Late last year I posted information about a new HD-DVD decryption utility that was released which was capable of decrypting a AACS (Advanced Access Content System) protected HD-DVD discs as long as title keys were available. Many were skeptical. Some pointed to the technical problems of extracting title keys. Some thought that the MPAA would crack down hard on this. Now, less than a month on and several fully-featured HD-DVD movies are available for download and title keys are available for about a third of all HD-DVDs currently for sale. It's time to declare the system in tatters.

Today is a day of choices ... what applications do I need to install on my Mac?
Grrr! I still can't get my MacBook to connect to any wireless network.
A quick update to my MacBook Pro Experience.Last night I decided to see how good the MacBook Pro is as a DVD player and bought out my "default" movie - Aliens. Not only do I enjoy this movie each time I watch it, I felt that it was a great movie to test out the the system's screen, sound system and the software DVD player.
