I have had my iPad for about a month and read a fair number of reviews before I purchased, spent some time using one at the store, and thought about what I might use one for, in contrast to my laptop with which I am well satisfied. People too often think of computers in terms of hardware, the specs and looks, instead of the software and the functionality. You should ask yourself, "What will I use this for that solves a problem I would like to have solved?" Software is always more important than hardware, even though it is the hardware that makes an impression.

The iPad is not a laptop and is not principally a production computer, that is, a computer on which you are going to develop web pages, do serious graphics editing, or write a book. You could use your new Taurus to tow a trailer, but that is not what it is designed to do well. These things can increasingly be done on an iPad, but I don't believe they will ever be what it is best at. It is a portable media machine with an inviting touch interface that requires a somewhat different set of skills, which take a modest amount of time to learn. Surfing the web, checking email, watching movies, playing games, looking at new cars, reading the Economist magazine, all work better on an iPad than a laptop. It does these things very well indeed. There are now 80,000 apps for a wide variety of activities--given its design intent. The apps are either free or reasonably priced, so you can get a bunch from the "app store" for little investment. As with Amazon, you can see what other people think of an app before getting one.

This would be a splendid acquisition for small children, for teens deep into social networking, for an adult wanting to drop into the love seat for a quick look at what is happening in the world, for a senior citizen who wants a simple, inviting system with few hassles, to stay in touch with grandchildren. The iPad is not a light laptop; it is instead a different way to use computing to do a wide variety of consumption and communication--not principally production.

In my experience, its wi-fi is adroit from one environment to another. It "knows" where it is geographically, scans its environment for wi-fi, and accesses wi-fi seamlessly. At this point in time, we should expect no less. I cannot address the 3G communications since I have a wi-fi only (I am not convinced of the value of the 3G and I can use my phone as a hotspot). I have never had it crash, though I have had to back myself out of apps that seemed to have no logical next step. This was the result either of my ignorance or the fact that there is less of a standard user interface from app to app than there is in classical GUIs such as OS X and Windows.

For the laptop lugging road-warrior, it should be noted, this is not going to be a full replacement. I now take my laptop and my iPad when I go into the college. But much of the time there, I use my iPad because it is so light, convenient and useable. I use it to teach my classes and often reference traditional texts from the iPad instead of lugging them along to class. I develop my own web pages on my 27" desktop which is the right environment for such development; I wouldn't expect to do that on an iPad. In education (and evidently in medicine), it is proving to be a real boon. The enterprise situations where portable information access and transmission are critical will find this a compelling solution. The heavy Photoshop user or music track editor will still need a conventional computer, either laptop or desktop.

I purchased the 64GB version, which may be more storage than I need. But since it will drive my 50" screen downstairs I figured I would begin to load lots of pictures and favored music, so it may prove a wise choice in the long run. It can swallow up entire evenings with the music-augmented slide shows it can do. In fact, you may begin to wonder if you need cable TV. Conventional content providers should be worried about the iPad since it provides yet another way for the user to determine viewing experience. But if you are still drawn to cable, it makes a fine remote control.

Before people evaluate this new kind of computing, they need to spend a month or so with it to identify what it does well and what would be better left to other kinds of computing solutions. I fear some of the evaluations here (both glowing and critical) are not well informed and so do not serve the readers well. So read these reviews with a critical eye.

I continue to find my iPad remarkably productive and productive in ways I would not have anticipated. It does indeed redefine how we can use computing so that it does the work we want to do with minimal impediments. I now leave my laptop at school and take my iPad back and forth since 80 or 90% of the time the iPad does all I need to do. I use it 3 or 4 hours a day.

Brother HL4570CDW Color Laser Printer with Wireless Networking and Duplex



Brother HL4570CDW Color Laser Printer with Wireless Networking and Duplex

The Brother HL4570CDW Color Laser Printer with Wireless Networking and Duplex features Up to 30ppm color and black printing, Automatic duplex printing, Wireless, Ethernet and Hi-Speed USB 2.0 interfaces, Up to 2400 x 600 dpi resolution and USB direct interface. It produces brilliant, high-quality output at an impressive print speed of up to 30 pages per minute in color and black.

