A new sharing tool-Scour Xchange
Introducing Scour Xchange
There has been a lot of controversy about various file-sharing programs such as Napster, who is currently the subject of a lawsuit by the RIAA. The fact remains that as long as people have music, photos or anything digital, they will want to share it. Now, one of the more aggressive companies out there, Scour.net, has just come out with a similar piece of software to Napster but with some nice additions. So sit back and explore the newest file sharing product out there…The Scour Xchange.
Step1: What is Scour Xchange?
Scour Xchange is a software program for your computer that allows you to share music, pictures, and video with others.
Step2: Isn't this just like Napster?
No, this has more power than Napster, which handles only mp3 files (without tweaking it). Scour will find and transfer other music files such as WMA (a better compression scheme) and photos. Also, videos are included in the mix.
Step3: What about open source?
Just like the MP3 format was open and inexpensive to license, so too is Scour Xchange. Unlike Napster that does not publish their code, Scour encourages other developers to use the program in their projects. This is the first step in establishing a standard for file sharing.
Step4: Who is Scour.net?
Scour.net is partially funded by Michael Ovitz (former chairman of Disney) and has been very aggressive in acquiring new media companies. They are well funded, very reputable, and as of this writing, they mark the beginning of what we want the net to be.
