iPod uPdate

Apple rewarded us early testers of the iPod by releasing an updater this morning that can either simply update the iPod's firmware to the 1.0 release version, or completely wipe its drive and restore factory defaults. Both options are useful. The 1.0 firmware disables a feature in my beta version of the iPod that allowed me to copy music back from the iPod to any computer. Apple had said that the iPod wouldn't allow this because it would enable music piracy.