The Brother HL4570cdw is a fantastic printer for everyday and office use. This is my first Brother purchase. I'm using it to print out full colored brochures (graphics, photos, and text). So far it's been more than adequate when using the appropriate paper i.e. glossy paper. When on regular paper, the colors are not as sharp and pictures are not as clear. For photos, the resolution quality is acceptable/good, but there is a noticeable difference in quality from a print shop and a heavy duty office printer (you know the 5 foot jumbo printers).

As for print speeds, from start to finish it prints at an above average pace. The spooling process is quick (less than 2 minutes) for a 80 mb print job. It printed a 60 page, full color (vivid mode), double sided booklet in about 8-10 minutes.

I just ordered my wife an 11" MacBook Air with the larger RAM and storage, which might seem to contradict what I said in my review. I don't believe it does for the following reasons. She needs to do serious editing of Word documents for the volunteer work she does for the college and still wants the joys of a 2-pound piece of elegant hardware. She is an excellent typist and likes the feel of the Air's keyboard. A keyboard can be added to an iPad, but it's a kludgy add-on that compromises the point of the iPad: an ultra-light slim, touch-interface device that does most of what traditional computing does without the impediments of mouse and keyboard and weight. The 11" Air is a gem of engineering with many of the advantages of the iPad but it is more capable of the production I spoke of in my review since it is a full OS X Lion machine--so it is fully capable of running traditional production software such as Word or Photoshop or, for that matter, Windows.

Apple iPod nano 16 GB Graphite (6th Generation)



Apple iPod nano 16 GB Graphite (6th Generation-NEWEST MODEL)

Redesigned for music and Multi-Touch, iPod nano is smaller and lighter than ever. You can clip it to your sleeve, jacket, or running shorts and keep your favorite songs at your fingertipsÑalong with the Genius feature, a built-in FM radio, pedometer, and more. And the anodized aluminum finish in six bright colors makes this new design even more brilliant.

Upgradeable to nano 1.2 Software
This sixth-generation iPod nano is now upgradeable to Apple's new nano 1.2 software. Simply connect to iTunes and upgrade, and you'll be able to access the newer features. These include the ability to navigate with large icons displayed one at a time, a choice of 18 different clock face designs, and the ability to track your steps, distance, pace, and time while exercising, without the need for a separate shoe sensor or receiver.

Music. Feel the beat.

Your greatest hits. And taps. And swipes.
The best things in life have a soundtrack, and that's where iPod nano shines. The Multi-Touch display lets you experience your music in a new way. Tap to play anything you want to hear. Swipe the Home screen to browse your music by songs, albums, artists, playlists, genres, or composers. You can even rearrange the icons on your Home screen so your music is organized just how you like.

Clip on some tunes.
With the new built-in clip, you can walk, run, ride, or dance with your favorite songs on your sleeve (or pocket, jacket, or bag). The album art of the song you're listening to fits perfectly on the display.

Play all day. And all night.
The built-in rechargeable lithium-ion battery gives you up to 24 hours of nonstop music. So when you clip on an 8GB or 16GB iPod nano, you'll have plenty of tunes to make it through your commute, your workout, and beyond.

Shake it up.
Now for something completely random. Give iPod nano a shake and it shuffles to a different song in your music library. Shake to Shuffle is perfect for when you're not in any particular music mood. You never know what you're going to hear, and you'll always be pleasantly surprised.
Genius. The music mixmaster.

Your own personal DJ.
Say you're listening to a song you love and you want to stay in the groove. Just tap Genius. It finds other songs on your iPod nano that go great together and makes a Genius playlist for you. For more song combinations you wouldn't have thought of yourself, create Genius Mixes in iTunes and sync the ones you like to your iPod nano. Then tap the Genius Mixes icon and rediscover songs you haven't heard in a while--or find music you forgot you even had.
FM radio. Touch that dial.

Radio nano.
Ride the airwaves on iPod nano. The FM tuner shows the artist, song, or program you're listening to. Just tap to see the radio controls, flick the radio dial to change stations, and tap to set your favorites.

Live Pause.
If you need to take a break from listening, don't miss a minute of radio time with Live Pause. Tap to pause a song or show, then tap again to continue where you left off. You can rewind as far back as 15 minutes or fast-forward to catch up to the live broadcast.
Fitness. Meet your new personal trainer.

Clip and go. And go. And go.
The new iPod nano design actually helps keep you fit. It's portable and wearable, which makes it runnable, walkable, and workout-able. Clip it on and control your music with just a tap or swipe of a finger, so you can stay focused without fumbling around. For your run, walk, or trip to the gym, a little iPod nano goes a long way.

