    hi
    i am interested in getting the ipod touch 16GB for christmas. I am updating from my sony mp3 which i had for about two years, and time for an upgrade.

    I was reading extensively about the ipod touch. The reviews seem to be generally very good ones, but in forums, i keep reading about problems. For example, the video darkness problem (week 38 or something). In addition, the applications automatically closing or songs cancelling by itself. Not to mention the entire touch turning itself off periodically. I read the video darkness issue has somewhat been solved by a new firmware, but i was wondering if there is any definite solution should my ipod touch get those problems.

    so i am wondering if 500 dollars (including tax, case, warranty) is a good investment. i have saved up enough money for that so money's not a problem as of moment, but i dont want to buy something that i will have to constantly take it back for repair and exchange. Should i get the ipod touch?? any opinion/help would be appreciated.

    thanks~

    About your apprehensions, I've had my iPod since October 10 and though I had my share of it's bugs (mostly software bugs), never have I thought I made a mistake of investing on such a cool gadget. And fyi, I've been an iPod user since the 3rd gen (and it's still working), 80GB 5.5G (also working as if it were new, with the Classic hack), and two 2nd gen iPod Shuffles (Blue and Silver).

    To determine what week an iPod touch is, look at the serial number. The 4th and 5th digits are the week number.

    I guess it's the same with everything you're interested in buing and do some reading and googling on. It's logical that accounts of problems, bugs, bricks and all kinds of trouble far outnumber the "im so happy with my new (insert product name here)" posts. Whenever you're doing research in forums find this distortion of reality, as people are more likely to post when they have a problem than when they're simply satisfied owners.

    fwiw, as of yet I have not encountered any problem with my jailbroken ipodTouch (week 44 16GB FW1.1.1).

    If you've got $500 to spend on a portable media player, you can't do much better. Of course $500 would buy alot of other cool stuff too.

    The Touch is MUCH better if you've got a wireless router both at home and where you work. Without internet access it's just another 16GB media player. You could do better and spend less getting a new Zune 80GB.
