Apple programmers are kinda bad
So Apple has started renting movies off iTunes. You've got 24 hours after making your purchase to watch the movie, then it expires.
Well apparently whoever wrote this piece of programming forgot about the oldest trick in the hacking book... you can set your computer clock ahead a couple years and keep the movies as long as you want.
Excellent work there, guys.
I'm sure they'll close this loophole with the first update, but the fact that it even exists at all is pretty embarrassing.
I'm a graduate from BYU-Idaho with a degree in Communications with a print journalism emphasis. I currently work as a test engineer for a software company. I've been married for seven years and have three kids.
