I bought a new iPod Touch to use as a personal organizer that also had multimedia capability, something I thought would be no big deal. The calendar feature allows you to set event alarms like a standard organizer. And the Touch has a transducer that can emit clear alarm signals. It works great with the Touch's alarm feature. I was surprised to discover that setting an event in the calendar produces no sound. The Touch will wake up and flash a visual warning. But it won't be accompanied by an alarm. That makes the Touch fairly useless as an organizer. After all, I don't have the screen dangling in front of my face all day.... I first took the Touch to the Genius Bar at my local Apple store. The geniuses there were mystified. I called Apple's phone tech support at the guy there was equally puzzled but finally got me an answer: the Touch does not support event sounds. It could, but it doesn't. And the tech support guy had no idea whether the feature would be activated in a future update. His only suggestion was to additionally set the alarm clock for every event I scheduled. If I knew a fix was coming up shortly, that might be an acceptable stopgap. But it's certainly no substitute. So for those of you who are considering getting a Touch to use as a personal organizer, be aware: it doesn't function that way at present.
