Taking screenshots with the iPod V2

This has been mentioned on several sites relating to the iPhone, but it’s worth repeating since it also works with the iPod Touch. To take a screenshot, hold down the home button and quickly press the on/off button. The screen flashes white then fades back to normal to indicate success.

Screenshots are stored in a Saved Photos album that appears first in the Photo Albums list. The next time you connect the iPod to your Mac (sorry, not sure how it works under Windows) the album can be transfered into iPhoto, as shown below. Not sure why the thumbnails didn’t appear in the import window, is this a bug?

    Not that I have seen. I owned a 30Gb 5th gen iPod before the touch and never saw anything about taking screenshots.
