Read News and More

Use the iPod’s built in Notes feature to turn your iPod into an information machine, carrying news, stock quotes, notes, and other scraps of information around with you.

The iPod is much more than a music device. With some nifty hackery, you can transfer loads of data to your iPod. If you’ve followed the manual, you’ve probably already transferred your Palm Contact and Calendar items. With this hack, we will add News, Weather, Movies, Stocks, Horoscopes, Lyrics, Text, and Directions to that list.

If you’re on a Mac, Pod2Go (http://www.kainjow.com/pod2go/; donateware) is for you. If you’re on a Windows box, check out iPodSync (http://iccnet.50megs.com/iPodSync/; $13.95; trial version available), which does many of the items covered in this hack. iPodSync works in a fashion similar to Pod2Go; we won’t discuss it directly in this hack, but the discussion of Pod2Go should give you plenty of info to get started.
