is anyone really suprised by this? Why would any company want to put their music out there on the PSP when its getting hacked every update.

That wouldn't hqave anythign to do with it, I have seen iPods running hundreds of applications, runnign Linux and god knows what elses. The DRM software on the music/movies would be seperate from the OS on the PSP.
