So I'm looking at doing a project in which i would be using my laptop to send commands to my ipod touch which would then relay commands to an arduino to control a servo. This doesnt have to be done in this exact way.

For example,
I could just do Ipod --> arduino ( but this would have to be wireless since i want to move around.
I could also do laptop --> arduino (again, wireless only)
I was thinking the easiest way to do it was ad hoc wifi from laptop to ipod touch (jailbroken for terminal application), then serial cable from ipod to arduino.

If anybody has any ideas on parts i would need or how to go about doing this, please help.

Could you elaborate on how i would set up a web server on the arduino, so that i could connect via adhoc on the ipod through the fon router

The iPods have a fairly simple serial protocol with TTL level signals on the connector.  You could wire that into the Arduino without too much trouble.
