  • Daddy Yankee Defends Music Piracy in Peru
    Reaggaeton Don, Daddy Yankee feels it's justifiable for poor people to be music pirates. While promoting his album, Barrio Fino en Directo in Lima, the artist said that music piracy is unstoppable.

  • How Not To Steal A Sidekick II
    I found out about this a few days ago from Hip Hop Blogs and have been watching the activity ever since. This dude Evan is a true Internet gansta and presents a serious case for the power of the interweb and exposes interesting issues about privacy. It's a realy crazy unfolding of a story, best left to the words of Evan.

  • Speaking of Issues of Privacy
    VH1 News reports that Dick Cheney Might Want to be your MySpace Buddy. It seems like the National Security Administration is looking into all of the information people post about themselves on social networking sites like Friendster and Napster. As cool as UGC (user generated content) is, it could also end up biting you in the ass 10 years from now.

  • Google Censors itself in China
    I really don't think that Google had a choice in the matter if they wanted Google to stay. "On Tuesday, Google co-founder Sergey Brin was quoted in news reports saying that he believed the company may have compromised its principles by agreeing to state-ordered censorship." (Wired News)

    Google's China-approved search engine service does not allow access to what Chinese authorities regard as politically sensitive information - such as details about the June 1989 suppression of political unrest in Tiananmen Square. (International Reporter)

  • World Cup Style
    It was all about Puma vs Adidas, with Puma taking the lead for sponsored countries in the soccer World Cup. And just in case you didn't know, the Puma vs Adidas thing is real and reads like the story of Cain vs Abel.
