    When I was looking at Chronic Dev's news about the Jailbreak for the 3rd gen. When they had a link into the news about to a site called "theiphonewiki.com" and I was reading a few pages here when I cam across This Saying that the chip in it is a FM reviver and transmitter. Now I read awhile back about the 2nd gen Ipod touches? I think it was them when they cam out they had bluetooth ability but didn't come until a later version of firmwire come out. (And you had to buy it, go figure) But do you think something like this will happen with the 3rd gen and having a radio? or is the site wrong about the chip?

    From what I have read, you are absolutely correct. The new wireless chip has 'n'-channel capabilities, as well as an FM transmitter and reciever. The software/ firmware to activate the hardware is not yet in place.

    If you called support, those people are not exactly smart.. they say whatever they think is right and try to sound smart. The 8GB does not have the same processor as the 32 and 64.

    I wonder if Apple plans to come out with software in the near future. I also wonder once they come out with a jailbreak for the Itouch 3rd gen if anyone is gonna make software for it to use the radio before apple
