This particular iPod model have not been around for two years, just a  
couple of months ;-)  Maybe they are called "iPod Photo" or "iPod  
Video"? It's because of the big hard drive (no flash memory, as older  
models used) they look like a good deal for audio recording in at a  
non compressed format.

But regarding the old iPod models you are perfectly right; there was  
the Linux hack and that Griffin or Belkin thingy available. If you  
still have a 1st generation iPod you can use the Linux hack to record  
full bandwidth audio on it.