Stay fit with every step.
iPod nano doubles as a pedometer, which makes it the ideal exercise partner. It keeps track of your steps and helps you meet your fitness goals. Just clip it on and walk on. You can create a daily step goal and check your progress when you upload all your data to the Nike+ website.

Rock your workout.
With the Nike + iPod Sport Kit (sold separately), iPod nano keeps you motivated from warm-up to cooldown on your run or in the gym. Lace up a pair of Nike+ running shoes and clip on your iPod nano. You'll watch the miles unfold and hear real-time voice feedback along with your favorite songs. In the gym, connect iPod nano to a Nike + iPod compatible cardio machine. It records your pace, time, and distance as you work out and rock out.
iTunes. For your iPod-playing pleasure.

Everything you need to be entertained.
iTunes is the best way to fill your iPod nano with the latest music, podcasts, audiobooks, and more. It's also the best way to browse and organize the ever-expanding digital media collection on your Mac or PC. Everything you buy on the iTunes Store--and any music from CDs you import--appears in your iTunes library. You can make your own playlists, create Genius playlists, choose Genius Mixes, and sync it all to your iPod nano. And you can download iTunes free.

The world's #1 music store.
Load your iPod nano with your favorite tunes. Or browse over 13 million songs and discover even more. You can search by artist name, song, or album title and handpick exactly the songs you want. Want some help finding new music? The Genius sidebar recommends new music based on the songs you already love. When you find something that sparks your interest, listen to the free 30-second preview. Click once to buy the song and it starts downloading instantly. It's the fastest, easiest way to build a digital music collection for your iPod nano.
Accessibility

Built-in accessibility.
iPod nano comes with accessibility features that help people with disabilities enjoy music, audiobooks, and more.

VoiceOver
iPod nano features VoiceOver, the world's first gesture-based screen reader. Touch the screen to hear a description of the item under your finger, then double-tap, drag, or flick to control iPod nano. Use the optional Apple Earphones with Remote and Mic to control your music without looking at the screen. VoiceOver tells you the name of the song or artist--and it speaks 29 languages.

White on Black
If you prefer higher contrast, iPod nano lets you change the display to white on black. Use the White on Black feature in any application, as well as on the Home screen.

Mono Audio
If your hearing is limited in one ear, turn on Mono Audio to route audio into both earbuds so you can hear both channels in either ear.

Apple iPod touch 8GB (4th Generation)



Apple iPod touch 8GB (4th Generation- Current Version!)

The world's most popular portable gaming device is even more fun. Now available in black and white, iPod touch includes iOS 5 with over 200 new features, like iMessage, Notification Center, and Twitter integration. Send free, unlimited text messages over Wi-Fi with iMessage. Record HD video and make FaceTime calls. Visit the App Store to choose from over 500,000 apps. iPod touch also features iCloud, which stores your music, photos, apps, and moreÑand wirelessly pushes them to all your devices.

FaceTime. Oh, I see what you're saying.

Video calling on iPod touch means your friends can see what you're up to, when you're up to it. With a tap, you can call someone on an iPhone, iPad 2, iPod touch, or Mac over Wi-Fi. And come face-to-face with even more fun.
Tap for a more instant, instant message.

Take "LOL" to the next level and actually see friends laughing. Or bring "XOXO" to life when you blow someone a kiss from miles away. FaceTime on iPod touch makes it possible. FaceTime works right out of the box--just enter your Apple ID and email address. Or create a new email account just for FaceTime. Using FaceTime is as easy as it gets. Say you want to start a video call with your best friend over Wi-Fi. Just tap the FaceTime app and find her entry to start the call. An invitation pops up on her screen asking if she wants to join you. When she accepts, FaceTime begins. It's all perfectly seamless. And it works in both portrait and landscape. See how much fun you can have.
Two cameras make either side its fun side.

iPod touch has two built-in cameras, one on the front above the display and one on the back. The front camera has been tuned for FaceTime. It has just the right field of view and focal length to focus on your face at arm's length. So it always presents you in the best possible light. Which is especially handy when you're talking to someone who's more than just a friend.
The back camera. See and share.

