I just recently returned an 8GB touch and just got a 16GB and I swear everything is faster. Webpages are loading faster and I'm sitting where I always sit so signal is same. And when I pinch websites closer everything comes into focus faster etc. Since it has more space is it possible it is using more of that space as virtual memory? Or did I just get a funky 8GB? Also I wanted to add that the album cover flow does not get blurry on this 16GB. My other one did and I thought it was just a software issue. I've been using this new one for about 2 hours now and I haven't seen any blurriness. The old one would constantly have blurry artwork.
