    So the ipod is pretty awesome but how have you used it to be like a pocket computer?

    Is there a way to be able to work on papers and be able to send that through email?

    Documents To Go is one way. There are two versions of it out, one for $9.99 and another for $14.99. The only distinction I see is that the $14.99 one supports Exchange attachments.

    I was thinking the same thing as I ate lunch today. Across from me was a woman checking her mail and web sites on a macbook. I can do that on my Touch. Then she open up a word processor and started typing into some document. I couldn't do that. I can open and view documents sent via email, but not create or edit them. If someone would make a bluetooth keyboard that would work with the Touch/iPhone, then port MS Offics apps to it, you might have a real working computer. Until then, it's just a pretender. ;)

    You know you can edit the title, right?

    And yes, it's a great pocket computer.

    Where the fresh snow don't go.
    I had to check for a place to eat...I had my laptop on me but I didn't want to turn it on then wait for it to load...so I whipped out the iPod touch and it in 30 secs

    The tiny keyboard is surprisingly easy to type on, and it does an amazing number of things for it's size.

    I'd really like to see them bring out an external keyboard for it, although I know I'm in a small minority on that one.

    I had one of the near-original Palm Pilots, so the iPod Touch consistently blows me away. It has a faster processor than one of my laptops did!

    That and it reminds me how old I am :p

    I'd love to be able utilize a foldable bluetooth keyboard. Being able to easily do my writing anywhere would be a huge productivity bonus.

    Come on Apple...WM has had this for years.

    I saw some of those keyboards at Fry's. I can definitely type 3x-5x faster on my iPod touch virtual keyboard than one of those.

    I thought you were one of those heavy-duty computer nerds that nick names their electronics. Thank you for your correction.

    Then we were looking at different keyboards. I was looking at a full sized keyboard that just happens to fold up into a small brick.

    I can type 85 wpm net on a full sized keyboard and I definitely can't do that with my thumbs on a touch.
