Encyclopodia – encyclopedia on your iPod




Get the whole Wikipedia into your iPod!

Wiki on iPod

Encyclopodia is a free software project that brings the Wikipedia, which is one of the largest encyclopedias on the world, on the Apple iPod MP3-Player. It has been successfully tested on a third-generation iPod and on an iPod mini, but it should also work on other iPod generations.


 

The Installation Wizard works just fine with my 4th gen iPod Photo. The encyclopedia library though was a huge download — 753MB.

Navigation is a little hard since you’re stuck with the click wheel to select each letter of the word you’re searching for. Then, there’s no backlight.

    Ipod Freedom release Date July 4th, 2006

    New hot rumor, guys ;)

    The new Ipod has no buttons, no scroll wheel, no headphone jack, no dock connector. In other words freedom from everything. The most aesthetic piece of technology ever conceived.

    1. Power Supply through SplashPower. Similar to those toothbrushes and razors that charge through there plastics with magnetic fields.(strange they haven’t updated there site since September 05…did Apple acquire them?)

    2. Transfer of songs…Wireless USB

    3. Headphone jack…Bluetooth

    4. Navigation…virtual touchless/touch screen. As your finger moves over the ipods screen a virtual scrolling interface pops up allowing for more screen real-estate. fingerprints?? not to worry you don’t actually have to touch the screen, embedded in/behind the lcd are capacitors that can tell, which direction your fingers are going.

    5. Hold Button/Power On fingerprint screen identification(great for if your ipod is stolen)

    So, there you have it a completely enclosed ipod, so elegant as not to have a single button or port opening or anything but a beautiful screen… Apple will release the Ipod July 4th 2006… Independence Day… free your self from everything.

    *ipod Nano will still have dock connector for now.

  7. Pay attention ! I simply found a blemish inside your blog! See if your style will be handled properly!

  8. But, what you’ll likely find is that you hear him when he really needs you, but you don’t wake up at every little gurgle, which
    means better rest for both of you. In short, she could be
    born at any time, though we still are likely
    to have a couple more weeks to go. Beddings for bassinets are available in the market in a variety of colors, sizes
    and texture.
