    I have a couple of noob questions regarding the iPod touch...

    1-Why has Apple limited us to 9 pages of applications? While it might take awhile to fill up...if someone did need a 10th page...If I understand it right...you have to delete some apps and keep it at 9 pages. Is this true? Any way around it? Just curious?

    Because Apple assumes and knows that you won't ever use each and every single Application that you buy.

    I agree but I also think apple is dumb. Why have 9 pages when you can have more.
    Apple just assumes. They have all the theories but they don't have the application in my opinion.

    Because Apple are very clever, and they know no-one can have that many Apps.

    I think they are inconsiderate.

    Honestly, if somebody is say a game-fanatic. Look at the free ones. Free games alone could take up 9 pages. I just think that if your memory supports it...why limit the number of app pages? Strange in my opinion.

    Exactly. I hope they add more pages than that in the next firmware update.

    Well with a JB iPod can you make an icon that's like a folder and opens it up? Therefore you can create 9 pages of folders with 9 pages of apps each?

    Agreed, if apple was so smart they would have done that

    If Apple followed whatever you think... I don't think they'll last very long.
