    There are some games, an NES emulator and a bunch of other stuff... yes a lot are made for the internet, but at the least, you can add the ability to enter items into the calendar, and the get the notes application. And I think my favorite is the ability to customize your interface.

    Good luck if you decide to jailbreak. You should check out the jailbreak forum, the applications forum and the games forum.

    As a side note, Im pretty sure that as of right now, you need to be connected to Wifi in order to jailbreak your ipod and have an internet connection while doing it. In addition, you download apps through the installer program, so you will need internet access on your ipod for that as well. But once they are downloaded, you are fine.

    i downloaded the .tif file and converted it to a bookmark with that program, made a .html page and had the image linked with the url that the app made. i synced the html and tif file to my ipod touch through the bookmarks on itunes and viewed the html page through the bookmark. was really easy.

    The idea behind jailbreaking is to open the iPot to a read/write status. Once this is done, you can FTP into your iPot through your computer
