I can't speak to the speed or dropping, but our wi-fi uses 802.1x and requires users to authenticate and it works. We didn't think it would work but someone figured it out and now we pass out flyers to the students with the instructions.

It's is an awesome unit.
I just hate the capacity on the current ones.

Nice Emily!...get a good case for it.

Uhm, I have a 30 gig U2 ipod video, and most of the space on it I use for backups, not music. I only have about 1000 songs on it anyway.


900 or so are most likely U2.


So I'd say, you don't need another ipod if you already have one.

Don't worry baby, it's gonna be all right. Uncertainty can be a guiding light...

Yep, this is true on our University's network as well. You can use the built-in VPN client to sign in automatically too.

Also, Dave, I haven't had any of the internet connection issues you mentioned (speed and strength) with my 2nd gen iPod Touch

My iTouch works fine with the wireless although it is slower than the laptop's wireless, but not so much so that I would avoid using it.

I think it's neat but I don't think I'd get one again mostly because I think it's too big and bulky. I'm going back to the Nanos when this one's useful life comes to an end.

I wonder if the price of the Touch will go down? My music collection outgrew my 5th gen, and I just had to choose between the Touch and Classic. I really wanted the Touch for the technology but I went with the 120gb Classic to accomodate my 33gb of music. The $400 price tag on the Touch helped to persuade me as well.

I have one of the third generation 'fat' iPod Nanos and I have to say I love the thing, still.

When my current Nano that I use for jogging breaks, I am definitely going to forgo the completely unnecessary 4th generation Nano and try to find a refurb or unsold 3rd gen.

I have no problems with the wifi on my itouch. I use it for everything and I love it. I considered the iphone but I have to wait to get out of my verizon plan. It is annoying that the internet only works in a free wifi area, but in my area there are plenty of hot spots.

iPod Touch?

I was just wondering would it be a good idea for me to get a iPod touch? My friends all have one and I'm the only one without. They are pretty fun to use the applications on. But is it really worth it to get one?

this thread might be a good reference: Is an iPod Touch really all that?

i have one, and i love it. i do wish i'd waited for one with bigger capacity, although that may have been a bit too expensive....cripplingly so.

No.

I'm looking to unload mine now, actually since I got an iPhone.
