    I found a link on a Mac Forum I frequent and they made a thread saying Direct Link for iPod Touch 2G Firmware 3.0. I copied that link into my browser and a download began. What is going on?

    It's called illegal downloading. They've probably uploaded the 3.0 firmware upto a website. I suggest you don't post the link here if you were planning to.

    then it must bypass the verification stuff. so its a direct link to apples servers. a hacker is probably spreading it across the internet. dont share it here though

    Doesn't apple charge because of some stupid law, not to make money? If this is true, they probably care much more about customer satisfaction than about the potential revenue, so they may be "accidentally" leaking firmware for those who know how to find it.
