ISPs To Punish Illegal Downloaders

Are you one of those people who would rather risk stiff fines and possible jail time than spending money on any digital content? If you have Comcast, AT&T, or Verizon here is your warning that they plan to start cracking down even more if you are caught sharing illegal files.

These ISPs have been working on an agreement with media companies more closely with piracy. Rather than just receiving a warning in the mail you could receive throttled bandwidth or limited access to the Internet.

Comcast CEO Shows Off 1Gbps Internet Speeds

Brian Roberts, the CEO of Comcast, has recently shown off the next-generation cable broadband technology. The new broadband would deliver speeds over 1Gbps to homes. As you can see in the video below, Roberts demonstrates himself downloading 23 episodes of the TV show, 30 Rock in just under two minutes.

Comcast boasted that it is the largest broadband provider in the United States and that the company has big plans for the future. Currently, the technology was only tested on an eleven mile cable network, but it proves the potential of the company as they expand coverage throughout.

Sprint Upgrades Upload Speed To 1.5Mbps

Sprint customers will soon be enjoying an upload speed of 1.5Mbps, compared to the original 1Mbps upload rate. The news came from an internal screen that was captured by Android Police, and reported from AndroidCentral.

The change will be implemented tomorrow, Friday, June 10th and will only affect 4G phones, sorry to all you 3G users.

Google Music Offers 50GB Of Free Cloud Services

Google Music will launch tomorrow at Google I/O 2011. Google will offer users a digital locker that will allow songs to be stored within the cloud-based service, much like Amazon’s service. You can do this now with Google Docs but are only allowed to send one song at a time. Android streaming has also been heavily tested due mainly from a leaked Android Music app that started going around later in 2010.

There will be one key difference between Google Music and Amazon’s platform, and that is the Google service will offer ten times more storage. A free Google locker will offer 50GB of storage data that will accommodate 20,000 songs compared to Amazon’s 2,000 (for the free version.)

RIM’s New BlackBerry Bold 9900 UNVEILED W/ Video!

Mobile maker, Research In Motion has just unwrapped its latest gadget in the BlackBerry phone lineup. The new device is called the BlackBerry Bold 9900/9930 and will be RIM’s thinnest BlackBerry phone yet. The new Bold finally has a touchscreen, thank god! Also to come, is a full QWERTY keyboard for all the texting you could possibly desire.

RIM also claims that the new QWERTY keyboard is its best to date. The BlackBerry will run on the new BlackBerry 7 OS and feature a 1.2GHz High Performance CPU, 768 RAM, 8GB of storage, touchscreen, 4G support, and Near-Fields Communications technology.

New Piracy Video-Sharing Site, TubePlus Set In Motion

The controversial file-sharing website, The Pirate Bay, are openly supporting the new hybrid video-sharing site, TubePlus. TubePlus integrates content from BitTorrent websites, Megaupload, Hotfile, and eMule to deliver streaming video service for piracy doers. Instead of searching and downloading files, TubePlus users will search for their favorite TV shows and movies within the database and stream the content directly into their browser’s interface.

The website also contains links to IMDB reviews of the digital content. While geeks are probably jumping up and down at the news of an “all-content Youtube”, I am sure the RIAA are sweating under their eyebrows.

Comcast Offer 105Mbps Internet Speeds

In Internet speed terms, 5Mbps is a good connection, one should be able to play first person shooter videogames on it without any problems, movies and music download at a reasonable rate. A 10Mbps connection is really fast and will allow you to download gigabytes of data, say if you’re downloading a full featured game, over night. Being able to download 15GB of data in one night still impresses me. Comcast has announced today that they are delivering 105Mbps connections to over 40 million homes around the United States.
