Google It seems like the content industry has managed to score another hit in its 'fight' against piracy, and this time, it's a big fish. Announced a few weeks ago already, Google has started censoring its auto-complete and instant features for an arbitrary set of search terms - such as 'bittorrent', 'torrent', 'rapidshare', and any terms derived from those (e.g. 'ubuntu torrent' is censored as well).

This is actually quite funny. For instance:

Slackware -> load of suggestions
Slackware b -> load of suggestions
Slackware bi -> load of suggestions
Slackware bit -> umm, blank.

Don't you dare to lookup how to setup your serial port bitrate. Your activities are monitored and will be reported. PIRATE!