So your friend is sick with a cold and can't make it to the concert. You can share the encore with a FaceTime call. As the band takes the stage and starts playing one of her all-time favorite songs, just tap a button. And before the lead singer can belt out his first note, iPod touch switches to the back camera and to the sure-to-be-legendary performance. Another tap switches to the front camera and to you. Simple, fast, and fun.
Camera with HD Video Recording. Ready, and action.

The next great Internet meme could be yours. iPod touch and its HD video camera go with you everywhere, so you can capture every "What the?" moment that comes your way.
Trim a little off the ends. Or the middle.

No need to wait until you're back at your computer to edit video. With basic editing built into iPod touch, you can get right down to business. Just drag to select start and end points on a filmstrip. Keep only the parts of the video you want, and turn it into something you and your friends will watch again and again.

Special guest star: iMovie.

You're on an epic road trip, and you want to create a video postcard of everything you've seen and done. Just use the iMovie app--pick it up on the App Store for just $4.99. Built for Multi-Touch, iMovie lets you combine and edit video clips, give them that extra something with dynamic themes, add music and photos, and share your finished movies with the world.
This is so going on YouTube.

Maybe you're in the middle of texting a friend or browsing the web when you look up and suddenly see something that words just can't describe. Launch the camera and record on the fly. Then upload your HD movie directly to YouTube. Or select some video from the Camera Roll and attach it to a new email message, ready to send. Posting to your Facebook page or blog is also just a tap away.
Two cameras. Countless photo ops.

A really cool piece of graffiti art. A cupcake too cute to eat. Your cat camouflaged by stuffed animals. If you want to take a quick photo to post on Twitter, either camera on iPod touch can also capture stills. Use grid lines, pinch-to-zoom gestures, and single-tap exposure lock to compose the perfect shot. Then tap to tweet at will.
Retina Display. Seeing is still not believing.

Thanks to the Retina display, everything you see and do on iPod touch looks amazing. That's because the Retina display's pixel density is so high your eye is unable to distinguish individual pixels. Which means images in games, movies, and photos pop off the screen. Text in books, web pages, and email is crisp at any size. And everything is sharper. No wonder it's called "cutting edge."

More wow per inch.

Behind the screen of iPod touch, there's some serious technology going on. By developing pixels a mere 78 micrometers wide, Apple engineers were able to pack four times the number of pixels into the same size screen found on earlier iPod touch models. This many pixels packed this close together--326 per inch--make graphics and text look smooth and continuous at any size. Prepare to be glued to the screen.
LED backlighting.

The Retina display includes LED backlighting and an ambient light sensor that automatically adjusts the brightness of the screen for the best viewing and battery life possible. So you can focus on more important things. Like destroying aliens.
AirPlay. Broadcast live to your HDTV and speakers.

With AirPlay, you can wirelessly stream what's on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch to your HDTV and speakers via Apple TV. That's gonna go over big.
Give your photos and video the big-screen treatment.

You have great photos on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch and some friends on your couch. Or you're in the middle of an epic action scene that could use a little more screen. Tap the AirPlay icon on your iOS 5 device from a specific app--Photos, Videos, or Safari, for example--and everything streams to your HDTV via your Apple TV.* Make sure both your device and Apple TV are connected to the same Wi-Fi network, and the AirPlay icon appears automatically.
DJ wirelessly.

AirPlay isn't just for photos, movies, and apps. It's for your music, too. A song, an album, a favorite playlist--if it's on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, you can stream it to your home entertainment speakers via Apple TV. Because rocking out is always more fun in surround sound.
Your speakers and AirPlay. Perfectly in tune.

Conduct a symphony, chill with an indie band, or put on a rock concert--anywhere in the house. Connect any speaker you own to an AirPort Express. Or stream directly to AirPlay-enabled speakers from manufacturers like Denon, Marantz, B&W, JBL, and iHome. Your iOS device automatically detects your speakers: Just tap the ones you want to use. Since it all happens wirelessly, you have the freedom to cue the tunes from wherever you happen to be sitting, standing, or dancing.
Music. The DNA of iPod touch.

Your workouts, your cram sessions, your commute, your late-night dance party of one, your ever-present need to drown out the noise around you. It's your music that keeps you going. And you know what respects that? iPod touch.

A work of album art.

