iPod development fun

It’s been a while since I’ve written anything about my tech exploits, so I thought I’d just mention a bit about one my latest endeavors. I got an iPod nano a couple of months ago and recently discovered http://www.ipodlinux.org. This is a truly amazing project! I’ve gotten my nano to play full-speed, full-color video clips as if it were the new iPod Video. I’ve played chess on it, rendered fractals, and taken notes. I’ve also begun doing a bit of development for it myself, just to scratch an itch, so to speak. I’m actually cross-compiling my own kernel as I write this. If you have an iPod, I encourage you to give it a try, at least if you are a bit technically inclined… it’s not for the novice. (At least not yet)
