    I dunno if anyone read this or if it was on the main page, but people are bypassing the napster hack. All they do is use the programs that can record the sound your computer makes, and then go on their way i guess. Really good idea, for all you people who want to snag all the songs you want for $15.

    would it be noticed? if its playing directly through winamp and you are just capture what the audio sound slike i don't htink it would be THAT bad.

    i dont like that though its ewwish low quality ( btw lets say it didnt lose quality, how long would it take for you to do that to all the songs you downloaded say 2000 songs?) lol a long ass time

    Limewire is the best p2p program you can get, zero spyware, zero dodgy files... its awesome.

    Oh and the streaming loosing quality is not true, use replymusic, is records streams, cd quality and above.

    i've used it loads and created albums, from it, no quality loss, it all depends on the stream quality

    Limewire has slow speeds and takes forever to start downloading something.

    For you maybe. P2P is always going to be based on the sources for a file, and the end users configuration, it's impossible to berate a P2P service simply based on your own experiences.

    With regards to the Napster thing, it's nothing new. It's just unfortunate for the Napster guys that this incident went quite widely publicised.

    this hack works with all services so i don't know why they are making it a big deal for napster.

    sounds like a publicity scam to get more suckers to sign up for the service

    Only problem being that (some of) the general public have common sense.

    Most people are signing on for the free trial, downloading as much as they can, then cancelling the service. Lovely.

    Winamp has that disk writer thing, any file converts to wav.
    It worked for a windowsmedia7 DRM v1.0. One thing i noticed, it was done in realtime...whereas a conventional mp3 can be done in seconds.
    quality loss wouldnt be a big deal. you might lose some of the higher frequencies, who cares.
