Music just got smarter
Remember what it felt like to flip through your CD or record collection? Cover Flow brings that feeling back. Just turn iPod touch on its side and flick through your music to find the album you want to hear. Tap the cover to flip it over and display a track list. Tap again to start the music. Even view the lyrics while you're listening.
Say you're listening to a song you really like and want to hear other tracks that go great with it. The Genius feature finds songs in your library that go great together and makes a Genius Playlist for you. You can listen to the playlist right away, save it for later, or even refresh it and give it another try. Count on Genius to create a mix you wouldn't have thought of yourself.
It's easy to fill up your Apple iPod touch with audio and video from your iTunes library. All you have to do is choose the playlists, videos, and other content you want to sync and let iTunes do the rest.
Games designed for iPod touch technology are just a tap away. Browse hundreds of games from the App Store right on your iPod touch, download what you want, and you're ready to play.
Many of the games created for the 2nd generation iPod touch utilize the Multi-Touch powers to give you precise, fingertip control over game elements. Use your finger to drag your pieces around the board in chess or dice games. Or pinch to enlarge or shrink your view, rotate your character left or right, or just tap to make a selection.
The built-in accelerometer actually responds to your movements, so you can tilt and turn your iPod touch to control the action. It's perfect for racing games, where your entire iPod touch acts as a steering wheel, and for tap-and-tilt games such as Super Monkey Ball, in which your character rolls to your movements. And, with the 3.5-inch widescreen display you get pretty crystal clear viewing.
Tune your run

When you get back to your computer, sync your iPod touch via iTunes and transfer your exercise data to nikeplus.com, where you can track your workouts, set goals, and challenge friends.

Comments about Apple iPod touch 2nd Gen 8GB:
This ipod is awesome! If you are a teenager like me it takes a chunk out of your wallet but it is worth it! The wi-fi works great, infact I am writing this review on the iPod right now. The wi-fi isn't the only great thing about it, the picture quality is amazing and the touch screen doesn't seem to scratch at all. I sugest this iPod to anyone who wants a new electronic toy to play with : )
