I have noticed a trend with video games lately; there has been much more emphasis placed on the music over the decades. So much so in fact that the game-play for two current franchises is secondary to the music.
I found something totally unexpected in my inbox this morning, a request from Trent Reznor for me to take part in a survey. I recently downloaded The Slip from their site and, as part of the process, filled out my contact information. I am positive that this is the reason I received the e-mail and not for attending a Nine Inch Nails concert way back in 1995.
I just read Miles Moen’s article on illegal music downloading and I have to agree with his assessment. If ISPs start tracking users’ behaviour too much and penalize them for activities that are illegal in many jurisdictions, users will switch to ISPs that do not pay as much attention. Many ISPs are willing to either not monitor or ignore online activity if it causes them to gain new customers or, at least, keep their existing customers.
