Programming for the iPod

I think you cannot program your own applications with the default Apple os iPod ships with. Instead you might want to add linux for iPod (http://ipodlinux.org) to your iPod (and have both Apple iPod OS and iPodLinux): This way you can definitely start writing your own apps and modules for your iPod (using c++)

Programming for iPodLinux is easier than you think. You have to already have a good working knowledge of C, but it's doable. I wrote a few apps actually.

http://ipodlinux.org/Special:Module?mode=list&author=1304 - I wrote "Contacts" and "Photos", which were Linux versions of Apple's apps. The others were just ports of others' older software for their newer Linux software.

But yeah, that's the only way you'll ever be able to make custom apps for the iPod.
