Resistance is Futile

The next revolution in p2p is here.

If you're a Borg, you'll know what that means. And if you're a label, you've been warned.

Because EarthStation5 is looking for beta testers for its new ES5 p2p software which, it promises, "Protects Users' Privacy and Provides Complete User Anonymity."

"ES5 is the 'Holy Grail of File Sharing' because it provides anonymity for people sharing and downloading files," says ES5 president Ras Kabir. "Users no longer have to be concerned about what they are sharing, or with whom they are sharing because there is complete anonymity."

He says his brainchild uses SSL Encryption to stop third parties (Who dey? heh) from monitoring users' file sharing activity and provides users with IP address anonymity through proxy servers.

"ES5 is the only P2P program that integrates seamlessly with PGPDisk (a free security program) that lets users fully encrypt the contents of their 'Shared Media Folder' so no one other than the user can view the contents of their files, such as a spouse, parent, child, employer, school administrator, or IT department," states Ras.

AND ... ES5 dynamic, random ports and encrypted UDP search protocol, "ensures that no one, including the users' ISP, can block or throttle a user's ES5 file sharing activities or even know the person is using ES5. All file sharing activities look like normal web browsing."

Deadly.

Laid out as a galaxy, ES5 features user planets with no hard links to the network. Instead, they, "float in a galaxy, a virtual, distributed super-base of file information. To find a resource, you explore instead of searching."

ES5 also has password protection and the ability to preview a download. Additionally, it supports all types of files - not just music and video - and has integrated media management to organize and play music and video files easily.

"You can get lost in ES5 and not come up for days," an ES5 beta tester is quoted as saying. "I've got two movies coming in while I'm watching a third and downloading music at the same time. The movie audio is playing in one ear, and I'm sampling songs in the other."

ES5 automatically removes missing files from returning search results so only files that are readily available are shown. ES5 has incorporated all the advanced P2P file sharing technologies found in other clients including auto-resume downloads, metadata support, previewing and more.

Nor, swears Ras, does ES5 bug users with pop-ups or spyware and, "To attract a large user base quickly, ES5 has integrated the web's most popular services yet, charges no usage fees. Its free dating service allows users to meet other 'Life Forms' with similar appetites and 'download' them into their own life."

ES5 also has free text/audio/video chat system so up to seven users can chat in the same room with full audio and video capabilities meaning they can see each other in real time.

Like Kazaa's Sharman Networks, EarthStation5 is incorporated on the South Pacific Island of Vanuatu, as well as in Palestine.

"To avoid the potential for litigation that has dogged the makers of Kazaa, and Grokster and wiped out companies such as Napster, AudioGalaxy and Scour, EarthStation5 has its offices and its infrastructure in the West Bank and Gaza City, where it is not illegal to develop and distribute peer-to- peer file-sharing technology," says Ras, adding that ES5 is made up of, "Jordanians, Palestinians, Russians and Israelis of all faiths.

"Believe it or not, we all love and respect each other. We work and play together. On many occasions our families eat at the same dinner table. We trust each other and are very close friends. As a group, the most important things in our life are our families and, of course, our friends.
