  1. Time Magazine, still the largest circulated news magazine in the world, has a knack for creating lists of relevant topics that shape our lives. For years it has published annual Top-100 lists, but the magazine is world-famous for its annual Person of The Year (Previously known as Man of The Year) feature. So, it should come as no surprise that Time Magazine would release a list of the top most influential websites of all time. Time Magazine Top 15 Most Influential Websites of All Time (15) Match.com – Turning classified ads looking for love from the back pages of third-rate newspapers to the mainstream on the World Wide Web. Tens of millions of subscribers in 25 countries now use Match.com to find their perfect partner. (14) Reddit – Remember dial-up bulletin boards often run on Radio Shack TRS-80s and similar “leading edge cloud gear”? Well if you are of the millennial age you probably won’t know what those are. But Reddit is today’s version of the old dial-up BBSes (BBS – Bulletin Board System) with some social media prowess mixed in. (13) Pandora – This company embodies the world of today’s streaming content providers such as Netflix and Amazon. When it launched in 2000 with the most plain of interfaces, there were some streaming radio stations, but no user “influenced” content. The innovative concept of voting up or down on the streaming music and the “A.I.” of the service adjusting the content to the user’s liking is still found in many of today’s music streaming services. (12) Wikileaks – Founded by Julian Assange, a controversial figure in his own right, and still holed up in the Embassy of Ecuador in London, his website has become the political, governmental, and national security establishment’s worst nightmare. Loved or hated, Wikileaks is the first controversial selection in this list due to the nature of the work it does and the subversive and hacking methods it may employ to acquire that content. (11) The Pirate Bay – The second controversial entry on the list, advocates the concept of an open platform and giving voice to groups who challenge cultural and legal principles. Unlike Napster and other similar sites that shared music, video, or other digital content illegally, the Pirate Bay was the most famous “Search Engine” of the Peer to Peer (P2P) file sharing crowd. (10) Info.cern.ch – Who? That is probably the first question most ask. This genuinely groundbreaking site was created by Tim Berners-Lee (Father of the web) in 1989 at the CERN research center in Switzerland. Info.cern.ch is the home of the first website and still accessible in its original glory. It’s a bit basic by today’s standards, but it renders correctly on every size screen. Who would have thought that in 1989 Responsive Design was already in style? (9) eBay – eCommerce was not invented on eBay, but eBay made popular the open digital marketplace for sellers and buyers. People have built businesses on eBay from a hobby or from the need to sell a few items to the pay the rent. Regardless of how some sellers (and buyers) perceive the marketplace today, it is a pioneer in open eCommerce for all. To use a buzzword in tech, eBay democratized eCommerce. (8) Drudge Report – The website made famous by the Monica Lewinsky scandal, creates very little original content (it mostly links to other news outlets), has a design that has changed little since 1997, but it makes the list. One could argue that Matt Drudge popularized clickbait as the site relies on tantalizing headlines to maintain its Top 30 of all news sites ranking on Alexa. Provocation gets traffic, and the Drudge Report is the king of the hill with extended user engagement per visit than most other news sites can only dream about (as estimated by Alexa). (7) Yahoo – Remember when Yahoo was your go-to site to find information on the web? Unless your age is closer to collecting social security than your High School graduation, probably not. The internet was chaos, a collection of sites, many not interlinked. It is easy to take for granted today that Google, Bing, and even Yahoo will find you about anything you are looking for with a proper search term. But that wasn’t the case in 1994, and Yahoo built the first directory to help users find relevant web content. An outmoded idea today, but Yahoo created the building block that makes the Internet so successful. Search! (6) Craigslist – Looking for a job, a car, or used furniture in the Sunday classified section of your town’s newspaper. The nostalgia of it all. Craigslist brought that to a streaking halt by creating a digital version of classifieds. If free news content wasn’t enough to break the hometown newspaper, the loss of classifieds ads revenue was the final nail in the coffin for many. (5) YouTube – Founded in 2005 as a video sharing site, and in the early years often criticized for hosting illegally obtained content, it now makes global stars of content creators. While the production standard for “quality” content today rivals standard Television programming, it is still possible for anyone with a smartphone or a GoPro (action Camera) to load up content and get an audience. It even has made Millionaires out of living at home high school students! (4) Facebook – Two Billion Plus users can’t be wrong!? Or at least it is the new vice in our lives (it is better than cigarettes…). Facebook’s reach is staggering. Started as a College project to profile classmates, it is now the world’s most extensive social network. For better or worse, people use it because everyone else is on it, and Facebook is one the easiest ways to stay connected. We can thank Alexander Graham Bell for being able to talk to each other around the world. But no person has created more opportunity for “friendships” around the world with people they never physically met than Mark Zuckerberg. (3) Wikipedia – Remember going to the library to research a topic? Maybe you even bought an encyclopedia from a door to door salesperson. Wikipedia changed all that. As an open, crowdsourced collection of information, it has its flaws. For academic work, it is highly suspect, and articles often can have missing vital details, wrong context, or may even be completely false. But the immediacy of content updates and the millions