Ipod Touch 3rd Gen.


I know the Ipod Touch is noth­ing new and most of you prob­a­bly already have one, but I just got one of these as a gift and want­ed post a lit­tle some­thing about it.
I got the 8Gb mod­el which is a tad slow­er than the 32/64Gb ver­sions but not by much and its still smooth and pleas­ant to use. what I real­ly like about the 3rd gen­er­a­tion of the touch is that it has wifi so I con­nect to my home net­work or any wifi con­nec­tion to get maps, apps, etc. The apps are freakin sweet for this, I got one called Pock­et God and while its sim­ple its high­ly enter­tain­ing and pret­ty damned hilar­i­ous, Anoth­er app I want to bring up is the e‑reader, I know it seems like read­ing ebooks on such a small screen would be next to impos­si­ble and hard to do but it in fact is not, I got the barnes and noble app which allows me to buy ebooks and read then through the app, I down­loaded a sam­ple and it was actu­al­ly quite easy to read, you can change the font, text size and col­or to match your tastes and com­fort. The abil­i­ty to con­vert my dvds to MP4 and play them on this is also a huge plus, 8Gb real­ly isnt much for movies plus music and apps but with the right con­vert­er ( I use Bad­aboom) you can get videos down to a decent size and real­ly get quite a bit on it, for instance I ripped and con­vert­ed Avatar from rough­ly 8Gb down to 1.4Gb @ DVD qual­i­ty, or I just got done con­vert­ing the first disc of Fam­i­ly Guy sea­son 6 and got each episode with good qual­i­ty to a size of about 200Mb each. The lay out is also quite nice, its easy to use even for first time users and has a smooth feel to it all the way around. Any­way bot­tom line is its got awsome apps, music of course and a great video play­er which make it out to be a very use­full and enter­tain­ing all in one mobile media cen­ter.

    I think if I was going to spend the mon­ey I would get a IPAD… I dun­no. For the price it’s hard to jus­ti­fy. Both are pret­ty crazy expen­sive.

    the 8gb is $200 so its not so bad now where it gets steep is the fact that each mod­el goes up anoth­er $100 vs the ipad start­ing at $500. It depends on what you use it for to, the ipad just isnt prac­ti­cal for me, Ill use the ipod when i work out and trav­el and so on and it does just about every­thing the ipad will do just on a small­er screen

    i was torn between the zune HD and the ipod touch and even­tu­al­ly decid­ed on the ipod touch just because of the apps avail­able and the slight­ly larg­er screen, and got­ta say the apps are freakin awsome 😀
