It’s 500 bloody megabytes!!!!! So much for moving to the country and working from home - I’m gonna have ot move back to the city just to keep up with Apple’s increasingly humungous downloads.


This is a happy day indeed!  I have been waiting for a GarageBand version that will run on an iPod Touch, so I can use it in my elementary music classes.  Thank you, Apple!
