    iPod touch
    Its something you install or if you're using 1.1.2 most likely installed already. Its icon is a light switch. You will also need the BSD Subsystem installed to get a lot of the features working.

    You can use a program such as Putty to connect to the touch once you enable it. It goes over the network so you don't need iTunes running or the ipod connected via USB just wifi.

    You will connect with the ip of the ipod, port 22, user root, default pass is alpine.

    From there you will end up with a dos like window where you can enter command lines.
    For example "df -h" will show the amount of disk space left.

    You can also get WinSCP which will give you access to the ipod file system similar to a FTP server. You will be able to transfer files, set permissions, etc. Lots of fun.
