I guess this is a stupid question for most of you, but I am pretty clueless when it comes to iPods. I have an old iPod that mainly sits on my Bose system and it holds/plays my complete music library. I just recently bought my daughter a 32GB iPod touch for graduation, but I have never paid much attention to these "generations". The refurb iPod touch, 8GB (current gen) mentioned in the title is how Apple is advertising one of their special buys in the refurb store. I bought one, with the sole intention on using it on my bike via a handbar bracket. I only need 8G because I will do a few special exercise playlists rather than my whole library. I have an iPad and an iMac for all my other computing needs. I'm thinking that the iPod Touch will work well on the bike because I can play it without headphones, so I can still hear things around me. I want to get and iSkin for it, but I need to know what generation it is. From what I have read so far, I'm thinking 1st gen, but it would be great if someone could clue me in here. Thanks in advance. **EDIT** I guess I should mention that the reason I am asking this basic question is because when I looked at iSkin covers, there is apparently a difference between the different generations. I imagine the same will be true for the handlebar brackets.
