    I believe a great idea that many people have not considered is to make a software that has the ability to make the iPod touch an external hard drive like previous ipods. This would be a great storage device and I do not understand why Apple would disable it in the first place.

    There is an app called Datacase to do precisely this, due for release on 28th July.

    Apple didn't include a disk mode because they didn't want users accidentally (or purposely) deleting and/or modifying the device's software and files.

    You have to understand that the iPod touch has a more advanced OS than that of an iPod Nano, for instance.