What a song does for your ears, Cover Flow on iPod touch does for your eyes and fingers. Turn iPod touch on its side and glide through your music by album art with the flick of your finger. Tap an album cover to flip it over and display a track list. Tap again to start the music.
From one great song comes an even greater playlist.

Songs in your library get a newfound rhythm thanks to Genius. When you're listening to a track you love and want to hear others that go great with it, let Genius take over. It finds complementary songs you own and makes a Genius playlist for you. Listen to the playlist right away, save it for later, or even refresh it and give it another go. Count on Genius to create a playlist you wouldn't have thought of yourself.
A genius of a mix.

Genius acts as your personal DJ. All you do is sync iPod touch to iTunes, and Genius automatically searches your library to find songs that sound great together. Then it creates multiple mixes you'll love because it's entirely your music. Genius Mixes are like stations tuned precisely to your taste. They're a great way to rediscover songs you haven't heard in forever--and some you forgot you had.
Shake it like you mean it.

The next time you're listening to your tunes, turn on Shake to Shuffle, then give iPod touch a shake to shuffle to a different song in your music library. It's just another way iPod touch keeps your music feeling fresh.

If it's entertaining, it's on iTunes.

Add songs and music videos to your iPod touch from iTunes on your computer. Or buy and download new music on your iPod touch over Wi-Fi with the iTunes app. When you do, iCloud automatically downloads it to all your devices over Wi-Fi or 3G. So everything new appears everywhere--on your iPad, iPhone, Mac, or PC. You can also browse your purchase history and choose specific songs or albums to download again at no additional cost. Sign up for iTunes Match and you can access all your other music from iCloud--including music you've imported from CDs or purchased somewhere other than iTunes. For just $24.99 a year.
Games + Apps. What iPod touch was made for.

It's hard to be bored when you have instant access to over 500,000 apps. Available in almost every category, they're just a tap away at the App Store. And when it comes to games and entertainment titles--over 100,000 and counting--no other platform comes close to iPod touch. Which probably explains why it's the world's most popular portable gaming device.
iOS. The world's most advanced mobile operating system.

Running the show on every iPod touch, iPhone, and iPad is iOS. It lets you browse, read, and see everything just by touching the screen. It also includes all the fun, powerful, and innovative built-in apps you use every day, many times a day. And the latest version, iOS 5, is packed with over 200 exciting new features that will make you say, "Best. iPod. Ever." Here are a few of our favorite new features in iOS 5:
# iMessage

Forget much? Reminders can fix that for you. Create lists of things to do or remember, set a deadline, and Reminders sends you an alert.

# Safari
Web articles minus the ads. What bliss. Tap the Reader button in Safari and ads disappear. Add article links to Reading List and read them later.

iCloud. Your content. On all your devices.

Thanks to iCloud, your iPod touch has an even tighter bond with your Mac or PC (and your iPhone or iPad). iCloud stores your music, apps, games, latest photos, and more and makes them accessible on your other devices. And it keeps your email, contacts, and calendars up to date across them, too. It's all automatic. There's no syncing required, no management required, no anything required. iCloud does the work for you.
iTunes in the Cloud. Your music and TV shows. Wherever you want them.

You never know when you'll suddenly be in the mood to listen to a favorite song or rewatch that hilarious sitcom episode. With iCloud, you can have iTunes automatically download new music purchases to all your devices the moment you tap Buy. You can also access past music and TV show purchases from any of your devices--wirelessly and without syncing.
Photo Stream. Snap. And it's everywhere.

With Photo Stream, you can take a photo on one iOS device and it automatically appears on all your other devices, including your Mac or PC. Import new pictures to your computer from a digital camera, and iCloud sends copies over Wi-Fi to your iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. You can even view recent photos on your big-screen TV via Apple TV. There's no syncing, no email attachments, no file transfers. Your pictures are just there--on whichever device you happen to have handy.

Documents in the Cloud. Start here. Finish there.

You can create amazing documents and presentations on your iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. And now with iCloud, you can keep your work up to date across all your iOS devices. You don't have to save your work or transfer any files. Your documents--with all your latest edits--automatically appear everywhere. iCloud is already built into Apple iOS apps like Keynote, Pages, and Numbers. It can also work with other iCloud-enabled apps. So you can do things like create a spreadsheet on your iPad and make edits to it on your iPhone. Or start sketching on your iPod touch and add the finishing touches on your iPad at home.
Apps. All your apps. Always at hand.

