Wired News logs the brief

  • Wired News logs the brief history of Napster in “The Day the Music Died.” At the same time one of my favorite filesharing programs, WinMX, just released the new “milestone” version 3, which adds, amongst many features, multi-source downloading. This type of downloading means that you can get different parts of a file in question from multiple places simultaneously, which can speed up downloading if all the hosts have smaller bandwidth than you can handle (which is most of the time, since most consumer broadband connections have bigger download pipes than upload). This makes it competitive with apps like Kazaa which force you to deal with or circumvent all sorts of spyware. Can’t wait to try it out.
