The automatic iTunes update (presumably to support the iPad) left my Touch unsyncable and iTunes prompted me with "iTunes requires a newer version of Apple Mobile Device Support. Uninstall both iTunes and Apple Mobile Device Support and reinstall."

Awwww, isn't that cute?..... a nod to Windows 95 from the guys at Apple.

it'll use bluetooth keyboards. Get a nice small one and epoxy it on.

"But if you don't care to read the whole review, let me give you a hint: I am typing this review on my laptop." - was part of a /. post about it.

and yeah.. my first iPad mod would probably have to add a keyboard.