If you have an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, you have apps. And you probably download new ones all the time. iCloud lets you automatically download new app purchases to all your devices at once. So the app you need is always right where you need it. If an app you bought previously isn't on one of your devices, not to worry. You can download it again from your purchase history--at no additional charge.
iBooks. All your devices are on the same page.

Buy a new book from the iBookstore, and iCloud makes sure it appears everywhere--your iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. So if you have to put it down, you can pick it back up on another device, in exactly the same place. In addition to the best seller you're glued to at the moment, the iBooks app keeps a list of titles you've read before. And just like with apps, you can download them again to any of your devices.
Calendar, Mail, and Contacts. Up-to-date everything.

iCloud stores all the stuff you can't live without--your contacts, calendars, and email--and keeps it up to date across all your devices. Say you delete an email, add a calendar event, or change some settings. iCloud makes all your changes everywhere. Same with your notes, reminders, and Safari bookmarks.
Backup. iCloud saves the day.

iCloud backs up your iOS device daily over Wi-Fi when it's connected to a power source. From your Camera Roll and messages to your device settings and ringtones, everything is backed up quickly and efficiently. And since iCloud is built into iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch, you can restore your personal data on a new iOS device or one you already have without using a single cable. iCloud does it all for you over Wi-Fi.
Find My Friends. Friend-spotting.

For finding your way to the party, keeping track of family at a crowded amusement park, or getting picked up at the airport, Find My Friends is your app. You can give friends and family permission to see your whereabouts. And vice versa. When you don't want to be found, a single switch takes you off the grid. Simple as that.
Find My iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, and Mac. Lost. And found.

If checking all the usual spots hasn't turned up your missing iOS device, Find My iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, and Mac can help.4 Just sign in at icloud.com or use the Find My iPhone app on another device to locate yours on a map, display a message on its screen, remotely set a passcode lock, or initiate a remote wipe to delete your data.
AirPrint. Wireless printing, right from your iPod touch.

Late for a concert? Quickly print your tickets from your iPod touch. Stumble upon a list of cheat codes for the RPG you've been struggling with? Print it and share it with your friends. A few taps is all it takes to go from onscreen to on paper.
Hard copies made easy.

AirPrint on iPod touch makes it simple to print your email, photos, web pages, and documents. There's no software to download, no drivers to install, and no cables to connect. With just a few taps on your iPod touch, you can go from viewing something onscreen to holding a printed copy. And because all the printing takes place in the background, there's no waiting around. Instead, you can start printing and then go back to flicking through photos, browsing the web, or doing whatever you were doing before.
True wireless printing.

"No cables required" means exactly that. AirPrint printing is 100 percent wireless. iPod touch automatically locates and connects to AirPrint-enabled printers on your wireless network. Whether you're on the other side of the house or on another floor from your printer--or you're walking from one room to the next--you can still print what you need, when you need it. In fact, it's all so easy and fast that by the time you finish reading this sentence, you could have printed it from your iPod touch.
What you see is what you print.

If you can open it on your iPod touch, chances are you can print it with AirPrint. AirPrint works with Safari, Mail, Photos, PDFs in iBooks, and third-party apps with built-in printing. Print that hilarious photo of your friend dressed up as an '80s rock star. Running late for a movie? AirPrint lets you quickly print your tickets as you're heading out the door, so you won't have to miss the previews.

Works with AirPrint-enabled printers.

Many AirPrint-enabled printers are available. Just visit the Apple Online Store and find one that's right for you.
Built-in apps. Fun from the get-go.

iPod touch gives you serious game. But there are so many other things you can do with it that are just as entertaining. Make a FaceTime call to your best friend. Shoot HD video of your favorite band. Take and post plenty of planking photos. Check out your go-to celebrity gossip blogs. All this and you can check email, watch a movie, listen to music, and more. Impressed? That's just how iPod touch rolls.
Messages with iMessage

Your two-thumb typing skills are about to be put to some serious use. Say h-e-l-l-o to iMessage, the new text messaging service for all iOS 5 users. It's free over Wi-Fi, so you can say as much as you want, and then say more. iMessage also lets you send a picture, share a video, or text a location. This is definitely going to have people talking.
FaceTime

