It's difficult to measure the full cost of transportation, as it includes everything from gas/food to time to pollution to accidents and as many other factors as you can quantify. Shoes! Bike chains! New car! Cleaning off that mysterious scunge that collects on the edge of bus seats! The good news is that there are also positive effects, like increased health and the benefits that come with that, like (for many people) increased work productivity.

This chart gives a crude overview, but there's a deeper discussion of the quantification as well as a nifty tool to calculate costs and savings for particular commutes in Vancouver.

Warning: some calculations include use of Canadian health care, so that factor will be bafflingly more difficult to calculate for those of us south of the border by, for example, making cycling somewhat more expensive (because society there will pay for the medical care you need after an accident) and possibly less beneficial (because while much of the medical cost of air pollution is covered by Medicare and Medicaid in the US, some is not). It should be close enough for an interesting comparison.

Tribler BitTorrent Client To Become Anonymous, Version 6.3.1 Released: http://www.webupd8.org/2014/09/tribler-bittorrent-client-to-become.html

A year after the previous release, a new Tribler version was released recently and it includes new features, bug fixes as well as work towards anonymous streaming (using a built-in Tor-like network).

For those not familiar with Tribler, this is an open source, decentralized peer-to-peer client based on the BitTorrent protocol, supported by EU and Dutch research funding. The application includes features such as wiki-style channels, video-on-demand (watch videos while you download them) and more and is available for Linux, Windows and Mac OS X.

Like other BitTorrent clients, Tribler features a search box you can use to find content however, the search results come directly from other peers, without using a central server and this makes it immune to government anti-piracy attacks (the application will continue to work if the torrent trackers are pulled offline), claims an article from dailymail.co.uk.