of niche entries that it makes possible, keep it a perennial go-to site for users. Just make sure to confirm the References! (2) Amazon – Time Magazine proclaimed Jeff Bezos Person of The Year in 1999! Not even Time Magazine could have envisioned what Amazon has accomplished since then. The company has wholly changed shopping and buying behavior, uprooted retail, changed business plans, and became a force in streaming TV and Movies and is the first streaming service to garner Oscar Nominations (and winning two of them). The company has so much influence now that even a trademark application for a new service moves the stock market! To host and manage the content, the company built their own data and computing centers. Ironically, Amazon’s ever growing need for computing resources spurned a division called Amazon Web Services (AWS). And it is monetizing that business unit to third parties with a higher profit than its primary business of online retail. AWS now counts over 1,000,000 active users for websites and services by many leading brands. It has become so massive, that if there is a service outage, it can impact the average internet user’s access to sites and services. (1) Google – It’s a verb now! Technically the practice of verbing is called anthimeria; it is the ultimate form of brand value. Today we FedEx, Superglue, Photoshop, Taser, Velcro, TiVo, and still Xerox. On the internet, we Google, and the company turned Yahoo’s innovation (organizing the chaos) into an A.I. powered search for all information. How often do you get the feeling Google already knows what you are searching for? It has received and stores more user generated data than most anyone else on the Internet. Marketers try to game the system; companies build websites to be “Google” friendly, virtually no business that relies on the Internet believes it can do without Google optimization. And all its “side” projects such as Android, Gmail, G-Suite, Google Cloud, Google Photos, and so much more are designed to further the branding and integration into search, the bread and butter revenue stream for Google! An Impressive List That Transformed the World Time Magazine selected an impressive list of Internet pioneers. Just like its Person of The Year selection, that at times includes news noteworthy but very undesirable selections, this Top 15 lists has some “questionable” entries. Wikileaks and The Pirate Bay fall into this group, but for better or worse, their impact on the Internet deserve a spot on the list. Overall, Time Magazine did a great job selecting the Top 15 Most Influential Websites. One can argue about placement, and for sure a few may have been left off the list.
  2. Ash vs. Evil Dead star and producer Bruce Campbell is ripping into those who illegally download the STARZ TV series. Thirty-six years after the release of the first film in the Evil Dead trilogy, Campbell and his longtime collaborators Sam Raimi and Rob Tapert are still at it with Ash vs. Evil Dead, which will begin its third season February 25, 2018, on STARZ. http://static2.srcdn.com/wp-content/...h=500&fit=crop The first season debuted in 2015, 21 years after the third Evil Dead movie, Army of Darkness, ran in theaters, yet had little impact on the box office. Still, thanks to the cult following the film trilogy developed over the years, Campbell, Raimi and Tapert first backed a 2013 remake of the first film (directed by Fede Alvarez and starring Jane Levy) before realizing it was Ash who fans wanted the most. As a result, the square-jawed, wise-cracking Michigan native was not only brought back, but he recruited a couple young butt-kickers named Kelly Maxwell (Dana DeLorenzo) and Pablo Bolivar (Ray Santiago) to help battle a new enemy, Ruby (Lucy Lawless), and those pesky Deadites after he unwittingly unleashed hell by citing an incantation from the Book of the Dead. And while fans are clearly loving the no-holds-barred and unrated exploits of Campbell’s chainsaw-wielding, boomstick-slinging anti-hero Ashley J. Williams, the actor says a change needs to be made in the way viewers access the show. While piracy is a widespread concern across both the film and television industry, it appears to be hitting Ash vs. Evil Dead particularly hard, since Campbell is saying the show is on the verge of cancellation due to illegal downloading. Campbell is so passionate, in fact, about the survival of Ash vs. Evil Dead, that during a book-signing appearance in Sacramento, California, this week for his new book Hail to the Chin: Further Confessions of a B-Movie Actor, the actor-filmmaker didn’t mince words about fans who aren’t willing to watch the show the proper way – by subscribing to STARZ and thus paying to see it. According to 1428 Elm, a fan at the signing asked Campbell when he was going to “get some sugar” (alluding to a famous Ash line), and Campbell said, “February 25th on STARZ.” When Campbell asked who all in attendance had the STARZ app, which was greeted by claps and whistles, he said: http://static2.srcdn.com/wp-content/...h=393&fit=crop “4/5 of you can kiss my ass! Oh, why did they cancel Ash vs Evil Dead? Where did that show go? Right up into the air … You know what? Hey, you slackers out there. Ash vs Evil Dead is one of the most illegally downloaded shows! Why did it get canceled? Because you are all loyal criminals.” Anyone who follows Campbell, even casually, knows he’s a playful wiseass with press members and fans, so his declaration of war against piracy wasn’t aimed at all of his fans. Still, Campbell has a right to be ticked and go after those who are stealing the show, because, like any other form of scripted entertainment – especially a show that is as makeup and visual effects-heavy as Ash vs. Evil Dead – it costs a lot of money to make. Campbell’s right. If fans don’t want to pay for the show, it will simply go away. The problem is, once the concept dies a second time (the first time being with the end of the film series), chances are slim to none that Ash and the Evil Dead will ever come back to life. With any luck, fans who are illegally enjoying the show on the cheap now will wake up to that grim fact before the show premieres next year. Ash vs. Evil Dead season 3 premieres February 25th on STARZ.

