Everyone Is Downloading Music

Making music downloads legal seems to be the perfect solution to stopping music piracy, which really encompasses downloading music for than anything else. Many people like to download music because it is easy and the quality is of decent quality but most people are concerned about doing it illegally. Here are some reasons why downloading music makes sense. 1. You are able to listen to music for free before purchasing the entire CD. 2. You can are able to listen to new artists.

Just a couple of years ago people were able to download, share and upload music on the original Napster site for free, this was the controversy to the record companies and artists if this was legal. The big popularity of music downloads started with Napster which was initial company which allowed you to download software to share, upload or download music without paying for it. This was revolutionary and showed the power of the internet.

Since Napster has been closed down and not allowed to give out free music and other similar websites have been closed most have been re-invented to provide legal music downloads. When illegal downloading started artists and companies were outraged about this, and they were especially angry with Napster, Napster allowed multiple number of people to connect to each others computer and download and share music without paying for it.

Many companies were worried about the loss of profits from music fans downloading the music instead of going to stores and purchasing the entire CD, so many bands, record companies have tried to enact laws about people downloading from free music sites. When downloading music and you see that you can download music and it has the same quality as buying the CD and easier it makes sense to most people to sit in front of their computer and download the music.

Well, free downloads brought down Napster and they’re illegal – why even risk it. There are sites that offer free music downloads you just need to find them. Napster now offers music at a price. There are many other sites that offer the same deals. You can download many different types of music from ITunes. The cost of this is fairly inexpensive and you do not need to join a club. You can also download videos to view on your video ipod.

When downloading be careful of viruses and or spyware, these programs are usually embedding in the file itself and when you open it or unzip the file your system becomes infected. Look on the internet for reputable music download sites. Another point to remember is that these download site can now record your IP Address. By doing this that can find out what provider is using the range of IPs and once found they can get the records and find out which IP address is assigned to whom. If caught you might have to pay a fine or you could be sent to prison. Think twice before downloading illegally.

Free PSP Music Sites – Do They Exist?

Yes they do exist, but there are a few important things you should know about before you decide to try and download “free” music for your PSP.

Where are free PSP music sites to be found?

The first place to start is to search the net, using a favorite search engine and you would simply type in “free PSP music”. There are pages of sites where you can download free music. These sites use the P2P format (peer-to-peer). This is basically a file sharing facility available on the net.

Some Negative Things you may not know of about ‘Free’!

What many people who search for free music for their PSP are unaware of is that a PSP player will only play MP3 music. This means that any other file format will have to be converted before it is downloaded into the PSP.

One major drawback of trying to download music files from the sites is the very slow download speed. It can take up to 30 minutes to download some songs. Compare this to iTunes for example where a download should take no more than 15 seconds, depending on the size of file sometimes its even less time. So the bottom line is, as far as download time is concerned, you would need to be downloading overnight!

Another major drawback with these “free PSP music” sites is that the quality of download can often be quite horrendous. Not only will you experience broken links but you will also experience background noise. This is due to a very poor quality database file that has often been corrupted. Unfortunately, most music from these sites is poor quality. However, having said that, there are sites out there that have good quality music-these tend be sites which focus on special genre music such as deep Soul Jazz, certain types of rock ‘n’ roll, – generally niche sites. So if you’re looking for a generalist music download site then I’m sorry to say that you are going to be disappointed.

The most worrying aspect of these free download sites is that unscrupulous site managers/owners use the PSP owners desire to reduce costs (preferably to zero) to provide an opportunity to infect the PSP users console with malicious viruses and Trojans. It is not uncommon for PSP owners to have to clear out all the files in a PSP to rectify a problem that has been caused in this way. So it really is a balance of risks by trying to download free music in getting poor quality music and at worst viruses.

You will also find in your search of PSP music sites another type of site that offers free music but when you go to download music you are prevented from doing so unless you actually sign up for a monthly membership subscription. This defeats the purpose of trying to find a free PSP music site because let’s face it it’s anything but free! These sites also tend to put “limits” on the amount of music you can download at any one time. By the time that you have discovered this you will already have spent anywhere from $30-$45 (usually three months membership). However, there are many good subscription sites out there but if you’re looking for free then its probably going to be too expensive.

Have you considered unlimited download sites?

I know that you’re after PSP music that’s free. Well, there are free sites, they do exist but there is still a cost to them. This is probably a cost that you would not want to incur.

There is an alternative and this is by considering membership of an unlimited download site. In particular, there are PSP download sites that offer unlimited downloads for a low lifetime membership cost, usually no more than $37.

The reason I have mentioned this is that these sites seem to offer the benefit of keeping costs low but at the same time maximizing choice, quality, security and value for money. No doubt, as the owner of a PSP, you will probably play games as well and many of these sites have got such a wide variety of choice that you will be able to download games as well as PSP music.

An important consideration is that these sites also provide sophisticated conversion software that will allow you, in one place i.e., the membership area, to download and convert a huge choice of PSP music and other files with ease.

In a way, the PSP music that you download is actually free but the cost is in joining the site. If you do the mathematics, it’s not hard to work out that after you download 35 tunes you will have broken even and every tune, music video and game will be free!

3D Racing Games Mania

The construction and graphics of computer games have evolved amazingly in the last decade mainly due to the development of better, more powerful computer hardware components that could support the kind of racing games the developers had in mind. Although most of the famous car racing games have been in 3D for years, if you search the worldwide Internet you can find some very funny, very interesting smaller 3D racing games.

A small, funny 3D racing game that you can play by yourself of with multiple players using LAN is a game where you have to race against seven opponents. No cars, no boats, no vehicles of any kind, just you, a couple of maps, the desert or jungle and your six opponents. Among other interesting 3D racing games you will find Freeride Thrash where you race against the computer in a spaceship that takes you flying through tunnels or sliding around twisted tracks. It is a very fun racing game to play and if you try your very best maybe the computer won’t beat you.

Have you ever raced in a barrel? Well, here’s your chance! The list of funny 3D racing games continues with this twenty levels racing game that has you rolling down the highway at amazing speed. The goal is not to touch the sides of the road and crash into as many enemy cars as you can find.

But, in the end, 3D is most appreciated when power vehicles are racing so the Aquadelic 3D power boat racing game designed especially for the 2005 Becherovka Game contest has to be present on this list of 3D racing games. This racing game comes in single player as well as multiplayer versions. In the single player version you race against the computer and only one of the four different power boats is available to you. However, if you win you can unlock the other three. There are three different types of racing in single mode: you can race opponents (no more than three), you can race against the best time of an opponent or you can freestyle. In multiplayer mode this racing game can be played by four players at the most and they can only race or freestyle.

Even though the 3D racing games involving power vehicles are much more popular, there are still some smaller, creative 3D racing games that can be a lot of fun to play.
