    Well the site is telling I should post here, so I am.

    Was never an iPod fan in any fashion. In fact I felt they were overrated... Then I saw the light... Or rather the iPod Touch promotional video... Blew me away.

    Long story short, I received a 16g iPod Touch for Christmas. It's NOT jailbroken right now. I'm still waiting for a compelling reason to do it. I'm trying to find a good list of apps available to see if anything is tempting. (Though if anyone ever creates a SID player for the HVSC that'd be extremely compelling.) So far nothing has leapt out at me as a "must have", but I'm waiting (and hoping) one will.

    So anyway, hello

    Woah... you're still waiting for a compelling reason??????

    -The emulators
    psx, gba, nes, openttd
    -The Awesomeness
    iPhysics,
    -The Pretending you Have an iPhoneness
    Stocks, Weather, Notes, Maps, Mail, Camera, Phone, SMS, Summerboard
    -The VoIP
    Calling people with microphone
    -There's no risk
    You can't kill it (brick it)

    Now some of that is tempting, especially the PSX emulator (assuming it runs well). If it was a SNES (rather than NES emulator) that'd be tempting too.

    Don't really care about any of the iPhone type apps, but you're highlighting one problem I have. Finding out what's available. (I'd never heard of the physics thing.) I try Googling stuff, but all I find is installer.app and all that. No actually LIST of stuff that's available. For example is stuff like Python and Perl available? Can I chuck PDF's on there and read them without having to leave the wifi on?

    Really I'm waiting for my own personal killer app on there to make me giggle like a schoolgirl and jailbreak. (Like the aforementioned SID player.)
