MacRumors wont post this rumor, so I'm doing it by myself. First, Install iPod Linux and when it is done, you have to add a folder to the iPod called Recordings. After that when you first use iPod Linux, you can go to Extras > Recordings > Mic Record > Play/Pause, and it will record whatever you say into the left earbud right then and there with no additional 3rd party accessories. This only works with the 3G, and the 4G is not supported, but MAY work. When you go back into apple's OS, sync it to your computer and a playlist will automatically be made called Voice Recordings, which will contain your recordings in the WAV format. Hopefully this will save some people up to $40. Just remember, when you save that money, thank me! I do not know the link to the web site and I don't feel like looking, so just search for "iPod Linux Installer." EDIT: Good news! I found out that it works not only with Apple's earphones, but with any earphones! I kinda figured that anyways, just didn't wanna lie to you. It officially works.
