    No, not unless you want to put Linux on your Nano, but that's a whole other can of worms.

    Not to mention pirating movies, which IIRC is a $250,000 fine and 5 years in jail per title.

    That's the penalty for pirating a pre-release movie. If the movie's out on VHS or DVD already the penalty goes down. I don't remember to what, though.

    You should be fined just for using Li(a)mewire.

    You can put iPod linux on your nano and watch movies that way. BUT this is quite complicated and not for noobs and it only works on first generation nanos currently.

    I assume even with the hack movies can only be watched on the tiny screen and not output to a dock or cable like the "big" iPod?

    The crap Limewire puts you through is punishment enough for using it.

    This thread makes me wonder what percentage of our youth are actually aware you can buy music online...I recently explained to my brother in law (16) that the iTMS store actually sells music and to stop using Limewire...Funny part is he owns an iPod and uses iTunes for syncing!!!!

    well too bad. if you dont want to buy your music then stop complaining. go to a used cd store ...cd's arent THAT expensive every now and then especially if you have a job

    just wondering about all those people claiming to have a 60gb iPod full of music...

    aehmm....if every song is around 4mb and cost 99cent to download you would spend more than $15.000 at your iTunes store.

    I wonder how many people here have spend 15.000 US-Dollars at iTunes:eek:

    ...you can buy a car for an iPod full of music from iTunes

    Ummm, I have these neat little things called Compact Discs, or CDs for short. I've been buying them for years. When I rip them into iTunes, I don't rip them at the piddly 128kbps AAC that the iTunes music store uses. I rip them at 320kbps AAC, which is almost the same as lossless. So you figure my higher bitrate encoded songs take up 2-3x the space of a normal song, and it's very easy to fill up a 60GB iPod with the amount of music I have. I don't get what you're saying. Are you under the impression that the only music you can listen to on an iPod is music bought from iTunes???

    It's from spending the last twenty five years buying CDs.
