    Not a whole lot: Updates to safari, new podcast section in iTunes, small changes to the app store, option to disable auto-correct text, changes to way wide html emails are displayed in the mail app. That's about it.

    i just noticed that in 2.2, whenever you delete an app, it asks you to rate the app.

    I wonder why. It's not like the iPod touch is that much different from the iPhone in terms of software.

    If there even is a difference. I don't see why they couldn't have given us something like that as well as the iPhone users.

    No, Google Maps were not updated in 2.2 for the iPod touch.

    Why? Because Steve said so. Sometimes I just don't understand the reasons.

    Street view is of debatable use for Touch users as it could only be used when you have wi-fi access which is more often than not, non existant as there is no mobile data service (a different complaint :)) so it is only of use when going no where.

    Yeah it could be nice, but it doesn't rate that high on the wants list.

    Already found a bug, for some of my podcasts its not taking me to it's section in the itunes store when I click get more episodes. It's just taking me to the general podcast homepage.

    The new things I notice

    •The URL bar is now side by side to the google bar.

    •When u scroll down the URL bar goes away

    •When u save a pic by pressing wake and home at the same time it now makes a camera sound .

    •Now there is pictures next to that catgory in the app store . Also they added a release date in the app store.

    That's the only thing I notice differnt. I don't see slot of new features. I don't even see the google street view.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think those are new. I remember those in 2.1.

    As for the updated features, read the MR homepage. I think there are links to threads about how to find/use them.

    Drop a pin on a location and touch the pin. Then click the icon on the left side of the bar that pops up.

    I meant a little offense with mine, so I guess your post was a little different ;)

    Also when your in the home screen, hit the home button and from what ever page your on in the home screen, it will go back to page one. Big deal for me was the podcast download, that alone made me very happy :D

    The biggest thing for me is it is SO much faster. Everything is snappier, and no crashes. And no more annoying Wifi bugs either.
