Default Getting Around Zune Sharing DRM

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://www.gizmodo.com/gadgets/portable-media/how-to-bypass-the-zunes-wifi-sharing-drm-217042.php' target='_blank'>http://www.gizmodo.com/gadgets/portable-media/how-to-bypass-the-zunes-wifi-sharing-drm-217042.php</a><br /><br /></div><p><em>&quot;We knew it would be done sooner or later, and now that we have the mod to use your Zune as a portable hard drive, a method to bypass the Zune's WiFi sharing DRM is finally here.&quot;</em> </p><p><img alt="" src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/zt/2006/gizmodo-bypass-drm-112806.jpg" /></p><p>I'm sure it will only be a matter of time before the Zune DRM is cracked, just like about all other DRM schemes.&nbsp; In the mean time, utilizing <a target="_blank" href="http://zuneboards.com/Offical-Tutorial-Released-Use-the-Zune-as-External-HD-AND-ADD-FILES-t-697.html">ZuneBoard's hard drive hack</a>, there is a workaround, albeit a rather cumbersome one, to send a DRM-less file using Zune's WiFi sharing.&nbsp; Check out the above Gizmodo article for the all the details.&nbsp; This workaround, basically tricking the Zune into sending a file as a photo, involves a little too much manual work for what can easily be accomplished, sans-Zune.&nbsp; Since both ends require a PC and the hard drive hack before the file is usable, what's the point?&nbsp; I guess W?BIC is the answer!&nbsp; </p>
