Duplicate Content nicely moving up at Digg

As usual I was digging the most interesting stories on the tech category page, what strikes me a duplicate entry which has the same heading, pointing to same link, submitted the same time, and more shocked to see that both the links got almost same clicks (81 and 83, at the time of writing this post) the only difference is that both are submitted by different user. They are nicely moving up along on the front page of the (tech section).

How this happen and why Digg algorithm didn’t noticed? What about the people who clicked those links? Didn’t any of them noticed duplicate content and make the links appeared in the most Digged section? Or did they done it explicitly or what?

Download the un-downloadable media from eSnips!

Imagine you were searching for your favorite mp3 songs, after digging for hours for mp3, at last you got the media you searching for on eSnips, but unluckily the download link is not there! The only thing you can do with the media is listen it online!
But wait here is a trick from calcuttaglobalchat.net, using which you can download the media from the eSnips, even if there isn’t any download link for that file!

Follows these 4 simple steps and your favorite mp3 is on your PC within few seconds.
URL example: http://www.esnips.com/doc/a9a4de34-97a5-42c4-8575-c71e96bd16d7/BACKSTREET-BOYS---Helpless-(-Unbreakable-)
1. Change “doc” to “nsdoc” in the URL - http://www.esnips.com/ nsdoc/a9a4de34-97a5-42c4-8575-c71e96bd16d7/BACKSTREET-BOYS---Helpless-(-Unbreakable-)
2. Remove the file name completely from URL - BACKSTREET-BOYS---Helpless-(-Unbreakable-)
3. Replace the file name with - /ts_id/1205795172796/ns_flash/file88.mp3
4. Hit the Enter button. Either you’ll have the download box appear on your screen or the media will play in media player (I am assuming your default player is Media Player)
5. If the file opens in Media Player, then go to file menu and click on “Save Media As…” and save the file on your PC
