    Hi,
    I am going to buy an ipod touch i am deciding whether to spend the exctra money and get a second generation one. So far i have not found many extra benifits that would sway me towards the second Generation ipod. I was wandering can you watch videos off normal sites such as online movie sites or Google video or BBC Iplayer any way please get back to me ASAP.

    Cheers Fin.

    JailBreaking..

    So with Jailbreaking can you only get apps and themes you cant watch videos??.... and also if you cant watch videos like iplayer and stuff what is the real advantage of ipod touch 2nd Generation, it sounds to me like its worse if you cant Jailbreak it...

    u can't watch videos on regular sites. i've tried the quicktime thing, and it doesn't work.

    the advantages to the 2G over the 1G:
    Faster processor: your ipod won't lag as much.

    Better Battery life: with the new 2.2 firmware update, battery life is sweet.

    Speakers: you get iPhone quality speakers. mix reviews about these, but i like them.

    umm.. over all looks: it does look nicer than the 1G touch...

    doesn't overheat: the battery stays really cool.

    Advantages of the 1G:
    You can Jailbreak it: meaning unlimited possibilities, customizability, and fun

    YOU CAN watch other videos: when u jailbreak, there is a thing called dTunes. with dTunes, (for those of u who only used this for music ur missing out) u can download music and videos for free from many sites. kind of like a bit ******* kinda thing. very cool.
    the video portion has many different sites where u can download the videos from. theres probably like 15 different sources. if u can't find ur video at one of those, ur brt off just putting the video on ur ipod manually. and of course u do need wifi to do all of this...

    Easier to connect to Wifi: the 1G has fewer issues with connecting to a wireless network. there are a few problems with the 2G about finding and connecting to the network.


    SO...

    the way u should go is up to u. if i was in ur position. i would get the 1G for now to tie u over, Jailbreak it, and make it really cool, sell it on ebay when the Jailbreak for the 2G comes out, Get a 2G touch, and then jailbreak it. yeah.... so there's ur advantages and whatnot.
