PodShanking
 n.— «PodShanking can be declared a “hack” in the basest sense of that word: as in hackey. This is a jury-rigged, stop-gap solution to a sticky technical problem. Throw more hardware at this problem and you’ll solve it better. Throw more software at this problem and you’ll also improve it—or do a quick and dirty solution that gets you the same basic results now. The hack? Direct iPod to iPod transfers.» —“PodShanking: physical pod on pod penetration.” by Brett Jackson The Mod Gods Mar. 13, 2005. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
