RIAA: Pirates Are Bigger Music Fans Than Average Consumers | TorrentFreak | The P2P Daily | Scoop.it

After a study pointed out that file-sharers spend more money on music than their non-sharing counterparts, the RIAA felt the need to respond.

_______
*DE-FI-NI-TIVE-LY: "Pirates" are The Solution for The Music Industry Malediction.
Leave 'em Alone, Stop making nonsensical laws (that jails sharers, for example),
and Rock On The Music: Lower Prices, Forget DRM, Widen Supply...
and Quit Chasin' P2P Networks.

-As in Music so in The Rest of Culture... Knowledge.

Personal P2P Mesh Network: Share Mobile Access From Your Smartphone To Any Computer

(Reuters) - "Travelling and looking for Internet access?

 

A new smartphone app allows users to share mobile Web access for free with other people nearby who have the same app.

 

Called Open Garden, the app forms a mesh network that enables each person connected to it to relay it to other users.

 

"Every smartphone is a computer and a router, so we thought it was the right time to interconnect all of these devices together to make general access more ubiquitous," said Micha Benoliel, co-founder and CEO of the San Francisco-based company Open Garden."

From Lifehacker: "Open Garden is both a Wi-Fi tethering app and a mesh network. Install it on your Android phone and you can use your mobile data wirelessly on your Windows or Mac laptop, as well as Android tablets.

 

Not only that—you can piggyback on others' mobile connections.

 

Once you've installed the app on your phone and the client on your computer, Open Garden will run in the background managing the connection over Bluetooth.

 

The Android app shows you all the devices connected in Open Garden, as well as the data being transferred.

 

Open Garden supposedly sniffs around for other devices using Open Garden and will manage the best way for yours to get online."
