    Is it true that on the Ipod touch and the Iphone that you HAVE to use itunes to get songs on there, unlike the other ipods where you could get songs for free?

    Because I was thinking of buying the iPod touch, but i'm not going to if I have to pay for all the songs...

    iTunes client yes, but not iTunes Music Store.

    i.e. you can upload any supported file to the iPod Touch/iPhone regardless of where you obtained the file.

    You can't (yet) use any of the third party iPod managerssinec the iPT/iPhone don't present themselves as file systems.

    you don't need to buy songs from iTMS, but you do need to "organize" your songs with iTunes, because iPT only communicate with iTunes.

    You can have all the songs you have in iTunes (iTStore buys, CD rips etc.) :)

    EDIT: Ouch, too late!

    you need iTunes to load the iPod. If you already have MP3's, you don't need to pay any more money (except for the iPod).

    EDIT: everyone is on the ball today

    Yes, you can still steal your music as long as you don't mind opening yourself up to expensive litigation.

    P2p

    FYI the $220,000 settlement was in the States. The Supereme Court of Canada has deemed P2P file sharing as legal in Canada. So limewire away! ;-)

    Not totally. Demonoid.com( similar to any other torrent site) was taken legal action upon by Canadian lawyers and so they block all Canadian IP's now.
