Hi,
My fav gizmo is an iPod.... the iPod has proven to be a versatile
little device. Want to know, wat else I can do with the iPod besides
listening to music. Let me know any add-ons to the iPod or any other
device which is advanced compared to an iPod.



Thanks..

iPods are way too big, and inefficient, IMHO � I am looking forward to the flash based pods this Christmas. I would buy one if they retain/improve all the existing features, but smaller, more memory, offer expansion slots and include a decent radio.

I have a 1GB flash based iRiver. It's real neat.. It has a FM tuner (that I havent tried yet).. but my favorite feature is the line in-line out thingy that lets you record music from any source

You might be interested in looking at Rockbox - an alternative firmware for the iRiver. I use it on my Archos Studio (bought before iPods were first announced), and there is no way I would go back to the original firmware.
