    Here's a funny trick that you can use on your friends

    Needed:

    - 2 Jailbroken ipod thouch / iphone WITH SSH OR 1 Jailbroken ipod thouch / iphone with SSH AND 1 computer with PuttY

    Downlad putty here

    http://the.earth.li/~sgtatham/putty/latest/x86/putty.exe

    Now log into the ipod/phone

    Let your friend play around with it as they the stare in awe at its awesomeness

    Now, while they still have it, type in the word "reboot"and press (without the quotes) and press enter. This will safe reboot the device on command.
    Leaving you to freak out about how they "just broke it" while its still booting to the apple logo.

    If your friends are anything like mine, they will be mad after they see that they've been tricked; but, this anger quickly vanishes once you show them the power of SSH.

    Run the command

    Code:
    ssh root@(other iPod/iPhone's IP adress)
    and press enter

    In a client divice's terminal

    You then are logged into a remote terminal
