"Forced to buy this for my wife"1.0 starson by jakemochasj
Pros: Its shiny! And apple stockholders must be happy that apple has managed to dime and nickel everyone who gets sucked in! My wife likes it.
Cons: Its just an expensive toy. All of the hype from the media "oh it will change computing" I don't really see happening (typing this on my netbook right now). It doesn't replace any peripherals, it adds one.
Summary: I love the iPod touch (I have the 1st and 3rd gen) and they are essentially nice little pocket computers. My wife loved playing with mine so much that I decided to order her an iPad. After doing some playing around I realize how big of a waste of money this thing is. The news subscriptions, apps, and books are more expensive than on other devices (or on paper). I don't know if this things for you, go for it. Its not for me!
