Radiohead are a band which does not need to prove anything to anyone. Their seminal album 'OK Computer' is consistently voted one of the greatest recordings of all time, be it the critics or mere mortal music fans putting the crosses in the boxes. Which is perhaps why the latest Radiohead album '[URL="http://www.inrainbows.com"]In Rainbows[/URL]' has not been made available through the usual channels, but rather the group have bucked the trend and challenged the music industry by making it available for free download instead. It was not meant to be quite that simple, of course. The distribution and sales model …

Here's a fun problem for you geniuses who know SharePoint and networking. We upload videos to our SharePoint site. Regardless of the size, when we play it here at the corporate office, it will play about 20 seconds in and then reset to zero and you would have to refresh the page. If you try to download the file, it will race until 70% complete and the slow the F down and then (in Chrome) say "Failed - Network Error" and in IE it says "The [file name] download was interrupted." When downloading or watching videos outside of our network, …

I know that Apple has been expending a lot of hot air telling anyone who will listen that the new iTunes pricing regime is a good thing for consumers. I know that it reckons that for every song which is ramped up to the new 99p (here in the UK) price it will drop another 10 songs down to the 59p bottom dollar pricing. Trouble is, I also know that music download market runner-up Amazon has taken advantage of consumer confusion surrounding the price changes by jumping in with 100+ songs going for just 29p a pop. Importantly, Amazon has …

Kid Rock, The Beatles, AC/DC and Garth Brooks would make for a bizarre and unlikely concert line up, yet they share something in common: they are the last men standing as far as making their music available on iTunes. In the case of Kid Rock, he is apparently refusing to put those albums over which he has control onto iTunes as a matter of principle. [URL="http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/entertainment/7459796.stm"]According to the BBC[/URL] the Rock 'n' Roll Jesus, real name Robert Ritchie, is holding firm simply because performers are not getting paid their fair dues for material downloaded from the market leading Apple music …

Hi I'm writing a site that allows users to download documents securely stored on the network off of the web server. I'm using a com object on the server that we've been using here for ages that fetches the file from the network in a binary stream thus preventing user access to the network. The problem I'm having is when the user clicks on the link, instead of the file opening, the page reloads itself with the stream as its source. On the open save dialog instead of filename.* I get MyPage.aspx as the file name it is as if …

I recently acquired a dedicated hosting site from godaddy.com. I have a registered domain [url]www.realfucknlove.com[/url] that i use with my google blogger account. When I upload media files such as mp3s to my download folder in my hosting account the link looks like this [url]http://173.201.132.244/download/04%20-%20Freak%20Me%20Like%20(Instrumental).mp3[/url] I how would I replace the digits 173.201.132.244 to read [url]www.realfucknlove.com[/url] or anything other than those numbers. Is this where I would create a sub domain?

The thread that asks for programs worth downloading has provided me (and I'm sure others) with excellent sources for improving their computer experience. But what about those programs you have downloaded that turned out to be tragic blunders--messing up your computer and giving you all sorts of problems? We could help members of our community (and those who just peek into DaniWeb without registering)if we were to compile a collection of programs that messed us up and warn others to beware of them. Tell us the program/s to avoid and what undesireable affects it/they caused.

If piracy and illegal downloaders really are killing the music industry, how come more singles have been sold this year than ever before and people who file-share spend more money on legal releases than those who do not file-share? I have to admit, it's not been a good week to be on the side of law and order and the established way of things as far as the music business is concerned. While the UK Government pushes ever onwards with the Digital Economy Bill which promises a robust legal and regulatory framework to deal with illegal file-sharing, and continues to …

I have an .exe that I want people to be able to download and run on Vista. It needs to run as admin. I have a web page with a 'Download' button. Assume I am logged in as an admin. I click the 'Download' button and IE8 asks whether to Run or Save. I choose 'Run'. The program is downloaded and started by IE 8.

