You cannot, nor can you do SSH2.x or SFTP or fire open a bash shell and download uuencoded porn.

What the hell are you talking about?

To the none idiots out there, you can link an iPod to the 360 to view photos, play music, and view videos.....does anyone know how to get this to work with the iPhone.

Sorry, didn't mean to be rude. i was trying to be funny. No, there is no way it will attach (wirelessly or otherwise) to an xbox.

You can use a normal ipod to look at photos and listen to mp3 or unprotected aac music on your 360, but you can't listen to apple lossless or protected content, but no video viewing.

The iphone may not work properly with the 360 because it isn't identical to the ipod in that it can't be recognized as a hdd.

While I haven't tried to use my iphone on my xbox, I suspect it doesn't have the correct driver built in to read the iphone. Microsoft does regulat updates on it, so it wouldn't surprise me if they added support later on.

And for the xbox haters, it's great to plug in an iPod and listen to MY music while playing games. Just because microsoft makes it doesn't mean it's junk. It's an excellent gaming system
