Useful free stuff

Project Gutenberghttp://www.gutenberg.org/

This is the biggest online archive of free ebooks: it contains over 40,000 titles – more than 100,000 if we consider all the partner sites. All these ebooks are free and completely legal: either their copyright has expired or their rights’ holder has committed not to enforce them. You can find the great majority of all the classics – in their original language and sometimes in translation. If you have an ebook reader now you know how to fill it without ruining your finances.

Jamendo http://www.jamendo.com

A great website where you can find, listen to and download original music for free. It has more than 400,000 songs, all of which are available under a Creative Commons licence. What else do you dare to ask?

BitTorrent Bundlehttp://bundles.bittorrent.com/

Here’s a spectacular new service offered by the guys who create and distribute the most used torrent managing software. Bundle is a very simple website where you can obtain for free the last works of several artists, ranging from Madonna to the least known beginner. And the best part is that the RIAA cannot say anything about it.
