If the DMCA style notice and takedown (prevalent in the US) was not enough, an Irish ISP has now started walking those footsteps by banning file sharers. The Irish ISP Eircom will begin a three month program in which they will track down and hunt file sharers.
The IrishTimes writes,
Ireland is the first country in the world where a system of graduated responseis being put in place. Under the pilot scheme, Eircom customers who illegally share copyrighted music will get three warnings before having their broadband service cut off for a year.
This system sounds overtly lenient and allows file sharers to walk free even if they are marked and caught. Not only this, if they are found guilty of three such offences, their internet connections will be blocked only for a month!
Dtecnet, a company working with the Irma (Irish Recorded Music Association) has decided to provide Irma with a list of 50 IP addresses per week over three months. Any IP which is found guilty will be issued appropriate warnings.
This does not at all sound like a full proof plan but can mark a beginning. Let us hope Ireland is free of illegal file sharing soon.
A few days ago I had posted on how Hulu was blocking Flash 10.1 on Android 2.2 Froyo based devices due to licensing issues. However, for every block there is a workaround and it is the same with Hulu.
A recent post on Absolutely Android has instructions on how users can access Hulu on Android 2.2 Froyo running Flash 10.1. The detailed instructions walks you through changing the Android browser string to use a desktop UAString in order to trick Hulu into thinking that you are accessing it from a desktop.
The hack will only work on Android 2.2 with Flash 10.1 installed. If you do not have Android 2.2 yet, check out how you can root Nexus One to install Android 2.2, you can also download a manual update of Android 2.2 for Nexus One from official sources. You will also need to download Flash 10.1 for the Nexus One.

In the past couple of months, the smartphone OS market has been a hot topic. In that hot topic, Android has been the center of attraction, while the OS which is the most widely used in the world; Symbian was lost in the crowd. There is no doubt in the fact that the Symbian S60 v5 for touchscreen smartphones is the slowest of all and this is the reason for its criticism.
The arrival of Symbian^3 with N8 is destined to change things forever for Symbian. The Nokia N8 in a benchmark test against N97 showed its power. The N8 is 180% faster than the N97 and 54% faster than Omnia HD. In the FPC bench 3D test the result was 60fps and it never fell below it.

These results are very good sign for Symbian because its future depends on Symbian^3. Let us see whether it will be strong enough to compete with the power house Android.
