There are some really nice cases, but I'm far too lazy to go hunt for them right now.

There are no password management apps, so far as I know (I'm pretty sure that violates Apple's terms).  If the WiFi access point requires a web portal login, there is nothing you can do.

So far as sound quality: what are the files encoded at?  As a rule of thumb, do not encode lower than 192CBR.  I recommend 224VBR 48kHz, or (overkill) 320CBR.  Anything less sounds remarkably ######ty.

If you're really that obsessed, you could build your own pocket (Altoid tin) amp.

I usually rip my CDs with MediaPlayer at highest mp3 setting for the mashup kind of mp3s, Garth Brooks, Babyface, Celine Dion (don't judge) are at WAV lossless???....plus I'm not that hardcore audiophile....wannabe maybe... :shifty:

When I just had my IP I was also thinking about getting a case or screen protector, as I was scared that it might get damaged. Eventually I never purchased any kind of protection and I'm actually fine with it. After continuously using it since the day I got it there still *knock's on wood* hasn't been a single scratch on it as far as I'm aware. The nice shiny metal back won't brake but can get scratched, however in a few weeks from now you likely won't be bothered with that anymore. So unless you'll find a case that completely covers and properly protects the glass front (look back some pages in this thread), it kind of seems like a waste of money to be honest.

About the sound quality. I find the bass to be on the low side. The EQ on Bass Boost can slightly increase the performence but on some bass rich songs you might get some irritating distortions. I looked into this and found out that this can be fixed by using a program on your PC that sort of tells all your songs to play at the same hight level (there is a better way of explaining it) and so removes the bass distortion. I can't remember the name, I'll try to find it tomorrow.

ok, after playing around the EQ, (wish they would include the option while ur playing instead  of going back out to main menu <_< ), I found a happy setting:

classical

so now I'm using the BeyerDynamic DT770 PRO, and went ahead with shuffling my music...

so bouncing around my mashups, county, classical, R&B, audiobooks, the weakness of bass, as mentioned by TJ is compensated by the DT770.

it's manageable...I do need to adjust the volume a tad bit when I play A Winter Symphony by Sarah Brightman.

I have to double check my rip on this.  :yes:

Oh Grendel!!!!

I got some Google Document that I emailed to myself as PDF.
So I get it has it's own reader...but I don't know how to save it permanently within my iPod Touch, so I don't have to open Gmail or Google Doc to read my pdf's.

thanks man....if I have to buy the apps, I guess I have to pay.

advance thanks

The only way to do it out of the box, is through the email client, or through safari.  

In the app store (if you search for 'pdf reader'), there are a number of options.  One of the only free and decently rated ones is 'FileApp'.  It allows you to upload files to your device, via FTP.  They previously had a USB-upload option, but Apple asked them to remove it (lame).  The plus side is that this application basically acts as a 'Finder' (opens nearly all file types).

Other than that, you take a gamble on paid apps.

My free WIFI at work is annoying since I have to log-on every time I get on Safari.  Is there a free app the manages log-ons/passwords.  It's getting annoying with my big thumb.

I believe the last firmware introduced an auto fill option for usernames and passwords, check out Settings/Safari/Auto Fill.

I'm not sure if the following will work but a trick you could also try is to make an url of the portal site that includes your username and password in the beginning of it (something like http://username:pass...talsitename.com ) and copy it. Open your settings and turn off WIFI. Than open Safari, go into the adress bar and paste the previous copied url and hit go. Ignore any no connection warnings, press the + icon and select "add to home screen". And turn WIFI back on again.

If it does what I hope it does, pressing on the new created bookmark icon on your Springboard (home screen, or desktop in PC terms) instead of the Safari icon, hopefully results in an automatic log-on now.

can I share my iTunes collections with my iPod Touch and her soon-to-have iPod Nano (5th Gen)?
I see there is this Home Sharing option, never heard anyone discuss this before.

You can authorize five devices for your iTunes account syncing.  The same with PSN and almost every other service.

finally got my E5 with ghetto tape for now until LOD arrives.....so far, it's better when watching movies, I can finally hear the cowbells behind Andrea Bocelli's voice  :whistle: , Kenny G sounded much "warmer,"....yet to try my mashup collections...I set the iPod Touch volume to 60% while setting the E5 at roughly around %60 also.
this is with E5 OEM audio cables....so far, happy with it. :thumbsup:

My biggest pet peeve with my iPod Touch is that, ok, I find a website that has a bunch of free mashup mp3s thru iPod Touch Safari, I can stream them, I see that the website has a download links to them.

Unfortunately,  I have to wait get home, load to iTunes, then to the iPod Touch. :mad:

Now that Jailbreaking is legal, is it now possible to drag and drop my d/l mp3s?

(I'll d/l to my flash drive first then hopefully to the iPod Touch)

advance thanks for your help :up:

My son has Ipod Touch.. & one of my pet peeves is that our Home Cienma system that has a regular iPod dock doesnt recognise the touch version, so he cant play his audio from it.
Does anyone know how or what needs to be done in such cases?!

See if there is a firmware update for the HC device that might solve the problem. Or buy a type of audio out cable for the iPod.

@Cpl there is a freely available Safari download plug-in from application stores like Cydia and Rock (requires JB). It stores files in a specific folder so I guess you either need to get another plug-in like Finder ($ I think) to move the files to a different location. Or get a new media player program that can play files from the root system and just point it at the download folder.

RISE NECRO THREAD!!!

Q: I got instances my Ipod Touch's connection would drop and there are these signals that stays up, my neighbor's.  Normally there is an option to forget unwanted WiFi, but for some reason, there is none.

Anyone know a way to completely remove their network or boost mine, without having to go to a 2.4Ghz Router to a 5Ghz/ Dualband?
Currently I have aLinksys  WRT54GS
