The iPod Touch vs. The iPhone
I am in agreement that the iPhone is a much cooler gadget than the iPod Touch but that being said it locks you into crappy AT&T service and thus is not acceptable. Verizon all the way baby, better coverage, better service. Once the iPhone comes out for Verizon I will be first in line to buy that shit, till then I will be more than satisfied with the iPod Touch.
The new versions of the iPod touch, the 32 and 64 gig versions, have faster processers than their predecessors and come with Apple's standard earbuds with a remote + mic. The remote lets you pause/play music/video and the mic works for more than just voice searching. Oh yes, much more! like Skype! I have downloaded skype and used it make calls and it has worked perfectly. But before you think this will replace your cellphone,please remember that you only can use skype where there is a wireless signal and short of you buying the Verizon Mifi, this means you're up shit creek without a paddle in most location away from your home, office, starbucks, mcdonalds, and/or borders bookstores.
That does not mean the iPod touch is worthless. It will still allow you to follow searched directions and really is the best way to watch video while flying. The interface when it coems to typing is the BEST out there. I'm not an Apple die-hard but they do make some good shit and their multi-touch typing system is one of them. I actually use my iPod touch too look at things like Facebook, and update podcasts on the go. Movies are likewise awesome; YES the screen is small compared to a laptop but it is a HELL of a lot bigger than the iPod nano or Classic. But it does play dvd's very well
Last but not least it really is the most cost-effective way to praise your FDO via the Scott Sigler App of Evil. That alone should be enough to flood apple's coffers with lots and lots of junkie-bucks.
All Hail the FDO!
