    Can someone please explain what generations are?
    Like when they release a new generation iPod do they do any physical updates to the iPod or do they just update software and if so can't u just update ur software on ur iPod to bring it up to date?

    Yes, but don't be confused with iphones. The iPhone 3G is third generation technology (mobile phone wise), but the second generation iphone.

    I don't know what madness is going to happen when they release the 3rd gen iphone

    Yup, you can say so, mate... Of course there is also a likely update on the firmware as well, for a new generation iPod...

    yes, physically...

    but like some generations may include speakers (ipod touch 2G) whereas the first generation didn't

    most of the time its physically....

    but the iphone 3G isn't the 3rd Gen. 3G is a term to liek describe like super fats mobile internet kind of thing.. i think...

    Well the iPhone 3G is understandable in a way.

    How are they going to abbreviate the 3rd Gen iPhone?

    iPhone 3Gii?
    Haha one of those probably.

    Maybe they'll be even cooler and just call it the
    iPhone Generation
