Well my children love my ipod soo much that they now want their own,i have the older one,not the one that has now come out,but they will be getting the newer version as it seem to do a few more things.Thankfully they come with ear phones,so i will not have to listen to them like i do when they are on their laptops.The other bonus in them getting them is that they do loads of different things,they are small to store and you do not have to put batteries in them.

I have never owned an ipod touch because i don't see the need to. I'm used to being freed of earphones plugging inside my ear, making it so painful. All i know is that, ipod itself is not cheap and now there's the newer version, it's going to be more expensive right? I have read about it in the papers, and it's supposed to have bigger screen and it has got touch screen ability. BUt GB wise, it did not improve much from the older version yet it's more expensive.

The new ipod seems to do things like videos aswell as pictures and a few other things that i can not remember compared to the ipod that i have.I think that with all the free games aswell as you tube and the music that they can do on one that will keep my children amused for hours,rather than taking it in turns using my ipod.

Sounds like great fun! Why don't you get your kids earbuds for the laptops? That is what I have on mine and I can listen to music loud while the kids sleep. And the ear buds have great sound. I would love to get this new tech stuff. I am lucky to have a laptop.

I did get them ear buds for the laptops that they got last year,but they were the cheap ones and they did not last very long.I think that with the ipod they can do just as many things on that as they canm their lap tops,plus i think that my youngest son will find it easier,to use.Perhaps they will leave my ipod alone when they get their ones,lol.

They should be glad to be able to have an ipod.. lol =D It's so much cheaper to buy it over there as compared to other countries such as mine.. lol =D I have seen the new ipod touch, and i dun find it fascinating at all. It's squarish looking and function wise is not as good as the previous version. On top of that, it's overly priced when i can get something much better with a top up of maybe 50 bucks?? haha

Mine is great and i think that there are loads of things that do not cost anything that you can do on there.I think aswell as hope that there are enough things on the ipod that will keep my children busy for along time,as they are always using mine all of the time.

my son wants an ipod for christmas,some of them are really cheap,much cheaper than what i expected them to be so i might get him one,just a quick question,if they don't use batteries how do they work

They have a battery pack that is inside them,they provide a wire so that you charge it up by using your pc or laptop,there is a plug that you can buy so that you can charge it in the mains.Hope that helps.

I can get to see my emails aswell as chat online on it,never tried mylot on it,so i am unsure of that,i have used my phone to have a look on mylot and that was great as i was stuck up the drs for ages and used my phone to have a quick look around on there aswell as check a few discussions that i had started on there.You tube is great on the ipod,also alot of other things,i can not play my bingo on there which is a real shame.

My daughter has an iPod Touch and she loves it. I connected her with my wireless router so she now has Internet access. The screen is way too small for much Web surfing, but it connects to iTunes.

My sons are forever using my ipod for facebook aswell as you tube and all those games that are free to get on there.I think that the are a great buy and really well worth the money.I would recommend an ipod for all ages as they are soo easy to use.The games are great as you get to tilt and shake the ipod.

Wow, that's really nice. I have experienced using an Ipod but its a really old model and is not touch screen. I liked it for its games, wide screen, portability, long play time, and large memory for songs. There are indeed other things that you can do with it but I only used it for games and music. I only use it when Im busy with something and the earphones do keep the music limited to my ears. Enjoy those iPods!^_^

I am in hope that when they get their ipod that they will leave mine well alone as that way i get to get to use mine more often.Just like you i have ear phones and i will say that an ipod is great for drowning out my husbands pc and the noise from the children,lol.

The wonders of technology! I guess it's better than them doing something else. I would rather have kids listening to music on the ipod. My son who's 10 is currently into downloading music into my ipod. I've created a separate folder for his music. It's just easier!

