    Press the sync button, it'll backup the iPod Touch.

    Works for me, but make sure your iOS is up to date.

    Besides the iTunes store lets you re-download all your apps.

    Jailbreak for a little eye candy? Why not wait for iOS 5.

    Since iTunes keeps track of all your purchased apps and you can resync your music without much fuss why so concerned about backup? Jailbreaking can be more grief than it's worth.

    FYI, it does backup your pirated apps. What are you trying to transfer onto your computer?

    If you want to transfer music, there are some apps out there that will let you transfer ipod -> comp (e.g. Senuti). If you want to transfer pics/vids...you should be able to do that without having to use an app for it. Just make sure you save your baseband via tinyumbrella and back up via itunes before jailbreaking. Trial and error is the best way to learn =)

    The iPod Touch will not function as an internet hotspot. The only way to connect to the net is via wi-fi. If other devices can also connect via wi-fi, there is no need for an iPod Touch.

    Just go to the other computer you had synced it with and deauthorize it. Then try syncing it again with the computer you're on now.

    Theoretically, there are situations in which using your iPod touch as a WiFi hotspot might be doable with a jailbreak.

    If you have a regular cell phone that supports bluetooth tethering, and if the iPod touch's bluetooth stack could be modified to support being on the receiving end of an IP-over-Bluetooth connection, then you could tether your cell phone's Internet connection to your iPod touch.

    Then, if you were able to modify the iPod touch's WiFi connection to provide hotspot capability, then you could share the Bluetooth-tethered Internet connection with other WiFi devices through the iPod touch's WiFi.

    This is a pretty convoluted process, but (especially if your cell phone doesn't have native WiFi capability but it does have Bluetooth capability) it might have theoretical usefulness.
