Comment real ipod hacks (Score 1) 193

What I'd like to see is an update to the firmware with some real apps. I wouldn't mind giving up breakout if it could be replaced by, say, a text file reader. Apple or any decent embedded systems hacker should be able to do it. It's likely not been done just based on time-to-market and strategy reasons, not technical ones.

Admittedly, the iPod is not a heavy-hitter in the RAM department, but if you can play breakout, you obviously have the system calls to do some cool stuff.

Of course, anyone other than Apple hacking the firmware is illegal under the DMCA. Far be it from me to incite illegal activity.
