    I have the choice between a new 16gb 1st gen ipod touch or a 8gb 2nd gen ipod touch. Which one will be more fun? What one would you choose? Regards!

    The only reason you should choose 1G is if you want to jailbreak, everything else get a 2G, it's just like the 1G but with extra features.

    Yeah but is the new gen worth losing 8gb over?

    I would get the 2nd-gen iPod touch because 8GB suits me fine. But depending on how large of a library you have in terms of media (music, videos, photos) and how much of that you want to sync to your iPod, you could run out of space.

    You have to consider though that 8GB is roughly 1750 songs. Or, roughly 1000 songs and a few videos and a small album of photos. Are you really going to be listening to 1750 songs all at once, or can you shuffle the songs once in a while on your iPod when the ones you have get dull?

    All my opinions, but yours could be different.

    I'd take the 16GB 1G. You have twice as much storage and you can jailbreak it. All you are missing is speakers and volume buttons.

    Same for me. To me it's a no-brainer - even if you DON'T plan on jailbreaking. 8GB extra for the same price? IMO, you'd be stupid not to go for it.

    If you would use jailbreaking, it sets it apart even more.

    Go for the 16GB 1G.

    Exactly. And when would you ever really use the speakers? Headphones FTW!
