    Are files downloadable through Safari on the 2G Touch? Like documents and mp3s? I know pictures can be saved, but what about other files types?

    If it is possible, is there a way transfer the files from the iPod to a computer?

    No. You cannot download other files aside from the ones allowed. Its kind of obvious. Piracy and all.

    why is downloading files (other than apps) not allowed then? i mean, most files aren't piracy and illegal to download. and piracy is up to the user. i can do piracy on my mac if i want.

    I'm guessing like, Text files, Office/iWork files, same as what most Apps already do.

    True. It's not like all mp3 files are pirated either. I spend a lot of time on 8bitcollective.org, which is a site that chiptune artists release their music for free download. I have limited monthly bandwidth, so downloading a ton of mp3's eats it up. But when I'm out and around I'd love to be able to pop into Safari and download some new chiptunes.

    That's a wish list, not what will actually be in the update.

    Because the second-gen touch cannot be jailbroken, you can save photos, view Office and text files, watch movies, and listen to mp3s, but you cannot download them (apart from the photos).

    Apple is too controlling to ever allow mp3 downloading through Safari on the touch.
