    you have the appstore where you can install new applications on your ipod from apple. and then if you jailbreak your ipod, you have cydia and installer which also allow you to install new applications. the problem is that apple is pretty strict on what type of applications they allow in the appstore. if you jailbreak your ipod you can access other cool applications or you can apply themes on your ipod (changing the icons and wallpapers)

    But if you get an ipod 2g for christmas, sorry to tell you this but you can't jailbreak the 2g ipod touch yet.

    Jailbreakin' basically allows any program written fer the iPod to be run on it. After a Jailbreak, the iPod is basically a mini computer (which is limited to its hardware; the iPod can handle up to SNES and Genesis emulators which are both currently available). Check out BigBoss's giudes at the link below. Personally I wouldn't buy my iPod unless I could theme and skin it like I could my other electronics, I can completely make all the skins I want on my jailbroken iPod =]
