Back-to-school special: iTunes hacks!

Programmers turn iTunes into a tool for searching and downloading MP3s over fast networks.

A group of programmers has retuned the iTunes software so you can search for and download MP3 files from people on your network (if they're also using iTunes). At the average college, that's probably, oh, seven billion billion tracks available at any given time. Apple and the record labels aren't going to be happy about this one.

The software is called OurTunes, and follows a similar concept called MyTunes that got blocked by Apple a few months ago.
