    LAME! No ones making you buy from apple, plus iPods are the coolest mp3 player of all, which is why they're popular to begin with... you dont see junk getting popular (except windows...LOL)...

    yeah, it's old news. Apple will take action for it soon. I don't care this guy cracked DRM or not. for consumers, with popularity of ipod, itunes, it's not really matter. when you purchase music, burn to DVD, CD then reencoding to other player. what's the interesting is how many devices support AAC nowadays? so cracked fairplay DRM is not real deal at all. in order to work with it, you must reencode. just waste your time. just use dann ipod. what a simple.

    I believe that was the point of cracking Fairplay - so that other players besides the iPod could play DRMed AAC files as well as other vendors (not just iTS) being able to sell DRMed AAC files to iPod users

    In the end it's no different than other ways people currently circumvent iTunes DRM.
