The extension DAA stands for a disc image file developed by the software program PowerISO. A disc image having DAA extension is utilized for compressing the entire content of a disc onto a smaller file which can be used easily for transferring data between different computers. The files having DAA extension may hold one or many files and they can be of different types – simple web graphics to executable program ones. For running DAA, you have to extract it using PowerISO. To use the file having DAA extension as a normal disc, you need to mount an image onto a blank disc. Place a blank CD into a CD writer and click the “Burn” button rather than “Extract”. The moment you place a CD in a disc drive, the computer automatically opens and runs its contents.
The file extension TORRENT stands for special files that can be used in their transfer. It allows users to connect to other users at the same time to download a single file Kickass torrent. You will get quicker download speeds as compared to other file transfer networks which work only between two persons. However, to use TORRENT files, you must download a TORRENT program first. Sometimes while downloading from the Internet you get files having TORRENT extension and they are tough to open. This is because a TORRENT file only points to the actual file you are attempting to download. If you make use of a torrent program for opening it, it will connect you to other users trying to download or upload a movie or a song at the same time.
Apparently they (whoever “they” are) are calling 2008 “The Year of the Mobile Torrent”, and if that’s the case then odds are Apple will soon be driving that bandwagon (or ambushing it) thehiltonian. A “torrent”, as it’s used here, refers to a communications protocol that allows computer users to share files. Or, put more familiarly, a torrent is a program that allows people to “do” P2P file-sharing.
That said, not only does it appear a P2P file-sharing client for the iPhone may be fast on the way, but in fact it’s already here, though currently in a format considerably inaccessible to most users – but no doubt not for long.
No, not all file-sharing is illegal. In fact, the only file-sharing that is against the law is the sharing of copyrighted files (like RIAA’s music and Hollywood’s movies – but that’s why we have iTunes, right?). For the sharing of all other types of files – personal memoirs, diary entries, and travelogues, recipes, photos, YouTube videos, etcetera, etcetera – P2P file-sharing is perfectly legal, and once you realize that, you can only expect that such facility for the iPhone is no less than imminent.
Gizmodo was the first to report on the innovation, declaring that a hacker who goes by the name of Core has just created the first native P2P client for the iPhone. Though the program – based on the popular Mac P2P client – Transmission – is still in the command-line stages (in other words: lacking in a simple user interface that the average techno-unsavvy consumer can operate), it is nonetheless a groundbreaking step on the path to peer-to-peer file-sharing between iPhones.
The amount of content worth sharing from iPhone to iPhone will also be stymied until a user-friendly GUI (graphical user interface) is incorporated into the design. Also a buggy hurdle for would-be users to be aware of is the incompatibility between P2P file-sharing in general and EDGE networks – currently the iPhone’s wireless connection of choice. So in order to use this or any torrent on the iPhone, you’ll have to use Wi-Fi.
