    Comments about Apple 16GB Black 4th Generation iPod Touch:

    I bought myself this item for my birthday. I wanted it to listen to music and audiobooks. When I got it, it was beautifully packaged and I was amazed at all the functionality on this small device - from Facebook to Calendar and two cameras. There were over 20 apps already installed!

    I've had it now for about 3 weeks. I use it every day. I love the timer function under the Clock app, which allows you to customize the alert tone. I use it with the bell tower option for yoga meditation. The weather app is absolutely fabulous to check the temperature before running out the door. I find it useful for catching up on Facebook, though to type longer messages, I prefer a real keyboard. There's a nice Notes app. The camera quality is better than that on my laptop, but not as good as a real camera. Of course there are plenty of apps I'll probably never or rarely use like Passbook, Newsstand, Stock ticker.

    This is my first Apple product and I had some difficulty understanding how to navigate, customize and download, but I figured most things out without resorting to a user guide. I still haven't figured out how to accept a suggested auto-complete or re-arrange the application icons, and I struggled a little when switching wifi locations. I frequently end up hitting the delete key when I want to type 'm'. The earbuds which came with the iPod were the unpadded kind which I cannot use for more than a few minutes. One small annoyance -- I bought a case for it, but if it's in the case when I turn it on, it apparently misreads the ambiant lighting and doesn't increase the backlighting until I remove it partway from the case. I was not able to view my work webmail as the website didn't play well with the Safari browser (font too small to read well and couldn't control navigation if I enlarged the window).

    Moving data (photos) to my laptop was very easy and of course, there are iTunes synch and backup functions. The FaceTime app, which I have not used, which supports videotelephony with other iOS users, looks quite interesting.

    Surprisingly, and a little worrisome, it automatically populated my Calendar with the birthdays of all my Facebook contacts. I would prefer to have control over such things and not have them happen automagically without me knowing about it. I'll have to investigate if there are settings I could set to prevent this type of thing.

    Oh, and yes, I've listened to several audiobooks and all my albums (except my Christmas music), and watched a few FB videos. The sound quality is very satisfactory. The HD quality is fabulous.

    Overall, I love my new toy!
