Charging twice for the same song

0

The day was coming where folks realized that with things like iPhones or Blackberrys that you should just be able to use your mp3 as a ringtone. Blackberry just lets you do it. In Apple’s case, they want $0.99 for the track and then another $0.99 to make it into a ringtone. So what can you do?

First you can use Funtastic which is a hack that lets you put anything into the ringtone directory.

“Dailytech”:http://www.dailytech.com/Hack+Discovered+to+Enable+Free+iPhone+Ringtones/article8782.htm reports that “Cleverboy” on “Mac Rumors”:http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=351495&ref=www.dailytech.com that you just take any AAC file (e.g., something names m4a if it is unprotected or .m4p if it is a protected song you bought on itunes) and rename it with a _.m4r_ extenison. It then appears as a ringtone. Kinda cool. Wonder how long that exploit will last.

According to “Lou”:http://www.frascogna.com/lou/?p=907 don’t download iTunes 7.4.1 as this fixes this exploit, so you’ll have to go back to using hacks like iFuntastic.
