    I am kinda new to the iPod world. I was given an iPod Touch 32GIG, and I see all these posts for 2G 3G and 4G (Generation) iPods and I am wondering how you tell which Generation iPod I have.
    I have to be honest and say that I am not an Apple fan by any means, but I have come to LOVE LOVE LOVE my iPod Touch.

    I also have a question about the iPod charge rate. I have a USB charger (that came with my Kodak camera) that charges at 5V - 1A. If I use this will it harm my iPod?

    Yeah, my boss got it in the mail not knowing why, so he just gave it to me. Engraved on the back is a note saying it's to him, from Hankook Tires. Yeah me, for not having to spend any money on it.

    Any ideas about the charging?
