After a couple more days with Snowy, I must say that all except the printer issue is going really well and smooth. I didn't experience the same problem that you were.

Concerning the iPod presentation ... I think you hit the nail on the head. I'm no longer really productive with my iTouch and that's why I bought myself an iPhone. I think the iTouch is probably more and more going to be a gaming device.

What I was most disappointed with was the fact that I still can't synchronize my iTouch over a wireless connection.
