Question: multi users?
My wifeís got an ipod touch I fooled around with it, its fun and i want one lol
But is it possible to have multiple user accounts on the same computer or will that screw everybodyís ipod up. Or did she just confused the hell out of me she said one will erase the other? Huh I donít get it .I never had an ipod but I want one and I donít understand why that would be a problem, anybody have an issue with multiple accounts on a computer with different ipod touches

I have. For some reason iPod touches can only be synced to one computer (iTunes library). You could just make a user on your computer to sync your iPod touch with iTunes. Everyone can have access to that user account and sync to the ipod touch regardless of which app you sync.

There's no problem syncing multiple devices to the same library, I have two iPhones, an iPad and 5 iPods all synced to the same library using the same account. They all have different sync settings so they don't have the same things on, but they don't get confused and don't affect each other in any way.

Think of different user accounts on a computer like having multiple computers. Log in to your wife's account- sync her iPod with her iTunes library- log out. You log into your account then sync your iPod to your library.
Each account has it's own home folder wich holds music (iTunes), movies, photos, documents. They are all separate. The only thing shared between accounts (by default) is the applications folder.
Just remember if there is some music your wife has in her iTunes library that you also want, you will need to put it in your library as well- and this will double the disk space used for those songs.
