    Default What is iMesh.exe for?


    Now I was watching the TV, a famous TV hospital series (I don't know the
    original English name), and they had a song, a sad Aleluia I had heard
    previously, which I liked but I did not know which one it was. I'm not a
    /modern/ music fan, that's clear :-)

    I had asked a friend about this song - he has a wall filled to the ceiling
    with CDs -, but as I can't sing, even less by email, I got no answer. :-}

    I'm a newcomer to having easy internet access, so it did not occur me to do
    this earlier. It is also difficult for me to catch English lyrics, it is
    not my first language. But this time I was sitting in front of my computer,
    and I did catch the first phrase, helped by the Spanish subtitles:

    Now I've heard there was a secret chord
    That David played, and it pleased the Lord

    and of course, Google found it in a second (I'm still surprised by this
    feat). It turns out that it comes from Leonard Cohen, but the popular,
    recent, version appeared in Shreck, from Jeff Buckley. So I hit a place
    that offered a download, which only turned the iMesh.exe file mentioned in
    the subject; plus a link to play it (at http://www.jango.com/), which
    worked fine. I even got a flash video (a still video).

    So what is that iMesh.exe file for?

    I ask here because I guess there will be Windows users around who may know.
    I don't want to download the song - anyway, the mpeg file is sitting in my
    firefox HD cache, an unintended side product of listening to the song
    online ;-)

    [...]

    Gosh. I'm dumb. Didn't I say that internet is still news for me? Just
    googled for iMesh.exe and found some info. Some people say it is a spyware.
    I'm lucky to be a Linux user ;-)

    And wikipedia says it is a legal, pay-p2p network (in NA only).

    Anyway, I'm posting this, I'm not keen not dumping the post after some
    minutes writing it O:-)

    heh! if you go to imesh.com you can download the latest version:
    iMeshV10.exe

    which is (obviously) an executable which will (i guess) install a
    MS-windows program which is said to be a "legal" way to get music
    without paying for it..

    but my guess is it is just as legal as walking into a music store,
    sticking a CD in your pocket and walking out, uncaught..

    Wikipedia says you have to pay. There is a subscription, but only if you
    are in the US or Canada. Else, you are limited to the free content (which
    is absurd, if they try to put walls in the prairie the bisons will bring it
    down in no time).

    The site I bumped into didn't ask (linux -> no exes). And anyway, I could
    play on line anything I wanted, which left in my cache a few mp3 files,
    free of charge, as a by-product ;-)

    (I'm the type that buys music in shops, or just listen to the radio)

    I ran into a new tactic on a couple of songs on youtube today. The video is about five to ten seconds, with the message

    YouTube has removed this video due to copyright infringement. Click the link in the description to listen to the song and get the lyrics.
    The link is to abbeylyrics.com. Before proceeding, you must agree to give them access to your Facebook account. They identify themselves as a "non-spammer" site. I thought this was funny, but I'm sure a few people will be upset.
