    When you click a song, download, and play it. Where does it go after that? I know it doesnt save onto your iPod which is gay, but, does it remain on your harddrive, and take up space?

    When you stream music off the internet, it downloads into a folder what is called a "cache". It stays on your Touch but only temporarily. I don't know how tlong the touch is set up to keep the files, but i'm sure as soon as you reboot they are removed.

    If you want to save songs off the internet you need the "Safari Download Plugin" which allows you to save music into a folder other than cache which where removing them can only be done manually.

    EDIT: Yes if you use the download plugin to save the songs to the download directory (that the plugin creates) you can then use SendFile to play the downloaded songs from the directory /var/root/downloads
