Thought I'd introduce myself - I've been a previous Ipod 20gb 4th Gen user but this last year its sat pretty much stationary on my alarm clock! I also have an Ipaq HX2415 that I used for work - recording calendar events, contacts, emails, TomTom etc But I couldnt help but start looking for a new PDA!! Then I thought why not a new Ipod! a day later - ipod touch 2nd Gen 8Gb in my hands! Actually I liked the touches feel for a PDA - seemed to do everything I wanted it to do - VNC, RDP, Calendar (limited - see below), Contacts, Emails. I particularly like the emails much more intuitive than Windows Mobile (as well as faster). Calendar also is easier to use with your thumb, much less fiddly! However - I resented the idea of having iTunes on my Business Computer - just for syncing contacts/calendars. Also iTunes doesnt update whilst connected (eg ActiveSync will autoupdate your calendar with new events whilst its docked to the PC) - you have to press "Sync" every time, it also seems a lot slower! Anyway - it annoyed me enough to look further into it! Now I sync my outlook calendar to Google Calendars so I have out of office access to it - so I needed a way to syncronize with google via the ipod. There are solutions for this but I personally found them either too confusing or cost money! I finally came up with this http://www.nuevasync.com/ Which is essentially a free push MS exchange service that connects to google calendar. It does Calendars, Contacts, Emails & Tasks (although I'm not sure how it does those, since I'm not aware of a means of keeping tasks in the ipod). needless to say 5 mins later - using the native Exchange connector on my touch - my calendar syncs in realtime with my google calendar, which consequently sync with my outlook (and also my mobile Please Register or Log in to view images). It may seem convoluted but it works a treat with me! So I'm looking forward to a time when Jailbreaking comes about - although I'm not in a rush, app store seems to satisfy my application needs at the moment. Apps I've got so far are: Foxmarks WiFinder Joost iPlayer Cooliris Facebook IM+Lite Google Earth (although just for showing off!) eBay Mocha VNC/RDP Lite MotionX Dice PenguinLite Enigmo Crash Bandicoot Cart Topple Tap Tap Space Deadbeef Super Monkey Ball So anyway - thought I'd say hi - great site and post my initial feedback of this brill item!
