The iPod Touch

Labels: , , ,

So, this blog is for Daniel, but anyone can read it if you really want to. So, let's start off with digitaltrends.com's positives and negatives about the iPod Touch. The site mentions that it's 'highs' are "Outstanding build quality; untuitive [could be a typo] interface; superb audio and video playback; lots of extras." It's 'lows' are "Expensive; Wi-Fi reception could be better; missing an equalizer." The positives are pretty much, exactly what i'd put down. Me and my friend were using some of the extras. He has the beer application, and the app with the lighter / zippo, it was pretty cool. I also agree with the outstanding build quality and the audio and video playback. Since, the iPod Touch has Wi-Fi, me and a couple of friends were watching some youtube.com videos (link below, hillarious) in HD, it was pretty sweet [and funny]. The Wi-Fi's connection was a bit shaky a week ago and it would disconnect me while i was trying reading my email. But, this past week, it's been staying on the connection all the time. Although, i still do agree on the Wi-Fi reception, becuse it definitely could be better. At times, i would be on Wi-Fi with my Nokia N81 and it would load the page faster than the Touch. I don't know if not having an equalizer would be really important to you, so i don't really know if you can factor that in. And yes, it is fairly expensive, but if you get it as a Chritmas gift, i really don't think that will be a factor anyway. The battery life is pretty good and it can last about 5-6 hours surfing the web using Wi-Fi, which is more than my phone. What really would get me to buy the Touch though, would have to be the apps. You can browse through what seems like 1 million apps. You're guaranteed to find something you like. I was playing with the zippo for a good 15 minutes, it's just that fun. I don't really know what else you can get for Christmas, since you play WoW and that should generally occupy all of your time. You don't need the PS3, like i do. This would be a pretty good present, unless you can just get the iPhone, which can do all of this plus some more stuff. But, if you look around the internet, you can even find ways to turn your iPod Touch into a phone somehow (see link below). Anyways, all-in-all this is really something good to get for Christmas. Be sure to tell me if you get it. You can tell me if you like the iPod Touch too.

hey daniel i hope you read this =) i totally think you should get it cuz isaiah's right - for a christmas gift? the price is not much of a factor. my brother tells me the iphone's really fun because of the applications. it seems like everyone's getting into it because of the applications. so if you need a boredom buster - you got one right there. AND since isaiah found that site to turn it into a phone - that's freaking amazing. did not know you could do that =)

you're lucky he made this blog for you. pretty interesting, no?
