    In the new iPod nano, the headphones act as attenas. So does it work the same for the iPod touch? Is there any app that can use the earphones as attenas for radio?

    Nope. The touch would need an fm transmitter built in. Now while the 3G touches (32GB, 64Gb) do have a sercret fm transmitter built in, it has to be activated. Just like the bluetooth had to be activated in the 2g iPods. Only time will tell.

    The iPt4 needs radio.

    I still can't believe they still have not added this yet.
