    That's a nice review. He mentioned something I hadn't even thought about - the ability to control the iPod through touch without looking. I do that now, even to the extent of being able to turn the volume up or down through the outside of my pocket.

    Yea the battery life is short. At least I got more iPod add-on then a Apple store does.

    As for mail I got a phone and a .mac account to cover that.

    The best part is I don't need a laptop to connect to the net. Just turn it on and go surfing.

    The touch isn't really designed for 'on the go' listening - even to change the volume you have to take it out of your pocket and fiddle with it, which is inadvisable in a city if you want to keep it very long... and it's a complex enough UI that using it in a car would be horribly dangerous (but we have in-car stereos for that). For office or home listening it's fine though.

    Its good to see some almost official acknowledgment of a qc problem by Apple.

    At long last. According to someone on the official Apple iPod touch discussion board:

    Sounds like they're taking some steps forward at least...
