Norwegian hacker cracks Apple's music streaming technology
The Norwegian hacker famous for defeating anti-copying software on Hollywood DVD's has apparently struck again. This time Jon Johansen has unlocked Apple Computer's AirPort Express. His software allows use of the wireless music streaming technology outside the Apple corporate family. San Francisco attorney Fred von Lohmann -- from the digital rights group the Electronic Frontier Foundation -- sees the issue as tinkering, not copyrights.
He says consumers wouldn't buy a car with the hood welded shut so they couldn't adjust the engine. Johansen has defiantly named his Apple cracking software -- So Sue Me.
