  1. BitTorrent inventor Bram Cohen is making it clear that he has nothing to do with the TRON cryptocurrency. While the company he founded was recently acquired by TRON founder Justin Sun, Cohen is no longer officially involved. Instead, he's working on this own groundbreaking cryptocurrency. When Bram Cohen first revealed BitTorrent on a public message board on July 2nd 2001, he never imagined it would quickly become a main driver of Internet traffic. In the years that followed, hundreds of millions of people embraced the technology and more than seventeen years later, many still are. As the technology became more popular, Bram Cohen co-founded the company BitTorrent Inc. in 2004. This promising startup raised millions in funding and made millions more through advertising, but financially it never really took off. Cohen himself was more interested in code than money though. As BitTorrent Inc’s lead engineer he worked hard on a live streaming implementation of BitTorrent, believing that it could power the future of online live news and entertainment. Despite the technical achievements, BitTorrent Inc. headed into rough waters. The company tried to reinvent itself under new leadership, but the millions that were spent didn’t translate to greater success. BitTorrent’s inventor lashed out against the company’s management and it appears that he, slowly but steadily, went his own way. Cohen has recently taken an interest in blockchain technology, and he’s working on his own environmentally friendly cryptocurrency Chia. Where the broader public sees crypto as a revenue potential, Cohen is mostly interested by the technological aspects. He’s been critical of “goldbuggism” since the beginning and sees Bitcoin as something that’s fundamentally flawed, especially the wasteful mining process. “Goldbuggism” Considering Cohen’s criticism of other cryptocurrencies and the hype surrounding them, there is some irony to the fact that one of the most controversial cryptos, TRON, acquired the company he founded. TRON’s founder recently launched the idea to “improve” Cohen’s protocol by integrating it into the TRON network. This will allow users to earn TRX currency by seeding files. A controversial idea, for sure. But what does Bram Cohen himself think about all this? When we asked some questions using the regular @bittorrent.com email, we received an auto-response, suggesting that BitTorrent’s inventor is no longer using that address. Cohen hasn’t said anything in public about the TRON deal, and isn’t very talkative, but when we reached out using an alternative email the response was clear. “I have no involvement with Tron,” Cohen noted. We followed up by asking whether this means that he no longer has an official role at BitTorrent Inc. The response was again short but clear. “That is correct,” he said. It is no secret that BitTorrent’s inventor had started to distance himself from the company he founded, but the responses we received suggest that he has moved on permanently, which is a big deal. Unfortunately, Cohen didn’t comment any further on the issue. One can imagine, however, that seeing the company he built from the ground up being placed in the hands of a crypto millionaire, isn’t what he envisioned. BitTorrent Inc. certainly loses some of its flair, without Bram Cohen. It’s the end of an era and, at the same time, the start of an uncertain future. Source
  2. I downloaded a of IDM from a file sharing site. I loved it so I legally licensed the product but I can't removed the so-called cracked copy. How can i disable and delete a fake copy of internet download manager that loads on my windows startup?
  3. Google is now offering additional Google Drive online storage space at more affordable prices. The cuts are fairly significant and certainly offer you more bang for your buck. With Drive, you now get 15GB free. For 100GB, you need to shell out $1.99 a month, $9.99 for a terabyte, and $100.00 a month for 10TB. There are additional charges for storage over 10TB as well. If you want to change your storage plan, or think its worth it now to sign up for one, click on the source link below. It’s also worth mentioning that the new pricing kicks in automatically, so there’s no need to contact Google to sign up for the new payment structure. Source

    Looking For Reliable Torrent Uploader

    Looking for reliable Torrent Uploader specially uploading to thepiratebay. If any one has used or suggest torrent uploader as it is not convenient to upload large files via browser,It would be greatly appreciated. PS: I have create account with TPB seen some uploader you can login via uploader and send the file through your account but sadly some of those uploader not working any more. Seeking for similar application.
  5. Youd think that wed have already had all the possible file sharing use-cases covered when thinking about the different file sharing, backup and synchronization products I need to juggle a multitude of vendors and products in my head Dropbox, SugarSync, EMC Syncplicity, Box, Citrix ShareFile, Microsoft SkyDrive, Google Drive, Egnyte, Oxygen Cloud and on, and on and on. One would be forgiven for thinking that every conceivable niche would be covered. But apparently not, or at least thats what Intralinks is hoping the NYSE listed company is focused on inter-enterprise content management and collaboration solutions and boasts of 2.7M individual users and 99% of the Fortune 1000 using their product of course thats an easy claim to make and hard to disprove but lets move on to the latest announcement from the company. Intralinks is releasing its VIA Enterprise product, a solution that it claims goes beyond traditional file sync and share and supports the complete lifecycle management for the extended enterprise. Which sounds very much like marketing mumbo-jumbo. Even worse is a direct quote from the press release which promises that: Intralinks VIA is a secure and scalable enterprise collaboration solution that helps organizations take lifetime control of their most important information and frees employees to reach new levels of productivity" Essentially VIA takes the sync and share paradigm we know and love, and gives it enterprise-grade security. Over the top of that they morph a content-management paradigm and offer the ability to create specific content repositories (Intralinks Exchanges) which integrate with parallel content repositories on Microsoft MSFT +1.44% SharePoint. Essentially youve got sync and share tied to the document management solution and with a dose of enterprise audit and control on top of it. Or, in other words, youve pretty much got what most other vendors promise to deliver. However, not wanting to dismiss the offering, and having had a good conversation with the company previously, I wanted to dig in to a customer story from Intralinks to get an idea of whether there is real value there or simply a me too offering. I was pointed in the direction of Essex (the company, not the place) a 60-something year old supplier to aerospace, defense and emergency services. The company seems a perfect candidate for distributed file sharing 375 employees spread across four distinct manufacturing plants along with regular interactions with other manufacturers and with their many customers means that file sharing is a daily problem for the company. Previously the company had been utilizing an in-house FTP site, along with some rogue use of Dropbox. Network manager Donna Wurth wasnt happy with this scenario pointing to the strict requirements their defense customers have in terms of file expiration dates and geographical restrictions on storage. The company has to regularly share very large and sensitive files with external contactsengineering drawings, sales documents, marketing materials, and even purchase orders. They also didnt want to bear the overhead of maintaining their clunky old FTP system they needed a simple, secure and scalable solution. Essex provided me with a list of reasons for why they chose Intralinks over their incumbent solutions. The reasons are obvious access, the ability to outsource the provision of the solution, cross-platform support, security and guaranteed US-located data storage. Those are all valid reasons but theyre also requirements that would have been met by dozens of other vendors Box, Huddle, ShareFile and many others can pull similar case-studies out of the hat. And therein lies the problem file sync and share is definitely not a zero-sum game, but at the same time is there really an opportunity for quite so many vendors in the space? I tend to think not and cant help but predict consolidation and rationalization in the industry. http://www.forbes.com/sites/benkepes/2014/01/10/the-world-needs-another-file-sharing-offering-intralinks-steps-up-to-the-plate/
