    When I tried to open the iPod Touch box I couldn’t. It comes in a clear plastic case and I kept trying to open it. There is a small arrow on the side so I tried to lift the lid in that direction. I didn’t want to force the lid or break it so I drove down to the local Apple store (4 miles from my house) and asked a Genius. Apparently that arrow is attached to “clear” tape that needs to be lifted off the lid. Duh! I didn’t see or feel the tape and didn’t realize that arrow is the international symbol for peel the tape off… dumby!

    This deal almost seems too good to be true, but this is what they charged me. LOL

    The Touch plays music much louder than my old classic iPod, so I can hear much more detail thru my headphones. Awesome.

    Surfing the internet is much slower, which I expected since my laptop has a much faster chip, more memory and a video card. I really like how I can do a Google search and see anything. Making the pages larger is also cool. My big fat fingers make using the keyboard a challenge. I also find it difficult to tap the specific point that I want on the screen. My finger may hit a link near the one I’m aiming at.

    I have sync my calendar and contacts and they all came across correct. I had difficulty doing that with my old Macbook.

    The apps are ok. I haven’t spent much time with them.

    Docking has changed. I can’t use my old iPod Claasic’s dock or cables to charge the Touch. I must use the supplied cable.

    I have both my Yahoo and Cox email accounts, plus secured home WiFi accounts authorized on the Touch. It is pretty cool especially at what I paid for it!

    So confused... you drove to Apple to ask the resident idiots there how to open the box? And what was the actual deal...

    Mine sounds like less of a headache.

    New 32gb 2g touch $300
    - Sold 1g touch $170
    --------------------------------------
    = 32gb 2g touch $130
