    Overclocking is making the Processor make more Calculations per second (More GHz) than the Manufacturer has set it to. It might damage your iPod.
    Overclocking comes from the PC, Gaming-PCs are often overclocked.

    Nope. Also it voids your warranty and makes Apple see a Jailbreak faster if you send your device in.

    A bit. But it also makes your device hotter, and you cannot avoid it, because unlike a PC, you cannot put a better fan in it

    Nah. It really makes your CPU faster. But eventually increases it's heat, and shortens its life. So basically the same as VM: Fast for Now or Long Life?
