cateva date interesante despre torrente

There are several huge torrent files active at the moment, but the record goes to a torrent with a 746.70 GB collection of all 2010 World Cup soccer matches (~ 6GB per half). Downloading these torrents nowadays is a lot easier and cheaper than a few years ago. In 2001 when BitTorrent first went public the cheapest hard drive cost $238.00, and that was for just 40 GB. At the time, downloading a file of this size would have required a $4522 investment. Even in 2005 you would still had to invest $500 to get this much storage cheaply (5×160 GB).

StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty set the RTS record when it sold more than 1 million copies in 24 hours and went on to top the 3 million sales milestone in its first month. Now it appears Blizzard's sci-fi juggernaut has set a more dubious record: most pirated game. Charting the five torrent files that set the biggest records, TorrentFreak reports that the most popular torrent file for the 7.19 GB game has been downloaded 2.3 million times, setting the record for transfer of the most data at a ridiculous 15.77 Petabytes.
