    If it costs $10, you'd think they wouldn't make the link publicly available for all to see.

    because they want people to be able to download it so they make money.

    the ones that link directly to the servers arnt SUPPOSED to be public... somebody modifyed the URL so that it didnt need the confirmation that you paid for it, instead it will just download it and it will count as paid for.

    Unless the link says APPLE.COM in it, its illegal.

    It is straight from the apple.com server.. the link. It is the official 3.0 firmware, not the beta. I am surprised Apple doesn't care much... or that it doesn't require more encryption. Apparently, only 1% of Ipod Touch users have actually paid for the firmware upgrade.
