First off, this board has been very helpful for me learning about the iPOD Touch. I'm sorry if my question has been asked before but doing a few searches, I couldn't locate my answer. 1.) Now that the Jan software release is out, I'm assuming an iPOD Touch I order today will contain that (which I will make sure of), the SDK release in Feb, is that something I need to wait for so I don't have to pay or is that simply for developers to develop 3rd party apps? 2.) Any other reason I should hold off my purchase for a few months due to any foreseen memory updates? Reading the threads it seems the cost of the memory is still high so an upgrade is unlikely in the next few months, not sure if anyone has heard anything on this recently. 3.) What is an easy program to RIP DVDs so I can play them on my Touch? 4.) Do the DVDs need to be in a certain format or will this program convert them format needed for the Touch? Thank you in advance for your advice to my questions!
