Apple’s New Weapon

It's a communication device! It's a translation device! It's an iPod!

Actually, it makes a lot of sense, especially the part about not having to train soldiers to use it because they already know the fundamentals of using an iPod. And I'm impressed with the quality--they don't feel shoddy at all.

Copy/paste issues aside, the iPod Touch is a pretty great device. It's amazing for everything except playing music! [Razz] [I think the 'wheel' interface is better for this purpose.]

So, do you have to jailbreak the iPod touch, like the iPhone? Or is the DoD putting all these fancy tools in the apps store?