FaceTime on iPod touch lets you hang out, catch up, and goof off with friends when you can't be there in person. With just a tap, your iPod touch can make a FaceTime call to someone else's iPod touch, iPad 2, iPhone, or Mac over Wi-Fi.1 Witness a prank in action. Or watch your friend on the other side of the country crack up at your stories from last night. All you need to get started is an Apple ID and an email account. You can choose an email account you already have or, if you prefer, set up a new one. You'll never see fun the same way again.
Game Center

Game Center on iPod touch lets you add more players to your gaming network. Invite friends to join. Then totally dominate them. See how your score ranks against your friends and other players of each game. Compare achievements. Put together a select group of friends to play with or have Game Center suggest some new friends based on the games you play. You can even choose to go up against people you don't know in a multiplayer game. So get in the game. And get your friends in it, too.
Camera with HD Video Recording

"You should have seen it!" is a thing of the past. Because with iPod touch, you'll always have a great HD video camera with you.

There are apps for anything and everything--from giving videos you shoot a vintage feel to letting you take on the role of a cunning secret agent. You can download them fast. Many of them are free. And all of them make your iPod touch that much more can't-live-without-able.
Music + iTunes

With iPod touch, you don't just play your music. You hear it, and see it, in entirely different ways. Let Genius create a mix or a playlist for you automatically with music you already own and love. Flick through albums in Cover Flow. Or give iPod touch a shake to shuffle your songs. Craving some new music? iTunes is only a tap away. Browse millions of songs you can buy and download right on the spot. And thanks to iCloud, your purchases automatically download over Wi-Fi to your iPhone, iPad, Mac, or PC, too.
Videos

Your favorite movies and TV shows are now playing on a subway train or plane near you. Because you can buy or rent movies and purchase your favorite TV shows right on iPod touch. Shop the iTunes Store and choose from thousands of must-see titles.
Mail

Whether you have one email address or five, iPod touch lets you manage it all. View and open attachments. Format text. Drag to rearrange names in address fields. Add or delete mailbox folders. Search the body of messages. And with iCloud, you get a free email account that stays up to date on your iOS 5 devices and Mac or PC.
Safari

Safari on iPod touch now includes Reader, a handy feature that removes annoying ads so you can read articles without distractions. Want to read a story but don't have time? Add it to Reading List and read it later. iCloud keeps your Reading List updated across all your devices, in case you want to check out the story on your Mac or iPad instead.
Photos

So many hilarious, unforgettable, I-can't-believe-you-just-did-that moments are in the photo library on your iPod touch. And new features in iOS 5 give you more control over the photos you take. Crop, rotate, enhance, and remove red-eye right on iPod touch. Even organize your photos in albums. With Photo Stream in iCloud, all the photos you shoot on iPod touch automatically appear on your other devices.
Maps

Maps on iPod touch shows you where you are and how to get to where you want to be. Or maybe you're craving something sweet. Type what you're looking for--"ice cream," for example--and see what's nearby.
Reminders

A new feature called Reminders makes iPod touch seem like a sticky note come to life. Create a list for whatever you don't want to forget--homework assignments to finish, chores to do, concert tickets to buy. Set a deadline and Reminders will send you a notification to keep you on track.
YouTube

From tweens with incredible vocal skills to bizarre-but-real TV commercials, YouTube is a video wonderland. And with the YouTube app on iPod touch, you can keep yourself entertained for hours on end.
Nike + iPod

Get the most out of your workouts with the Nike + iPod Sensor (sold separately) and iPod touch. The sensor slips into your Nike+ shoe and wirelessly transmits data about your workout to your iPod touch. The Nike+ app even works with cardio equipment in many fitness centers.
Voice Memos

If you have something to say, say it. Voice Memos on iPod touch will record it. Whether it's a lecture on covalent bonds or your friend's goofy made-up song, you can keep it for posterity. Trim your memos on iPod touch, then sync them to iTunes to use in your podcast or share.
Find My iPod touch

You know your iPod touch is here somewhere because you had it like 10 minutes ago. Don't freak out. Find My iPod touch was made for situations like this. When you first get your iPod touch, set up Find My iPod touch. Then if you misplace it, you can find its approximate location on a map. Display a message or play a sound to help you find it. You can even remotely wipe it clean of your personal information, if you need to.
More Built-in Apps

Keep all your news and magazine apps in Newsstand. Write about anything and everything in Notes. Do quick math with Calculator. Check the weather. And watch your investments with Stocks.
