    so i decided to look at parental controls and one of the options to disable was the iPod.app. so i clicked it, turned parental controls on, and the music/video app was still there, still accessible. why didnt apple change this?

    yes, its mobilemusicplayer.app

    in the parental controls for iPhone u can disable the iPod app. on the iPod 2.0 firmware, it says disable the iPod app. however for the iPod touch, we have a music app, and a video app. therefore parental controls doenst dis allow music and video
