Wikipedia on Your iPod

Despite what the haters say, it's hard to deny Wikipedia its place in the sun. Now you can load up the online encyclopedia on your (third or fourth generation) iPod. Folks with newer iPods, such as the nano or fifth-generation iPod with video, will be disappointed to find out their iPods aren't compatible. A kind fellow by the name of Robert Balmer took the trouble to convert the whole of Wikipedia into an iPod-compatible 800MB chunk. Of course, being based on the free encyclopedia, Wikipedia for iPod is totally free. So the next time you're in a heated debate about where Lionel Messi was born or how many diphthongs are in Portuguese, just whip out your trusty iPod and show everybody who's boss.
