More business professionals and investors are carrying around an iPod touch these days to stay on top of their investments and their businesses. It's not surprising -- the iPod touch is quickly becoming a "must-have" product. Even the University of Missouri now requires that all incoming journalism students to have either an iPhone or an iPod touch in addition to their textbooks.

So we've decided to give our readers an opportunity to win one by giving away a free iPod touch with 8 GB of storage (worth $199).

That's enough to let you hold up to 1,750 songs, 10,000 iPod-viewable photos and 10 hours of video. Plus you get access to hundreds of games, movies, TV shows and the Internet.

But you can also download our very own DailyFinance iPhone/iPod touch app which gives you free real-time stock quotes, financial news from more than 3,000 sources, interactive charts, plus the ability to create up to 25 different portfolios and watchlists and much more. In fact, The New York Times said it was one of the most convenient apps available and iPhone Central describes the app as useful, fast and responsive and the amount of information available as staggering.

So enter now to win an iPod touch.

I think the next breakthrough will be digital chips that get inserted to us and we have to use that to pay for everything, and that way the government can keep tabs on us.

The next breakthrough will have to be a "YARD SALE GPS". With this device you would be able to punch in your home address as the starting point and then no matter what order you enter your yard sale addresses it will automatically put them in order from closest to farthest or vise/versa. A regular gps makes it so hard to go yard saleing when you're not sure where to start. :)

I think the next breakthrough will be a tv that you talk to to change the channel,volume etc. Then you won't have to get up off of your chair.
