iPod Touch Review, Pure Godlyness.

Even Jesus himself is pleased with this humanly creation. This is no normal Gadget. I’ve read countless amount of reviews, watched many videos, read blogs about it, but you’ll never know how good it is until you actually get one for yourself.You can expect some gasps from people to whom you’re demonstrating the interface for the first time. It’s simply nothing like any traditional user interface, and it’s immediately appealing.

I received my iPod Touch on Tuesday (3rd Jan 2007), after weeks and weeks of waiting, and i must say my life has drastically changed since receiving this godly device. I basically spent 2 days getting aquinted with it. Spent the first night jailbreaking it, which i must say was rather easy. Now i know EXACTLY why this dude jumped on a subway track to save his iphone from a harsh death. I bet your thinking that this device can’t be that good, well don’t, it is.

Average gadget users will be satisfied with the average iPod Touch features (Music, Videos, Youtube, And Web), but i’m not an average iPod user, i would never and could never be satisfied with those features alone, no i had to hack(Jailbreak) my iPod and extend it’s capabilities. Right now i have a plethora of applications loaded up on my precious; apps like but not limited to Apollo( it’s an IM application, Godly), PDF Viewer, Google Maps, Mail, Dictionary, Bible, Encyclopedia and alot more, it would basically take a whole paragraph to list them all. But it doesn’t stop there, there are tons more apps you can download for your iPod.. ipod’s will never be the same again.

So your worried about the iPod’s screen being scratched? Well Don’t, this video will prove it to you. And just to be sure i tried the scratch test myself, i tried it with a compass. I dubbed the iPod Touch’s screen the “Alien Screen”. The only problem is the chrome back, it scratches like a bitch, but not a problem, i don’t care, a cheap case is on it’s way to solve that problem.

I’d go in depth and talk about each and every feature, but i don’t want to bore you. You’ll never get bored on the iPod Touch, if your tired of listening to music then move on over and the whole youtube collection of videos, with a very slick interface, if that doesn’t tickle your fancy then you can browse the web (Which changed mobile web forever), if that doesn’t work for you either because your a picky bitch then jailbreak your iPod and download some sweet applications for it

P.S: It is possible to brick your iPod Touch/ iPhone by jailbreaking it, but it’s pretty hard bricking it on the iPod Touch, can’t vouch for the iPhone though, jailbreaking the iPod touch on 1.1.1 firmware is a sinch, but doing it on 1.1.2 is pretty tricky( Which i jailbroke and currently on). On that note Apple should be releasing an SDK for the iphone/ipod touch at Macworld. I hope the apps developers are going to create with the SDK provided by Apple sucks so i can keep my iPod Jailbroken and continue being a badass on the streets for hacking my iPod, i mean come on, if the SDK applications are badass then everyone will have the same thing, then my iPod won’t feel special, but if the SDK’s suck then i’ll keep my jailbroken apps and the noobs who can’t jailbreak there iPod’s will be stuck with the crappy apps *evil laugh*

P.S.S: I forgot to mention that a wi-fi connection has to be available for you to use web on the iPod, but that’s pretty “No Shit” though. Also before anyone asks, i have the 16gb version.

    Man, it seems as if you are a technological junkee experiencing a significantly high level of commodity fetishism with respect to this IPod Touch.Interesting comment Aurie!!

    I bought one of these last week brand new paid 259 online for it.. shipping clearing might be a bitch though.. damn customs.. its not for me though. should be here today or wednesday latest. itws a great device it makes you wanna buy an iphone. but at the end of the day htc’s still kick ass.

    Yeah, i’ve heard about the HTC, specifically the HTC Touch, but trust me, it will never beat the iPhone, you’ll see what I’m talking about once you have the iPod Touch:)

    I envy you so much right now. Sadly, no one loves me enough to get me one. If it were any other phone, say a Razr or a Chocolate. I would’ve called that guy a fool. But for an iPhone, I understand.

    damn it…my goal is to get one in a month (using my adsense money to buy it 😀

    I think that in Jamaica the ipod touch is more practical than the iphone…even when it is legally unlocked i dont think anyone shud get one. Stick with the 16GB ipod touch and a cheap phone in your pocket..trust me u wont be missing a thing

    PS id jump unto the tracks to save my ipod touch too

    Here is a link that provides information on how to convert videos for the ipod touch…for free


  • http://www.advance-gamers.com Gordon Swaby

    That’s a bullshit convertor lol, i’m an iPod Veteran from ipod shuffle to 2 iPod Video’s and now the touch, the best converter in my opinion is the Win Avi Mp4 Convertor, pure beauty, try it. And in the case of cheap phone and touch. I have a SGH-D510 samsung (not bad) and my iPod Touch, works fine for me, based on my experience with the iPod touch i do think the iphone woukd ahve it’s advantages for me
