iPod Touch 2.1... thanks Apple!

Finally... the 2.1 firmware update for the iPod Touch fixes a number of "big" problems that the 2.0 version introduced:

  • Backup time in my iPod with about 40 applications went down from 8 hours to 1 minute... (something was really wrong before...)
  • Updating application is "a lot" faster
  • Updated applications retain their position instead of being repositioned to the end
  • Applications don't "hang" the iPod anymore (so far...)
and there are also a number of improvements including the Genius button while playing songs, and also a really good one: The podcasts list now displays how much time left you have on the ones you haven't finished hearing... this is great for the long podcasts I listen to (TWIT, BOL) which takes me several sessions to complete.

All in all, a very needed updated, specially for the backup issue... thanks Apple!


  • The iPOD touch is AWESOME!
