The iPod Touch Unboxing!

That’s right, my replacement podcast resources is finally here, and I share the unboxing with the viewers here tonight via YouTube:

Initial thoughts?  It’s pretty sweet – love the App Store, the WiFi, email access, twitter access, youtube, and so much more!  A few downsides though – no built in camera, and no microphone – I know it’s not for phone, but recording audio snippets would be ideal.  There are apps you can download but need a mic and with just the audio jack, not sure I am gonna be able to do one of the things I had been dying to do after getting this.  There may still be a way so Googling and researching to see.  In the meantime, we shall wait and see!  Look for a more detailed review of this in upcoming weeks!  Until then, just a couple reminders for everyone:

The Scott Kelby Worldwide Photowalk is this Saturday in cities all over the world.  There are still openings and it’s free to join.  You could win prizes too, so check for a city near you at to see.  You can still join the fun if the group leader is okay with it, but if you are not registered, then you can’t contribute images or be eligible to win!

The OnOne Software Plugin Suite 4.5 Giveaway is going on for the entire month of July, but time is starting to tick against you as we are halfway through the month.  This is a $500 retail value and some lucky winner will walk away with this package for free!  Details and rules for participation are at the Flickr thread. If you own the software already, tell a friend as it’s an NFR copy.  If not, then chime in as the deadline will be here before you know it!

    Its cool. I’m on my 2nd iPod Touch after leaving my first one on the 17:53 from London Paddington!!!! Having worked for Microsoft in the past, its kind of hard to say, but I think the iPod touch is just a wonderful piece of kit. Very cool!!

      I feel your pain Kevin – mine was stolen from my car (well, the car was stolen too, but at least that was recovered, as you recall… LOL)

    I’ve been using my Touch for almost a year now. Have you checked out the remote control plugin for Canon Cameras? $10, very cool, but you’ve got to shoot tethered to your computer. Since I’m usually shooting outside it’s not a great help to me, but I bet it would be amazing for studio work!

      Not yet, but that was a contributing factor in getting this over another ipod classic

    Apparently there should be a new touch on the shelves by the end of the year…

    I’ve been using my iPhone’s Voice Memos app to record my podcast for the last couple of weeks and it’s great. Granted, it’s not as great as my condensor mic attached to a compressor attached to a mixer into GarageBand, but it’s 10 times easier to set up and easy to do on lunch hour or on the road. The trick is to hold the mic end of the phone towards your mouth. Talk directly into it. Do NOT use your ear buds, because that mic picks up too much ambibent noise.

    Sounds great.
