    iPod touch
    hey i just recieved my new apple ipod touch in the mail 5 mins ago. so i took it out of the box and thought that the battery would be dead so i plugged the ipod to my comp using the usb cable. i had a message pop up on my screen saying that i couldn't continue with the message cause i have to music on the ipod wich makes sence. so now i try turning on the ipod and all i see is a pic on the ipod of the usb cable and a music cd. so i thought maybe cause its still plugged in, so i unplugged it to see if i can get the ipod to start up and i still have the same image. and my battery says that its 3/4 full so.... then i tried holding the power button cause i thought maybe it was in a standby mode or something and now its saying to slide to power off so i tried that then rebooted it again and i have the same image again. how do i get into the ipod????? the manual isn't helping me lol

    aw ic, weird how it doesn't say that anywhere in the manual, i'll download it now so what about people that don't have a computer, they can't use the ipod??? still don't get it lol. thought u would only need the comp to download music and things, still thought u can get into the menus
    and 1 more question. whats the hole at the bottom of the ipod near the usb port?
    thanks for the quick response
