I'm a PC user that never owned a Mac, and considering to buy an iPod touch 8gb (black) for business and academic purposes. I'm not a gamer. I have a load of questions but no one to ask and I can't get to an Apple store. I need your help. 1. Can I develop Apple apps on my PC? 2. How much average space do apps and other files take? (if I don't use the iCloud) Lectures from college Voice memos Youtube videos Saved emails Saved articles Pdf files One movie One episode of a tv series Calender 10 to 20 apps 3. How many years can I get out of the device? Will the irreplaceable battery die in 3 years? 4. It offers independence for all iOS devices. Can I get software updates and activate and set up the device with my PC? (I don't want to use wireless.) 5. Does it use a docking station for wired use? Can I get the same usage/functionality with wired use with a docking station as with wireless use? 6. Can iOS5 play flash? 7. How compatible is it with HTML5? 8. What are repairs like - warranty, etc., what if the camera malfunctions 2 years from now? Is it cheaper to replace it? 9. Does the voice recognition (Siri) work on the iPod touch too or do I need an Iphone for that? 10. Does the iPod touch have airplay mirroring? (Or is it only the Ipad 2?) 11. Am I expected to jailbreak it? Why? Under what circumstances? What does it give me?
