    I was wondering if leaving my new iPod Touch plugged in while I set all the settings, and play around will hurt it, or if it will just take the battery from the USB, like it does with my Magsafe on my Macbook. I want to keep the battery life good, but also want to use it like crazy to get used to it. Thanks in advance!

    If it's like most things that's fine. As long as you run it down to 20-30% every few weeks to exercise the battery it should stay about as fresh as it's going to get.

    Okay. I plan on using it a lot when I'm not near my computer, so that won't be a problem. Thanks. :)
