Automate Bittorent Downloads

Here's my new reason why Bittorrent is just not for stealing copyrighted material anymore. Ready for it?

Automated RSS feed torrent downloads. Well I guess the title of this post kind of gave it away didn't it. But that doesn't matter. Jake Ludington's MediaBlab has a great walk through on how to setup and use this super useful and time saving Azureus plugin.

I'm totally using this to get all my favorite programing from Revision3. I hate to admit it, but I have stopped watching REV3 content mainly because of the extra step of having to download the episodes. But no more! Now I'll be able to catch all their pack shaped goodness. Especially the new Tekzilla where Patrick Norton dropped the F-bomb in the first episode. Couldn't do that on TechTv now could we Mr. Norton.

Of course I will miss the old InDigital.

Too Zune

There's this great clip of Leo Laporte of TWIT on what seems like Indigital (I haven't watched the latest epsiode yet from REV3 yet) going nutsoid (for Leo anyway) about the Micro$oft Zune.

Leo makes some great reasons why not to buy it like how M$ is paying record labels a percentage of sale of the players.

But I don't agree with him on the downsides of the wi-fi though. What players can buy songs over wi-fi or surf the web… ah none. It's kind of cool that you could share songs (pictures, video)  with fellow Zuners, the downside is trying to find one :-).

He's right about the DRM being a pain, but that's true of any closed music store system. People have no problem getting nailed to IPod DRM but the reason they are all off on the Zune is that they know their investment in ITunes is useless outside of the IPod. I just hope for all those IPoders ITunes never dies or they are stuck with a capital "I". Another downside to ITunes is for the time being able to buy videos is solely an American pleasure. So bittorent still has a place in my heart.
