iPod Touch gets an update

The news that interested me from Mac World '08 the most is the news that the firmware is moving to version 1.1.3. The big additions to the Touch are:

  • Mail
  • Maps
  • Stocks
  • Notes
  • Weather
The controversial issue is that Apple are charging $20 for the privilege! This is the first time I heard of the consumer being charged for a firmware update. To pay or not to pay, that is the question.

The answer? Well, I'm downloading it right now. Sounds like a great update to me, especially to get e-mail on the Touch. I hope it works out well. I'll post something further when I've had a chance to mess with the new features.
