    I don't have one.. but from what I understand you can only use the internet on your ipod touch when your within like 100 feet of your router? What's the point of this, why wouldn't you just use the internet on your computer? I'm probably missing something here

    Because you can use the internet within a certain range of ANY router

    Once you get it you will understand how often you will use it around the house. You would also be surprised how many open wifi access points there are around town.

    I like it,

    some reasons an examples..

    1. Say you're stuck on traffic, maybe ur mom if ur underaged..
    And say u have ur ipod and there's a wi fi open access connection, wouldn't you like to go online in the car? while you wait..

    2. Let's pretend you're at your grandma's house..boring, maybe play some videos from youtube over wifi if there's no computer available..

    REASONS..

    ITS TECHNOLOGY, YOU NEED TO IMPROVISE

    ITS COOL, LOL

    So if I were to go to a hotel that provides free high speed internet I can use the internet on my ipod touch there?

    Yup. Or if you're at any other free Wi-Fi spots like Panera Bread. Or if you're at school or the supermarket or anywhere else. Heck if you don't want to drag a notebook on a short business trip, you can grab the iPod Touch.

    wireless internet. "Wireless Fidelity" is what it's abbreviated from. It allows you to connect to an internet connection when not actually plugged into the wall.

    WiFi rocks my world. It's the fastest wireless connection, that I know of. Wireless-N it's called.
