Apple's iPod has revolutionized the way we buy and listen to music. Don't buy the whole album; just get the songs you want. Listening to an iPod is like having a commercial-free radio station that plays only the songs you choose…and they always take your requests! The iPod Touch takes the revolution into a new dimension, with the addition of WiFi and theatrical widescreen capabilities!

The iPod Touch's stunning 3.5" multi-touch screen lets you navigate quickly through the intuitive menu system to any of your videos, photos, music, or audio books. The screen automatically re-orients itself, whichever way you're holding the iPod, so choose the view you want. Browse and download from the WiFi iTunes Store, surf the Web using Safari, search using Yahoo! or Google, or watch videos on YouTube, anywhere you have WiFi access!

The Touch uses flash memory, which is stable under the worst vibrations. It's a perfect choice for the gym, motorcycling, or any other active pursuit! The Touch gives you up to 30 hours of music playback, or 6 hours of video with sound on a single charge. Big things really do come in small packages!

5 out of 5 eggsincredible. whoever said android changes life? didn't realize they could buy an itouch and go to heaven.

Pros: - Hundreds, if not thousands of apps to choose from, some of them even free!

-Plenty of storage space to store tons of stuff

-updates for servers and applications keep bugs out and you happy.

-Voice command for music, which is incredibly useful if your like me and you find it incredibly annoying to have to dig your hands into your front pocket and pull out your ipod just to change the song, only to have to put it back in and eventually take it out. Voice control takes out the need for this, now realize voice control is only for the 32gb and 64gb so don't settle with the 8!

-Easy to navigate interface.

-Lots of fun

-Helpful for all lifestyles, gaming, business, home and regular use.

-overall a very customizable OS(if you can call it that)

Cons: -Although, its not really a con, its a bit annoying, but right now i'm just being nit-picky. if you like to lay down and enjoy yourself, doing so with the itouch is going to be rather difficult because of the accelerometer, once you lie down the itouch thinks you're turning it sideways, which technically you are, it switches from portrait to landscape and everything is sideways.

-Maybe i just don't know how, but its a little difficult to bring up the options panel, for instance if your watching a video and you'd like to pause or fastfoward, i have no idea how to bring up the options. I just sorta tap the screen or run my finger across it, hoping it works.

-It would be nice to have the battery last longer, time seems to fly when i'm on my itouch and before i know it, i have to charge.

Other Thoughts: -Don't be fooled into thinking the 32gb has the same amount of video space as the 64gb one. The only reason its six hours for both is because the battery, fully charged, can only last six hours. i recomend if you're going to be downloading a TON of video, to get the 64, otherwise, definitely get just get the 32 and save some bucks.

-its hard to type and you often hit adjacent letters but hey. this isn't your laptop, although. i frankly think its a lot more useful and portable than my laptop.

-Stock Headphones are decent, keep them otherwise you lose voice control. ):

-I don't know why they put the shiny glossy silver back, its just a magnet for finger prints.

5 out of 5 eggsI touch 32 ROCKS :)

Pros: Amazing piece backed by apple :) its very simple to use, the interphase is mindblowing :) even a kid can use it! sound quality is amazing (i use a bose headset) the apple head phones are not upto mark :(

Cons: just the headphones.. they are not upto the mark.. and now since they come with a mike and volume control to it, the voice command will not work if they are replaced with other headsets. thats the only sad part to the itouch. wish they could have had better earphones! or have the mike on the itouch itself.. :)

Other Thoughts: once again to sum it up. its beautiful, simple, sleek, handy and sturdy. (except for the earphones.. seriously i hate them)

4 out of 5 eggsGreat device for mobile computing!

Pros: Where to start, there are so many good things to be said about this device...

-HUGE application development community, the possibilities for this device are only limited by the very open-ended hardware therein.

-Apps like the teamview application allow me to access my home desktops over wifi from anywhere in the world, I was not aware that the iPod had this app when I purchased it, but I must admit, it made it a lot better.

-Music comes through crystal clear through headphones!

-Brilliant display allows for a wide range of uses.

-Touch screen makes this almost more convenient than browsing the web on my PC.

-The headphone jack holds on tight to my headphone cord so it doesn't slip out while it's in my pocket.

-Of course, fast and on-time newegg shipping and low prices make this a sure buy from this website.

I have only begun to unlock its true potential, and look forward to using this in conjunction with my monitorless PCs as an access terminal when I am away fr

Cons: But, of course, there are some down sides...

-The data/charging port came with no cover... This has got to be one of the stupidest and cheapest things I have ever seen, not to include a simple plastic cap over it so it doesn't attract dust/moisture.

-No expandable memory... I mean... seriously? Would it have killed apple to add a micro SD card slot? (I suppose this is why they offer twice the space for 100 dollars more, squeeze an extra few dollars out of you.)

-The back panel didn't need to be the kind of plastic it is, it heats up my hand and makes it sweat, and attracts finger prints, although I guess this is what all the cases are for.

Other Thoughts: I really enjoy it as an alternative to sitting behind my monitor, and has given me incentive to upgrade my wireless router to something with a little more range, as mine doesn't give me full mobility to stray more than a few yards from the edge of my property.

I love the app dev community, so many possibilities being fulfilled by so many people... I really enjoy this product so far, and apart from the cons above, it is all but perfect.

5 out of 5 eggsLittle info.

Pros: To most of the reviews, these apple machines are the highest end compared to anything out there now even straight from factory. Some of you have problems with these things from factory but you need to learn how to jailbreak these things to solve all your issues you're having. I owned two iPhones (2G and a 3GS) and both were jailbroken. It's simple and you don't break the warranty.

Flash is still not supported due to Apple being douches about this since they don't want to leave the phones technology and information to be leaked to 3rd party manufactures. So they came up with HTML5.

I've been actually looking into purchasing a Touch since my 5th Gen iPod might not make it till the end of the year. All in all your iPod will come alive once jailbroken.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Best phones and ipods hands down... GET IT!
