What is uTorrent doing? (I like it)

Just updated uTorrent, which I haven't done since probably January of this year.  First, as I installed it, it asked me if I wanted to download some album for free, a sponsor of uTorrent I'm assuming.  I clicked yes, I'd download it.  That in itself is a really cool idea, a far better idea than browser toolbars and the like.

I can see this working in better ways too, if they get a lot of sponsors they could give you a list of albums or shows you could download for free for promotional reasons.  Or perhaps a "One day only, get this album for free!" type of deal.  (I listened to the album by the way, or a little of it.  Not for me, but still a cool idea)

Added Ads

Logged into Blogger to write a post, which I will do next, I promise, but I got distracted from writing by looking at my traffic.  Just making a note for my future self as well as all of you, finally got around to enabling ads for this blog.  More of an experiment than anything else.

I had ads enabled on this blog on my old site, and never earned enough to justify getting any payout.  Not that it mattered, this blog is an occasional distraction more than anything else, and now it doesn't even cost me anything for hosting.

Just the same, if you've just stopped by and realized something is different, it's the ads.
