    Hey everyone, i'm new to the forums so please forgive me if this has already been asked. My searching skills stink. I have an 8gig 2g ipod touch wrapped waiting for me for christmas. I got a luxmo crystal case and a screen protector. I was just wondering how much have you guys found the 8 gig to hold without any side effects like slowdowns or whatever, if that even happens? Any tips you have for a noob? I'm going to update it to 2.2 when i plug it in. Do screen protectors hinder the touch's screen sensitivity any? I'd like to put it on because if i throw it in my pocket and it gets scratched itll bug me, but if it will hinder it's ability to work i won't bother. So any tips or tricks for a first time user of an apple product? It's going to take a while to get this thing down i bet... Oh and btw, your forum is awesome.

    Welcome.
    Yes, this forum does have its moments.

    But anywhoo, I don't think you'd experience much of a slowdown unless you had like only 100MB left or less. The 2G has a better processor than the iPhone and iPod touch 1G, which helps the speed.
    As the to the screen protector, most do not effect the sensitivity of the screen.

    As a first time Apple-user, I suggest you sit back and have fun

    Thanks buba. Yeah, i've owned creative MP3 player. Ive had a zen touch and a muvo. The touch was a 40 gig and the muvo is a 1 gig. The touch was a hard drive based and the muvo is a flash. The reason i say this is because i know the touch is a flash based MP3 player which is good because i'm really active and hard drives tend to be fragile as far as being bumped around. The ipod format i will have to get used to, if it is any different than other MP3 players. I like the idea of itunes, and it runs great on my computer despite other peoples complaints. It's easy to organize and it seems well thought out, more so than the creative software. Do you recommend any other accessories that are a must have besides a case? I'll mainly be using it when i BMX (althought im not 100% on that) or i'm in the car or at a place bored haha. I like to have the inline volume controls on my headphones and prefer the buds as opposed to the big soft ear ones. Does apple make these?

    The iPod Touch 2g does not slow down unless it is really close to being full. The improved proccessor in the 2g helps it stay up to speed. As far as the screen protector goes, they usually don't affect the sensitivity very much. Sure, if you put something over the screen it is always going to be a little bit affected, but with most screen protectors it is not noticeable. I'd say go ahead and apply the screen protector.
