A hacker has figured out a way to convert content intended only for the Amazon Kindle to formats that other devices can handle. The program is called Unswindle and was developed by I <3 cabbages. Used in conjunction with MobiDeDRM, the DRM protected content can be converted to other formats. This is done through the Kindle for PC application, and will allow users to convert legitimately purchased books for use on other devices. This could prove extremely useful for people who already have an e-reader and don't wish to purchase a Kindle to access its content.
