    would it be possible to solder any wires to get power onto the USB ports on a G3 iMac? I have a blue 500Mhz model, if that would make any difference. the reason that I want to do this is because all of the iPods use USB now, and I would like to be able to charge mine while I am syncing it.

    Buy a powered hub?

    Which iPod are you using? I have a shuffle which will charge on my iMac, attached to a USB port on the computer itself with an extention cable.
