“Your iPod is more like a miniature computer than you might think. After all, it has a screen, keys, storage, and an operating system. And just as with any PC, you can add new features, overhaul the OS, update the interface, and personalize it to your heart’s content.
“While you’re at it, why not fill it with content from the Internet and with movies ripped from your own DVDs? And hey, why shouldn’t you be able to copy your tunes off the player anytime you want? You can do all of that and more with these cool iPod hacks. They’re free, harmless (meaning that you can reverse or undo any of them without hosing your player), and guaranteed to help you get more fun and function out of your iPod. (We’ll identify which generations of iPod each hack works with.)”
