porn industry leads the way.

Although, just to be picky:

"What they (Apple executives) don't understand is that 99 cents ain't free. It's a lot more than free. It's 100 percent more than free," Rosso said.

Er, no. It's 99 cents more than free. But 100% of free ($0) is still $0.

  2. Conversely, however, free is 100% less than 99 cents.

  3. What amazes me is the strenuous logical exercises people will go to in order to justify their theft as something less wrong.
