Inside the iPod

Komplett in der Macworld, unter anderem:
You can place more than just phone numbers and addresses on the iPod. If you've got an older model, you can use the iPod's contact list to store directions, helpful foreign phrases, hotel reservation numbers, or even your favorite recipes.
To do this, you'll take advantage of vCard -- a cross-platform, open standard for storing contact information on computers and other personal computing devices. First open a vCard-compatible contact manager -- Apple's Address Book or Microsoft Entourage, for example. Enter the name of the item (Bread Recipe, for example) in the First Name field and the information you want to record in the Title field.
Save the contact and move it to your iPod.
To create line breaks, insert \n where you'd like the line to break. For example, 2 eggs\n4 cups flour\n1 packet yeast\npinch of salt\n1 cup water appears on your iPod like this:
2 eggs
4 cups flour
1 packet yeast
pinch of salt
1 cup water

If you're using a new iPod, adding notes is even easier: just drop text files (they can't be larger than 4K) in the Notes folder on your iPod. The iPod will automatically detect line breaks, so you don't have to add \n anywhere. You can even use basic HTML tags to create hyperlinks to other text files (or to parts of your music library).
