The iPod touch features Apple's multi-touch user interface that enables you to find and enjoy all of your music, videos, and more on its gorgeous widescreen display with just the touch of a finger. First introduced on iPhone, the multi-touch interface uses pioneering new software to present the perfect user interface for each application.
The iPod touch also includes Wi-Fi wireless networking, the first on any iPod, and Safari, the most advanced browser on any mobile device. The iPod touch also provides easy access to Google search, Yahoo search, Youtube and many other interesting features. This ultra thin iPod touch can store up to 20,000 photos via iTunes. The iPod touch lets you choose the latest music in the market from the iTunes Wi-Fi Music Store.
The touch-screen keyboard and multiple browser window management make surfing the web anywhere a pleasure. iPod touch users can now use Safari to save bookmarked Web pages as menu screen icons, providing quick access to commonly-used sites. Audio format support is unchanged from previous iPods. The iPod touch supports standard and purchased AAC, as well as MP3, Audible, WAV, AIFF, and Apple Lossless formats. Video format support is likewise unaltered from the H.264/MP4 files playable on 5G iPods, as well as the third-generation iPod nano and the iPod classic. The iPod touch supports video resolutions up to 640 by 480 at 30 frames per second, providing an excellent movie viewing experience.
The iPod touch display has an ambient light sensor that automatically adjusts brightness to suit the ambient light in your surroundings. An accelerometer detects when you rotate the iPod touch from portrait to landscape, then automatically changes the contents of the display so you immediately see the entire width of a web page, your music in Cover Flow, or a photo in its proper aspect ratio.
The iPod touch has many apps to entertain you to the fullest. Some interesting and notable features about this iPod touch are the multi-touch interface, vibrant 3.5" color touch screen, and normal headphone jack—not recessed like on the iPhone.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
