Since the ipot just came out recently, I suggest everyone just calm down. Someone will eventually write some software in order to put flash on it... Although, after talking with my macbook retailer buddy (one of the only 5 on the east coast), he has word that since the software is definitely upgradeable, Apple is still in the process of writing some firmware updates that will allow the ipot to view flash and java. There is no set release date on when this will happen, but, rumor has it that the new updated firmware will come out late this year or, at the most, by mid '08 (if apple doesn't run into any bugs). So with that in mind, just be patient people. there is light at the end of the tunnel. If someone does happen to write a mod by then, I would suggest waiting to install it untill there are reviews about it on this site to avoid screwing up your new ipot.. Be patient, and you will be pleased.
