SuprNova, the world’s largest BitTorrent site until a few weeks ago when they closed the shop, has been working on a new de-centralized peer-to-peer BitTorrent service. According to eHomeUpgrade, they are planning to launch a public beta later this week.

Ed Felten at Princeton University has written a functional peer-to-peer file sharing application, with 15 lines of code – that’s right FIFTEEN lines. Quite amazing. It’s functionalities are of course quite limited, and is written to make a point of how hard it will be for any organization to stop file sharing.
In October Google launched their desktop search, which is a really fast and good tool. Microsoft launched it’s own desktop seach in November, and now Yahoo! has finally jumped on the same train and launched their version. It seems like they have made quite an effort and launched a pretty competitive product. Instant preview of search results (as you type) seems to be the best feature.
Videora 1.0 is a quite exciting little program, that combines the technologies RSS and BitTorrent. Apparently you can subscribe to your favourite shows, and have them downloaded automatically. I haven’t tried it out myself, but the idea is cool!
