Heh, it's not available in my country as well. I'm doomed to p2p, I guess. ;-)

rudlavibizon Re:People will complain.... (329 comments)

Yeah but it feels stupid to pay for something you had for free for so long and not have any bonuses for that while people who live in richer countries don't have to pay anything. In my country a lot of people don't even have credit cards so they most likely won't pay even if they can afford it. And there are a lot more poorer countries then mine.

rudlavibizon Re:What about Spotify? (329 comments)

I'd like an invite please :). My email is my user name at Thanks. Maybe we should send invites to all our friends? This subscription just seems wrong, instead of offering more features, like listening to whole albums, they discriminate people by their IP address. I know nothing is free but since we contributed by scrobbling I think we deserve more. Not to mention developers who contributed to their client. I happily subscribe to flickr because I get MORE for a pro account. I actually stopped pirating because of and now I have to go back to soulseek and torrent. I feel like a fool because I recommended to so many people. Come march 30th, i'm deleting the account.

Why TV Lost

rudlavibizon Re:I'm not dead yet (576 comments)

I think the article talks about the difference in the way of delivery (centralized vs. multiple sources) rather then the act of watching. You seem not to see the wood from the trees, you can watch youtube on the 24" screen if it's connected to the pc. It's also a question of time when all TV will have a browser of some sort. And you can watch it on your mobile, laptop or whatever. It means you won't tune in to watch the the show at the exact time on the exact tv channel but you'll probably take a link from a facebook friend and watch it at the time of your convenience. You could have, for example, 'my recommendations' menu on your tv remote just as you have a dvd menu. What is important is that you don't get served in the same way which will change the kind of shows you are watching

Microsoft May Be Targeting the Ubuntu Desktop

Software compatibility? Maybe they are going to "persuade" commercial sw companies not to make Linux compatible apps.

Palm Announces Killer New Phone

rudlavibizon Re:Why it will fail (617 comments)

I don't own a smartphone yet, because I don't want to have to carry anything that costs more than 100 euros in my pocket, but the way I see it the OS and it's apps on the mobile phone are different from your desktop PC. You don't need complex programs like photoshop or word on such a small device. Most of the stuff is pretty simple and will come off the web pretty soon. That means that it will be cheap or free (as in beer) or OSS. So in a while there will be nothing to differentiate significantly the handsets software wise and the only thing will be hardware (especially the looks of it, since we tend to take these things publicly) and easy of use. And price, of course.
