Yes I am a gadget junkie… October 7, 2007 at 8:46 pm
So I was able to wait a few weeks,but I finally. Caved and got an iPod touch. I got an 8 gig model vs a 16gig one, mostly because no one had any 16gig models in stock but also because the difference isn’t enough to make a big difference at these sizes. I would wait if there were known plans for a hard disk model or maybe even 40+gig but for now 8 is plenty to play with. Plus I wanted the video and wifi more than Massive storage. It easily holds my main playlist and another of some albums I like more. Plus several videos, plenty of photos, my contacts and calendar too.
The video quality is amazing, and the screen is surprising big for how small the whole thing is. The web browsing is pretty cool too; in fact, I’m posting this from it now. Typing I’d obviously slower than with a fullsize keyboard but it’s pretty good and relatively fast.
If you’ve been thinking about getting one and don’t need to carry your whole iTunes library with you, it’s worth it.
On, lack of 3rd party apps and any games yet kinda limiting,but I’m sure that’ll change fairly soon. …and yes I’m aware of some hacking to get apps, but I’m tired of dealing with hacks on stuff like this and the firmware and iTunes updates tend to break the hacks fairly quickly.
