So, people here mostly use Windows computers....so iPod/iPhone owners, how's iTunes cooperate with your Windows computers? I'm very close to pulling the trigger on a 32GB Touch 4G, but I don't want Steve Jobs hijacking my computer through iTunes.

From what I have gathered, I would want to disable the Bonjour thing, anything else I should know? I'd probably use foobar to put tunes on it, because the foobar iPod manager can convert Replaygain tags to be Soundcheck compatible on the Touch.....but there's still other things I know I would need iTunes for.

I wonder if itouch has same sound (not tested touch 4g)
I don't own a Touch or an iPhone but family member has both and I've get to listen to both regularly. I can't hear a difference in between those in volume matched testing. I'm not fond of any of the EQ presets but the base SQ is good to me.

Do you plan on jailbreaking?

I haven't even thought about that yet.....if I do, it won't be for a while, until after I've learned what the thing can do as is.

The iphone is more than twice the cost of similar capacity touch & iphone screen seems better to me than touch's screen that's why asked the question about sound quality.

I personally have no issues whatsoever with iTunes as a iPod manager. I installed the full package, because I was too lazy to not. There is also a 64-bit version. On my system (Core2Duo, 4GB RAM, Win7 64-bit), it launches in about 5 or so seconds. The setup for my iPod was flawless...name it, choose which account to sync with (create one if you haven't), select sync settings, and viola! Its done. I have no complaints about stability or speed of iTunes. The player works perfectly for syncing an iPod, however it still SUCKS as a music player.

So, to sum it up, works perfectly fine for syncing only, and is still terrible as a media player.

the latest itunes is a hell of a lot better than the 8 and 9 series by a long shot imo. it runs a lot faster and doesn't seem to suck ram like an alcoholic locked in a brewery. that said i still only use itunes for updating firmware or backing up contact and apps, and use MM for everything else which is pretty much nothing since i never use it for media lol.

imo jailbreak also, it's fantastic. come on irc if youre gonna jailbreak ill run you thru the must haves.

I've been quite curious about jailbreaking myself....but don't know much about it. Is it safe (a.k.a. will I be able to restore if any issues occur)? What exactly does it do and what are the advantages and disadvantages? Why would I want to do it? Thanks for the help .

Don't know if I will be able to jailbreak my iPod, told my parents about it and they don't like the idea, might not let me ...

@Marvin, I agree with adub. The later versions of iTunes are much, much more RAM efficient then previous versions. As Mcdougal said also, it's a great manager of the files (IE syncing and such) but for music playing abilities - its shit.

Also, RE the jailbreaking issue; I enjoyed my iPhone before it was jailbroken, then once it was jailbroken I was amazed. BUT, after iOS4 came out, I just updated the firmware on my idevice, and the jailbreak disappeared (obvs). But I haven't bothered to redo jailbreaking, because although it was cool, it was to much maintenance for me!!

Jailbreaking is safe & it allows you to future customize your device to your liking with themes & hacks amongst other things, if your interested I suggest visiting iPod touch fans .com
Running 4.2.1 jailbroken and loving it.

if my device had came with 4.1 i'd be on that just for the untethered jailbreak. Tethered isn't that bad though.

iPhone 4 here - FTW!!! I use it for occasional tunes (the clip+ w/RB can't be beat tho!!!), my games, and my net - it's good for me.

I think all you traitors need to have your ABi posting privileges severely curtailed...say...a 20percent reduction of post counts.



JUST KIDDING!
