BitTorrent has launched its official search tool, the one we told you about the other day. I tried the search tool out and it seemed to work remarkably well. Obviously, I can’t help but wonder how long it will take the RIAA / MPAA to actually use this tool against BitTorrent or if they will file a barrage of lawsuits in response to this new tool. Make sure you read BitTorrent’s TOS:
BitTorrent Goes Stealth:
The creator of BitTorrent has tweaked the program to eliminated the need for web site hosting of centralized files known as trackers. The new trackerless BitTorrent can be found here.
While BitTorrent’s Cohen said the tracker removal feature is part of his ongoing effort to make publishing files online "painless and disruptively cheap," the move is only one of several designed to remove BitTorrent’s dependence on centralized trackers.
