SERVICE: CNN LIVE VIDEO steals your bandwidth silently

Watch a live video, share your PC with CNN
By Brian Livingston

*** begin quote ***

Many people who watched live streaming video of the inauguration of U.S. President Barack Obama on Jan. 20 may not realize that their PC was used to send the video to other PCs, too.

*** end quote ***

Watch the CNN Live Video, and you too may get booted by your ISP.

This is worth a five minute read about the “dirty pool” being played on users and ISPs. (I’m no fan of ISPs, but in this case they are being taken advantage of as well.)

Argh!
