    So my girlfriend gave me an itouch and I would like to use it to replace my phone by using google voice and gizmo5 etc. The problem is that I dont know the first thing about macs and distrust steve so I dont want itunes on my win7 system.

    My first question: Is it possible to update the itouch w/o installing itunes.

    Also where should a very new itouch user begin learning the tricks.
    Seems like saurik is clutch.

    Thank you for any help.
