Ipod Tetris

Anyone know of a free download of tetris for the ipod? Most preferably WITHOUT installing anything to it or altering how it operates. I've googled it i can find nothing but torrents, i don't mind torrents, but there like 8 or 9 games, at about 400MB. Way too much for dialup to handle. Now all i want is tetris, so if anyone can provide me with the tetris.ipg (with the DRM cracked), i'd be most pleased.

Knex Ipod

Wouldn't it be cool to have a huge ipod dock made from knex, that looks like a HUGE ipod, also it could be rigged so that when you turn the humongus wheel, the ipod wheel moves! Just like this, but with the Ipod inside!

Ipod Issue

Okay, I am having some weird issues with my Ipod Issue number one: My Ipod won't sync correcting. My plugged it into a different computer with Itunes installed, but it won't sync to it, even though it says, syncing or w/e. Why is this happening? (I put this in the forums because all my answers I submitted days ago still isn't on the list, so I figured this would be better)

So i bought an ipod from a friend, he sold it to be because it was broken. I am attempting to fix it, but i have been stumped!

A 111GB of usesless stuff is on there (The drive is 120gb, but formatted, it read 111gb), and it can't get it off! I can't really access it through windows because it freezes my computer when i try to open it/right click it It takes a while to boot (1-2 minutes) it gets recognized by iTunes only part of the time. Every time it boots, i have to re-enter the preferred language. Thank for any help!

Problem: outdoor to ipod speakers

Whats up guys,slightly new, and just became slightly become obsessed with instructables. But i currently have a pair of old speakers(outdoor) Online Pic. of Them. My goal was to take those speakers and turn them into portable ipod speakers. I took a pair of old headphones and cut the wires at the earpieces so i have the wire. When i cut the headphone wire, there is a white and red wire, but there is another wire that isnt wrapped and is just a bunch of minicopper strands.

I can hear music out of the speakers but its distorted like there is a loose connection somewhere but ive quadruple checked them. any ideas or suggestions?thanks in advanced!-matrix

iPod Touch Rail Mount

Hey!I got a Roland V-Drum kit last year and there's an aux input for mp3 players. I use it with my iPod touch to play along with songs.My problem is, I rest my iPod on the control module and not only does this then block half the controls, but it sometimes falls off with furious drumming.So I though to myself, I wonder if I can buy a rail mount so I can have a cradel attatched to the stand. I knew you could buy motorbike iPod cradels, but all of these weren't wide enough to accomidate the 35-40mm diameter of the stand. So I thought about making one.But I can't come up with any ideas.The stand I have is this:http://www.woodbrass.com/images/woodbrass/BATTERIE+DRUM+ROLAND+TD+9+KX.JPG(not the drums though... I wish)The rail mounts I have been looking at are like this:http://www.mountguys.com/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=RAP-274-AP4&click;=21Any ideas guys?
