I don't think I could have recieved a better Christmas gift than the Ipod Touch Second Generation 16GB. This product is amazing. It is the first Ipod to have a built in speaker, so now you can play music outloud, with no headphones instead of scooting close to your buddy so you can both listen to the song at the same time. The Ipod Touch 2G has so many great features. You can use WIFI internet on it, which is VERY good. You can keep notes on it. You can set reminders on it that set off an alarm that reminds you of what you needed to do, so you never forget. You can watch YouTube videos on it. It tells you the weather. It helps you located stores and resteraunts using the "Maps" feature. You can sync it with your mail so you can read your email from the Ipod touch. My favorite feature is probably the Apps that you can put on it. So many great apps are absolutely free, like games and tools that help you in your daily life. There are all kinds of Apps for all kinds of people. This particular 16GB Ipod can hold up to 20, 000 songs or 20hrs of video, or a combination of both! The back of the Ipod is very easy to scratch though, so a case or a sheath for it is a must. I recommend BELKIN. The screen is actually very hard to get a scratch on. I use a screen protector, but there are videos that show how hard it is to scratch it. It is very easy to navigate, and you can purchase things from Itunes right from your Ipod touch. They aren't really that expensive, so I say fro EVERYONE this product is a must. Young and old, big and small. I have had an amazing time with this Ipod, and I take it with me everywhere. If you buy this, you won't be disspointed.
