The second-generation iPod Touch includes features that are light-years ahead of the competition, its design has improved, and its price has finally come down to earth.

So, is the 2G iPod touch the funnest iPod ever? ... yes, Apple’s tortured use of our mother tongue is apt.

There is no doubting the feature set and the range of possibilities on offer here, but without the mobile phone connection it is less useful whilst on the move. Coupled with the size it is beaten both on price and practicality as an MP3 player.

Overall I love the 2nd gen Touch. It has replaced my Palm as my everyday PDA. I keep pretty much everything on it. I am still not sold on the idea of having an all-in-one device, so it compliments my phone which is a Blackberry Curve 8330. I use my Google account to sync Contacts and...

I don't know about you, but I don't talk on the phone much. I spend most of my time texting or talking to my friends offline. Combine that with the budget of a minimum-wage worker going through college, and you've got a real problem when it comes time to purchasing a new...

I've developed a worrisome dependency on the iPod Touch since purchasing it. I bought it because I couldn't afford the monthly payments on an iPhone, but wanted to see what it was all about. Since then I've never looked back and I feel very strongly that the iPod/iPhone hand held...

The iPod Touch was a lifesaver during my travels. I used it to log into my email and bank and to book more flights and hostels all over the place. I was able to bring some movies and TV shows with me along with all of my music. This made for a great device to keep any boredom at bay. It also...

I have been using my iPod touch for a number of hours daily for the past year and must say it is my favorite device. From controlling my computer in a multitude of ways to playing games to ,of course, listening to my music collection, the iPod touch can do nearly anything. It's only...

I love my iPod Touch. Fantastic device if you want 95% of the functionality of the iphone minus the phone and the 3g connectivity. I've bought lots of games on it and use it to read emails send emails and go on the web while sitting on the couch. Oh and listening to music. Lots of music....

The iPod Touch has seemly started revolutionizing the portable audio market. With the addition of Wifi, you're able to search the web and buy music straight off your player. You basically have all the power of the desktop version of iTunes. You can watch and download (rent or buy) full...

I now use my Touch for 95% of my personal everyday internet/computer activity. There is just no need or reason to sit down at a computer for web browsing, mail, watching videos, weather, news, you name it. I do all those things from the couch, bed, wherever I happen to be. My computer is now...

It's been about three and a half years since I received this as a corporate gift, and only now do I find myself looking at newer, sexier, devices. It's not that this is a bad device by any means, just that four years in, its limitations are starting to show, most of all the fact that it can no...

Oddly, the one feature that doesn't live up to its potential is the Music application. The new iphone OS 3.0 added better search capabilities and shake-to-shuffle. Yet on-the-go playlists are stuck in the past. With a full keyboard, it would seem only natural to be able to create new...

I find that I use my iPod Touch as a music/video player only incidentally. With the wireless option and the app store my iPod Touch is more of a PDA/game machine. I carry it around the house and now use my laptop for other things ( editing photos and video, etc. ). At work, we now have a wireless...