Hi jugs, I don't own any ipod touch yet and I'm happy with my new cellphone which I could get on the internet, listening to music and other interesting features as well. My son has an ipod with touch screen. He had left it here for sometimes to let me to experience the fun of using it with touch screen which I haven‘t come across before. It’s a gift he had got after writing reviews of the product. He was chose to be the article writer in the region he lives. Lol…I made full use of the device when it was with me. I listen to my favorite music via the earbuds as well. For the sake not to disturb others it’s nice to listen to music or play games using earphone or earbuds Happy posting

The bonus is the ear buds as that way my house will be alot quieter,which will also mean it will be alot calmer.The games are great that you can play on there with all the tilting and turning of the ipod,i think that it is great for all ages as it is soo easy to use all the the that it has on it.

My older son had a ipod touch and he hated his...who knows why because it does do so many things. My middle boy has an ipod phone or iphone...not sure what it is called. He loves his and is playing with it all the time. If he isn't listening to music, he is texting or checking his facebook or talking on it. I wish I would have gotten one as well....maybe someday.

I think that the ipod touch is great as there are soo many things that you can do on it and there are things that you can play even when you are not conected to the internet.I think that no matter what age you are there are always things that you can do with an ipod touch.

lots of my friends have them, we have even had them played at parties of ours, but this is where every body will fall about laughing , but I have no idea about ipods, how they work or how you load the music on or anything. How daft is that !! I would probably like one, as my tastes in music are really varied, but i am so ignorant about them, i can't go out and buy one as i have no idea

My sons are forever looking at videos aswell as watching people sing on youtube,that is where they find all the music that they like.There are lots of other things that they do on my ipod like play the free games that you can get on there aswell.They know more about the ipods than i do and i think that they are a good buy for all ages.I thought that they would be hard to use,but they are really easy.

Wow that's awesome! So we don't need to put battery? You mean, it's rechargeable? I think the older models have already implemented that. As for me I prefer iPod shuffle as it's smaller and the smallest among iPod models.

I love things that do not required a battery that you have to keep having to replace all the time.Also there are soo many things that you can do with an ipod touch,so i know that my children will not get bored with their ipods that i will be giving them on christmas.

I bought an iPod Touch a couple of weeks ago. It's the last generation, not the newest version. I bought it mostly to be an ebook reader so I don't always have to sit in front of the computer to read my ebooks. I moved most of the icons, like Youtube, music, and other stuff onto a second screen because I'm never going to use them. All I've done so far is download a reading app and a writing app. It's kind of a pain to use the tiny keyboard, but it's okay for notes.

There is a pen thing that you can get so that it is easier to type,rather than trying to use your fingers.I think with all the different things that you can do with an ipod it will be great,as this way the children will not get bored easily of their present that i get them.Last year they all got a note book each.

Make sure they remember to keep them charged, at least a little. My stepson found out the hard way that once the battery is totally uncharged, it won't charge again. I love my iPod touch too. I have been having a hard time with it since I got my new computer. I had a program on my old computer that converted movies to iPod touch format. I can't find it now, so, no movies.

I have always had mine run out of charge totally and i have soo far had no problems with mine.I am going to engrave their names on theirs,tht way they will know whos is whose without having to even turn it on.I think that they are great things for children to have as there are soo many things that they are able to do with them.

I have ipod classic with 160gig memory in it. I personally don't like touch screen anything but that's just my preference, guess there's nothing wrong with new ipod touch. One thing I like about my ipod is I can put every single cd into it. I don't have much but I'm getting there. I have little over 4,600 songs in it & I take it everywhere. I also have few hundred pictures in it as well. It is pretty handy little thing.

Sounds great,can you play games on the one that you have got,as this is the reason to why i wanted to get the ipod touch,as there are games on there that my younger son can do,also he can get to the games without any help.

Hiya jugs, My Husband has a good Ipod too but I don´t mess around with it as it´s got loads of personal stuff on it for his work. I would like one but I really don´t mind being as I am either. Do your Children know what they are having for Christmas then? I mean the Ipods do they know what make it is and everything already? I bet they will play with them for hours too. They have so many things on them now you can play all Day with them.
