The Wait Is Over: Napster In Your Pocket

One of the most talked about feature of Microsoft's Zune is the wireless sharing of music, and the overly-strict DRM policy of 3 days or 3 plays.

Of course, deep down, we know it is a feature that is calling out for hacks. And one very simple hack has arrived. You can now trade any files wirelessly and DRM-free using Microsoft's Zune by fooling the MP3 player think that you are simply trading large photos. (Photos are exempted from the DRM scheme.)

This hack, unfortunately, stills demand considerably efforts from Microsoft's customers. But you bet other clever minds are similarly hard at work in hacking the Zune.

Maybe Microsoft has been expecting this all along? Oooh, sorry, RIAA. We didn't know our software is so easily hacked...
