iTouch Backups slow?

Since the release of iOS 4 there everyone is upgrading.  People who have the iPhone seem to be able to backup quickly, but it would seem that the iTouch takes an age to backup.  Anyone else experiencing this?

Update:

Cult of Mac are reporting upgrade issues here:

Phone 3G owners trying to upgrade to iOS 4 are reporting numerous issues with the update process, including updates that take hours and failed updates resulting in the sinister error 3002. Fortunately, though, there are ways to get around both by restoring your iPhone 3G instead of updating it………..

Apple release new Mac mini

New Apple Mac - Ongoing Issue Graphic

Apple have released the new Mini Mac.  We knew this was on the way and happy to see it.

The Mac mini has an “all-new” 1.4 inch thin aluminium enclosure and of course it is unibody.  It now also houses the power supply inside the Mac mini so there is no need for the block power it was supplied with in the past.  Apple’s new design also hides the air vents, but the fans are almost silent.  They have added an HDMI port and also supports Mini DisplayPort.  This is was a must have addition.  They have kept the FireWire 800 port, there are 4 USB 2.0 ports and they have even added and SD card slot.

They are using a NVIDIA GeForce 320M graphics card along with DDR3 Memory.  This has increased the speed from the previous Mac mini 2x.  You can expand the memory up to 8GB.  The Mac mini is powered by a 2.4 GHz or 2.66 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor with 1066MHz frontside bus and 3MB of L2 cache.

A nice little feature of the Mac mini is that they have made a removable bottom panel so it is easy for memory upgrades.

You can pick a HDD size of 320GB or 500GB which is a good amount of space.

Another welcome addition is AirPort Extreme 802.11n Wi-Fi.
