We just wanted to stop by and let you know we appreciate all your support. So to keep you up-to-date here is some great news!We’ve introduced an auto updating function into Aurous for all platforms, we’ve also built native bundles for OSX and Windows. Linux x64 support is here as well!Remove your currently installed version and head over to the site to grab the latest version. After that, enjoy future updates without ever needing to redownload again.We hope to make Aurous your first choice for music.” so October 10, 2015 Could someone please find out / report whether they are sourcing their music from YouTube or any other paid entity? And if so, if YouTube or whomever would be paying for these “offsite” plays? Would it work like embedding? Guest October 10, 2015 They’re sourcing from pleer.com, VK, and mp3with.co from what I can tell. The metadata (mostly art, but sometimes track/album/artist names) is sourced from last.fm. There doesn’t seem to be any torrenting going on, like with popcorn time. Julia October 10, 2015 damn windows isnt letting it run and after a force start it shows a trojan :/ wtf Versus October 10, 2015 The creators of this unethical project apparently have little sense of irony:A copyright notice with “all rights reserved” right on the front page. They want protection from the same law which the entire project violated. Paul Resnikoff October 10, 2015 So happy you noticed that! What a complete lack of self-awareness, right? This reminds me of when a band started selling Napster shirts back around 2000 or so (maybe it was Offspring?), and they got threatened with a lawsuit from Napster for trademark infringement. GGG October 12, 2015 I don’t think I’ve ever wanted to punch someone in the face more than these Aurous dudes with that one. Come home to roost October 12, 2015 If you notice also… it has their address as well. Nice place to start some “head-hunting” searches… Pontius pilot October 10, 2015 Can’t wait to sue these scumbags. Come home to roost October 12, 2015 No suing.. just heads on pikes… Jon Hockley October 11, 2015 Aurous.me shares the same IP address (126.96.36.199) as this website http://abcmalayalam.com/5225/the-hobbit-the-desolation-of-smaugI tried to test the app on MAC osx but it failed. Could be something to do with Java.

I consider this to be an epic fail. Why anyone would leave Spotify Free for this is beyond me. Anonymous October 11, 2015 Yeah, this is a joke. wtf. t cooke October 11, 2015 Warren Buffet talks about incenticizing people. Maybe we could incenticize people to opt out of access to piracy sites through their isp. If isps’ offered a voluntary opt-out, it would give the consumer a simple way to resist temptation and they could be rewarded with a rebate to apple music or netflix. tcookemusik October 11, 2015 Splendid riddled and dumb Cuddled fumbled and redDeath blood insteadThe web has spawned the cheer We cheer you oh pub strummer Fabricated at the other end Process cheer envelopedScorn has appeal The meek have the will Spread year thy fry tight Succumb yum truck YetMood skips and portrays Lines skip the light Movement enherits the light Forshadow the plightWonders set afar Fortune is mylar Fabric is constant Tim Wood October 12, 2015 I love machine-generated poetry. It’s so Dada.
