Robocops to roam the streets of San Jose

A hacker, Labba, and his buddies have cracked the Kindle’s ebook DRM, essentially allowing folks to extract the text of Amazon’s AZW files into a PDF for viewing on any reader. The hackers have reverse engineered the ebook code and very close to a formal, software-based solution.

It took the hackers only nine days to strip the DRM although there is no formal piece of software for the hack. But before you hack, think about it: these are ebooks. Do we really need to steal every living thing under the sun?
