    heres a list of things that apple needs to do the ipod touch to make it better, all of these suggestions can be done with a simple upgrades to the firmware.

    1) Fix the smart playlists
    2) Allow the keypad to rotate (when i go to type in a new address its faster to type in landscape mode, but if the keypad is activated in the portrait mode you have to exit out, turn the ipod, then you can type)
    3) Add a "battery time left estimate" with a "battery level percentage"
    4) Allow the deletion of pictures on the ipod touch
    5) Add movie downloads from the wireless itunes store
    6) Allow the use of a actual wallpaper (one that is shown behind the apps)
    7) Allow wireless syncing witht the computer over a home network
    8) Add a landscape mode for the mainscreen
    9) Add a homepage setting
    10) Allow downloading pictures to ipod from the internet
    11) Add games for the ipod touch to the itunes store
    12) Add features to edit music information on the go (ex. you realize you have a misnamed song, so you just edit it)
    13) Add a notepad app
    14) Allow the callender to be updated on the go
    15) Add more options for the calculator (new skins, and a scientific option)
    16) Add downloadable overall themes for the ipod touch
    17) Allow app icons to be changed
    18) Allow apps to be rearanged and hidden
    19) Allow videos from youtube to be downloaded to the ipod touch

    pretty good list... except you can delete movies on the ipod

    all you need to do is swipe your finger sideways across the movie title and you will get a little delete button to pop up.

    i think that the wireless syncing could cuase problems for some. For example never plugging it in and not realsing that its not charging type issue with the lesser of our species

    I LOVE all the suggestions they all make sense! except...

    # 6 is the only one that won't be possible i don't think...downloading movies takes long enough on a desktop with cable or T1...it would be super slow over wifi and even slower if you don't have wireless n....i just don't think adding movies or T.v. shows is a good idea or very feasable...

    6) Add movie downloads from the wireless itunes store
    imposible... it would take hours and the battery would last...

    20) Allow videos from youtube to be downloaded to the ipod touch
    apple want you to pay for music so the wouldn't like you to download the last video of feist over youtube...

    But on the rest i agree with you... With that i would love the ipod Touch

    downloadable movies

    lets say you are really board at the airport when you flight is delayed for 2 hours for no apparent reason (happened to me atleast twice)

    you can download a movie while you wait.
    1) you can download small 10 minute sections of the movie, as long as it takes less than 10 minutes to download each section you can be watching an entire movie within 10 minutes of the inital download.
    2) if you dont download all of the movie or your ipoT dies, you can download the full quality movie when you get home.

    atleast this is the way i picture it working.
