    is there anyway of blocking ads in the mobile version of safari on the ipod similar to adblock plus on firefox or the safari adblock plugin for osx or even a way of editing a hosts file to block out unwanted ads/websites?

    Not as easy to do host files on MacOS (which the iPod Touch is based on). Take a look here for some info on what's required on MacOS X - http://corz.org/serv/tricks/hosts.php

    I'm not sure how it translates to the iPod Touch since I don't believe the NetInfo utility is included in the iPod Touch OS.
