DVD movie encryption broken From a Wired News article: "Thanks to a gaffe by one of the decryption software's licensees, a band of Norwegian programmers made it possible to make a perfect copy of a DVD film with none of that pesky encryption."

New Street Atlas coming Larry Lloyd reports that a new Street Atlas version 6 for the Mac should ship by the end of November. He adds: "According to their order desk, it has all the features of the Windows version 7 except voice recognition, points of interest and road construction rerouting. The map database has been updated. It will work with the current TripMate receivers. There is nothing on their web page as yet but you can place advance orders by calling their consumer sales department at 800-569-8313 and pressing option 2."
