    I have an 8gb touch

    i have upgraded to 2.0 and downloaded several apps successfully (google, aim, facebook, nytimes)

    i tried downloading some more apps just now (remote, weatherbug, and tap tap revolution)....their icons appear on the homescreen but grayed out and underneath the icon it just says "loading"

    they have been stuck like this for several hours,

    I am connected to wifi and my other apps are running normally

    any ideas?

    I suggest deleting them off you iPod by pressing and holding any icon and wait for the to start wiggling. Then, touch the "X" that appears on the upper left hand corner of the app. If that doesn't work, try connecting your iPod to your iTunes library. If that doesn't work, reset your iPod by pressing and holding the on/off button and the "Home" button for five seconds or for however long it takes to reset.

    If all else fails, restore your iPod touch to its original factory settings. This is only a last resort.
