Royksopp’s album “Senior” leaked

Alright. Norwegian electric band Royksopp has been posting juicy little blurbs about their new album, Senior, for months now. They’ve pushed back the release date once or twice, and have finally announced that the album, originally due for earlier this summer, would be released September 13th. The album is meant to accompany their prior album, Junior; while Junior contained lighter and more energetic tracks, Senior is said to contain some of the slower, darker, more lethargic tracks.

But the album has been leaked.

That’s right. The whole album has been floating around almost every major torrent site and on a few filehosting sites. And, may I say, it’s fantastic. It’s really, really good.

You can download Senior from ThePirateBay.org here. But please, buy the vinyl or something. The album is totally worth it.

Download Senior now.

Download, Try out Chrome OS, Free!

Chrome OS, here at last.

Everyone’s heard tons and tons of hype about the new Chrome OS, and I’m no exception. Recently, the device-site “GDGT” announced that they had a working version of the OS on their site, for free (Chrome is said to retail at roughly $40). They are offering Chrome’s “developer preview 0.4.22.8” for download on their site.

Before you ask, yes, this is 100% legal. Why, you may ask? The OS itself requires very, very specific hardware (for example, you need a solid state drive, not a hard drive, if you want to run the Chrome OS), and is said to be a “proprietary” operating system, meaning that, as of right now, not all computers can run it.

Wait, can I run it or not?

“Wait!” you may ask. “Why should I download it if I can’t run it?” There are two ways to try out the Chrome OS. The OS download comes in the form of a VMWare Image. There are two way to run the image; One way is to download VMWare Player (PC) or VMWare Fusion(Mac). These allow you to run alternate operating systems in virtualized windows on your computer. In other words, you can run the Chrome OS in a window on your computer, just like any other application. Alternatively, you can try Virtualbox, which can read VMWare images, although not 100% perfectly.

If you’d like to try booting into Chrome from a USB drive, GDGT does offer a bootable version on their download page as well. You need to be running a distribution of Linux to run it, though.

Where can I get it?

To download the VMWare Image or the flash drive distribution, you’ll need to create a GDGT account by clicking here. Then, follow the links below.

So, Staples was nice enough to throw in a license for CA Antivirus 2008, probably because they were trying to get rid of it (seeing as 2009 is shipping now). Regardless, I have a legitimate antivirus program thats valid until 2010, which is cool, and I’d like to give away 2 copies of it. Just read the article, and post a comment or two, and you’re submitted to win a copy (Valued at $39.99).
