So I went out and bought a 16 gb ipod touch for my wife to use with Grad school. Her grad program records all seminars/lectures and also has online classes where she has to download presentations. I bought the touch for the additional $$$ because it has better video capabilities and I figured she could download the lectures (video and commentary) and sync them to the itouch and use the opportunity to go study somewhere other then the house all day (ie- beach). ...BUT... it appears that apple has this ****ing ridiculously lame policy that prevents ANY video from being sync'd to the itouch unless it was purchased by the itunes store. It will let you play youtube vids... but you can't save them. So basically, the reason I bought- to play school vids... is ****ing pointless because it won't play them. There has got to be a way to mod, or download softward to bypass this? Yes? For you bigtime Macbook people... how do I do this? I need help... or I'm going to have to return this worthless piece of ****. (sorry I'm kinda mad that for $300... I can't do something so ****ing simple) *(we have a macbook btw too) Thanks for the help... and I apologize about the frustration and profanity.
