Podcasting What Geeks Really Want To Hear

Sunday, August 17, 2008

Hello all,

I’m just playing around with my new iPod touch (including the spell correction feature while I type). It’s quite the little unit.

I do have a few bitches, though.

1) I bought a brand new iPod touch, but it didn’t come with the latest firmware. You gave to shell out an extra $10 to get the “apps” feature. I actually called Apple and bitched, but all I got was a support specialist who agreed with me.

2) Once you do upgrade, the apps are awesome (including the free WordPress plugin I’m using right now). However, there are big problems with the apps. They take forever to install and make iPod backups horribly slow (like HOURS long)

3) The apps crash often – usually locking up the iPod. I guess it’s still a bit more beta than I was hoping.

All in all, I’m very happy with it though. The “Remote” app is awesome. Also the “SimpleMedia” app let’s you stream from your computer to the iPod – VERY cool! There are a ton if other cool, fun, and useful FREE apps – and the number is growing everyday.
