You mean from the app store? You need to either get iTunes on your computer and download them onto it. Then you can move them onto the Touch. I think with a touch, you should also be able to connect to the app store via a wireless network.

Clearly you have no idea what you're talking about. I'm not sure what firmware version you have but you need at least 2.0 to begin installing applications (free or paid for applications). Updating the firmware to 2.0 is not free, unfortunately. I believe it was $9 to update to 2.0 but every update afterward is free.
1. Make sure you have a computer with itunes installed and an existing account.
2. Connect your iPod touch to the computer and itunes should automatically begin syncing and check for software updates (important).
3. If you have a wireless connection, connect to it by going to the ipod's "settings" button (looks like a gear) and selecting your network. Once connected, you can begin downloading apps from the App Store.
You could also download the apps directly from iTunes and then drag them over to the iPod Touch.

I did my reseach and apple is the biggest bunch of douchebags I have the 2g ipod touch which means I cant open it up to use 3rd party apps apple locked every one out and the apps that you have to pay for are grossly over priced and not worth 10-16.99 each for a web broswer game. now I have to hope target will let me take back an open ipod touch.

What format does the digital copies come in have you tryed converting it.Every digital copy I have specifically says it won't work on Zune or PSP. I don't want to mess with conversion as it takes too damn long and defeats the purpose. Maybe, one day, I will just sell the zune and buy one of those damned iPods since they own the world anyway.:shake:

Want to buy an 8gb Nano. I bought it for my daughter in November for her birthday. Her mother got her an 8gb iPhone 3G for Christmas. Basically making the nano redundant.

PM me your price. Oh, and color. heh

Got the touch, school me on all the awesome I can achieve, kthanx.

First off, WiFi. How? Additional service? Provided by Bandwidth Provider?
That's the most pressing one, tried WiFi once in a spot that detected it, asked me for a password, gave up for the time being.
EDIT TO ADD: Most of my WiFi access will be on university campus.

I got my work cut out for me. I have a shit ton of TTC lectures in avi format I want to watch on the Metrolink this coming semester [Dark Matter, String Theory, the basics]. Kind of made me nervous to have all 4 cores running 100% for that length of time. Any info on how long you can keep that up without overheating the CPU?
