No really it isn't. I as those of you who have read "it works (just)" description of a yachites idea of how to deal with an ipod. I have to say I LOOOOOOVE my new ipod touch, yeah its youg to be seriously compromised when I gad about on the briney again. But, I have to say "Well done, its bloodly exelent".
Now I'm not paying for an iPhone, infact I've speant about £20 of pay as you go credit in 5 months. Don't want a phone.I've wifi all over and live in Brighton. So who wants a phone?
The ipod touch as so far failed to crash once. Roams wirelessly, is suprisingly practial to use. In all I love it. It twitters, its now a remote touchpad for my media centre telly, twitters, farcebonks reads my email (though I admit it didn't like my mail server, but really i can't blame it, the SSL cert on the server expired in the stone age). One new ssl cert and I'm cooking on Gas.
Sailors take note:
- Wind Guru (free) Yay my favourite dinghy forcast on de ipod
- tideApp (free) yet another port of x-tide. My favourite tide prediction soft.
- Volvo Ocean Race (free) bit crap but compared to wading through their dreafully bloated website its actully quite handy, 'parently ther's a virtual spectator app as well. Lacks a map, wich is a shame, but does play vidoes.
I particularly like the fact that I've read NO instuctions, needed no help and speant no money on apps. OK lie I'm a geek I speant 59p on an ssh client. Its really simple powerfull and great. Love it.
Well done apple.
PS NEVER buy anything made by HP. God I'm begining to hate that company. Their printers don't work, 1 in three servers don't work on delvery. And with the possible exception of stuff from PC world their laptops are the worst I have ever seen. God their laptops got better when they bought compaq god....
