iPod nano hack first step

iPod nano hack nixes an app, can’t add your own yet

We’re still a ways off from living our dream iPod nano watch scenarios, but here’s a small step in the right direction. As the story goes, on a flight home James Whelton booted up an iPod nano with a modified SprinBoard plist file that “removed” an app from the screens and replaced it with a blank space. What does this mean? Not much at this point, but it could provide a pathway to further hacking, jailbreaking, and yes, writing and installing those dream apps that make this a great wrist accessory.

New iPod Touch Has an 802.11n Chip

In 2001, the same year the Game Boy Advance was introduced, Apple brought the iPod to us (and not to universal enthusiasm, either). When I was doing some Google searching last night on Apple model numbers, I found something quite strange.

Who knew that there were first-generation iPods still for sale on store.apple.com! This is the very first iPod model, introduced in 2001. I don’t know how they ended up there, or why they’re selling them, but they’re shipping “within 24 hours” >and are available for $129.00….
