Nike+ & iPod Touch/iPhone
Looks like there is a lot of talk about the release of Nike+ to be used on the iPod Touch and the iPhone. The ups side I see out of this combination that that you really will not need a computer to upload your running logs to the internet. Using the 3G and the WiFi, you will be able to take advantage of these features and upload your logs instantly.
On the other hand, the idea of taking my iTouch to my runs does not excite me. Being bigger and "heavier", I really prefer my Nano. But just thinking that I will not need to hook up my Touch to the PC seems worth the while to me.
Debate is going on, on whether the iPhone is going to use its GPS capabilities to track the run and not use the Nike sensor in the shoe. Well, if it didn't need the sensor and it were going to use the GPS, then it wouldn't be Nike+ & iPhone would it? I would be just teh iPhone.
Still I am waiting eagerly till the product can be used with the iTouch.
