The Apple 8 gigabyte iPod Touch is absolutely amazing. It performs all the functions of a normal iPod--music playback, video playback, planning, calculating, and just generally entertaining--as well as some great new features, particularly internet surfing. The awesome, innovative central feature of the iPod Touch? What else--its touch screen. This new feature provides much extra ease in the use of the product. One no longer has to search for the correct button that could be hidden God knows where on the device; all of the buttons are clearly visible on the screen itself. The negatives? High price. Low space (for me at least). Comes with less than average comfort earbuds. Why such a great review? Mass amounts of entertainment, convenience, and showing off are all just a touch away!
