Anyone heard about Linux for the iPod Nano? I saw a video of a guy playing half life on it. I hope they make it for the iPod Video.

I think playing Half-Life on an iPod would be really hard.....with naught but a clickwheel to deal with.

And the Nano's screen is small (I have one) and I don't think playing HL would be enjoyable because the ammo and stuff would be microscopic.

It would seem you got gipped by a phony image, or if not, find out "how he did it" :whistling:

Black's reactions:
A) That doesn't look like too much fun...just...too small
B) Your battery life probably turns to 12 minutes because just having the backlight on sucks it up at like 200% the normal rate
C) I'm fine with Brick and Solitaire on mine :blink:

And after that on there is there any room for like...music? :whistling:

It is primarily designed for the larger ipods not the nano, and i wouldnt think it would take up alot of space really.
