Has anyone else noticed that the when shuffling songs with iTunes 7.6, or the iPod Touch firmware 1.1.3 there, artists aren’t really random, but come in doubles?

In under a month, shares of Google stock have risen from $595 up to the current price of $702.  I just have to say, that is incredible, and I’m glad I still have my 1 share I was able to get when it was down at a more believable $300

iPod Touch can’t play through Xbox 360

Gameboy iPod with Video


This skilled DIYer took apart an old Gameboy,  that’s the original one, The Brick, and inside it, was crammed an iPod. He even wired up the A/B buttons Start/Select, and D-pad to the iPod’s click wheel controls: The headphone jack is on the bottom, and it even has a dock connector, how awesome is that. … Continued
