    It's amazing how many people haven't heard of the iPod Touch. Everyone who sees it squeals in delight to see an iPhone.

    That gets annoying, but I've won over 4 of my friends by showing them that it's basically an iPhone w/o the calling feature. Of course it's the jailbroken features that convinces them to immediately run to an Apple store and get one.

    BTW, the Maps function totally saved my @$$ when I was completely lost in Brooklyn.

    From a female who bought a male a Nano for Christmas last year.....

    If you want an IPT and you are weary of getting one due to the Nano then don't be. The Nano is clearly best when you want to be active. The IPT, while they have arm bands and such, is so inappropriate for say working out. I know people use it for this and it will withstand some force, but the Nano is flash-based and better if you want to walk (fitness), run, bike, etc. I would go get one if you can and let your girlfriend know the Nano still has a purpose. I have a Nano and a 5g, the Nano came after the 5g and is so much more convenient when I work out.

    In other words, I wouldn't be mad if the guy I bought one for went out and bought a new IPT if he wanted one. Well I couldn't be mad now, but that's another dumb story. ;)

    Yup same thing with me. I showed a friend mine in the morning, he said he couldn't stop thinking about it all day and he left work early just to buy it.

    I'm made four people as well get them, and I hacked them all for them. It's actually quite fun.

    All my friends that have seen mine want it hardcore. I haven't seen any others in the wild until my flight a few days ago, dude sitting next to me pulled one out. :)

    ...and another sale.

    A colleague at work saw mine overnight (daylight saving clock change on a mainframe here in the UK). He is now going the thought processes of how to justify one to his wife who would be using a gramaphone as her PMP of choice - and that might be too bleeding edge for her liking.

    Anyone know what gets drool off the iPoT's screen easily :D

    Off to bed now,
    Tony.
