Encyclopodia

EncyclopodiaI have just discovered what appears to be The Best Thing Ever: Encyclopodia. Some genius has figured out how to put all of Wikipedia onto an iPod. One of the world’s most comprehensive and accurate sources of information in my pocket at all times – fantastic! It’s searchable, too.

The english Wikipedia download is 750mb, but well worth it imho. To run Encyclopodia you need to restart the iPod and press ‘rewind’ to boot into Linux. It runs fine on my 4G iPod Photo; I have to press and hold ‘menu’ to turn on the backlight, but that may well be a power-saving feature rather than a bug.

Pub quizzes may need to start banning iPods, I think!
