And finally... The ALF (Acoustic Liberation Front) strikes again:  Nutzipper, a Swedish clever hacker, claims to have successfully hacked not only the DRM scheme of the Zune, but also its WiFi-based music sharing aspects. The hacker's "Zukebox" allows a Zune owner to browse and download any songs from any other WiFi-enabled Zune's in a given area. It then strips the pilfered MP3s of their DRM restrictions. Report (By the way: There is no such thing as ALF; we have just invented it.)
