    Well I went to Costco to pick up a 32gb iPod Touch but they ended up selling their last one 30 minutes before I got there :(

    I have some questions though:

    1.) How long do you think it will be until Cosco gets a new shipment of iPod Touches?

    2.) Is there an app or something for the iPod Touch that allows you to browse the app store on the iPod via wifi and you can download apps directly from iPod to iPod?

    3.) Can I download files off the internet via wifi onto my iPod? Does the iPod need to be jailbroken?

    1. Don't know, sorry.

    2. Yes, it's called "App Store".

    3. You can download pictures off the internet without jailbreak - no files though. There might be something available to jailbroken iPod Touches allowing you to do so but if there is, I'm not aware of it.

    Edit: What do you mean by "iPod to iPod" in question 2?

    You're right. Hold you finger on the image, and a dialogue pops up.

    1. Stores usually get shipments of items everyday, but what comes in that shipment, I don't know.

    2. Isn't that app called "App Store." You know, that thing that comes preloaded onto every iPod Touch.

    3. You need to be Jailbroken to download files from Safari. You can save pictures though. (I'm pretty sure of this, but if I'm wrong, someone correct me.)

    1) No idea. I would suspect that it varies from Costco to Costco.

    2) Every iPod touch comes with an App Store app that will allow you to purchase/get apps directly from the App Store over WiFi. There is no way, however, to transfer apps directly from one iPod to another without the use of iTunes as an intermediary.

    3) Download, no; however, you are able to view files on the internet (by clicking a pdf link, for example), but there is no way to download a file for offline use.

    Ok tyvm and dang, I wish I could download files via the wifi since my home internet is really crappy... (dial-up).

    EDIT: DrawnToLife and EricNao both have different answers for question 3, can someone confirm if its possible or not? :S

    You mean one can only view the pdf files but not able to save the files to the iPodTouch? How come? What about other formats such as Words, PowerPoints, .rtf, etc?
