    My roommate wants to update but his computer won't even turn on over the last 3 months. Can he update on another computer and not cross apps/music/etc.

    Sorry if this has been asked before

    Assuming your talking about updating the firmware, you won't be able to keep the music, video, apps, contacts, email, etc. You'll either have to fix the computer it originally synced with or erase the music and other stuff on your iPod/iPhone/iPad and reload it on.
