I knew I would like it and I was looking forward to getting it, but I never anticipated loving it this much or using it this often. It's an incredibly useful little gadget. If you're on edge, go for it!:apple:

I'm similarly pleased. I purchased mine after much consternation and I've found myself using it at least 4 or 5 hours per day. It's replaced my 12" PB as my daily device (much to my back's joy). Very happy with my purchase which I initially anticipated to be just an iPod.

To be honest I'm not 100% happy with the 2.0+ software though.....been a little more buggy than what I accept from Apple.

I'm glad you love your Touch. Although there are things about them that could stand improving, the Touch is the best pocket web browser out there.

Here's to many happy years of "Touching". ;)

Ditto for me too. Wife is beginning to think I'm strange, playing with it even bringing it to bed with me.

here in portland there is quite a bit of free wi-fi throughout the city which is great. i feel bad for those without such connectivity.

Thats my biggest problem here in South Africa... we have almost no free wireless... But I still love using mine at home... so much easier to lie on the couch with my iPod Touch instead of my big heavy PB 17"

I've been thinking about getting an iPod Touch for the past few months, but my only reservation is the extra gadget/device to lug around. I guess it would/could replace my current iPod, which is good, but I also use a smartphone. Do you think this would be overkill?

I mean, I HATE that I can't get an iPhone because of AT&T's exclusivity, but for now, the next best thing would be the Touch.

What do you guys think?

Also, how do you get connectivity if you're in an area that doesn't have wireless? Do you pay for connectivity elsewhere or how does it work?

TIA.

Sounds cool, but unfortunately I am in my Sprint contract for 2 more years. Just got a new iClone in January! :(

I'm from Fort Collins and wish I was going to that game! Went to the game 3/5 years I was at CSU and wasn't able to go this year as I have things I gotta do tomorrow (going to the game takes all day lol) but definitely plan on watching it

Are you going?

GO RAMS!

Can't wait to get mine. I'm just waiting to see if there are going to be any updates, and then I'll buy. Sold my Nokia N73, my DS, and got some money, so I'm just waiting for the next Apple event. :]

I agree. The iPod Touch is da' bomb! I have run into a few hiccups as others have, but, overall, the technology really is incredible. I love being able to check my email and surf the Web without having to boot up my Mac Pro everytime.

How funny. I am also in FC and I am also a CSU alum. Didn't go to the game and glad I didn't. Once again. CU beat us. Ugh!!! Spare us the humiliation.

I just looked at the Apple Store online and saw the prices of the iPod Touch. Ouch!!! Perhaps I will wait until September to see if there are in fact, upgrades and price decreases.

Ditto all the praise. It has exceeded my expectations by far. It's an amazingly capable device.
yeah :D

and hopefully when they release the new revision to match the iPhone 3G
it will again do more, faster, and better and exceed our expectations of what we thought was possible

Translation:pRICE CUT (about $100 or more)
-A 64GB Model!!! (get rid of 8GB - too little)