I ask because according to the latest data, there would seem to be an increasing number of working pirates around these days. The trouble is that they can be hard to spot as they do not tend to go for the Captain Jack look nor sport a long beard, come missing a leg or complete with a parrot. However, according to web security specialist ScanSafe, there has been a 55% increase in employees attempting to download illegal software and MP3s in the workplace over the last three months, so they are obviously out there and quite possibly in your office. …

Some people like to get their free Microsoft products by adopting the [URL="http://www.daniweb.com/blogs/entry4255.html"]eye patch and a parrot approach[/URL] via sites such as The Pirate Bay. Some of us, however, rather like the idea of getting Windows 7 totally free, totally legally, and direct from Microsoft for good measure. Yes, I can confirm that simply by downloading the 2.47GB [URL="http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windows-7/"]Windows 7 Release Code[/URL] version direct from Microsoft [URL="http://www.daniweb.com/blogs/entry4283.html"]from May 5th[/URL] through July, you will be entitled to run it without charge until June 2010.

Microsoft has made a double whammy of Windows 7 update announcements. The first concerns a hotfix for a bug that could "cause some application failures on the English version of Windows 7 Release Candidate 32-bit Ultimate" while the second brings news of the arrival of as many as 10 'fake' updates which "will not deliver any new features or fixes." There has already been some concern over [URL="http://www.daniweb.com/blogs/entry4328.html"]potential security problems with Windows 7[/URL], and consternation at how the 'free trial period' will be ended which some have [URL="http://www.itpro.co.uk/blogs/daveyw/2009/05/07/has-microsoft-gone-mental/"]described as being mental[/URL], so such mixed messages are bound to be met …

Apple has started the countdown to the billionth app to be downloaded from the App Store. The company has put up a live [URL="http://www.apple.com/itunes/billion-app-countdown/"]countdown counter on the web[/URL] which is spinning so fast I am surprised it has not flown off the page. Mind you, when you consider that in December there were [URL="http://www.daniweb.com/blogs/entry3625.html"]300 million[/URL] App Store downloads, 500 million by the middle of January and now, less than three months later, it has nearly doubled that I guess it is not too surprising.

The iPhone App Store has been open for just five months, since July 11th to be precise. Yet in this time, so an Apple advert running in the New York Times informs us, no less than 300 million applications have been downloaded. Now those are two hugely important numbers, 300 million downloads in five months, not least because the iTunes Store did not come anywhere close to matching them. More to the point, it took iTunes nearly a year before it even passed then 50 million mark. Sure, it eventually went passed the 300 million songs downloaded but it took …

Researchers tell us that, in the UK market, there were some 1.5 billion 'legal' music downloads last year. That's covering all bases, different devices and download services, but discounting the illegal file sharing trade. The Goddess alone knows how big the figure would be if you factored in dodgy P2P business and back bedroom file swapping. However, the point is that one research firm, TNS Technology, now reckons that it doesn't matter as the real big numbers will come from mobile phone music downloads via the Sony Ericsson and Nokia portals. How does 2.1 billion downloads of 'mobile music' in …

A member of Skype staff posting in the Linux support forum there seems to have taken a course in customer relations from <insert your least favourite company here> if his responses to criticism of the lack of real world development of the Linux version of Skype, compared to Windows development, are anything to go by.

There are not many things, it has to be said, that a Linux user would covet of his Windows using neighbor. Skype is quite possibly one of them though, but not for much longer. The first meaningful development for the Linux Skype client in almost a year has arrived in the shape of [URL="http://www.skype.com/download/skype/linux/"]Beta 1.3.0.30 [/URL] I was starting to think that Microsoft rather than eBay had acquired Skype, such has been the time, money and devotion lavished upon the Windows client since: video calls added, stability issues fixed, UI beefed up yada, yada, yada.

Accusations are nothing new to Microsoft -- they continue to battle various groups in Europe and Asia for various antitrust violations. That is nothing new. What is new is that South Korea continues investigating, and Microsoft replied with a threat. "It might be necessary to withdraw Windows from the Korean market, or delay offering new versions in Korea" Microsoft said in a U.S. regulatory filing. WOW! Microsoft actually leaving a market instead of correcting it's code and policies to conform with fair trade practices, and IT common sense. It is no secret that Microsoft wants a Windows & IE world …
