iPod nano hack removes apps; Jailbreak work-in-progress [Video]

Apple's latest iPod nano hasn't inspired quite the frenzied hack atmosphere as its iPod touch and iPhone siblings, but that doesn't mean the tiny touchscreen PMP is completely devoid of modification. James Whelton won a nano and spent little time in cooking up an app hack; while so far he can't add software to the PMP, he's figured out how to modify the Springboard UI to remove apps.

Griffin Slap is the Newest iPod Nano Watch, Probably the Coolest

Griffin Slap is the Newest iPod Nano Watch, Probably the Coolest

As far as watches go, there's usually just one main design element: it wraps around your wrist, gets secured in some fashion or another, and then you go about your day. But, way back in the day, there was this crazy thing called slap bracelets. No, they weren't watches, but they were cool in their own right. So, why not put the two things together? In fact, why don't we take this growing trend of making an iPod Nano into a watch, and combine it with a Slap bracelet? Someone at Griffin asked that very same question, and luckily enough, they've got the means to actually make it happen.

Ode to the Nano, V to the izzA

Ode to the Nano, V to the izzA

I was once stranded in Amsterdam for more than a week with my iPod nano and only 4 albums of music. I started the week at a Microsoft Mobius event, from which I got to visit Amsterdam coffeeshops with some fairly interesting and important people from Microsoft, Qualcomm and some of my other favorite tech blogs. After that event ended and most of my compatriots went home, I stuck around for a while to try to crash Nokia World, to which I was not actually invited or approved. In between, I had to wander the city and avoid getting into trouble.

Rock Band iPod nano watch-strap is obvious accessory

Slapping the new iPod nano onto a watch strap and wearing it on your wrist was first suggested mere seconds after Steve Jobs announced the fifth-gen PMP, and we've seen various homemade examples of how it could work.  Now, iLoveHandles has actually come up with a watch strap especially designed for the nano, complete with a cut-out notch to make sure the iPod is centered.

iPod nano gets iFixit teardown treatment

We've seen the iPod touch and the iPod shuffle bare their silicon souls under iFixit's relentless gaze; now it's the turn of the final new 2010 iPod, the iPod nano, to get torn apart.  iFixit has flexed its usual screwdriver and spudger - together with a heat gun to melt the glue that holds the screen in place - and discovered that the nano's guts are a 50/50 mixture of logic board and battery.
