    I'm thinking of picking up an iPod Touch since my old iPod has shat itself (it's an old like 2nd gen one) and I was wondering what yall thought of the iPod Touch? I'm pretty partial to Apple products for the most part but I do have a Palm TX that I got for free the other day. I would assume the iPod is the better MP3 player and well just all around better but I'm not really on the up and up with these things. I'll be using it to play music, surf with the Wi-Fi at home and school (the Palm was a pain in the ass to connect to the Wi-Fi here at home), and probably movies from time to time. So any help would be appreciated.

    The Zune is a good option also. Wireless Sync, and the ability to upgrade the firmware to future versions are HUGE advantages over the iPods.

    Downside is there are'nt 11ty billion accesories out there.

    wireless sync? meh
    and iPods can have firmware updates too. its just that there usually isnt a need for one.

    i would hardly call those advantages

    You can wirelessly sync the iPhone and iPod Touch using wiSync. iPod Touch > Zune

    I just remembered that I read somewhere that the iPod Touch doesn't come with the calender feature and a few other simple things the iPhone has...is there any truth to that?

    I haven't read a thing about jailbreak. What are the pros/cons to jailbreaking a Touch vs. iPhone?

    If money isn't an object, how about if you own a touch and an iPhone and only jailbreak one? Worth it?
