The iPod touch is like no other iPod you can download games and all kinds of other apps. When I went out and bought my iPod my friends were telling me that it would mess up and all kinds of bad stuff but when I came to school the next day they saw that it could do everything. I even found an app that let me text for free. The iPod comes with a calendar, stopwatch, and a lot more stuff. You can get on the internet with it. If you don't remember stuff good don't worry there is a notepad that comes on the iPod. If you want you can jailbreak your iPod and when you do that you can set pictures as your background get free apps and a lot of cool things like that. To download music to it all you have to do is pull up iTunes connect your iPod to your computer. Thats it as soon as you plug your iPod up a screen pops up asking you if you want to make iTunes the iPods main downloader and you click yes. The next time you plug it in it starts to download all your songs without you even pulling up iTunes.
