    Hey, I'm new to the site, looking around it's excellent!

    I just had a couple questions because i'm new to the whole iPod touch experience.
    Okay, I bought an iPod touch 16gb from ebay, it said it was all up to factory satisfaction.

    But my friend has a touch 16gb too, he bought from the store, new.

    * His ipod will allow websites to be put onto his homescreen by hitting the ( + ) button, mine will not..

    * His ipod came with the 5 new widgets, mine did not, is there any way of getting them without paying?

    * How are our ipods the same but so different?

    * When my friend presses his homescreen thing long enough he is able to move around his little widget things, to another page, etc. mine can't, how come?

    * How do I get the "Installer" application?

    * Will jailbreak harm my iPod and should I do it or not?

    If you could please, help me with any or all of these, I would certainly appreciate it.

    you have an older version of the touch that doesn't come with the January Software Update
    Its $20 from iTunes.
    Installer is obtained by jailbreaking.
    Jailbreaking is generally safe.

    Ohh, I see what you're saying now, I think.
    So he can add things to his homescreen and move his widgets around and stuff because he has the upgrade, if i bought it mine would do that too?

    Is there a way to download the apps like say from limewire, thanks for your help dude, sorry it's taking me a bit to understand.

    To get the apps for free you need to jailbreak it
