One woman actually asked me if I could help her pay her rent and she would be willing to be a regular "thing" if I could do that for her. Then maybe they wouldn't come to the forums and complain how nobody wants to date them or how all women are stuck up and never talks to them.
The Whisper mode, meanwhile, is meant to distinguish Bleep from the likes of Snapchat, with most ephemeral messages never truly deleting messages from their servers, even when they have been removed from people’s phones.
Whisper — which you activate by clicking on a small eyeball in the corner of the screen — lets a message live for only 25 seconds.
Friends, meanwhile get added by way of your address book, email, mobile number or Bleep key.
The company says that the logo it’s designed for Bleep — a folded note that looks a bit like an origami bird — is meant to evoke how people used to send messages to each other in the old days.
To take things up one more notch, today Bit Torrent is bringing the product out of alpha, launching a version that will work on i OS and adding new features, such as a new “Whisper” mode, which people can use to send messages that can self-destruct after 25 seconds and are impossible to save or copy, even with screenshots.
The news comes at an interesting time for Bit Torrent: the company has been on a steady path over the last couple of years, launching a range of products like its Bundles, Sync and Maelstrom built on its P2P architecture that move Bit Torrent away from its older, earlier image as a hotbed of piracy and illicit content sharing, and closer to an idea of presenting a credible (and possibly more secure) media business platform.
You can watch the company's announcement video below.
Bleep, an encrypted text, picture and voice chat app built on peer-to-peer architecture by the P2P company Bit Torrent, has picked up over 200,000 users on Windows, Android and Mac while in its alpha version.
But at the same time the company has been firming up its business in other, more difficult ways: specifically, it laid off around 40 employees in April.
“We’ve realigned resources based on a regular evaluation of the business,” the company told Tech Crunch in response to questions about the events.
Plentyoffish dating forums are a place to meet singles and get dating advice or share dating experiences etc. LOL The next time u go on a date with a woman and they suggest P2P, get ur phone out, look for an escort service, and on a napkin, write the number down and pass it along to ur date.
