I recently purchased my familiy's first iPod Touch for my 10 year old son and I thought I'd share some experience on my findings on protecting the content accessed. I'm on day 1, so I may tweak this as things develop but this is what I've come up with so far... I adopted a solution from OpenDNS (google them) about a year ago to handle content filtering on my iMac. Basically set up a free account and point your desktops to their DNS servers. I had to download an extra program (widget?) to keep in sync with my dynamic IP but wasn't too high of a hurdle. The ideal situation is where you can point your router(gateway) to their DNS servers. Unfortunately I am unable to do that. I have AT&T Uverse (absolutely love it) and they need to nail down their DNS server designations because it handles IP, Voice, and IPTV, so I was troubled on how to point my son's DNS lookups to OpenDNS's servers. I tried to hook up a seperate wireless router and had way too many issues... I just entered Open DNS's DNS servers (184.108.40.206, 220.127.116.11) into my son's iPod Touch and it is working great. I will admit I skimmed the surface on Apple's parental control's, but it seemed to be more about restricting the apps that they provide and didn't provide the level of inspection I was looking for. Not quite sure my solution would work if I didn't download the "app" that tracks my dynamically allocated IP address, but it's running in the background of my iMac so be it.. If my son is anything like me (and he is) he'll probably figure out a way in the future to get around this.. Anyway, my message here is if you aren't certified router specialist - I found a relatively easy way to do it. I haven't had it in place long enough to see if the Ipod Touch forgets is DNS settings if its powered down.. I gather won't work if he's out and about on some other wifi connection but there is also an element of trust we have. If I see any hiccups I'll update this this thread. I've googled iPod Touch parental controls and didn't really see a DNS based solution which is pretty clean.. I will spend a few more cycles on the parental controls on the iPod touch to restrict any content that is questionable, but so far I think I'm OK with Apple's definition of deciency - but again I'm on day 1.5 with this thing... Please share your solutions if you are in a similar situation. Mostly trying to keep the Internet (safari) from being abused/abusive at such a young age.. My $0.02.
