Packing up for Maker Faire, I was debating whether to bring my old iPod as a back-up to my iPhone. That got me thinking about ways I might make use of my iPod besides just insuring music and address book redundancy. On TravelHacker, I found this round-up of 75+ tutorials on everything from turning it into a guitar tuner to using it as a universal remote, to an ebook reader, to turning it into money (ah, as in selling it…).

    While I like this list in principle, I’m a little troubled by the completely serious link to a “Household Hacker” video (#42), wherein I learn that I can make my iPod into a taser by playing a special .mp3 through a couple of bare wires from the headphone jack. HH puts up all kinds of crap like this, and I’m sad to see it get any kind of publicity.
