Last week we asked you about BitTorrent, and whether you use it or not. If you read last week’s poll you already know that BitTorrent is not illegal, only some files are illegal, and there are many legal ways to use the protocol. Legality aside, it seems that a large number of you are going the same way when it comes to BitTorrent. Which way is that?
Out of 510 votes in total, these are the results: 8% never use BitTorrent, 10% use BitTorrent only when there is no other alternative, 25% use it from time to time, and 56% of the readers who voted use BitTorrent often. 1% voted that they don’t know what BitTorrent is. They have some catching up to do!
Full results and this week’s poll after the jump.
Wonder how people are using BitTorrent? Don’t forget to check out last week’s comments for some interesting insights, and especially last week’s best comment by Scott M, who won his pick on one of our awesome geeky t-shirts. Yay!
This week’s poll question is: Are You Getting Yourself A Chromecast?
This week’s news have yet again been dominated by Google, and this time with the release of the Chromecast. The Chromecast is a $35 HDMI stick that lets you stream videos and music from Netflix, YouTube, Google Play and Chrome to your TV, using your existing devices as remote controls. The Chromecast competes with Apple TV, and in a way with all other streamers, and comes with a much cheaper price tag. So are you going to buy it?
What’s there to like or dislike about the Chromecast? What are some good reasons to buy it? And to avoid it? Share your thoughts below!
