Just a few things i am doing with my iPod,
using iPod as a removable storage
I mainly use iphonebrowser, which connects to the iPod using USB. It works with ipod touch and dont need itune installed (i think). its a third party software and its faster then the wifi alternative in my experience.
or you can use discover , which you can find in the ituen app store. it access your ipod through the common wifi network that your computer and ipod share. the interface is a web browser. i find it to be slow.
change you itune store regional setting to united states
for some reason itune taiwan dont support podcast, which defeats the purpose i bought my ipod in the first place 😦
to gain access to the english podcast that i am accustom to, i have to set the region to the united states. i did it by clicking here on the political gabfest page. any US based itune podcast feed link should work. there is properly a way to do it in itune tho.
