    Many of you seem to like this device.
    At the same time a lot of people hate it.
    Considering the reviews and what people say, they look pretty nice.
    From what place is the best place to get one?
    Also what reasons could there be not to get one?
    Good Touch alternatives?
    So yea, I'm just wondering, this seems like a legit site.

    If you want to jailbreak (hack, modify, customize) your device, get a first generation. If you aren't into stuff like that, get the second generation. If you wan't a first generation, i suggest buying a refurbished model from Apple's online store; they are as good as new and they are cheap. If you wan't a second generation, just buy it from Apple (online) because you can get an engraving on the back of your device and you get free shipping.
    And, yes this is a legit site; easily the best source of iPod Touch news out there.

    I have a 32gb 2G and I love it. I use it everyday to check my email, browse the forums, and watch youtube videos when I'm too lazy to get out of bed

    Since you don't have any Apple Stores near you, I would say to get one from Best Buy or Wal-Mart. It's pretty much the same everywhere . . .

    What's the differce between the 2 generations?


    I run custom firmware on my PSP, which has many advantages. What advantages would custom firmware have with this device?

    First generation has no speakers, second does. Second gets volume buttons. Second has better battery life. First generation can be hacked; second can't.

    It's pretty much the same as M33 on the PSP; themes, homebrew, tweaks, add-ons, etc.

    The 2nd-gen has speakers, line-in audio, a curved aluminum back, Nike+ and a chrome bezel over the 1st-gen. At this time the 1st-gen can be jailbroken and the 2nd-gen cannot.

    I bought mine a year ago. Didn't know what it was, but saw a picture of it on the web and decided it just looked too sexy to ignore. I've always loved my Touch, but never used it much, until recently.

    Recently, the new 2.2 firmware came out and opened it all up to me. Now, I can't put it down. It's just awesome fun. I wouldn't be without it now.

    It does all I ever want, except clean my car

    I can't leave my house without mine. It's definitely one of the best devices out there.
    Oh and sjleworthy, your's must be defective; mine cleans my car.
