    Default iPod Touch

    I got one and it's amazing. I think you guys should invest in one, as it's not only amazing in what's preinstalled, but it has great homebrew potential. There are already a bunch of 3rd party apps on it plus a NES and GBA emulator, and they are extreamly easy to jailbreak. Simply go to jailbreakme.com through safari on it, and bam, it's done. And it actually runs OS X. I just think that it has a ton of potential, but if you look in the apple forums on here, the section is practically empty. Not advertising btw

    Touchscreen based controls are a severe limitation.

    Some third party manufacturer could make a clip-on control add on, but it would ruin the 'sleek styling' etc.

    I just got mine on Thurday. awesome. simply awesome. I have soo many 3rd party apps installed. and yes the touch screen can sometimes be limiting such as when trying to graph something in my sketches app. but, then again,it is always easy to just make a stylus out of a pencil and some aluminum foil. works like a charm. I absolutely love this thing.

    if your going to get an ipod touch you might as well go for an 8GB iphone.

    Because they have no tactile feedback and take up screen space (especially for something like SNES/PS1 with many buttons).

    Touch-screens are great for SCUMM style point and click games though.
