Lame-duck CompUSA employees go nilly-willy on store's website

It is a slow news day in the tech world, so I reach the bottom of the barrel to report...

Pretty audacious if you ask me. Get your mug shown all across a high traffic website and, if that's not enough, get your friends to do it too. Fun times, fun times.

Un-DRM your iTunes DRM tunes with Best Buy

Got a few (or many) DRM'd songs in your library, with no way to load them into any PMP you'd ever want? It's time to stick it to the music labels; we've got a tip for you.

A habitual poster of decent credibility in the MacNN forums has recently shared his experience with a non-iPod PMP: the Insignia Pilot. The included software pulls some neat tricks to allow you rock those DRM tracks in the stereo-bluetooth enabled little bugg'r, not thanks to iTunes Plus.

Now, if I could get confirmation that the Pilot woul sync with my Mac, I'd be a-thousand times sold.

Is that utopian world that Uncle Stevie promised us finally coming in 2008?

See a pattern here? This Mac centric blog in no way drinks or serves Kool-aid of any flavor.
