Can anyone answer a few questions about the Ipod Touch? My 15 yr old son wants one for Christmas so he can play games, watch videos, and listen to music. I have a problem with him having unlimited access to the web (we've had problems in the past with visiting inappropriate websites). Is there a way to limit the sites he can go to while using this product, or is full access required in order to use these features? Thank you

The iPod touch has some parental controls built in. You can disable Safari (the built-in web browser) entirely by going to Settings --> General --> Restrictions. Tap to turn on the restrictions, then enter a 4 digit passcode to access the restrictions that are available for the iPod touch.
There are some third party solutions that will allow you to filter within the Safari browser rather than disabling it entirely. I haven't personally used any of these, so I can't make a specific recommendation, but a search on Google should bring you some options and opinions.
I hope that helps!
