Turn Google into your own personal (free) Napster

Posted on October 15, 2006. Filed under: Advice, Browsers, File Sharing, Google |

Google is good for so many things, among which is searching for all sorts of files, including MP3’s. Here’s a quick primer:

-inurl:(htm|html|php) intitle:”index of” +”last modified” +”parent directory” +description +size +(wma|mp3) “Nirvana”

Just substitute the term “Nirvana” for any band or singer you might be looking for, and your search will lead you to open indexes that contain downloadable music files.

Share large files with GigaSize

Posted on September 5, 2006. Filed under: File Sharing |

Web site GigaSize is another large file email service that lets you upload and share files up to 1.5 GB for free.

Of course we’ve seen services like this before, for example Dropload, Mailbigfile, and most notably YouSendit (however YouSendIt’s service has become more of a pay service, allowing only 100 MB free uploads), but GigaSize is the best I’ve seen so far. If you register for a free account, you can send a file up to 1.5 GB and GigaSize will store it on their server for a minimum of 90 days (if you don’t want to register for an account, you can upload 1 GB and are guaranteed at least 45 days).

Right now it looks like GigaSize is your best large file sharing method (short of P2P).
