    Tips and Tricks for your iPod

    Post  Jenny Li on Wed Sep 09, 2009 3:02 am

    For many, the iPod is an essential and personal gadget in their lives. It relieves stress, boredom, and helps drown out the sometimes hectic melody of daily life. Because the iPod is an item of such personal expression, devout users have developed tips and tricks to customize their iPods to their own needs. I have collected a few particularly interesting ones to share with everyone so that you may try customizing your iPod as well. These tidbits of information may range from trivial instructions such as how to extend battery life to useful hacks; but hopefully you can utilize at least one of them.

    • Hacks: To gain access to these nifty modifications just go to: iPodwizard.net. After signing up, go to the forums and download iPod Wizard’s small-sized application. With this application, you can now edit the text and the graphics theme on your IPod! These themes are all user made and so you do not like the available themes then you can always find someone on the forum and request a custom design.

    • Radio: This is a slightly more complicated process and you will find all the directions here: http://shufflehacks.blogspot.com/2005/12/build-your-own-imouse-fm-transmitter.html. With this hack it will turn your iPod into a portable radio station!

    • Youtube Videos: Admit it, tons of people are addicted to YouTube, and no one can blame them there are tons of “entertaining” clips on that site. Now if you found one you’re particularly fond of then you could go to this website: vixy.net and have the clip transferred into your iPod! All you have to do is copy and paste the YouTube URL, specify the format you desire, then download it and place on iTunes!

    • iPod as Storage Device: If you have a old or maybe just extra iPod laying around, why not make use of it? Waste not, want not. Simply open iTunes and under the properties of your iPod, select “Enable Disk Usage.” Once you plug your iPod you can go to “My Computer” (for PC) or “Find” (for Mac) and now you can use your iPod as a storage device!

    • Wikipedia: This is a site that everyone loves, all knowledge in one place. Now you can get it on your iPod and carry Wikipedia with you everywhere you go. Just go to this website: http://encyclopodia.sourceforge.net/en/index.html and follow the instructions, it will guide you step by step.

    • Battery Life: The brightness of the screen and the volume at which you play your songs are two factors that affect how long your iPod battery lasts. The louder you pump your volume the more battery life you consume, not to mention it could cause hearing problems in the long run. The brightness of your iPod’s screen can be easily adjusted, and since you don’t stare at your screen the whole time it is one factor that be easily dealt with.

    With that, I give you some pretty spiffy tools for you to start customizing your own iPod.
    However, remember don’t use them in class or you’ll be finding yourself in the dean’s office!
