"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."
I'm sure it will only be a matter of time before the Zune DRM is cracked, just like about all other DRM schemes. In the mean time, utilizing ZuneBoard's hard drive hack, there is a workaround, albeit a rather cumbersome one, to send a DRM-less file using Zune's WiFi sharing. Check out the above Gizmodo article for the all the details. 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. Since both ends require a PC and the hard drive hack before the file is usable, what's the point? I guess W?BIC is the answer! :)
