Some songs on my iPod and through iTunes seem to be running slow - just enough to be noticeable and to drive me crazy. Songs that I've downloaded recently seem fine until I play them enough, and then it's almost like they wear out - what gives? [more inside]

iPod Touch for mother-in-law. We've just decided to give my partner's mother an iPod Touch, and need your suggestions for apps and podcasts. She is a 65 year old woman, travels often, takes care of her grandson sometimes, and is new to all iPod technology. We also need your tips on how to set it up from afar tonight, and help her with the inevitable questions down the road. [more inside]

What's a decent iPhone app for downloading/listening to podcasts? I'm trying to avoid syncing it to iTunes every time I want to get new podcasts, so I'd like to use this app to subscribe to one and let me know when new episodes are available (that's the important part), listen to them, and delete them. Didn't find much of anything in the AskMeFi archives except a reference to Podcaster, but does anyone have any personal recommendations? Free or not-free. Thanks!

I can't really be looking for the Holy Grail of MP3 players, can I? Big drive, SSD, straightforward file management and control over my music collection - too much to ask? Which one do I pick, or how do I make a current one in to what I want? [more inside]

I have a new computer and an old iPod touch. I would like to put all my CDs on a currently blank iTunes program my new computer and then transfer those songs to my iPod touch without interfering with what is already on my iPod. I don't care that the touch songs won't be transferred to the computer, I just don't want to lose all the content on the iPod. Is this possible?

I'm trying to buy some warm gloves that are designed to work with the iphone. In my internet search there seem to be several different brands that work in different ways but few reviews. These are going to be gifts and I need both a man's and a woman's glove and, since both recipients live in cold climates, I want ones where their fingers can stay covered while they operate their iphone. Can anyone point me to a review of these gloves or have any experience to share?

Sure there is a way I can calibrate my 2G iPod Touch accelerometer.
It is off, big time. No matter the angle, it thinks I'm tilting it way far left. The accelerometer still works, as individual apps with calibration functions allow for recalibration, and those apps work beautifully.

When are refurbished models of the latest generation ipod touches likely to go on sale from Apple? How much are they probably going to cost? I realize this isn't an exact science, but educated guesses based on the history of refurbished ipod touches (or any other insight) would be helpful. Thanks!

Apple Touch feature question: can the new Touch remember which particular song or video I was playing in each of several folders, and the point at which I stopped listening to the song or video, so that later I can get back to it quickly? These are features that Tivo has nailed for TV recording and I'd love to find an mp3 + pocket video player that can do the same thing. If not the Touch, is there another portable player that can do those things?

what sort of device can I buy to show my google tasks next to a corkboard, so I see them on my way out the door?
do any photo frames do wireless sync? my first thought was a cheap old itouch, but the screen is tiny, and it does more than I need.
low power use would also be a plus (i.e. not a laptop or cheap desktop with wall mounted monitor, which I also thought of - I do have an extra 17" sitting around)
I could consider switching to another tasks app if required for the best solution, though I do enjoy gtasks in gmail and calendar.
