I keep a copy of WoW on my iPod. I can plug that into any computer with an internet connection and a USB port and play right off of my iPod. I use the authenticator to protect myself from key loggers. Move over music I need disk space for WoW.

Why did I not think of this sooner!

I wonder if this would work with the Iphone as well?I would think you would need the 32 gig at least.

I started copying my WoW installation onto my iPod as a way of backing up everything up so I would not have to completely redo all my addons every time i reinstalled Window etc. Since I realized I could just plug the iPod in and play directly from it at any time my iPod has never left my side.WoW on the go 24/7/365

So, help me out here...I'm a bit slow. If I did this I could play at work, without having to install WoW, so my boss would never know?

I've done this for about 2 years now. Best idea I've ever had - I was able to play on American servers while I was in China (with a decent chunk of latency, but whatever). It's nice to be able to bring WoW wherever you go.

You can't use an iPhone to do this as Apple doesn't allow you to use it as a thumb drive (that's what Pallic is doing with his classic iPod).You don't need an iPod to do this BTW. Just pick up a 16GB (cutting it close) or a 32GB thumb drive and you're set.

I have done this with an iPod and usb drive using mojopac. Not necessary to play WoW but a cool program none the less. If you want to check it out it can be found here: http://www.mojopac.com/

@IkarusBe careful - I'm a systems admin and I can tell you right away that you wouldn't be able to do that on my networks.. and if you did manage you'd get caught really quick :).Your admins can easily block all wow traffic, or just have it alert them if you try and use it (as well as any kind of tunneling you might want to try to get around it).So the questions to ask yourself are1) How good are the admins in your company?2) Is it worth getting caught?2 is the big one.... if you're likely to get fired for it, don't do it. If you'd get a warning.... meh, why not? ;)
