    No compass.

    On FM Tuner people say it is capable.

    maybe for you, some people might find that they dont use radio or compass. I have a radio on my other mp3player and i never used it.

    No, not so much the compass, but the radio is the reason I'm going to be buying the Nano

    If you find the 3rd Gen to be a waste of money where does that leave the other generations of iPod Touch? They were more expensive for less.

    3g has the capability for radio, we just have to wait for the Gestapo to release firmware to activate it

    It has a radio, but it is deactivated. I'm guessing the next major firmware upgrade will activate it. Maybe 4.0?
