iPod vs. Napster
However, I recently learned that Napsters new Napster-to-Go tracks apparently has been hacked! I read this post on the new Tech Fu weblog:
"I had a feeling that someone would come up with a means to hack the DRM from Napster-to-Go tracks and allow them to be saved as stripped files.
Via Gizmodo via BoingBoing via marv on record (and originating in club.cdfreaks.com) comes a method for signing up for the free trial of Napster and exporting via Winamp Plug-In (dare I say plug-out?) to WAV, and re-encoding the file to DRM-free MP3.
Look for Napster to try to play the patch-back game wherein they make it stop working intermittently as the DRM is re-cracked in a never-ending arms-race."
The original marketing graphic is shown on Napsters site here, but some think it should read like this:
Give them a couple of days :-) In the meantime, I HIGHLY recommend an iPod!
