    After some users complained of the iPod Touch having issues with its LCD screen, it seems Apple has fixed the problem with the release of the 1.1.1 firmware. The iPod Touch was initially criticised for its screen being inferior to that of the iPhone despite the two using very similar hardware, however users are now reporting that their screens are much better, with issues such as the screen showing dark or negative images being resolved. It is speculated that the improvements are due to altered brightness and contrast settings – which would cast some doubt upon the original diagnosis that the LCD coating had been incorrectly applied. Although there seem to be mixed results, if you have an iPod Touch you should definitely give the new firmware a test and see if it offers any improvements for you. It is a 150MB download which should be available via iTunes.

    Is it me, or is touchscreen technology one of the coolest innovations to come along?
