    Congratulations everyone. You've not only hacked a protected "iPod", you're using Apps intended for a device that's supposed to be available for use only on an iPhone activated with AT&T on a 2 year contract...

    What are your next steps to keep it going?

    having to write updates to fix this crap will be the excuse that SJ gives tomorrow for delaying Leopard until Q1 2008.

    I don't know about the rest of you guys but when I left the store with my iPod touch, I really knew there was a brand new Apple Newton in disguise inside that box. Mine decided to remove said disguise last night.

    Mac users think different. Steve Jobs always loved talking about how the dreamers, the innovators are the kinds of people who like to buy Macs. Well, we're just extending that ideology to the iPod Touch.

    one question, what if you have more apps that can not be displayed on the original screen, any scroll bar?

    Serious though, for me it was just an interesting experiment. The only one I'm ever even remotely likely to use is notes, the rest are fairly useless without a Wi-Fi access point and the only places I have them are at home and at work, where I have computers. Unless something really interesting comes out that needs jailbreak I'll probably update when the next update is released (or when they fix some of the bugs with playlists)

    The iPhone doesn't really interest me even though I am on O2 (who are the UK provider) because I spend so little on my phone. Just looking at my online banking I last topped up (£10) in Mid-September and I still have £4.55 on there (and that is quite a short space of time looking at the previous transactions) so there is nothing that would get me to switch to a £35 a month contract for a phone that is missing some of the things that even my current £80 phone has. I only really use the phone when I need to, not like my brother and sister who sit there texting people, if I really need to speak to someone I'll call them (most of the time that is basically just to tell someone I am running late because of the trains), otherwise it can wait until I see them next.

    So true. The Steve very early in his career helped "hack" people into free long distance calling. It seems to me that the hacking community is simply carrying on with that tradition.

    I own this thing 100% and its not in any contract or whatever, I can do what I want with MY iPod. You do what you would like with yours.

    I wholeheartedly agree. I shelled out $400, releasing Apple of having anything to do with it. Ya, it probably voids the warranty, but they won't know after a nice restore or 30 seconds in the microwave.

    Is there a SINGLE thing on the IPT that AT&T can complain ???

    And anyway...

    Well, putting iPhone apps like Mail and Google Maps onto the Touch could technically be copyright violation, but apart from that there isn't anything Apple and AT&T can do outside of Apple voiding the warranty.

    And you're probably forgetting some of us aren't from the US or the UK. We don't even have the option of an iPhone. But Apple know something like that would have a hard time working in European countries where cellphones have been around for longer. No way before hell freezes over will I enter a contract just for a phone!

    Off-topic, I know, but the topic wasn't that cool in the first place so here goes:

    Is this true?? My main experience is here in France, but for SURE cell phones developed here later than in the US. Where, besides Japan, did they develop first?

    Believe it or not the US has been quite far behind in cellphone technology. Scandinavia's pretty much been pioneer in mobilephones (Nokia in Finland, Ericsson in Sweden). Not many years ago the US was still using NMT networks instead of GSM. So the iPhone is on quite a fresh market of cutting edge mobilephone tech.
