"Beware of charging needs"3.0 starson by krotkdm
Pros: Wife loves iPod, so gave 64GB model to replace 80GB classic (hard drive went bad).
Features are great with WiFi and potentially replaces laptop she wanted (since she only wanted it to check email surf internet on trips).
Cons: New generation of iPods do NOT charge on ALL 'made for iPod' devices.
Summary: I was very saddened to have purchased this item to find out that it didn't charge from the devices (Logitech speakers and iPod charging station) we had purchased for the iPod classic (80 GB second gen) and Ipod Nano (1st gen).
When trying to charge, she received a notice that the iPod was incompatible with the charging device (even though the music would continue to play through the speaker system).
After conducting research online, Apple decided to remove the 12v charging circuitry (firewire) from the Touch and can now only be charged via a USB connection (or device that charges via the 5v circuitry). The devices that were intially purchased were 'made for iPod' and are now obsolete.
They need to come up with another logo.
No warning was given of the incompatibilities!
