Need to be careful with this when it comes to warranty claims though, sometime you'll find some sort of 'warranty breaker' either on the case, or on the slot which allows you to remove the drive (I found one on the INSIDE of my laptop which ripped as soon as I pulled the drive), so if you change it, and take it back, they can say "It's been opened", and give you no choice of repair.
cursorx writes "Slyck reports that the MPAA loving Swedes from The Pirate Bay have just opened a new site called Oscartorrents.com. Not only do they provide links to torrents of most of this year's Academy Awards nominees, but they're also asking for users' votes. After the ceremony, they intend to publish a list of winners based on the torrent community's collective opinion. According to The Pirate Bay, "this is the way it should be done now that movie distribution is almost free. Hollywoodland might not like it, but some people always have to be dragged kicking and screaming into the future.""
