Notes, weather, stocks, mail, maps. Will cost $20 for current Touch owners, all new Touch units bought will include the features already.
Whoo hoo! - I wonder when we can start Downloading?

Well, it sure sounds like it will be available today just like the update for the iPhone will be today.
I hope, I am watching updates on engadget, but they didn't make it really clear to me at least.

The more and more I think about it the $20 is complete B.S. for us so called early adpoters. $20 isn't that much, but if the people who buy one tomorrow get the apps for the same price I originally paid, why am I being punished?

This was a good decision. I'm not so sure about the paying for the update part, but I know it'll be on Apple's side.

A buddy of mine (actually, many buddies) have Touches that they jailbroke only to get these applications on them. Now that won't be necessary.

BTW - I just thought of asking something. Has anybody upgraded a jailbroken phone/touch to 1.1.3 from 1.1.2? If so, did it work? Did you get bricked? I'd like to know so that I can warn the guys not to update if necessary.

Apple probably hasn't put it up yet. The keynote isn't on their site yet, and I have a feeling they're quite busy over in Cupertino right now.

Actually I just upgraded. I just had to download the new version of iTunes and upgrade to 1.1.3 then it shows up as an option on your iTunes

Yeah I have jailbroken and unbroken a few times, I liked the iPhone apps the best, but the charging for them part when new purchasers are getting for free is BS. But I will still pay for them anyway.... I guess..... The only other JB apps I liked were Blackjack and the NES emulator, but I can live with out them.

are you guys sure these features will come on new iTouches? I haven't seen anything from Apple that says so.

I can't imagine any reason for Apple to charge this fee for pre-existing iTouches, while not adding a premium to new ones... especially so soon after the iPhone price drop fiasco...

i may be wrong, but i bet EVERYONE will have to pay the $20...

maybe Apple just wanted to give people one more reason to get an iPhone as opposed to an iPod touch.
