    I know, I know, its silly to compare these two, but I was chatting with a friend of mine, who keeps bragging about his DS Lite! He talks about how he's hacked it, how hes able to access IRC, if thats true for homebrew DS Lite, I say the NES Emulator, he says, DS Lite can have NES and SNES, I say internet, he says he has internet too.

    Can you guys help me come up with how the iPod Touch beats out his DS Lite filled with homebrew?

    DS is good for browsing, but the GUI of homebrew on the DS sucks..

    Ipod touch is better in so many ways, but the DS, and PSP have it beat for gaming.

    You can't really compare the devices, and I love em both (proud owner of both in fact), but if you absolutely want to say iPod Touch is better, here's a few of mine:

    DS browser is capped at 1mbits, iPod is full wifi speed that you can use.
    DS cannot watch youtube (though, counter is iPod cannot use VOIP)
    DS screen is smaller than iPod
    DS doesn't support H.264 videos (dpg files are pretty decent too though, moonlight did a good job with the new player)
    DS's CPU is only 66mhz, where as I recall reading some where iPod Touch is 400mhz

    I own both personally. Each has it's own unique strengths and weaknesses.

    Yeah, I know, but if some guy asks to see your touch, and then asks you about it, then starts raving on about how his DS Lite crushes the Touch and has all of its functionality through homebrew, it really gets on your nerves.
