      No it's not. The only known use is for charging your ipod.

      No, it will be enabled by on over-the-air software upgrade at some point. There is a new device that is around that is effectively an external hard drive for the sky+. I'll see if I can find the link.

      No, it is for future use but at the moment all it may do is to charge things (I use mine to charge my xbox controllers)
