I'm going to skip on this update for now. It seems minor and everything is working fine for me.

I'm in no rush to update either.

I'm a compulsive updater so I'll give it a whirl and let you guys know how it is for me.

I wondered what all the fuss was with the posts about the lack of copy and paste Embarassed

but now I have a Touch its just so bl**y frustrating not to have that basic functionality. I don't think you realise how many times a day you do it but you sure do when you suddenly find out you can't Evil or Very Mad

Nothing in the update that interests me, and as they say "if it ain't broke, don't fix it"

I would almost rather have copy and paste over Flash at this point. Heck, I remember have that functionality on an old HP handheld with WM. I just can't understand what is taking Apple so long, especially seeing they had something for the Newton.

I took the plunge and updated mine and noticed that after updating the software on my first gen iPhone it did a firmware update also. I didn't see any mention of this in the article that I read. Anybody else get a firmware update? I wonder what it was for.

248mb is a lot. I wanna see something sexy or new-to-user for such a large new file on my Mac.
Why should I upgrade/download??

also - (be easy)- what would Flash offer on my Touch?
I know it's an animation web tool but what are we missing?

Just that a lot of websites and video providers beyond YouTube use Flash. We're not getting the entire web in our pockets. I mean, goto Chevy or Saturn.com and look for a car.

Quick question. I am looking to buy an iPod Touch. Will it come with the 2.2 software installed or would I still have to pay $9.95 for the upgrade? I would hope that since the update came out awhile ago that new product would ship with the most up to date software. Thanks!

No you won't have to pay any upgrade charges, unless you pick up a really old iPod touch.
