Found my 1st Gen Touch ..... Damn slow ...
....and it is either useless or I am just used to quicker devices. Thought I lost it when moving country but found it today. Restored it (3.1.3) and synced some music onto it - nothing else (apps or movies) and the thing is rotten slow.
The touchscreen is slow, opening 'iPod' takes half a minute to display and JB brings it down to such slow crawl that it is unusable.
Battery is great funnily enough - third day on the table and sits at 75% (granted - no use at all).
Not really a question but more likely an observation - whatever it is, the thing seems to degrade over time. I'd understand it by constant use, similar to constant writes on SSDs, but with no use at all, it seems odd that it becomes unusable. I had it two years ago and it was fine.
R.I.P I guess ....

I still use my 1st gen 16Gb iPod touch but I also have a 4th gen iPod touch that I prefer using if I'm using it for anything more than music functions but the device still works like when it was new = everything else has gotten faster in the years since the original was introduced

Also touch 1g sound quality is different from 4g. 1g touch was the only touch with Wolfson audio chip. 4g audio quality is great (warm sound) but so is 1g (more neutral) with headphones-with earphones 4g is better.
Steve Jobs would have never let this happen, Tim Cook would have let this happen.
