I'd like to pull text from my computer into my touch, my emails, make lists outside of the tiny screen, be able to highlight text I like, copy it on my ipod and drag it into notes, something like stickies. Also, any epub files reading stuff? I should be able to use my touch to trial run different softwares for netbooks, see if they are easy to download, sync well with free library content, work with Barnes and Noble, Amazon, (in Canada we can't get content w/o restrictions) before I buy a Nook, Ipad or other ebook reader.

Am I the only one who thought this was a game played by risque DBAs/Network Managers, and not an app for the iPod/iPhone?

Bic Concert Lighter!!! It's almost worth buying one on my way home.

I can understand why modern concert goers would be discouraged from bringing flammable material and open flames. In Japan, they use glow sticks. Maybe there's an app for that too.

Stop on the way and buy a freakin' lighter, ya damn slackers. Geez, Jerry Garcia must be spinning enough to power the amps...

The iPod touch is just an iphone without 3G and GPS. So most of the following apps run on the touch. On my iPhone I use: 1) Mocha VNC: app for remote controlling home network, including both Linux and Windows PCs. Works great for remotely viewing security cameras. 2) Mocha RDP: VERY fast remote control app. Cannot do streaming video or Linux. 3) Scany and Ping Lite: to show your security-unaware friends why they need to enable encryption on their wifi. 4) PhotoShop mobile: to adjust the exposure on the photo you just took of the boss stealing supplies from the stock room. 5) Light-Em-Up: this is a dyno program for the car, so you can see how your 0-60 time is doing on the way to a customer site. 6) Google voice: free texting, free phone calls, plus a phone number that is unlisted, all for free. 7) VoicePlus: This is a voice-changer app, so when you use your google voice app (see #6, above) you can prank your friends. 8) Fake-a-Call: This can generate VERY realistic fake incoming phone calls or even text messages. Great for getting out of boring meetings, dates, etc. 9) CraigsPhone: Craigslist viewer for the iPhone. Meetup with the M4Ws or get that freshly-stolen laptop you've had your heart set on. 10) eBay App: Get that laptop, possibly not stolen, that you've had your heart set on.
