    I was charging my 1 week old iPod Touch 4g, and when I slid to unlock, the icons were wiggling, I slide over the the page with a few apps and all the downloaded apps have an 'X' on them and won't respond when I tap them.

    I up'd the volume to see if there was any sound, none.

    I powered down and back up, it went back to normal.

    What was this, some kinda virus?

    Apps downloaded (all free versions):
    Unblock meFree
    Mirror
    angry birds
    FallDown!
    NightVision

    I have no wifi, these were from iTunes.
    Ver 4.3.2

    Any ideas?

    It's for removing apps from your i-Device. Just press the home button and they'll go back to normal. To reactivate it, tap and hold one of the app icons.

    And in case you want to ever delete an app, press and hold one until it jiggles then press the x.

    Wow, call me a NOOB!
    Thanks, I think I've got some reading to do. Is there a site that has some good reading about all the in's and out's of this thing?

    I bought it to test some apps that I'll be writing soon.

    Thanks again, KarlJay.

    While they're wiggling, you can rearrange them too!

    Not trying to be condescending, but you could start with the manual.

    Naturally, the first concern regarding an issue with an Apple product.

    You've been using Windows too long. Don't be afraid anymore. :p
