That's it, I've had it. The iPod/touch is way too much trouble. Constant "upgrades" to firmware and O/S that wipes things out left and right. Being effectively required to work with Apple's ideas of how things MUST be regarding damn near everything. Typical though, just look at the Mac. There's more programmability and adaptability in Windows as an O/S than an iPod. But this... it's up there with building an airplane but forgetting the wings. I suppose the design team went out for drinks & lobotomies right before they were supposed to take up the matter of whether or not to add the most incredibly obvious, useful features to the thing. Amazing, one must hook up to a friggin' computer to create a friggin' playlist that is NOT actually *wiped out* by making the huge, Earth-shaking step of hooking the iPod up to a PC and *gasp* syncing it!!! It's like they decided to make this thing so annoying that one would be forced to buy the next gen of it to get this simplest of conveniences. Yeah, you're right. But I'm gonna buy a Nexus One instead.
