The iPhone and the iPod Touch are becoming an interesting field of research for hackers and modders. On the iPhones we’ve seen the early versions of BeatPhone and mpc500. But iPod Touch owners will be glad to know that the guy behind touchmods.blog.com has found out the on the device’s board features some audio input pins (not documented by Apple) and that they are active. This means they can be used for connecting any audio source (like an external Mic, your CD-player, FM radio, etc) for recording. Yes, this open the doors to VoIP applications, but since we’re at AudioNewsRoom we hope we’ll see some music applications coming for the iPod Touch in the next months.
