Before I get flamed, read the following carefully so you know where I am coming from and I am sure most of you will agree.. Firstly, this unit is the most beautifully thought-out piece of hardware I've ever owned. The user interface is second-to-none and the bright screen is artwork in itself. The browser is great, and as an Ipod, it is phenominal. Unfortunately, I purchased the Ipod touch with anticipation that, much like the Iphone, the user community would 'hack' it and provide avenues for me to install 3rd party apps and really turn this into a tool worth carrying with me at all times. The recent news of the 1.1.1 patch disabling all of the currnet Iphone hacks brought me to the sad realization that I am wasting my time. It is clear that the cat-and-mouse game of "wait until the jailbreak becomes available and then watch in disappointment as the new firmware release disables it..... repeat a few months later" is not for me. From what I can best sum up, I paid $400 for a nice looking computer that will do nothing more than allow me to watch movies, listen to music, and occasionally surf the internet. That's all Apple promised when I purchased it - so I really have no reason to be upset. Bluntly speaking: I want more. This thing could, hands-down, be the best PDA to ever hit the market. Unfortunately, it is crippled to be an [expensive] entertainment toy and nothing more. Personally speaking, I have better things to do with my money than spend $400 on something that will 'brick' itself if I try to expand it's capabilities beyond what Apple intended. I really love the Ipod Touch and with the exception of it being just short of a true PDA, I recommend it to anyone who has the money and can afford to spend it. I wish I had a justifiable excuse to keep it. If Apple gets serious about making a new PDA that has functionality beyond a toy that needs to be hacked as such, then I will be first in line. Until them, I must sadly return to my IPAQ. Apple, are you listening?
