I always love reading about ingenious methods to accomplished hobbled tasks. If you’ve ever tried to take a screenshot (Command-Shift-3 or Command-Shift-4) when you have the Mac OS X DVD Player running, you know that it is verboten, but the author of this post from Random Tech has the answer–do it in the Terminal. Evidently, Apple forgot to apply its DVD screenshot dampening DRM to the very simple Unix functions that allow you to take a quick pic of your favorite flick. Thanks for the tip!
