PyMusique Strikes Back

Not too long after PyMusique was released, Apple "fixed" the hole by requiring customers to use iTunes 4.7. It's been 3 days and DVD Jon has already reversed engineered the 4.7 encryption and has updated PyMusique to work again. How long till Apple fixes it again?

iTunes Store Songs Sans DRM

DVD Jon iTunes Jon has struck Apple again (mirror here), this time it's called Pymusique. Basically it lets you buy songs (or redownload already purchased songs) from the iTunes store without any DRM or restrictions. While it breaks Apple's terms of service, it probably is legal, but you can be sure Apple's gonna fix this hole soon.

Drug Paraphernalia For Charity?

Have you ever wanted to own lab glass from Dr. Alexander Shulgin? How about blotter acid signed by Timothy Leary? Or maybe some LSD blotter art signed by Annie Sprinkle's nipple (pictured below)?

M.A.P.S. (Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies) is doing a charity auction to raise some money. M.A.P.S. helps companies to gain approval for testing psycoactive substances, and is one of the few organizations trying to give the government a reality check.

"MAPS is a membership-based research and educational organization focused on the development of medical, therapeutic, spiritual, and creative uses of psychedelic drugs, MDMA (ecstasy), and marijuana. MAPS helps researchers to design, obtain governmental approval for, fund, conduct and report on psychedelic and marijuana research."

Give them all your money you stoner.

iGetMovies

One of my biggest pet-peeves on the internet is movies or trailers that are view only, and don't let you save them to your drive. There are almost always ways to trick your browser into downloading them, but they take a lot more effort than some cheesy trailer is usually worth. Enter iGetMovies (warning: french website). A free application made in Applescript studio, it copies the movie from quicktime's cache and saves it as a viewable quicktime movie on your desktop. This works for any quicktime movie in Safari or on the iTunes store.

3.5" Drive connected to an iPod

What do you when your iPod hard drive takes a dump??? If your anything like this guy, then you hand build an ATA cable to connect a 3.5" hard drive to your iPod. Definitely not for the solder-unfriendly, but having a 250gb iPod on my desk would be damn cool.

This swedish guy found a use for the cheese-grater front of the G5 tower. His site is in swedish, but here's a translation.
