I found an i Pod Touch that has been sitting in the closet for about a year and want to update the firmware operating system [ed note: it’s actually called “i OS” now]. I have an i Pod Touch I won at a trade show, then lost about a year ago… Seriously, though, it’s pretty easy to update the software on your i Pod Touch, i Pod Classic or any other i Pod device, regardless of how old it is: Just plug it in to a computer running i Tunes and once it sees the device, it’ll prompt you to update things.
Is it black and has “You’re A Winner” etched on the back?
