    As a committed Apple computer user and a recent buyer of iPod touch, I cannot understand Apple's thinking in making editing of calendar impossible. OK, we can sync with the computer but making new entries while away from home is still a back-of-the-envelope job. Why??????

    Guess they needed to make the iPod Touch deliberately inferior to the iPhone. The iPod is stable, the iPhone is a new product for Apple.

    I jailbroke my touch, installed the calendar from the iPhone and enabled editing. I now have editable calendar that syncs with my desktop-calendar :)

    Calendar editing

    Yes - but a) you had to have an iPhone (which I won't have), b) you had to invalidate your touch guarantee and c) you had to know how to do it - which I don't. How much more sensible to provide the faciltity in the first place.

    I believe Steve Jobs has already stated that this bug (Yea right) would be fixed in a future release.

    It's probably becuase calender syncing is only supported in Leopard...which isn't out yet.

    It's because they don't want to cannibalize sales from their upcoming 'iEnvelope' product.
