    The iPod app will play music in the background - no need for an iPod.

    He said app, not an iPod :D

    Anyhow, no. I don't have any music on my iPod. I cleared it off to make more room for video.

    I do that quite often, it's nice that the speaker is good on it. I also use it while playing simple games too.

    double click the home button while iPod is playing in the background to pop up quick ipod controls like back or next without leaving the current app.

    The glass harp is a collection of glass wine glasses used to produce music. It is what Sandra Bullock used for the talent portion of 'Miss Congeniality'. What always caught my attention was Linda Ronstadt had an artist using a Glass Armonica (which was invented by Benjamin Franklin) on the Tonite Show. She claimed that only the lead base glass worked properly, and that the musician had to be tested often for lead poisoning. Recent readings say that silica glass is used in most of them today, and there is no evidence of lead poisoning. I could see where that would be a concern since it requires moistened bare fingers, or a coating of chalk on the hands.
