again, i apoligize if this is the dumbest question of the century - i'm more than just a bit techno challenged..

thanks in advance!!
There is no built-in radio but there are many, many streaming radio apps. Some free, some not.

I second Wunder Radio that the other poster suggested. Great app.

There are a few apps for tv but I've not found any to be good.

If you're in the uk at any point tho this is an awesome site
http://iphone.tvcatchup.com/

use it in safari and it streams live tv in crystal clear quality even over 3g

You will only see this when you are syncing.

BUT - if I understand correctly and your entire music library, not just songs purchased on the iPod, is on the iPod but _not_ on the computer, you need to be very, very careful. When you go to sync with a new computer/hard drive, the default will be for it to wipe out your iPod and replace it with whatever is on the new hard drive. Then you will lose everything and have no way to get it back.

You would think you could easily get all of your music off the iPod and back to the computer, but you can't. I have never faced this particular situation, but there are 3rd party solutions to deal with this problem.

I have heard good things about this program for this problem. It used to be called iPod Rip, but Apple recently made them change the name. It's now iRip.
http://thelittleappfactory.com/irip/

Anyway, this software does exactly what you are talking about, which is lets you recover what's on your iPod.

I don't know if it does apps, but apps aren't as big of a deal. If you've purchased apps, you can download them again as many times as you want as long as you're using the same iTunes account. Unfortunately, music is not so simple.
I got a new laptop for Christmas and went from a PC to a Mac. My library is on my PC. After much research, I went with a download called Senuti -- it got great reviews and allowed me to transfer everything from my ipod to my new computer http://www.fadingred.com/senuti/. I also found a download called Super Remove Dead Tracks http://dougscripts.com/itunes/script...emovedeadsuper which will remove any of the annoying tracks in your iTunes library that have the exclamation point next to it. Finally, I downloaded Dupin http://dougscripts.com/itunes/itinfo/dupin.php which locates and deletes duplicate music files. It works very well, but I wish I was able to find software that worked this good for photos too

I think if you have a wireless network in your home you can now transfer your entire library via the "home sharing" capability in iTunes rather than trying to transfer from iPod/iPhone back to the new computer. I helped a friend do it this past week when he got a new iMac for his kids and transferred his music from his Macbook pro. I'm not 100% sure, but you should be able to go PC-Mac or the reverse as well.

Just my two cents.

ps-this is not for those who do not have their library on another computer to transfer or for those who do not have a wireless network in their home.

app: Dragon Dictation

I recently stumbled across an app called Dragon Dictation which looks like it will significantly change how I use the iPhone.

Dragon Dictation is speech-to-text recognition software that uses the Dragon NaturallySpeaking voice recognition engine to turn speech into text. It is _amazingly_ accurate. Once you're done speaking, the app produces the corresponding text, and you get a chance to tweak it. You can then send the text to an IM, an email, or to the clipboard.

As someone who has never really gotten the hang of typing with two thumbs, this little app is going to save me a heck of a lot of time.

And best off all, for the time being, Dragon Dictation is free.

Question for all you iphone users.
I got a Belkin car kit for the ipod or iphone for Christmas...I have a touch but I am hoping to get a iphone by the end of this month.

Anybody have this car kit? What are your views? I haven't opened it yet...don't have a new enough car to have a ipod/phone jack so DH thought this might work?

I have the Belkin and have tuned a few frequencies on the radio so that I can get a good signal. Others have complained that with a lot of local stations it is hard to get a clear signal. I have never had that problem

I live in an area with a lot of stations it doesn't work very good I bought a cassette adapter it plugs into the bottom of the Belkin and works perfect. If you are in an area with less stations they work great

These RF adapters are pretty much hit and miss. Each manufacturer has several different models out and none of them will work equally well for you. The best will work fine if you don't have a lot of strong stations on your FM dial. But if you travel anywhere near a large city in the course of your normal daily travels, you'll ultimately be frustrated by the need to continually change the frequency (get one with lots of choices) and re-arange the power cord so that your radio bets the best signal.
