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!

4 out of 5 eggsGreat for watching Netflix in bed!

Pros: Simple-to-use interface, battery life, Netflix app that works very well, fast WiFi web browsing.

Cons: The interface is slightly more sluggish than I would've thought. The provided USB cable does not seem to work with any 3rd party USB wall adapters. I can only charge by plugging it into a computer that's on. What?

Multiple "are you sure you want to purchase this app" message boxes when downloading a FREE app from the App Store. Also, I am forced to log into the iTunes store every time I download something. Can it not cache this login somehow? Even if just for a week or so?

No camera. For $40 more, you can get the 4th gen with a camera.

Other Thoughts: It's a handy little entertainment device. I am THRILLED about the Netflix app. I watched Full Metal Jacket the first night I had it. It looked great for such a small screen. My only complaint about this app - and don't know if it's an Apple or Netflix thing - is that you can only hold the iPod one way to view movies.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Great Little device for listening to music, Watching videos or even browsing the internet. Apps are great but sometimes costy.

Cons: The built in wireless is very weak as it could not detect my router from 30-50 feet away and does not support wireless N connections.

Other Thoughts: Its a great device for many daily uses although i do not recommend getting it if your trying to be able to surf the internet "everywhere".

3 out of 5 eggsApple: ipod touch

Pros: This device is the best ipod ever released by Apple. It's easy to upload music and photos to, and easy to view/listen to them. One of the best features of the device, is the touch screen. It's responsive and quick. It's also nice to be able to take advantage of the app store. Also, I like the addition of the volume buttons on the sides.

Cons: The worst part of this device is the back plate. I scratehs very easily. No matter how hard you try, this device will get scratched unless you have some sort of case on it for protection. The touch screen smudges very easily. So you might consider a screen protector. Also, I found that the ear-buds that it came with were rather uncomfortable. They were tight for me, and hurt my ears after long usage. But I know some people who like them, so you may too. Just something to keep in mind.

Other Thoughts: Other than what I said above. Not much else to say. Not the perfect device, but still really good. The only difference between this and the iphone is: no phone, no texting, and no 3G support.

5 out of 5 eggsI fought Apple for years

Pros: As they say, I'm a PC! Still am, but after getting my hands on the iPod Touch and seeing what it can accomplish, I'm sold out 100%. The iPod is so amazing and the Apps are just incredible. I can't wait until January 2011 when Verizon Wireless is suppose to start selling the iPhone 4 with Verizon's soon G4 network. A electronic marriage made in Heaven. Buy the iPod! :-)

Cons: Battery life is short, that's it!

3 out of 5 eggsgreat product

Pros: it's pretty much mind blowing in all categories!

Cons: This is a 2nd gen ipod touch. So if your looking for the 3rd gen. It's not this one...
This is the only thing i'm upset about and might return it because they have it advertised as a 3rd gen.
come on ppl...

Other Thoughts: They need to put 2nd gen on the title of this product.
It's not cool that they lie about things like that...
