    A few things stop the iPod Touch from being fantastic, and these points below are the bug bears for me. If these were implemented, I'd feel proud owning the most expensive iPod in existence. Sadly, features that exist on lower models aren't there on the Touch.

    Search for songs - come on Apple, my 2G Nano had this? With the Touch's keyboard, it would be so easy.

    A good equalizer - So you turn on Bass Booster and you like the sound, until it actually emits any Bass and you get distortion!? Low quality parts to blame? What about a customizable equalizer as well? For this reason, I've invested in a Sony Walkman.

    Crossfade Playback - Not many players have this function, so I was surprised that it was included with the 4G Nano - why not the Touch? Could this be added in a firmware upgrade?

    A simple radio - isn't it time an iPod had one of these, especially the high end model?

    I do hope you agree, feel free to contribute any other ideas. I just created this thread because I feel the Touch really should and could offer more than it does, and it needs that VIP feel to it, as they are so damn expensive!

    I absolutely agree, however there are many free radio apps in the app store, you can check some of those out.
    Also, I think the ipod touch is missing Music Quiz, from the nanos :[

    Unfortunately, there are all for online radio and rely on having a WiFi Connection nearby

    We shouldn't have to jailbreak to get that though, and as stated in my signature, I don't do jailbreaking.
