As with most cinematic releases, the movie will be available as a Usenet file or BitTorrent, however Eastwood is celebrating the release by – get this – attempting to set a Guinness World Record for the most software downloaded in 24 hours…finally Hollywood is learning to embrace DRM-free digital downloads and user-generated piracy! I wonder if Eastwood’s next movie Release Candidate will also be similarly released into the wild?
Unfortunately, there doesn’t seem to be much in the public domain abou…oh, um…I may have misunderstood some of the facts <gulps> of Om‘s briefing…
M’kay…lemme start over…
I guess everyone’s aware (thanks Mike!) that tomorrow sees the long-awaited release of Mozilla‘s Firefox 3, the third browser in the popular series of open source browsers, including (um) Firefox 1 and (ahem) Firefox 2?
Mozilla is celebrating the release by – get this – attempting to set a Guinness World Record for the most software downloaded in 24 hours. All you need to do to help contribute to the record is download Firefox 3 during tomorrow’s Download Day and pledging that you’ll do so at the official world record site.
So far 1,385,062 individuals have pledged to download our ubiquitous foxy friend, including 56,300 of my fellow Britons! Accompanying the launch and the record attempt are a global series of launch parties – check for local parties at Mozilla Party Central.
Most importantly – and I can’t stress this enough – Think In Russian!
