    My Friend got a new ipod touch 8gb like every ipod touch apple removes 1gb out but when apple took the 1gb out he had 7.01GB and I started off with 6.88GB!! Is this normal?? He has a 2g ipod touch and i have a 2g ipod touch 8gb too. He jailbroke it and he is currently on 3.1.3 and I am on 4.0.

    it is cause it is not really 8GB, my 32gb only shows up as a 29 gb. It is due to a MB being made of 1024 bytes and not 1000 you always ge less than the advertised capacity. The os is around 300-400 mb i can really remember off the top of my head. Don't worry about all storage devices are that way.

    OK so if he upgraded to 4.0 he will have somewhere near 6.88GB?
