    I just find it curious that Apple has placed the Apple TV in the iPod section of its website. Maybe because it's a media consumption device?

    I could make an iPod out of one with not much effort. Buy an Apple TV1 that I could install a bluetooth chip in, get a small battery that fits inside the case and an SSD to cut down on space, snip the end off the power cord and wire it to the battery pack. There would even be enough room given the size of the components in the Apple TV1 and all I would just need is a set of bluetooth headphones to listen to music. It wouldn't be much bigger than the original iPod that Steve Jobs once said fits in your pocket. Whoops! No it's not an iPod. Some people have too much time on their hands to ask silly questions, so I'm going to waste your time with this post that is a silly wall of text as I think about the possibilities of how to make an iPod out of an Apple TV but never actually go through with doing it because I don't even have a soldering iron. I had a chicken sandwich for lunch.

    Actually, I thought I might find it under Accessories. As it was, I had to do a search of Apple's site. I guess it's not prominently featured anywhere since it's still a hobby.
