Good question.

I do know that by clicking the home button twice while the Touch is asleep, it'll bring up controls and you can quickly adjust the volume/track without unlocking the device.

It's honestly not that much bigger of a deal than having to blindly adjust volume on the iPod.

One thing I would love to know, but we won't for a while, is how Apple is going to go about providing apps for it. I would love a few things like a PDF viewer or mail app or some of the other stuff the iPhone has (can't get one in Canada yet, plus im trapped in a 2yr contract anyway )

Hax, I'm guessing. The community is thriving.

I have seen other people have done it with other ipods, the touch didn't have one.

I sort of see what you're shooting at, but at the same time, where would we be without our Mac shareware? I consider it the same on the iPhone/iPod. Apple provides some capability, but there's plenty of potential that they don't capitalize on, but that others are willing to fulfill. Their excuse with the iPhone was that they (ostensibly) didn't want third-party software screwing up AT&T's cell network. No such excuse with the iPod. Either they'll open up software development, or people will turn to hacking the devices to do what Apple won't allow.

^ are the apps 'supported' though? Like are they gonna brick it when the new firmware comes out? I have no beef with third party stuff but the last thing I want is Apple bringing down the brickhammer on my $300 iPod

No reason they should. You're not modifying the system files or anything, just placing more folders in the 'Applications' directory, as it were.

I mean, I think that the programs themselves will stop working after firmware updates, but it doesn't harm the core system of the iPhone at all.

How about when I am in the car though. A Notes app would be nice.

Yeah, a Notes app is going to be the first thing I'm going to hack onto my iPod once I get it. Invaluable.

Well, you're lucky then. The iPod touch doesn't work with the radio remote currently. Hopefully Radio 1 will offer a quicktime stream soon so that I can listen to it over Wi-Fi.

is it not compatible? i use it w/safari. or are you referring to "mobile" safari?

what i'm curios about is if apple will cripple the touch by not allowing input in certain text fields such as when composing web mail, or adding events to google/yahoo calendar, or taking notes with yahoo's notepad, or (as mentioned) google docs.

call me paranoid, but they've already pulled a bait and switch with the ical app.
