    YES, you have helped plenty of folks! No question. What's nice is when that's the main focus. My main focus is to jab at Apple every time they let us down and sadly for us customers, that's been something occurring far too often, as of late. I mean, geez, this wifi issue has persisted for months and now it appears early on that 3.1.1 hasn't fixed it. That really s u c k s, as Touch's aren't trivially cheap. I make no pretense at being an expert at solving others problems--while I do that on rare occasion, I leave that up to others who patrol the forum for questions.

    I can envision you grimacing in pain as you typed that.

    a bit OT...here's a link to story on how Apple, Motorola, and Palm all managed to disappoint in the last few days: http://online.barrons.com/article/SB125270785338304683.html?mod=BOLhppdc

    To sum it up: We're spoiled!
    In the worst economy since the Big One, we're worried about THIS?
    No matter what companies do - there will always be some of that.
    Unavoidable.
    The problem with the interwebs is the rumor sites.
    They post B-S for hits, and get everyone all riled-up.
    Stop looking at those, and reality is much more palatable...

    I'm not sure it takes a story like that to get everyone riled up. The facts of the matter do that with no help from journalists.

    Why the heck did Glen Beck and Keith Olbermann, ummm, I mean you guys, decide to derail this topic???

    Anyhow all non-iPod Touch related matters aside, what are the chances that we can make enough e-noise to get a renowned technology related website to post a short article about this issue? 3.1.1 does correct a few of the bugs that I have experienced in 3.0, so I wouldn't mind if Apple could release an iPod Controls pop-up fix within a months time.

    Great to see intelligent posts like yours in this forum.

    I thought I didn't know how to adjust some new controls in 3.1.1.

    The loss of accessing the music controls is a major let-down. I have sent feedback to Apple via the iPod touch feedback page and hope Apple will bring that function back.

    Otherwise I will downgrade if possible.

    Because the topic is dead.
    We know what happened, and all you can do is send feedback.
    So, some levity is fine.
    Lighten up compadré!

    2 pages of off-topic discussion about Microsoft vs Apple but no signs of solution. Looks like the only hope is to wait for apple's firmware fix. Eh...

    heh I thought I was the only one.

    AAPL - since you seem to have all the answers, any idea why Apple won't just integrate a function that actually lets us disable app/game sounds in the Settings? Why not let us prioritize our music?

    No, because I don't work for Apple.
    Like I said - send feedback.
    I'll keep saying that because it's the ONLY way I know of to get something changed/fixed.

    I had a bunch of people send feedback about the previous issue and that was several months ago. Apple has yet to even acknowledge the issue. Clearly, they care more about aesthetics than usability.
