And Now for Something Completely Different...

Did you know that a bunch of smart folks have put together a linux kernel that you can install on your iPod? Yup, that's right. It's old news, but because my blog is not old, I guess it's just news.

Anyway, you can turn your first generation iPod into an iPod video. It'll play games, video and run other functions. You don't need to go out a buy a new one if you want to watch Lost on your two inch screen. They are currently developing linux for the fourth generations and there is existing support for the previous three.

I've used it on my iPod and can vouch for it. Also, you retain the ability to boot your iPod up in its original flashware mode. It's pretty cool. Anyway, you can find the software and information here.
