    In previous firmwares (previous to 2.1) if one used the App Store on the iPod device, the backups would be very slow. To fix the long backup problem, using only the App Store in iTunes to download apps would fix it. Since the new iTunes and new firmware, is this still the case where we should only use the App Store in iTunes, or is the App Store on the iPod working great now so backups won't slow down?
    Thanks.

    it doesn't really matter. Backups are a million times faster than they were before. I don't think it makes much of a difference on which app store u use (if you have itunes 8, fw 2.1)

    Yes, they have fixed it. It no longer stops for a long time when backing up and restoring. Though if that is just because the backup feature is fixed or if the Appstore apps is fixed too I don't know. Doesn't really matter much though.
