get the 32gb if you get one.

8gb and 16gb seem way too small.


oh, and my parents never bought be a $475 birthday gift.

They're decent if you're going to use it for more than just music and videos, but if that's all you're going to do then you really don't need the Apple logo on your MP3 player.

I have the 32GB one!
1. I LOVE it! never go a day without using it.
2. other than the obvious music, video, and pictures. My most used feature is definetaly the calender. I would not be able to live without it, it keeps track of EVERYTHING I have planned year-round. As well, the wireless internet capabilities really come in handy.
3. If I could change one thing about it it would be ummm... adding a camera to it, either that or making a phone, but thats why theres the Iphone:P
4. I've had it for about 5 months now.
5. I have 32GB.
6. I have mail, youtube, calendar, contacts, clock, calculator, weather, safari, settings, notes, maps and stocks. All the bais cones that are pre-loaded on.
7. The apps that require wifi are mail, youtube, weather, safari, maps and stocks. I also added a UG app that quicklinks me to UG:P
8. Yes, I personally feel like 32GB is enough, I'm currently only using 15GB or so. My friend has the 160GB iPod classic which I feel is a complete waste since it has more GB than his computer....

I hope this helps you in your decision.

$500 for 32GB of memory is a complete waste of money. If you're smart, You can get 20GB on eBay for $20.

Jailbreak is basically unlocking the damned thing so you can put stuff on there like emulators, non-apple-certified apps, things like that. Kind of like the 1.5 BREW PSP versions and the DS emulators you can get.

I have a 16GB iTouch and i just bought a 16GB iPhone 3G Black. I love them both, they're amazing. The main appealing aspect of the iTouch, (which i obviously bought first) was how fast you can scroll through your music and how organized it is. This made the iTouch ideal for listening to music in my car, which is where it stays.! I loved the iTouch so much that when the new iPhone 3G came out, i purchased it and it was mind blowing. The capabilities of this device is very broad and the applications are spectacular! its is everything in one package, and with you all the time Phone/Internet/Email/Text/Music/Radio/GPS/Camera/Photos/Movies/AIM/MySpace/Weather/ Calender.... and the applications are endless, and the games are way cool and control great! Plus the 3G network is fast as hell. Also iv had not issue with not getting 3G service in my area. Anyways, Apple iTouch/ iPhone 3G FTW!!! I suggest a iPhone if you can talk your parents into it. Because its have more capabilities than the regular iTouch.

You're hacking the iTouch firmware so you can put applications that aren't made by Apple on it. Meaning just about everything from NES games to entire novels.

I dont like mine, the large screen drains the battery quite quickly...(I recharge mine every 12 hours)
TapTap is a great game though...

I say go for something other than an Apple iPod...I just dont trust these units too much, mines already giving me trouble...

alrite im the one here who really has to sum this up. you guys are all nubs when it comes to memory and stuff. when you get an itouch you have to take care of it especially memory wise. i have a few vids lyk 500 songs and a sh1t load of apps on here
1)i f'n love my itouch, its my favorite thing in the world
2)touchpad,rotating screen, jailbreak, IM, music theory, customize
3)battery life
4)since christmas
5) i have 8 and still have a lot to go
6)(this is gonna be a long one cuz i have 40 apps on myn)

youtube, chat, music, mail, contacts, streetflow, maps, weather, calender, stocks, notes, calculator, clock, videos, photos battery, ixboxlive, safari, installer, settings, touchpad, nintendo, itunes, supernintendom gameboy, gameboyadvance, playstation, segagenesis, mxtube, icopter, labrynth, blockpuzzle,flashlight, wallpaper, karajan (musictheory), pianst, guitarchords, guitartuner, summerboardprefs, customize

those were all in order.

6) i need wifi for...

youtube, chat, mail, streetflow (shows what restarants are good), maps, weather, stocks, ixboxlive, installer, safari, touchpad, itunes, mxtube, and wallpaper

7)hell yea i have enuf gigs, all i do is put on the all the music i LISTEN too. wich is only like 500 out of my 5248. and i have superbad and jackass on it as vids. the applications are extreemly small in storage size. my nintendo has 1000 games on it cuz you can download it in bundles and it only took up lyk 90 megabites. an average aplication is never really no more than 1mb.

seriusly dont go for a 32. just spend sum time flippin thru ur albumss and takin out what you dont wana listen too anymore and put it on later. just have playlists set up if you wana have differnt songs for the moment. ull probs save soooo much more memory. just spend a good hour. it could save you 200 bux from what culd be a stupid mistake later on.

the "jailbreak" is a little opening in the itouch that lets the 3rd party (individuals/micro companies) and other masses foreighn to apple to create applications for the itouch that can be installed thru the itouch.

find a few good sources for the installer to read from. all you do is click sources--->edit--->add and type in a url (site). just look up itouch sources from google and find some that are kinda cool. i found a source that was a compilation of 100 sources that gave me around now 10000 apps i can download.

i still yet need ta figure out the app store. i wana try it out. my opininon so far on it is that its rediculously overpriced till after a month of the app bein out. i have identical apps on my itouch that cost 10 bux a pop on the app store.

touchpad is the best app ever. you control everything on your computer even if your in a starbux 20 miles away. thats the only app i payed 10 extra bux for the media center on it to control my windows media player and watch videos thru the internet on my comp instead of my itouch (dont klick on porn vids cuz it will always say "error, could not download file" on your itouch's safari)

my ipod really only completely crashed once and i gave it a cupple days and then it was fyn again. same happend with my brothers. just go on youtube and look at vids to help you uncrash it. 90 percent of them work perfectly.

just youtube a jailbreaking vid. they make more sence by far.

Why not?
Apple is kicking ass with the iPod, iPhone, iTouch sh!t.
Nothing else can compare,
It's that simple.
People just want something to beat iPod,
But the truth is,
If you want an Mp3 player,
Go iPod, That's all there is to it.

DON'T GET ANYTHING APPLE

This is what I have learned after owning several iPods. If you want something cool get the new Sony Ericsson phone, the C902. I got one recently with an 8GB card (I'm sure that isn't enough for most of you lol you can get bigger cards) and it has a brilliant media player, a brilliant camera and it looks sexy.
wat.

My friend has the 32gb and there is plenty of space there.
It's a flash drive or something so it can hold ****ing loads.
He has 10 films, a couple of seasons of scrubs and about gb's music and has plenty of room left.
They seem pretty cool.

... Cool.
I"m done with iPod's....
They're very fragile.
Adding more and more stuff to them every month pretty much outdates your iPod.

I"m gonna give Zune a try.

Not really, I said from my personal experiences didn't I. Everything I have ever owned with an apple logo on it has broken, not due to my fault.

Well I have one, that's what I'm using to be on this site since I'm out of town. I highly recommend it. Alot of people say its an iPhone without the ability to call, which it basically is but I don't care its really a great thing to have. I have the 32gig model and have plenty of space. Soon ok going to get a DVD converter so I can put DVDs on it, but I love how you can go online with it obviously. I love the interface. I like the ability to access iTunes from it. To sum up its without a doubt the best iPod out so far. On long trips it is invaluable. And even just for leaving the house its nice. I suggest going and seeing the features. I honestly have nothing against the unit. iTunes sometimes posses me off since i have to buy the program to convert video files to it, but otherwise the actual iPod is really awesome.

Get the Classic, you get more bang for your buck and the touchscreen is just a novelty and it's annoying.