    Former senior staff members of TehConnection can confirm that they are looking to build a replacement for TehConnection. We know there is still a lot of interest out there, we can also confirm we have an old copy of the database. There are no promises that this will eventuate into a new tracker site, but we have the means and development to make it happen. Our plan is to not be a gazelle clone so the site is being written from scratch. We do need some extra help to make this happen. One of these being that we are looking for a UX designer(s) with an artistic eye. If you can assist us, we would be keen to hear from you. If we are successful, we do have a tentative go-live date in mind. However, we will update on this at a later date. Thank you

  12. Video game piracy is a major issue (depending on who you ask), but sometimes the solution is worse than the problem; just ask anyone who has a game that uses the digital rights management (DRM) program Denuvo Anti-Tamper. Programs such as this are why some gamers tend to celebrate when video games are cracked (i.e., hacked so they can be pirated without any issues) or better yet released without anti-piracy programs. According to a post on NeoGAF, Bethesda Softworks’ upcoming survival horror game The Evil Within 2 has already been cracked, and the hackers did not find any Denuvo files. This news comes one day after a Reddit post confirmed the game will contain the program, but information is scarce, so for all we know the removal of the DRM program could only be a baseless rumor. On the other hand, Bethesda could easily have reconsidered the efficacy of the program after the news hit that hackers cracked the DRM of Middle-Earth: Shadow of War after twenty-four hours. And yes, Shadow of War used Denuvo as well. Prior to Shadow of War, the record for cracking a game’s DRM was five days, and the game in question was Resident Evil 7: Biohazard (it also used Denuvo). Apparently, this particular anti-tamper software doesn’t pose any challenge to hackers anymore. While Denuvo is meant to prevent gamers from tampering with games, many report the program does more harm than good, as it purportedly causes performance issues with numerous games, and players report that games with this DRM never fully uninstall and tend to leave files on computers. Even worse, Denuvo supposedly makes it difficult/impossible to play certain games offline. If these claims are true, I fully understand why gamers call the program draconian. If the rumor is true and The Evil Within 2 no longer has Denuvo, then The Evil Within 2 is the latest in a growing list of games that previously used the program, a list that includes DOOM, Inside, Titanfall 2, Hitman, and Mass Effect: Andromeda. However, Denuvo was removed from these games after they were released and cracked, which makes The Evil Within 2 one of the few games where the program was removed prior to release. Given the speed at which games with Denuvo are being cracked, game developers and publishers might turn away from this particular DRM program very soon.
  13. Popular Torrent Site Rutracker.org Shutdown: Many anti-piracy associations has come together in the previous 5 years to show their protest towards ban of torrent sites. Now, it went to another level as Russia has blocked the popular Rutracker.org torrent site from their search results as well. Russia is also planning to block any VPN (Virtual Private Network) services and is going to come into effect from November. Roskomnadzor has ordered search engines to remove torrent site Rutracker.org that was banned by the Russian government last year. Rutracker.org, which has been banned by Russia a couple of years ago over allegations of copyright violation, will now be unavailable in the google search results as well in India. The Russian government has amended its anti-piracy law to block torrent sites and President Vladimir Putin has signed it. Popular Torrent Site Rutacker.org Shutdown Will No Longer Appear in Search Results A protest started with all the biggies getting into the act by joining hands earlier this year. A conglomeration of 30 entertainment companies, including Netflix, HBO, Hulu, Walt Disney, Warner Bros, and Twentieth Century Fox have formed a worldwide coalition called Alliance for Creativity and Entertainment (ACE) to fight piracy. Google has removed the same website from its search result in India. It has been blocked as per the directions received from Department of Telecommunications, Government of India. Several attempts have been made by government authorities, agencies and organisations from different countries to shut down popular torrent sites over the years but the efforts have been met with only partial success. Though only one site was shutdown, there are many other website which can provide you the same thing that rutracker.org provides like the Pirate Bay, RARBG, 1337X, LimeTorrents, TorrentDownloads, Sky Torrents, IsoHunt, YTS.AG, Torrentz2, KAT, TorrentProject, and EZTV.
