    I assume the purpose of this was more about the "ejecting" prior to removal and not literally how to plug and unplug that iPod. That being in mind, the "eject" and the "safely remove hardware" options are very important things to remember when removing all devices....except for USB devices. USB devices are hot-swappable, meaning, unless the device is actively doing something (syncing in the case of an iPod) you can unplug it as you please.

    I do have to qualify this as it seems every time I make a statement about universally agreed upon practices and features of technology, Apple goes and blows it out of the water. For all I know, the iSeries are the only USB devices that aren't hot-swappable. I wouldn't be surprised one bit.
