ISPs should pay for music swapping

Yet another page has been tunred in the continuing saga of the RIAA against digital media. So what have they decided to do? Sue the ISPs!

 

"We will hold ISPs more accountable," said Hillary Rosen, chairman and CEO the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), in her keynote speech at the Midem music conference on the French Riviera.

 

"Let's face it. They know there's a lot of demand for broadband simply because of the availability (of file-sharing)," Rosen said.

Maybe one day they'll get the clue that users are tired of buying albums for 1 or 2 good songs. I'm not saying pirating music is good. But I think they should focus on finding a way to take advantage of the transfer capabilities of the internet. CDs typically have about 12-15 songs and cost 15 bucks. So why not offer 1 song for $1? (Or less since there's no cost for media,transportation, etc...)

Proper Speaker and Sound Setup Turtorial

Jay over at Hot Hardware has written up a tutorial which explains how to get the most from your current audio setup. Think your Klipsch's rock? Maybe you can get even more out of them by following some simple steps.

Whether you purchase the most expensive, or the cheapest set of speakers, position is the key for getting the most out of them. If this is done properly, any set of speakers can enhance the aural atmosphere and create a sense of space to movies, games and music. Most people who buy new speakers, usually just grab them out of the box, throw them on the table, plug them in and give them a test run. This is not a bad way to start off but there is a lot more you can do to produce better sound.

Hercules Fortissimo III 7.1 Sound Card Review

Overclockers Online has taken a closer look at the GameSurround Fortissimo III 7.1 Sound Card. That is right, 7.1 Sound for everyone! O wait ... where is my 7.1 Sound system? Has Hercules overlooked something here? Read the review and find out more about it.

If you take a good look at the specifications of this 7.1 sound card, you will see that it features Sensaura based 3D positional audio with support for most 3D effects used in most high-tech games of today as well as future games. Like I said before, the card has been improved with a Dolby Digital EX decoder to ensure a full 7.1-channel 360° realistic positional audio experience with Dolby Digital EX DVDs. For those who like to play with MIDI wavetables, Hercules has included a Yamaha S-YXG50 wavetable software synthesizer featuring 676 instrument sounds and 21 drum kits effects. Too bad there is no ASIO support :(
