iTouch hacking - full steam ahead

The process of hacking the iTouch is called, I discovered, a GetOutOfJailFree mod, and allows all manner of third-party - and unauthorised - applications to be loaded.

One of the most interesting is a VOIP client called SIP-VoIP, although you do need an iTouch microphone that is available from the Web portal and a few other sites.

You'll need a SIP IP telephony account, but it really works - I tried it on my iTouch, although as my iPod doesn't have a microphone, the conversation was pretty one-sided...
