    Everyone is always saying it would be nice to have a wi-fi on/off switch on the iPod's home screen. Would it be plausible for Apple to add a feature where you could simply double-tap the safari icon to turn the wi-fi on, and vice versa. I don't know if its possible for Apple to add this functionality to the safari icon, but if they could I have no doubt this would be the best way to implement this feature into the iPod.

    that would cool, but Safari isnt the only thing that uses Wi-Fi. i.e. mail, stocks, weather, maps.

    Or when you double tap home button, it brings up a wifi on/off as well as the music volume indicator

    or tap the home button three times to bring up basic settings.

    I see what you're saying but I don't think that would really matter.

    Or tap the wifi icon to turn off wifi, and on the iPhone, tap the carrier to go to Airplane mode.

    That'd be rather slick, in my opinion.

    I see this coming in a future software update, because it's been done through third-party software so it's obviously possible.

    Well, based on your logic it is.

    Not to start a flame war, or anything of the sort.

    Apple should implement this feature...just add a similar airplane mode function somewhere!

    How can you tell what my logic is when all I say is that I believe that it could be implimented in the future?
