Zipit Hacking

zip.jpgThe Zipit is a little $99 WiFi device with LCD screen that is primarily targeted to homes with kids who instant message a lot and would use this as opposed to using a computer just to chat. Some folks are starting to hack it up in some really cool ways, here are a few sites I’ve gathered- Yahoo groups with instructions and posts about getting Linux on it, Zipit’s GNUpage, AiboHack’s Zipit page (he’s doing some amazing stuff) and a great Zipit overview page from Elk Grove wireless. If you’re in to these let me know, we might do an article on it in Make.
