Jailbreaking an iPod means a process that allows any device that is running Apple's iPhone operating system to root access and unlock all the features of the operating system. This jail break removes all the limitations that are imposed by apple. The jailbreak will allow the downloading of additional applications, extensions that are not available on the official Apple App Store. it is considered a criminal offense to jail break iPod.
When you jailbreak an iPod, you are putting a program on there that is not Apple. It allows you to get all your apps/songs/vids for free. However it is highly illegal and you cannot claim insurance if it breaks, so I wouldn't recommend it.

Jailbreaking is making so you can use your idevice in a manner that Apple did not intend. Like personalizing your screen so your apps look different, one example is there is a source you can get with a jailbroken device that can make it so your iPhone can look and act like a Android device! It doesn't mean that everything is free either, some sources can cost money also. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BmobQVdnDHA

Jailbraking is in all actuality a criminal offence. It voids your Apple warranty and Apple, in most cases, will have nothing to do with it if it becomes broken etc. Also, once an iPod/iPhone is jailbroken it is open to catch viruses and quite often the iPod can crash whilst trying to be jail broken.
Jailbreaking makes it so it can be used for another carrier unlocking makes it so you can get free apps and other cool stuff. But be warned, know what you're doing when you install programs and such on it cause it could mess up your phone or iPod beyond repair
