The iTouch is pretty useless unhacked
Authored by: joh on Nov 07, '07 06:54:55AM

Really. As an iPod, it's less than optimal because it has no hardware buttons for volume and such. As a PDA or an internet tablet, it lacks email and a calendar you can actually use to add things to. But jailbreak it and install Mail.app and Notes and Maps, and fix the calendar, and install the Terminal and ssh, and the eBook reader -- and you have a great internet tablet and PDA and Unix server that fits in every pocket. And it can play Music and Movies, too!

Besides, for quite a time now jailbreaking it was the only way to be able to fix the TIFF exploit in CoreGraphics. Every iPhone and iPod touch that was *not* hacked is vulnerable to a remote root exploit.
