I think I sort of broke my 5.5g iPod...dropped it in the sink last night while it was filled with water, and now it's only intermittently seeing my computer. Soooo I may need a new MP3 player. I'm not sure how well the Touch would actually suit me as I use hardware controls CONSTANTLY on my regular one, and having to look at the screen to adjust volume, fast forward, etc., sounds incredibly annoying...but I'm still intrigued by the idea that maybe one day it could replace my Palm too (although it's not there yet). Anyway I also for the time being need an external storage device...only I guess initially the Touch/iPhone didn't work as an external drive. Has that been changed? Does it show up like the "regular" iPod models do now? (Though I read that it does now...?) If not, I should probably just go with an 8GB Nano. Oh, and can you shut off Wifi on the Touch permanently, so it never powers on? I've heard it can keep receiving email even when it's "off" (ie in standby), but I don't the wifi on EVER-even when the unit is "on" unless I specifically enable it. Actually I'd love using an iPhone as a PDA/MP3 player-seems like it would suit me a lot better than the Touch, but I guess you can't buy them unless you're going to use the phone part.
