I may be breaking the fundamental rules of Slashdot, but ...
- the "article" is a single post on a recently created blog
- they misspell "lose"
- a quick google of Brett Wooldrige doesn't bring up anything exciting (a Forbes blog account with no content?)

This is the very definition of "nothing to see here, move along".


+ - Swedish firm to offer lawful alternative to piracy

Karol (515082) writes "A Swedish company believes it may have discovered a lawful solution to the movie industry's long-running file sharing quandary. By merging peer to peer file sharing methods with advanced watermarking technology, Stockholm firm Headweb hopes to beat the internet pirates at their own game and offer consumers a legal alternative. Customers will be given the opportunity to pay for movies, download them legally using BitTorrent technology and view them using a regular DVD player."

+ - Homework!?

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "With all the talk about Blizzard lately, I was asked a question about Guild Wars and World of Warcraft. While both games address different aspects, how would you get Blizzard to drop the monthly fee for WoW without trying to generate a force needed to compensate for the entropy of the players' need to play the game? After all, the no monthly free works for Guild Wars, so the model itself is fine. Or perhaps the question should be stated, how would you get this model to be the accepted form for all MMORPGs? Also, assume that the person asking me will not accept impossible for an answer. I would like to know your thoughts."

Byte your tongue.
