    Hello guys

    I've just bought an iTouch this friday and I'm wondering, where on the iPod can you know if it's like 1/2/3 gen, 1/2/3g, etc.

    Thanks!

    1st gen - it doesn't have a silver outlining. No speakers.

    2nd gen - speakers, volume buttons on the side. Silver outlining

    3rd gen - same as 2nd gen, but like the guy above me said, with Voice Control.

    To decipher between the 2G/3G, tell us where and when you bought it, and what GB in size it is, and whether it has voice control.

    Uh, I bought it this Friday, but, well let explain.
    The sister of my friend bought a Mac and in the promotion, an iTouch came with it. She bought it 1 week ago, and I bought the iTouch this Friday 200$ (I save 30$ and it's new, she didn't even oppened it)

    So, it's 2 gen for sure there are speakers, but for 3d gen, in the bases apps there is "Dictaphone", but how do I know if I got a mic?

    Thanks!

    (Btw, when people say "2g" it's the equivalent of 2 gen no?)

    Edit: it's 8 GB

    The second generation model is significantly slimmer and faster than the first. There are no physical differences in the third generation, except for the fact that there's a 64GB version, and that it uses Voice Control, etc.

    But, if I got a Second gen and there is no Mic, why is there a "Dictaphone" app? (on my head there isn't the little "bar" as on the picture Reaper sent)
