    So it's christmas and I thought 'Hey i'm going to give away my itouch to someone who needs it'.
    Turns out, I backed up my itouch, gave away my itouch, now i need my notes from my itouch.

    After reading some threads, I found out that my notes are in my backed up info (if not, please tell me).

    So question is, how do i open my backup notes from my Mac pro?

    Ps. I also have an iphone, can that help me somehow?

    The only way to do it is by restoring the backup to either an iPhone or iPod touch - you can't actually open it up and browse it on your computer. So basically you will have to restore your iPhone and then restore it from the backup of the iPod touch, get the notes off it, then restore it again and this time restore it from the actual iPhone backup.

    There's a program called "iPhone Backup Extractor" that should do what you want. Google for it.

    Your notes are usually stores in Mail.app under reminders. Otherwise the sqlite file is a database...you can search google for a sqlite database app for Mac, there are a few.
