…You can add bluetooth to your iPod?

Bluetooth iPod

With the launch of Apple’s Air, they’re basically telling the world that wires are soon going to be a thing of the past.

If you’re already ready to jump on that wireless bandwagon, then perhaps it’s time to do a bit of modding.

By adding a Bluetooth dongle to your 4G iPod (you’ll need a steady hand and some decent soldering skills), you can create an iPod with internal Bluetooth capabilities.

(It also converts your iPod over to flash memory, so it’s a bit of a two-for-one deal.)

Join the revolution!

…Lifehacker is writing a book?

Lifehacker Book

Lifehacker.com, a great source of life hacks (clever shortcuts or lesser-known, faster ways to complete a task), is publishing a book. Called Lifehacker: 88 Tech Tricks to Turbocharge Your Day, it’s a supplement/companion to their very popular web site, “a collection of the best how-to’s from the site archives”. It’s an open source book in the sense that the already published material is “enhanced by additions, suggestions, questions and answers from Lifehacker readers”. If you enjoy “redefining personal productivity by tweaking, modding, mashing up, and repurposing web apps, desktop software, and common everyday objects”, then this book is for you. I’ve been an avid reader of Lifehacker for quite some time now, and judging by the material they’ve published in the past, a collection of their best stuff is a definite must have for any techie library’s shelves.
