BitTorrent Calls UDP Report "Utter Nonsense"

AndresCP Re:Best of intentions (238 comments)

Yeah, that is a ridiculous description. No one uses TCP for real-time work, which is the only time a lost packet would be noticeable to any end user.

RIAA Keeps Settlement Money, Artists May Sue

AndresCP AndresCP writes  |  more than 6 years ago

AndresCP (979913) writes "From an article on Torrent Freak, apparently artists represented by the RIAA are tired of not seeing any of the money from the organization's lawsuits. "Despite collecting an estimated several hundred million dollars in P2P related settlements from the likes of Napster, KaZaA and Bolt, prominent artists' managers are complaining that so far, they haven't received any compensation.""

Why Did Blu-Ray Win?

AndresCP AndresCP writes  |  more than 6 years ago

AndresCP (979913) writes "Now that Blu-Ray has definitively won our most recent format war, it's time to reflect on the past. Specifically, why was Blu-Ray able to pull ahead with the major companies and (to a limited extent thus far) with consumers? As a Slashdot member since before the format war, I feel that the opinion here was that HD DVD would probably win in spite of Blu-Ray's technical superiority. That was my thought too, given Sony's disastrous track record with proprietary formats and the idea of consumer inertia influencing the purchase of familiar sounding "HD DVD" over the scarier "Blu-Ray." So, what went right for Sony and wrong for Toshiba?"
