Google: The ultimate bittorrent search engine

Google indexes everything on the web. You can find just about anything, provided you give it the right criteria to look for.

This is my favorite one right here, search google for:

Blah filetype:torrent

where you repleace Blah with the movie/tv show/album/pr0n that you want to get.

Google dutifully spits out a list of torrents that it can find and download.

Try it, it works.

So this is what I am saying to you: Google for your torrents and lets give the MPAA a target that bigger than it can handle!

What I want people to do:
  • Use google torrent all the time!
  • lobby torrent sites to let google index their torrents.
  • Spread the word about googletorrenting!
  • Make me a firefox extention to add google torrent to the search box (to add the filetype:torrent bit automatically)

Come, friends, the revolution starts here. Googletorrent, it is the way forwards!

could google get done for enabling the download of illegal material by making it easy to point people in the direction of torrents?

I don't think they are any more responsibile than someone who sells an ax to an ax murderer, or someone who gives that murderer directions to the store to buy the ax, or to the victums house (assuming that they have no idea what the guy is planning to do).

Been doing that a while now.

Found the Katamari Damacy OST that way, as well as a batch torrent for dual audio OGM for Onegai Teacher.

Remember that Google store a lot of info, not only the ip, of any click.

Phew, let's face it, Google is just another evil corporation. Their services are nice, but that doesn't change the fact that they are ignoring everything related to privacy.

yes, they are hysterical, but still the main points are relevant. Google (and many other companies like Amazon) ARE collecting enormous amounts of info without giving the end user any sort any rights to know what is being used for what.

I dunno what you mean (I'm too tired to think in English right now)
but if a company with the size and importance of Google, Inc. (or Microsoft) has a very vague privacy policy that doesn't tell people anything there is a reason to be worried.

A vague privacy policy of a company that is creating secret alorithms that sort and classify big amounts of information internet sounds unpleasant to me.

I'v been using google to find files before I'd even heard of bit torrent, just search for: artist "index of" mp3 and you'll usually turn something up. add apache into the string if you're getting too many irrelevant hits.

I don't know how big google's assets and revenues from EU countries are, but my guess is they're quite substancial

And under the EU privacy act, it's against law to hold allmost any information identifying an individual without that persons written accept...

Should google have that information anyway, and anyone from goverent to organisation to company actually use it against you, you can take it to the EU court in Luxemburg and win it without any substancial difficulties at all...

Should google then choose not to abide to EU regulations, they would be forced out of buisness in worlds biggest and most important market. Not good for the share holders of Google inc.

You can find more information on the law here:

I think i know the rules better than you. Everyone knows about google, and I'm just pointing out one use of it. People can search for whatever they like, warez or not.

Its like pointing out where to get good kitchen knives, not like telling you to stab somebody.

Google evil? could you explain why they are evil or do you think every successful company is evil like the rest of the stung-out nerds in the world.

I like all the services google offer, right now I'm even making some money with AdSense. But their way to collect info is problematic. I'm not irritated by the Ads shown in Gmail if they would just run these ads without storing info about the ads shown.

Sorry, it's called accountability and if you think that a company can sell ads and not be held accountable for it's numbers then you are living in a dream world. They have to store information about the ads and the page they are displayed on so that adsense works.

I really don't see the big problem. Then again I am not a stickler about believing I live in a world where I think I am or should be anonymous.

Now look. I do understand that they've got to collect info on what kind of ads get clicked in which part of he world at what times of the day and so on. I don't mind Gmail collecting info on what kind of ads are being displayed etc. Really, I like targeted ads, becouse I've find interesting sites every weel by clicking google ads and I like the feature of Amazon's A9 to save my searches to my account data to show interesting products on the Amazon front page.

But I do mind that it seems like Google has the right to save everything that is being sent and written in gmail. And if I'd happen to use an ISP with nondynamic IP:s I wouldn't want google, or any other company to use that info, except online games and web forums. I dislike all data collecting as long as nothing nice is given to me in return.

I'd rather use the word "problematic" than "problem" conserning data collecting on the web.
