    Looks like it's out a little early for iPod Touch owners.

    Anyone want to report back it's purchasable? Linky goes to the page for me, but I have iPhone. :p

    I will be going home from work and updating my iPod touch. I can't wait to get cut/copy/paste and then buy a MS Office like s/w for it. I wan't to start doing some real work on my iPod.

    i clicked it to see what would happen and it started going but then it just stopped. i think it only did that though because i have the 3.0 GM downloaded already. i'm in the US

    Link works in the US, and loads the page, after you click on the Buy Now button, you have to click on the SLA's Agree button, you get a session timeout.

    WHOA! Worked the second time!!

    BUT, the download button didn't work. So will I be charged a second time if I try again?

    the link indeed works (UK store) and clicking download brings up a page saying the software is downloading. in the downloads tab to the left, it says '2.0' for the software download, and won't actually download anything. seems a bit of an early glitch or false alarm.

    It's also telling me i've already purchased the item. (presumably thinking along the lines of already downloaded 2.0)

    has anyone actually got the 3.0 download from this?

    My session did not time out. I completed the purchase and was lead to a page saying that I should see a "Download and Install" prompt, and that if I did not see it, then I should click "Check for Updates." There's no button and iTunes says that 2.2.1 is the latest version available. I'm guessing that the actual software won't go live until tomorrow.

    I see the usual tentative $1 charge on my bank account, not a full $10, so I'm not expecting to see a full deduction until tomorrow either.

    It looks ready to me. I'm going to wait until tomorrow morning at least though. I just want to avoid the headaches of last year. If there are any problems, I don't want to get caught up in it.

    I have a problem. For some reason, when I go to plug in my 2nd Gen iPod Touch into itunes 8.2, I don't get any response. I have tried resetting it, but nothing happens. This never happened to me in 8.1.1.

    Same here, download and install, but no download and no install, nothing from Update button. Oh well! :)

    On a whim I tried changing the local clock, no dice.

    £5.99 for us UK people - though as I'm selling my 16gb Touch I'll let whoever buys it pay to upgrade.

    Nice thought, but the download doesn't actually work. It just pulls down 2.0 again.

    link in the first post consitenly links to the purchase page but when i press download, not purchase for 9.95, it just flashes something under the download spot in the side bar then it comes up and says thanks you for downloading, but nothing was downloaded.

    edit: it downloads a .4kb file titled iphone 2.0 software update. must be the same link and server location last years update was at.

    yellow: contact apple and tell them what happend you could either get a refund or they may let you download the 3.0 update without purchasing again.

    iPodgeek: it will be out when it's out, people are speculating a release at 1m california time
