    I'm online on this page writing this post using my new IPod Touch. It's amazing. It's just like the Iphone but without the phone part and no monthly phone or internet fees. If you are in a wi fi area you have internet, loads and looks just like on the computer screen only smaller of course. I can zoom it to make the text large. So many free things I can add to it and I can download e books. I download the books to my computer and then sync them to the Itouch. So easy. If you think you may want the Itouch download ITunes first. Without ITunes (free) you can't sit it up. I can see so many great ways to use this little gizmo.

    I would recommend any of the Ipods. I have the little Ipod shuffle and it's great for music. I noticed they were less then $30 now! Itunes makes it so easy to put songs on the Ipods. Hey if I can do it anyone can.

    Now here's a reason to buy an iPOD......
    When I bought my new car, it had a port in it where my portable music device could be plugged and played through the car stereo. Not owning such a thing...................well.............. :oops: .........now I do.
    Like you, I LOVE it. When I learned that it would replace a laptop computer when travelling, that nailed the sale. I even booked hotels in advance using my iPOD touch when on holidays last summer. If you play games on it, the battery goes dead quickly. That's okay, carry a wall-plug charger.

    The best thing of all are the playlists and podcasts. It's against the law here to use an iPOD when driving but that applies to the scrolling and flipping. I do a LOT of driving and just set my iPOD to a playlist of music I've sorted, or to a series of podcasts and away I go. Perfect!!

    I really want an iPod touch! It is amazing! But I like to shop which means I don't have money in my wallet for long. So I have a piggy bank that you can only get the money out, if you break with a hammer. I think I am like at $1.50. I can't hold on to money for that long. :oops: :lol: :lol: :lol:

    I love, love, love my iPod Touch!! Don't know what I did without it!!! I have 3000 songs, more than 100 videos, a full season of two tv shows, a bunch of games, and my full genealogy database with more than 6000 names, plus hundreds of photos! And Internet wherever there is wireless, which is just about everywhere nowdays!

    I have a REALLY stupid question.....when you say that you have 3000 songs...etc...all this stuff loaded to your ipod....do you pay for all those songs from itunes...or how do you do that without spending a fortune? And...does it cost $ to download apps? (told you...stupid questions)) :roll: :oops:

    You can put all the Cds you own into Itunes and syncronize your ipod. I have small Ipod and never spent a penny on music. Just used my CDs. A few years back Pepsi had a promotion in which you saved 5 bottle caps for one song. A friend of mine has a redemption center and saved my son all her caps and he got tons of free music that way. Even the custodians at work were leaving pepsi cps on my desk at night. There are many applications that are very useful and free, like measurements conversions, e-mail, etc.

    I have put loads of my cd's on, but I've also bought a whole bunch of songs too. Most albums are $9.99, and individual songs are $0.99. There are tons of free apps, and a lot of them are $5 or less too. So, actually I do have a lot of money invested in music, but it is so worth it. I also have a whole audio book on it, and it's only about half to 2/3 full!! Plus, like I said, I can surf the web where ever there is wifi. At work, the internet is really restricted (tighter than China! :shock: ), but I can still log onto the QMB and keep up with posts if I have a minute in between code browns! :shock:

    I just downloaded it and it's worth the $4. Very very nice!

    Gaigai, How much does something like you have cost?
    I'm behind too, but love to listen to my music when doing schoolwork and thought I might get something with my loan money besides just books or a laptop.

    I think you can also get the Kindle from Amazon and they have several free books as well.
    It really isn't too bad to read on either.

    Oh, you guys!! Quilting apps!! I have an iPOD, not iPhone but am definitely checking out those apps.

    When I was putting Christmas music on my iPOD this year, I discovered that I own 31 Christmas CDs. No guessing what my favourite music is, eh :D

    I bought a 16GB device and it has plenty of room for everything I've put on so far. My DD gave me piles of songs, many CDs are loaded, and some free music. These devices really ROCK!!

    I have the 16 gig iPod touch, and I think the price dropped by half two weeks after I got mine :hunf: Now they are about $250. Make sure you get the second generation one, and you can get a case with a battery that lasts up to 72 hours. I'll have to check out the quilting apps, thanks!

    LOL, Sandpat!

    I'm behind the times, too. I'd never even heard of the iPod Touch! I just took a look, and it looks great! Not something I can buy just now, but it's on my wish list.

    I love my touch ipod as well. I download audio books from itunes and from audible.com (a subsidiary of Amazon.com)... I have an external charger cord and speaker cord and can lug it into my auxilary sound system in my car and charge it at the same time. I listen to audio books while I'm driving back and for to my office every day. I put 100 miles minimum on my car just to and from work every week... and I love listening to books instead of music I don't like or the same news story repeated 8 times.

    The 3rd generation is the newest version out now. The 8 gig is about $200. And that is a huge amount of storages. I think only the Ipod touch or phone will accept apps, but check with the store about that. If your Ipod doesn't have a screen it will only have audio apps to use.

    OK...I love love love my new ipod touch, but have a question. When you download books from Amazon to the Kindle for Ipods..how do you choose differnt books? When I open the Kindle app on the touch, it opens to the spot I stopped reading in a book. I can't find where to choose what book I want to read.. DUH..I'm sure its simple...
